Grant Point Designs began after 10 years of love for needlepoint, an on again, off again hobby for Samantha. During the COVID-19 outbreak, with much of the world on hold and a newborn son, she started painting canvases that she wanted to stitch. Her "stash" was back in NYC and having relocated to Cape Cod where she grew up, she needed a little "me time" at the end of the day. Thus, Grant Point was started. 

The designer, Samantha, learned to needlepoint from her mom. After growing up having needlepoint belts made for her and her brother during their equestrian days, she finally asked her mom to teach her. Samantha has still yet to finish the first ever needlepoint belt she began, and to this day, wonders how her mother ever did so many!

The name, Grant Point, is a nod to Samantha's son.
