Safe Store Practices and Appointments – Update 12/30/2020

The recently revised COVID guidelines regarding social distancing and safe practices are in place and are being strictly followed in our store. We need to be vigilant about how many people are in the store at the same time. To that end, here are some reminders and updates to our operating protocol:

We ask that all customers make an appointment prior to coming to the store. Email requests to TWNCappointments@gmail.com or call the shop at 781-235-2477. Note that leaving a phone message is not a confirmation that you have an appointment.

  • Please be as prompt as possible and keep your visits to the store no longer than 30 minutes to allow us to keep to the appointment schedule and stay within our capacity limits.
  • Please do not bring anyone with you to your appointment unless they have an appointment as well.
  • If you arrive at the shop without an appointment, you will be asked to wait outside if shop capacity is at our maximum.

All staff and customers must wear a mask that fully covers both mouth and nose at all times. No exceptions!

Remember, you can send inquiries and orders to us at info@wellesleyneedlepoint.com. We are also happy to fill small orders and finishing pick-up via our “hang it on the door“ method!

Holiday Finishing Delays

We want to update you on the status of finishing. Our finishers have done an incredible and magnificent job of tackling the astronomical volume of pieces they received. Despite their monumental efforts however, not all pieces will be back before Christmas. This is a result of the shut down, the staffing restrictions imposed upon reopening, and the volume multiplied many times over what was anticipated. If you have not received a call from us telling you that your piece arrived, it likely will not arrive before December 25. We know you are as frustrated and disappointed as we are. We ask for your understanding as we near the end of this challenging COVID year.  We wish you health and every happiness now and in the New Year.

Store Re-Opening June 8!

We’re delighted to announce that we will be reopening on Monday, June 8.  Our reopening will be on a limited, restricted basis in observance of the current state and federal guidelines.   Please review our Complete Re-Opening Guidelines and Policies before heading to the shop.

Whenever possible, online and email orders are the preferred and safest way to “shop” with us.  Contact us at info@wellesleyneedlepoint.com with your orders and inquiries.

If you need to visit the store, please contact us for an appointment.  To secure an appointment, please email us at TWNCappointments@gmail.com.  Please let us know what days and times work for you, as well as what you hope to accomplish (very briefly, for example “thread selection for stocking canvas”, “trunk show viewing”, “choose variegated green thread” etc) so we can prepare if necessary.  We will schedule your appointment and email you a confirmation.  Visits will be limited to 30 minutes.

Drop-ins will be allowed in as space permits.

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 now available!  Our very own Page also created a stitch guide and thread kit for this canvas. 

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.

After several delays due to the shutdown at the paint service, shipments of the Boston Stocking are starting to arrive.  For those that pre-ordered, we will let you know as soon as yours arrives. 
 
If you would like to order a Boston Stocking, visit the TWNC Web Shop to pre-order with a ~50% deposit. The price is $450. 
 
Also available is a thread kit for the stocking that includes silks, metallics, overdyes, and a few beads.  The cost of the thread pack is $240.  The piece isn’t conducive to lots of different stitches as it has a lot of “activity” in it, but the thread pack also includes some stitch suggestions.
