We are so excited to announce our first collaboration with you all and boy is it a big one…MJD x Packed Party!!
We are so excited to be launch a needlepoint kit with the legendary brand Packed Party on Monday, February 7th, at 8am EST! Read on to hear more about learn more about Packed Party, how this collaboration came to light, and everything there is to know about the kit!
About the Collaboration
This collaboration means a lot to me because for those of you might know, my very first job out of college was as an in-store merchandiser for Hallmark. I spent my days stocking shelves and working on creating more visually appealing displays (specifically window and front-of-store displays). It wasn’t a very thrilling job by any means, and most of the hours passed by very slowly, but one of my favorite parts of my job was when we received new Packed Party merchandise because I was always assigned to set it up. It was so colorful and fun and I was immediately drawn to the brand - it made those dreary days a little brighter for me.
You can imagine how surprised I was late last year when I received a message from Packed Party asking if we would be open to collaborating to create a Packed Party x MJD Needlepoint Kit and my answer was YES!!!
About Packed Party
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Packed Party, they are a lifestyle and gifting brand that was founded in 2013 by Jordan Jones in San Francisco. Jordan had a dream about throwing herself a "pity party" and thus, Packed Party was born! Jordan started by selling themed party packages, and now -- based on customer demand and the goal of making every bit of life a PARTY -- the company offers everything from confetti totes & accessories to drinkware, apparel and so much more! Packed Party is now based out of Austin, Texas and focuses on celebrating all life's little milestone - from half birthdays to random Tuesdays...we love it!
Jordan had taken up needlepointing (she loves our Chill Pill Kit) and wanted to create a kit that we could launch in time for Valentines Day for Party girls. We hopped on a phone call with the Packed Party team and quickly got the ball rolling with designs. Several months later, we’re launching!

You also could get it professionally framed by Framebridge.
I LOVE Framebridge and work with them often. I am part of their referral program so you can get 15% off if you frame through this link. I do get a small kickback that I can use towards my next framing.
Here is what you need to do before you send your frame to them:
- Select “Textile” in the art selection section
- Under “Dimensions” – put only the dimensions of the area you want framed. If your canvas is 8.5”x8.5” but your stitched area is only 6”x6”, put 4.5”x4.5” in the dimensions.
- Ask them to cover up the canvas area that you don’t want shown with a mat.
If you're looking to try to finish your canvas by yourself, here is a great tutorial on how to finish your canvas as an ornament!
We Hope You're Excited!
