What’s New

Keep Calm and Stitch On!

We hope this finds you all safe and following the recommended guidelines during this unprecedented time. We know that stitching can be a great source of comfort and calming during challenging times and so we plan to make the store available to you as best we can.

At-A-Distance In-Person Support – Tuesday March 24 ONLY

On Tuesday, March 24, Cindy will be at the store from 9:30AM-12:00PM. But don’t just show up!  If you need to be in the store to pick threads or a project, contact Cindy to schedule a time. Cindy will schedule appointments such that there will be no more than two customers in the store at a time. Hand sanitizer must be applied upon entering and the safe, 6’ safe distancing rule will be strictly enforced. Cindy can also place orders outside the door during the hours the store is open.

Remote Support for the Foreseeable Future

We still very much want to maintain a “Keep Calm and Stitch On” practice for our customers. At the same time, we will respect Govenor Baker’s advisory for non-essential businesses. Rather than arguing how essential needlepoint is (!!!), we will be operating as follows for the foreseeable future:

Cindy and the team will receive all telephone and online inquiries and requests and make every effort to answer and fill them as best we can. Cindy can and will go into the store to send stitching supplies to those in need.

Pictures of our canvas inventory are posted on our special Keep Calm and Stitch On web page. Anything you see, as well as threads, can be shipped to you.

Please call (781-235-2477) or email ( to communicate your requests. We will respond to your phone calls and emails as promptly as possible.

This is not an ideal situation but we are hopeful that it will provide you with a creative and welcome outlet when it is needed most. Please work with us so we can make this happen!

Burnett & Bradley Mini

New from Alice: Red Sox Red Socks!

TWNC Exclusive Motif #1 in Rockport

We are excited to present another new exclusive design! This canvas of Motif #1 in Rockport, Massachusetts was designed by our own Julie Paukert. It is not available yet, but details are coming soon!

TWNC Exclusive Boston Stocking

There is a lot of interest in our upcoming exclusive Boston Stocking design by Dale Lenci of DJ Designs!  The Boston Stocking is reminiscent of his other stockings for Chicago, New York, and Philadelphia.

The first shipment of the Boston Stocking will be in April 2020 and the price will be $425. (This is a discounted price!)  
Visit the TWNC Web Shop to pre-order with a ~50% deposit. This will guarantee you a spot in the first shipment.
Once the stocking arrives we will be pulling together an optional thread kit to offer at a 15% discount if purchased with the canvas.

Welcome Kerrie Raeke to the TWNC Team!

We are thrilled to welcome Kerrie as the newest member of our team.  Kerrie learned to stitch at The Wellesley Needlepoint Collection!  Fifteen years later, she is a magnificent stitcher and has crafted some of our stitch guide models.  This, plus her law degree and her crazy good organizational skills, are a boon for the shop.  Kerrie’s initial focus will be on clubs and trunk shows.
