I just received a letter in the mail from Amanda Lawford announcing her retirement. This makes me so sad.
Amanda has been one of my favorite designers since I started needlepointing. I have pieces from her in my stash and my WIP (who doesn’t? lol) I have stitched many of her pieces over the years and have gotten to know Amanda well over the last few years.
Her artwork has touched so many people and graced their homes. But after 42 years in the industry, I understand it is her time to say goodbye to this wonderful world. She will be sorely missed.
I guess this means I better stock up at the Dallas trade show. So if there’s something you’ve had your eye on, let me know and I’ll pick it up for you at the show or order it for you.
I wish you well Amanda in whatever you choose to do next. Can’t wait to see!
