Needlepoint Events UPDATED

There's a new website in town--Needlepoint Events!  Vicky DeAngelis mentioned it on her blog tonight.
http://mostlyneedlepoint.com/so-whats-new-2/

The website is going to be a database of upcoming events and classes and will be searchable by location, shop, or teacher.  There is even a place for class reviews, trunk shows, and monthly clubs!
http://needlepoint.events

I don't know anything about the site except that it is based in Atlanta and is probably paid for via advertising. The site has been created by Mark Young of Labors of Love.  Thank you, Mark!

Hopefully Needlepoint Events will take off.  Let me tell you, I cannot wait to be able to stop updating the Classes and Events tab or the Monthly Clubs tab!  All this is a lot of work and blogs are not a suitable format for databases of classes and events.  The limitations of listing them on Blog is painfully obvious to me and probably obvious to you, too.  And then there's the issue of listing trunk shows, which I am opposed to as I believe that it simply trains stitchers to ship for the lowest price instead of supporting shops that are too small to afford deep discounts and frequent sales but which give stitchers endless help when they need it.

Stay tuned....

  2. Thanks! The next time I need the rundown on a site I'll head straight to your door, Anon! Yes, this is Mark Young's baby, the designer behind Labors of Love. He's noticed all the begging for information about what class is where and has set this up. I think I might **love** Mark!

  3. Jane, all you had to do was ask me who is the mastermind behind this and I would have told you! Since Mark showed it to me in person while I was at Destination Dallas and gave me the magnet!

    1. I know, Vicky, but time is at a premium here right now as I get ready for cataract surgery. I barely have time to comb my hair in the morning. Besides, a little mystery is fun, isn't it? LOL Thanks for cluing us in.
