NEEDLE NOOK recently launched a new user-friendly website including a full online store. The initial focus is to offer a wide selection of needlepoint products, artwork, and accessories to a larger audience on the Internet.

Featuring dozens of product categories, the NEEDLE NOOK website brings together threads, canvases, ornaments, stitch guides, books, needlepoint accessories, seasonal products, and more. Gift certificates are also available online as a gift idea for anyone who loves needlepoint.

Mrs. Fay Bullitt, owner of NEEDLE NOOK, bought the successful La Jolla-based needlepoint business in 2008 and she has been the driving force behind its rapid expansion to become one of the most prominent names in needlepointing. Since 2008, the physical store has grown to include two locations: the Thread Gallery and the Canvas Studio; and national business has greatly increased. Mrs. Bullitt is also responsible for bringing together NEEDLE NOOK’s staff, which has been praised as talented, clever, creative, and caring.

NEEDLE NOOK’s general manager, 30+ year veteran needlepoint teacher David McCaskill, said, “We have one of the largest thread selections in the United States and our Canvas Studio contains a dedicated 3,000 square feet of wall space for hanging canvases. We don’t carry everything; we just carry the best of everything. Now we’re making this available to you wherever you are through our online store.”

Mr. McCaskill is known nationwide in needlepointing circles simply as David, and is widely recognized for his unique blend of technical knowledge and creative ability with needlepoint. Together with Mrs. Bullitt, they make a formidable team.

“The customer benefits from this by having access to full service start to finish, including framing and finishing,” Mr. McCaskill commented. “Everyone here has been trained artistically to look at a canvas the way I look at it. This has kept our local customers coming back and allowed us to build a large mail order business shipping all across the country. You’ll now be able to take advantage of this online, too.”

When asked about NEEDLE NOOK’s creative process, Mr. McCaskill discussed how visualization and a clever use of the basics allow his needlepointers to create works of art with texture and depth. “Some people just do needlepointing. We pride ourselves in creating artwork,” he continued. Many beautiful canvases are available on the NEEDLE NOOK website for customers to browse and buy. These can also be used for inspiration for future needlepointing projects.

Whether you are looking for a finished canvas or the tools to get started on your own work of art, NEEDLE NOOK contains a comprehensive selection of needlepoint products and accessories on their new website.

NEEDLE NOOK also invites needlepoint enthusiasts to take part in its third annual teaching retreat, known as Getaway La Jolla, which features seminars moderated by national teachers in a beautiful and relaxing environment designed to stimulate creativity.
