Off To See the Wizard

Vicky has been dog sitting for the editor of Needlepoint Now, so she was able to make a few side trips while she was visiting the poodles who "own" the magazine. Naturally, she went straight to Mindy's Needlepoint Factory. Yes, that Mindy! She owns a shop as well as being a painted canvas designer. I have no idea how she does it.

If you'd like to visit Mindy Patterson's shop but can't make the trip, here's the link to a video.

You can no longer see a small selection of the trims Mindy sells online, but a call to the shop should help you find a wonderful button or ribbon or lace to finish one of your canvases.  Here are some photos of the interior, just to whet your appetite.  Click on various categories on the left side of the page to see Mindy's hand painted canvases.

  1. Oh. My. What a place.

    1. Yes, I want to live there in the winters. In the summer I want to live at Designers Desk. Sigh.
