Exciting new project from Dale Lenci
Palm Springs stitchers may know that Dale has recently retired from running needlepoint retail and design businesses in the SF Bay Area. He's going back to his roots as a stitcher -- this time as an artist at his peak. He will be creating unique works of needle art, each a single, one-of-a-kind creation. His innate sense of design, honed through his years of immersion in the needlepoint arts, will inform these special projects. Each piece will be auctioned with a percentage of the proceeds going to charity. The first item is expected in October 2022. Watch this space for news!
Introducing Desert Stitchers, a club for needlepoint enthusiasts in Palm Springs
Explore your creativity with the classic art of needlepoint! Needlepoint is an expressive and versatile art form with a long history and a vibrant current scene. Not only can you create wonderful pieces of art with needlepoint, but the act of stitching tames stress and nourishes the spirit.
Our first meeting was a success!
Thanks to all who attended our inaugural meeting on November 9th. There was a great turnout and fun was had by all. It was wonderful to see long-time stitchers meet for the first time, despite having lived near each other for years!
