Our May Trunk show from Amanda Lawford and DC Designs is in store now! Featuring a wide selection of designs and price points- there’s something for everyone! Based in New York, New York, Amanda Lawford has been painting and designing canvases since 1975. She’s even done a stint at the Royal School of Needlework, in England! A newer artist of ours, Derek Clarke of DC Designs, brings us canvases for the modern needlepointer, while keeping an eye on affordability.
