Northern Pine Designs joins the list of exhibitors

Linda Lachance is the designer behind the name Northern Pine Designs, a business she started 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. Many of Linda's themes are drawn from nature and the idea of windows is found throughout her work. The nature themes include many designs of loons, pine trees, lakes and sunsets, snowflakes, butterflies and so on.  Be sure to visit the Northern Pine Designs website to preview her amazing designs. I am particularly enamoured with Abalone which incorporates a real shell into the needlepoint.
