NEEDLEPOINT INC.: TO GIVE PATIENCE, TRANQUILITY, BEAUTY, CREATIVITY
 TO CHILD OR GROWN-UP -- TRY NEEDLEPOINT
 SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- What better gift for a child or adult this holiday season than patience, peace of mind, tranquility and a refuge from stress and chaos? What better gift than needlepoint!
 "None better," says Diane Nerheim, founder of Needlepoint Inc., who is leading increasing numbers of young people, as well as adults, to embark upon the wonderful pastime that inevitably produces family heirlooms.
 "Here at Needlepoint Inc.," Nerheim says, "we have classes in needlepoint for kids -- second-, third-, fourth-graders. It's amazing how they take to it. You should see what they produce."
 "Christmas is a special time to introduce a child to the art of needlepoint," Nerheim says. Needlepointed tree ornaments, tree skirts and Santa stockings can be made along with all sorts of gifts. Eyeglass cases, slippers, pillows, framed sayings, all customized and personalized in needlepoint are but a few ideas among many.
 And the Christmas season is not limited to a few weeks around Dec. 25 at Needlepoint Inc. They maintain a year-round Christmas room, chock-full of hand-painted needlepoint canvases exclusively devoted to Christmas.
 "No gift could be more personal or certain to be forever treasured than the canvas you custom-design and stitch to completion," says the head needlepointer who, before she designed her own store, traveled the world far and wide visiting needlepoint stores.
 Wherever she traveled she dreamed of creating her own store that would provide premiere full service to needlepointers, with an amazing wealth of canvases, fibers, custom-design services and finishing service -- the one-stop needlepointer's dream.
 Needlepoint Inc. opened at 251 Post St., San Francisco, CA 94108, on famed Union Square, just four years ago. The shop, already doubled in size, has become the largest needlepoint designer/distributor in the United States, with the fullest and most varied supply of hand-painted canvases and stock of fibers and wool (37 varieties, 557 colors) in America. It has 15,000 customers from around the world. Customers often order by phone by using the toll-free 800-345-1622.
 "You will see our bright yellow bags with our brilliant black Needlepoint Inc. logo all over the world," Nerheim concludes. To many stitchers, it's a flag of recognition.
