Jenny Henry Designs started in 2002. The main goal was always to bring aesthetic, timeless, accessible needle work designs to a broader market. For the beginning years I handpainted custom needlepoint canvases and my own line of handpainted needlepoint designs that I sold exclusively to the trade. In 2007 motivated by the desire to reach beyond the trade shows, my first retail kit was born. The Red Cassette is my first and favorite kit because it taught me to be true to my style. Five years ago the needlepoint coaster kits using plastic canvas hit my Etsy shop and were widely received for beginners, teens and gifts. Today I am getting ready to offer kits for the tweens and teens as well as kitting up some more traditional pillow kits.
