Who Paints Canvases from Photographs? UPDATED

People are always looking for recommendations for artists who will transfer a photograph to a needlepoint canvas. After all, there are special places, people or animals we'd like to stitch if only....

This came up on Facebook's needlepoint group.  Listed below are the shops and companies folks recommended.  Some paint by hand, some use transfer printers.  You'll have to follow up with each for samples of their work and pricing.  I have no personal experience with any of these folks so I can't tell you who does the best work.  These are recommendations from customers or postings from folks who offered their services.

  1. Needle Nicely has a wonderful shop painter. Her calligraphy is superb and her graphic designs are the best.
