Shop Reopened!

Thank you for your patience as the shop was closed for the month of January.
The shop has reopened! 

As some of you may know, if you follow Needlings on any social media especially, my dear father passed away on New Year's Eve after dealing with years of extended illnesses. My dad was one of Needlings' biggest supporters and I know he would want me to keep going, so keep going I shall! He was one of my main cheerleaders for the first 10 years of Needlings but I'm sure I'll continue to feel his cheering me on for the rest of it. 

Happy New Year to you all and thank you for your continued support and love.
Stay tuned for more Needlings soon.

Needlings is Ten! Enter the Giveaway!

Ten years ago I made a simple little felt toy for a little girl with special needs. I liked doing it so much that I made a few more. With the encouragement of my friends and family, I reluctantly put those on a little website called Etsy for 20 cents each and I watched them all sell - much to my surprise. A year later, I did my first craft show (which was terrifying to me at the time) and just kept going from there. I could never have imagined it would be as important to me as it has become. Needlings has taken up much of my life (and in some ways, my friends' and families' lives – sorry guys) for 10 whole years. It's been my constant through many happy times, struggles, and heart breaks and has been my best friend in a lot of ways. It hasn't always been easy to keep going and there are even moments I wonder why I do but I've been lucky to have met so many friends and wonderful people and I never forget how truly lucky I am to receive the support and love I have had for these silly little things all these years. I really want to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for buying, encouraging, liking, and sticking with Needlings this long with me. I really truly couldn't do it without you.
