Linda Lachance, the designer, started her business, Northern Pine Designs, in 1987, initially with a line of counted cross-stitch designs.
The business has grown and now includes many different charted canvaswork *needlepoint* designs which incorporate a variety of wonderful threads, stitches and textures in the creation of geometric designs. One of the most popular themes, the series of canvaswork butterflies, has inspired stitchers everywhere.
Many of the designer's themes are drawn from nature and the idea of windows is found throughout her work. The windows theme is echoed in Frosty Panes, Window on Trout Lake, Stained Glass, and a series of new teaching designs including Iris Stained Glass Window and Gothic Stained Glass. The nature themes include many designs of loons, pine trees, lakes and sunsets, snowflakes, butterflies and so on.
The designs included on this website are charts only, packaged with photo and complete stitch instructions. There are charts for counted cross-stitch and canvaswork designs. The Other Products section contains useful accessories which are great to give as Christmas gifts. Check out our New Designs.
