Alex Beard is an artist, author, adventurer, conservationist, and avid needlepointer. He lives in New Orleans, and his gallery is currently uptown, on Magazine St. He is the president and founder of the Watering Hole Foundation.

The Quarter Stitch is pleased to carry a selection of Alex's work as hand-painted needlepoint. We have just added these pieces to our online shop, but as always feel free to email us to order if you prefer.

In general, the Quarter Stitch quotes prices that include the hand-painted canvas and specially chosen colors of wool for stitching each canvas. If you prefer the canvas by itself, just let us know!
