The Needlepoint Rescue Society

C'est Chouette is a vintage needlepoint recycling business.  They take yard sale and thrift shop  canvases and remake them into amazing pillows.  You can read a bit about Sharon Wollman, the owner, here.

There are two websites selling these vintage pieces.  Have fun finding the pillow that tugs your heartstrings.  Many thanks to the Needlework Retailer for posting about this on Facebook.
