Support our Needlepoint Shops

Support our needlepoint shops!

So, how’s it going with you today? Every day, life continues to be full of twists and turns. And, well – I just want you to know that you’re on my mind and in my heart. We’re soooo lucky to have our needlepoint hobby as a respite from the crazy! Last week, I shared a list of needlepoint shops (on the Serendipity Needleworks Facebook page) that are still operating, albeit in a different kind of way. And earlier this week, I had a new idea. I think you’re gonna L-O-V-E it! Wanna hear what it is?

Okey dokey – here goes… it’s Needlepoint S.O.S – Support our Shops, Part 2. (You’ll have to keep reading to find out more.)

S. O. S. - support our shops... so they'll still be there after the pandemic passes.


Independent retailers – including our beloved needlepoint shops…

are being hit hard with this COVID-19 pandemic.

Heck – I know how challenging it is to operate a retail business during even the best of times, first-hand. (Remember, I had a brick and mortar needlepoint and yarn shop for 15 years.) And I can only imagine what our local needlepoint store owners are going through right now. Yikes!

So, starting tomorrow (April 3), I’m adding Needlepoint S.O.S. to our weekly Stitching with Ellen sessions.

That means you’ll get to meet a shop owner and take a first-hand tour around inside her/his needlepoint store. Pretty cool, huh?!

If you haven’t signed up to be part of our virtual stitching circle, be sure and read all the way to the end of this post where you’ll find info on how to join us. 😉

Here’s the list of needlepoint shops that are currently still filling orders and shipping…

The information below is the most current that I have.

(If you own a shop and would like to add it to my list, please send me an email at [email protected]. I’ll be glad to include your shop, too.)
