We are back from market!

Quick post to let you know that we are back from market with a lot (make that a LOT!) of lovely new canvases. The store is opening today and we will be having a Grand Opening this Saturday April 6th. We will be here 10:00 to 5:30 Saturday but if you would like to come early or stay later for our grand opening, that would be great? We will have some snacks as well as some "Egg-citing" discounts at the cash register. We have new classes to announce and a couple of new trunk shows starting this weekend. Studio times will be added soon!! We can not wait to get started. Stay tuned and we hope you will join us on this exciting new adventure!

New Beginnings All Around

Colleen here! We’re at Market in Orlando where the energy is high, the excitement is electric and the new canvases are awesome!

Who could have predicted that when I bought a little needlepoint store in 1997 that my life would have been so enriched by all the wonderful people and experiences I’ve had? The Needle Works in Austin is not just a store made of bricks and mortar. It’s a community gathering place where people want to linger, with a professional staff who love and care for all who visit. I am proud that I’ve had a hand in building such a warm and welcoming place.

So allow me to introduce you to the new owners of The Needle Works – Annette Paape and Allison Farrimond. We’re all at Market in Orlando!

Colleen, Allyson and Annette

I am the luckiest woman alive and am so excited for Annette and Allyson as they begin their journey and continue the long tradition of this wonderful store. My new chapter will include photography, travel and (of course) needlepoint! And who knows what else, as I transition to shop customer.

From Annette and Allyson:

We are so excited to continue the legacy of The Needle Works in Austin Texas. In Orlando at our first Needlepoint Market, WOW!

The vendors and other shop owners we have met have been so welcoming. We are planning for several trunk shows and teachers in the upcoming months. Our soft opening will be April 3rd and the Grand Opening will be Saturday April 6th. Details to follow.

In the meantime, watch for posts on Instagram and Facebook and the blog for posts on updates and stuff from the show floor. If you see something you like, please send us a message on Facebook or email the shop and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
