It is always good news to hear about a resurgence of interest in the needlework arena. Here is a good article in the Daily Herald describing how needlepoint is making a comeback:
It wasn’t long ago that the word “needlepoint” conjured up thoughts of dusty cushions with fusty florals. But in recent years, thanks to a handful of retailers, designers and enthusiasts, the craft has become cool again.
What is responsible for pumping up the cool factor?
The resurgence of needlepoint is due in part to big names in the design world embracing it. Designer and potter Jonathan Adler and clothing and textile designer Trina Turk both sell pre-made needlepoint items in their shops, helping to introduce the craft to new demographics.
And also because of classy new designs by Pepita Needlepoint. Naturally.
