Workshop with Maureen Guiffre

We’re so excited to announce that we will be hosting a one day workshop with the talented and creative Maureen Guiffre on January 25th! Maureen who is the author of the recently published, True Confessions of a Stocking Stitcher, specializes in bringing texture and depth to hair, fur, trim, foliage, etc on a canvas. Workshop participants are invited to bring a canvas (or two) to the workshop and Maureen will share techniques, thread suggestions to bring the design to life! Here are the particulars:
Date: Wednesday, January 25
Time: 10:00 – 3:00 (30 lunch break)
Structure: Maureen will begin the workshop by teaching one of the techniques from her book and then will move on to working on the designs brought in by particpants.
Cost: $300. A non-refundable deposit of $150 will be due on or before December 30. We are limiting the number of workshop participants so that everyone gets ample time and feedback from Maureen. With that in mind, call (781-235-2477) or email (info@wellesleyneedlepoint.com) us early to reserve a space!

Passing The Torch…

From Cindy Mathews:

It is with mixed emotions that I tell you that I’ve made the decision to start a new chapter of my life and have sold the business to Kim Walton. Kim owns two very successful Stitch Boutiques in the Boston area and I know that I leave this business in good hands. You should know that Kim wants to continue the business much as it was and reinstate many services that were disbanded in the age of Covid. So, stay tuned for further developments and exciting changes from her.

Kim has offered to let me stay on for some months and I look forward to being a part of the transition team here.

I want you to know that this business has been one of the most rewarding periods of my life and I want to thank each and every one of you for your support, kindness and friendship over the past 25 years. My email address has changed and I can now be reached at: cindymathews1950@gmail.com. I would love to hear from you.
