But, before I give you the details, you’ll have to read on and the story behind it.

We all know the health benefits of needlepoint. But here is living proof.

A year ago I was fortunate enough to meet a new customer, Bill. After visiting his doctor, he was informed that there was no stronger dose of medication to control his blood pressure and was advised to find other ways to curb his medical condition.

Bill attended a yoga class and was quickly asked to leave.  Meditation made him angry.  Nothing was working.  His neighbor suggested he try needlepoint.  And voila!  A new stitcher was born.

A month later, Bill returned with a completed canvas, a smile on his face and beaming with pride over his work.  And what do you know?  Needlepoint worked for him as a way to relax. AND . . . His blood pressure dropped 10 points in one month!   Not due to an increase in medication, but simply because of needlepoint.

 Now it’s time to spread the word! I have asked stores throughout the country to participate in this wonderful event throughout the month of February.  We have collaborated with The Meredith Collection to create a magnet for this event.

Any store can participate and the event details will be listed on a page on The Enriched Stitch website.   If your local store is not participating, please ask them to do so and contact The Enriched Stitch for more information.  This is an important cause that we all should be supporting.

Registration is $50/day.  Come one or both days.  Lunch is included. A portion of your registration fee includes a donation to the American Heart Association. Registration is required.  Registration is non-transferable.
