My name is Leona Cole and I’m starting a website with canvases to sell and offering stitch guides for any canvas that you may have.  I worked in a needlepoint shop for 17 years and have decided to start my own business.  This will be a web-based business for now.

I have taught many classes and am willing to come to your area to teach a class.  I usually work with your canvases.  Each canvas can be different.  I teach all levels of stitchers in the same class from beginners to advanced.  I can make the stitch guides easy or hard according to the preference of the individual stitcher. I have you send the canvases to me in advance of the class and I work up a stitch guide and pick threads.  I will work with the threads you have bought. I limit my classes to 20 students.

I have taught classes for the Jackson Stitchery Guild and the Montgomery ANG.  I can provide references if needed.

I guess you are wondering why I’ve named my business Three Dogs Stitching.  I have 3 Jack Russell Terriers and love them very much and wanted a unique name.

I’m thinking about starting a Kennel Club and having different canvases and stitch guides for each month of the year.

  1. Love the new business venture and kudos to you and all who helped you get the website up and running!
    The photos of Leono’s completed canvases, though gorgeous, simply can’t capture just how spectacular they truly are up close through the human eye. A fan I AM!

  2. This is fabulous, Leona! You develop wonderful stitch guides and are a wonderful teacher. Three Dogs Stitching is a great thing!

  3. Your stitched canvases are beautiful. I would like some information on the three canvases that are women please. One is in pink with feathers, one is in black, and one is in blue. Thank you, Carolyn

  4. I want a stitch guide for the Amanda Lawford canvas with the three fish swimming from left to right, squares at the top and bottom and curling lines also top and bottom. I saw yours on Jane of Chilly Hollow about a month ago and would love to hear from you how much it would cost.
    Thanks so much!

      1. It is an Amanda Lawford canvas, three orange fish facing to the right. Top and bottom of canvas have black and white borders….I would love to purchase that stitch guide if we are talking about the same canvas.
        I can use Pay Pal or send you a Money Order or however you want the payment made.

          1. I have had this canvas for a long time and never could figure out how to stitch it. Now I am so excited to get started on it. We stitchers always love to begin new projects don’t we?
            I will be away from my desk from 10/18-10/22 and I may not have internet access until I return so if you don’t hear from me immediately, that is why and I will do PayPal soon as I get home-or sooner if I can get a connection.
            Thank you so much. Ann
