Good morning and good health to you all! 
We at The Canvasback cannot thank you enough for the outpouring of support for a little business. I have been in the shop every day for weeks now filling your orders, pulling fibers for your projects, processing your beautiful finished pieces and shipping, shipping, and shipping. Every phone call, every email requesting any product is a wonderful way to exchange greetings and news with people we miss so much. Thank you for your loyalty and support. 
New canvases are arriving daily, and we now have an abundance of trunk show canvases from Kate Dickerson. I encourage you to click here and view her collection. We have almost all of it. If we don't have what you want, we can order it.
I’m also happy to FaceTime-shop with you.
Remember, needlepoint, like yoga and meditation, calms you and soothes you. It changes your breathing and your heart rate. It brings stability to an otherwise unstable world. Take some time each day to treat yourself to the joy and calm of needlepoint. 
My team and I wish you good health, safety, and peace.
