We are so glad you're here! The Canvasback is your ready resource for all things needlepoint! 
The Canvasback has been serving the needlepoint community since 1974. Located in Northfield, Illinois, we offer one of the 10 largest selections of designer canvases, fibers, needlepoint supplies and accessories in the stock ready for purchase or shipment. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will help you with project selection, fiber choices, and finishing. Turn your stitched pieces into pillows, framed art, ornaments, stockings, tallis bags, belts, handbags and so much more!  Our beginner classes will help you get started. One-on-one instruction is available as well. Experienced stitchers enjoy weekly scheduled classes, quarterly workshops, and three-day seminars. At The Canvasback we stay with you until your project is complete and you are happy!

Holiday Update

Though we have all had to deal with one challenge or another in this COVID world, as we enter this holiday period, one thing is certain: we at The Canvasback are so grateful for your loyalty and support. You are more than our customers, you are our friends. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to say thank you to all of you!

Thank you especially this year for being understanding as we work to offer the best service, biggest inventory, and happiest atmosphere in a world that none of us expected. Thank heavens for needlepoint! The activity of refuge! Thank you for your patience as we do all that we can to protect everyone’s health and comply with CDC rules and guidelines. We will remain open for our regular hours during the holiday season: 10-5 M-F and 10-4 Saturday. Please wear your mask and use our hand sanitizer. We must limit customer occupancy to 2-3 customers at a time. We are happy to bring purchases to your car or ready them in advance for your pick-up. Appointments are welcome and FaceTime has been a great way to shop from home.

There are so many wonderful new canvases arriving every day following the virtual market we participated in last month. Special orders and store orders are rolling in. The big new Susan Roberts Trunk Show opens right after turkey day! Come see what arrived today. Lots of last-minute gift items too!

Until we see you next, Happy Thanksgiving to you all and we hope you all get the wishbone!
