Dear stress, let's break up.
Deriving from a technique engineered by the Ancient Egyptians, needlepoint is a luxurious art form that has been passed down for generations.
Needlepoint empowers people of all artistic levels to be creative on the go, stitch handmade keepsakes and most importantly, unplug, all while relieving some stress!
Each piece acts as a couture heirloom to celebrate or commemorate the various occasions life throws at us.
Whether you are a beginner, an enthusiest or have been meaning to pick it back up, I hope my collection inspires you.
Welcome, Come On In!
I am so excited you're here! My name is Brooke and I am the creator behind Thörn Alexander.
There are SO many reasons why you should needlepoint and I hope to ignite your curiosity so you can spread that creativity of yours like wildfire.
My soul stitching journey began at the age of twenty-one while I was living in an art gallery in London. It wasn't until then that I gave in and fulfilled my mother's wishes to start needlepointing. It may have taken a couple of decades, but to my pride's dismay, I loved every second of stitching my first project.
In the event you need a little push, I made you a list of ten reasons why you should needlepoint. Check it out, give it a read and let's get stitching!

These modern makers are diving into canvases with contemporary style, quips, colors, and creativity, grabbing moments of zen sewing a Warhol-esque image of Tupac or a Bowie-inspired belt, reviving a threatened art through a new lens and adding some humor, leaving everyone in stitches.

I say we're experiencing a needlepoint revolution in Omaha. The young women are taking to it like crazy. It's only taken 10 years to get here, but it's been worth it. Makes us rethink our design orders. So glad you popped up on the scene.
