I just want to clarify that the shop that I was talking about in the Rumor Has It blog was NOT another needlepoint shop. A few customers have asked me if it was a certain shop that was spreading the rumor. So, I just wanted to clarify. This was a shop of another industry in a neighboring town. How they got this information is beyond me.
In my experience, needlepointers are really nice group of people who just want to share their love and obsession with the art form. The last thing I would want to happen is bad blood between shops in our small industry.
