Hello Needlepointing artists, stitchers, vendors and dear friends. After a very long run in this astounding industry, forty-one years, Bill and I are reinventing NeedlePOINT of La Jolla. We will no longer have a brick and mortar façade, but a virtual canvas store. As of Saturday, September 30, our doors will close at 5685 La Jolla Blvd. With one door closing, one has opened for us. We will continue to bring our faithful customers his or her favorite artists’ designs. Bill will resume painting special orders for you, now with speedier delivery. Michelle will continue to design pillows, and other needlepoint faire for finishing.
It became clear to both of us to develop our skills in the areas we shine in, and we will be happy to do so in our new home state New Mexico. We are looking near Rio Rancho, between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, and contemplate moving as early as November.
Thank you all for being so wonderful to us, and allowing us to be part of your “Needlepoint Journey”, as mom would say. I’m quite sure you will have many questions for us, and Bill and I will convey what we know assuredly; the rest is still unwritten.
Michelle and Bill and Joey too
