European Needlepointers Rejoice! UPDATED

I've just learned about Unwind Studio, a needlepoint kit company based in Portugal. Run by Cristina Cerqueira, the company licenses designs from local artists and kits them up for your stitching pleasure.  The designs are all perfect for fancy stitches, by the way.  There's lots of room for them in those blocks of color.  The designs are also not just your average design, either.  They are much different than what we have available in the USA.

The website is just being built so their Etsy store has more stock available just now.  The canvases appear to be printed, usually on 14 count canvas, but are available on other sizes by special request.  You can also buy just the canvas or have it kitted with wool or cotton floss for you.

Congratulations, Cristina!

UPDATE:  Cristina says she is working with various shops in the more touristy towns of Portugal to provide kits for needlepointers looking for something to remember their vacation by.  Hurrah!
