CINDY LASS MOVES IN TO THE EXCITING

WORLD OF ART IN THREAD.

 

 CINDY LASS NEEDLEPOINT HAS ARRIVED

The new Cindy Lass Needlepoint logo

In recent years, a boom in knitting was fueled by celebrity fans including Kate Moss and Julia Roberts pledging their love for the relaxing hobby.

Now, it seems the latest trend is needlepoint, a form of embroidery that uses X-shaped stitches to form a picture – and it is here to stay, as it rapidly re-establishes itself as “the go to” hobbie for 25-35 year olds.

 

 

I was asked 2o years ago to give my artwork on greeting cards around the world but I didn’t want to, but something about needlepoint engaged me, so I would like to share my paintings and my journey with everyone in this new wonderful way. Connecting through colour, I wanted to find a way to raise our awareness and vibration by taking us back into our hearts through colour and joy and allow people to connect in this way

In this non-stop, electronic world we live in, it’s true -we ARE it would seem “connected”. However, we think too much in our heads and these communication devices in fact “disconnect” us from one another and from ourselves. Our heart is where our passion is and our feelings –we need to go back there… we need this energy in our heart to beat with those around us.

Cindy Lass Needlepoint will be selling her exclusive needlepoint kits for the first time at the Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, London N22 7AY on the 11th to the 15th of October 2017.

Please use the code CIN17 and you will get a special discount for tickets to the show.

We look forward to seeing you at our stand which is TG116,

I created and curated “All Our Hearts Beat As One” Exhibition (link)  and Cindy Lass Needlepoint is for me, the next step.  I am a self-taught artist.  My art is my passion, and now it’s time to share this with you. I have chosen 7 of my favourite paintings for the launch of Cindy Lass Needlepoint. I hope you enjoy stitching and creating the designs as much as I enjoyed painting them. Each has its own story, each has its own energy…You really do not need any special skills to make my kits! Just the intent to take time out for yourself and connect to your heart for a moment in time.
I sell to complete beginners and experienced stitchers alike. My goal is for our hearts to beat as one – to use our heartbeats together to change the world!
Stitch from the Heart x
Love
Cindy
* Please note these are needlepoint KITS, not finished pictures or cushions. My kits contain either a colour printed canvas or a coloured chart from which to count the design onto plain canvas.
