Handmade Heirlooms by Nicole

Needle-worked items made from the heart to be cherished for years to come!

I am so happy to be a part of this group of talented artisans!

My name is Nicole Amaro and I am from Massachusetts.  I love everything that involves needles, stitching, rug hooking, punch needle... you name it!  I have had a finishing services business since 2012 where I help fellow stitchers turn their handiworks into heirlooms. Ornaments, pillows, pin drums, stand-ups, hornbooks <-- too many options to list.

If you would like to purchase any of the items you see this month, please email me at nicoleramaro@gmail.com.  I am no longer sending out Paypal invoices.  I accept personal checks and the friends and family option on Paypal if initiated by the purchaser once we confirm via email that the item is available.  Some of the items listed this month I will happily make to order. Feel free to email me.  (keep in mind I am on the east coast so if I'm sleeping, I'll email you ASAP --- sales will be on a first come/first served basis. )

You can also find me on Facebook if you search "Handmade Heirlooms by Nicole".

This listing is for a darling cross stitched piece mounted on a grey wooden plaque. The design is a portion of one by With Thy Needle, and uses a mixture of specialty hand-dyed flosses and DMC cotton. It is stitched on a piece of linen, framed with rickrack, and mounted using brass furniture tacks. It has a natural jute cording on the back for hanging. The piece measures 8" x 8". Please email me if you are interested in purchasing this piece. I am happy to take orders as well as long as we discuss the details beforehand. Thank you for looking and be sure to check out the other items this month!
This listing is for a rug hooked heart that I drew and hooked myself using some red 100% wool fabric, and then mounted on a vintage mini oil can I found while on a hunt for treasures in upstate NY this summer. It is backed with a red wool and I finished if off with a calico bow and it is stuffed with a combination of wool snippets and polyfil. It measures 6" at the widest point, and stands 8" tall. The price shown includes shipping costs. I am happy to take orders for this item as long as we discuss beforehand so please feel free to send me an email.
SOLD Thank you! This offering is for a punchneedle design by With Thy Needle that I punched and mounted on a wooden hornbook that has been painted a country blue to match the design. It is punched using high quality Valdani varigated floss on weaver's cloth, and measures 4" x 9". The design is finished off with a handmade DMC cotton floss cording with a bow tied at the top. The price includes shipping costs - I will not be taking orders for this item at this time; only the one shown in this listing is available currently. Thank you for looking!
This listing is my favorite! It's another sweet design by With Thy Needle stitched on a piece of linen using all hand dyed flosses as suggested by the designer. Once finished, the design is mounted onto a custom cut piece of acid free mat board and organic cotton batting, and then I affixed it to a wooden heart that I painted with a corresponding acrylic paint. I added a ribbon hanger for you to display. This could certainly be left out year-round -- ***Hearts*** aren't just for Valentine's Day decor! The heart measures 5" at it widest and longest points. I have two of these available, and could take orders for several more as long as we discuss beforehand so please send me an email. The price shown includes shipping.
