Giveaway #672 : Win a Cindy Lass Tiger Lily Needlepoint Kit - closed - winner Sarah Austin


In our hectic modern day lives, sometimes we need to take time out to rest our ever-cluttered, chattering minds and relax. Stitching with needlepoint is the perfect way to focus the mind, bringing with it a feeling of calm and satisfaction upon completion. Now renowned artist Cindy Lass brings her original, beautiful works of art to life with Cindy Lass Needlepoint.

Cindy Lass believes passionately that painting should come straight from the heart. A self-taught artist, she has been painting for more than 20 years and has acquired a huge fan base of admiring art lovers, including celebrities such as Sir Elton John, George Michael and Victoria and David Beckham. Her famous painting of The Queen’s Corgis now hangs in The Queen’s private quarters at Buckingham Palace and her tribute to Anne Frank, Everyone Has The Right To Blossom, hung at The Anne Frank House Amsterdam from 2010, and is now part of the immersive exhibit Anne at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.

Cindy’s Celebrity Pawtraits saw her painting the dogs and cats of international stars including Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Shirley MacLaine, Brad Pitt, Geri Halliwell, Bill and Hilary Clinton, Heidi Klum, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall. Her inspirational All Our Hearts Beat As One project brought together people from all walks of life, from fashion designers to sporting stars, via actors, TV personalities and musicians, including, Emma Thompson, Cate Blanchett, Bruno Tonioli, Simon Cowell, Iron Maiden’s Dave Murray, Meg Matthews, Mary McCartney, Sinitta and many more. Her projects have helped many charitable causes including Battersea Dogs Home, Elton John’s AIDS Foundation and The Heart Cell Foundation.


Cindy Lass Needlepoint kits make the perfect gift for a loved one or a gift to yourself. It gives us the chance to own a piece of Cindy Lass’s art from the heart, her world of colour that will soothe the soul and bring us joy. These beautiful artworks handpicked by Cindy Lass would make the ideal Mother’s Day or Easter gift, or are perfect for Spring or just to bring brightness and warm the soul. They are all available in charted or printed formats for beginners and experts alike.

Here's what Cindy said about the Needlepoint range : ‘My art is my passion, and now it’s time to share this with you. I want my art to be accessible, I want to take away the snobbery and bring back the fun of connecting with the energy of the painting. As such I have chosen a number of my favourite paintings for the launch of Cindy Lass Needlepoint. Each has its own story, each has its own energy... you really do not need any special skills to make my kits! Just the intent to take time out for yourself and connect to your heart for a moment in time. I hope you enjoy stitching and creating the designs as much as I enjoyed painting them.’
