At its core, needlepoint is an art form that has documented the connections between friends and family for centuries. Fresh eyes are taking on the industry and what better way to celebrate this rejuvenation than through collaboration.

Our Common Thread is a needlepoint design collective that fosters a community of mutual empowerment and support through a biannual series of virtual exhibitions. Each exposition will showcase the works and stories of a selected group of designers and their interpretations of a specified theme.

Through collaboration within the needlepoint design world, we aim to celebrate creativity, community and craftsmanship while revitalizing the needlepoint industry for a brighter future. 

For our first design showcase, we have invited a number of designers from both the US and across the pond to dream up a design surrounding Pantone’s Color of the Year: Living Coral. However each designer interprets the theme is entirely up to them. We look forward to sharing with you what our artists have in store for Our Common Thread’s first design showcase.

Stay tuned for more insight into the minds of the creatives behind Our Common Thread and keep your eyes peeled for the design reveal on May 1st, 2019!
