Isn’t Miss Betsy adorable in pink leopard (of course!) needlepoint booties?! Laurie Bloch, stitcher extraordinaire and one of Betsy’s POIA Aunties, stitched these little shoes as a baby present. Laurie has been teaching needlepoint lessons and working at the shop for more than 25 years. She enjoys stitching lots and lots of canvases for her darling grandchildren, Leo and Sadie. If you need a needlepoint lesson or even a little refresher, we will put you in touch with Laurie! Private lessons are $40 and can be scheduled at a mutually-convenient time at the shop. She will also be running a week-long needlepoint camp for kids this summer; email me for details.

If you are in the market for custom booties, or custom anything really, we’re your shop! We work with a marvelous custom artist who can translate your idea into a spectacular canvas. Email me!

Happy stitching,
Susan

Fab Finishing: Provencal Satchel

I covet needlepoint purses…it’s an addiction really. Point of It All employee Laurie Bloch stitched this marvelous satchel. In full disclosure mode, I have to confess that I did not call her when it arrived from the finisher…I held onto it and just admired it for a few days. But I did NOT actually wear it out of the shop, so that’s a positive!

The canvas is from L’Esprit de France. They have such unusual canvases….pieces that are unlike any other artist’s. Take a minute to explore the website! They have pillows, shoes (drool, drool, I love shoes), luggage straps, desk sets, and so much  more!

Considering how much I love purses, no one will be surprised that I have stitched the leopard print, the tartan, and part of the zebra striped purses. I also made Chris a watch from L’Esprit.

Happy stitching,
Susan
