Berdorf's Needlepoint Window for Christmas 2014

Lisa HK just posted photographs on Facebook she took of one of Bergdorf's Christmas windows in New York City.   She says that the window has both stitched and unstitched canvases that are portraits of literary figures.  The window also uses felting and macramé.

Here are more photographs. The red Literature window photos are the ones with needlepoint portraits.

Here is more about the inspiration behind the window series.  There are some photos of the computer stitched portraits and the felted bust but nothing else.
