Family Arts Needlework Shop was founded in 1967 as a non-profit organization with the mission to support the art of Needlework and at the same time give back to our local community. We are a full-service needlepoint shop, offering a wonderful selection of canvases, threads, books, accessories and classes. We are staffed by a passionate group of volunteers, supported by expert in-house staff.
Our In-House Staff
Julie is the engine that keeps our shop going. She is a gifted teacher that will encourage and guide you to enrich your stitching skills. Join Julie for one of her classes soon!
Needlework has been a part of my life since I was a very young child, taught by my mother. When I was soon to retire, I was quoted as saying that when I left teaching I would stitch until I dropped! Please join me for one of my classes, or if you prefer we can arrange a private lesson as well!
I have been stitching for 30 years, starting with cross stitch but quickly switched to needlepoint and was hooked! I have worked at several needlepoint shops but have happily ended up at Family Arts. For the last 10 years I have been teaching canvas embellishment. Once a year I teach a joint class with Linda Corirossi - I hope to see you there! I am also available to write stitch guides for those that can not join my classes - contact the shop for more information.
We also have in-house painters that can bring your ideas to your canvas. Please call the shop to discuss with Julie. (602) 277-0694
