Upcoming Trunk Shows


I’ve just finalized my upcoming trunk show schedule through January 2015. Here’s the outstanding lineup that I’ve booked for the first half of the 2014/2015 season:

NPL’s 2014-15 Trunk Show Schedule
# Date Vendor/Designer
1 Oct 2014 Purple Palm Designs
2 Nov 2014 Barbara Bergsten
3 Dec 2014 Fleur de Paris
4 Jan 2015 Birds of a Feather

A word about trunk shows.

Trunk shows are really great idea because they provide an overview of a designer’s work.   They often feature classics and new work together. Customers love trunk shows because they get to see the depth of an needlepoint artist’s portfolio, not to mention enjoy the attractive discount that many shop owners usually offer.

Purple Palm Designs is a new needlepoint design shop.  This will be their inaugural trunk show.  Susan and I are two rookies together, since of course this will also be Needlepoint Land’s first ever trunk show!

Barbara Bergsten needs no introduction to the needlepoint world. Her canvases have a tropical flair, and are extremely popular.

Fleur de Paris will feature Joy Juarez and Janet Watson, as well as a sampling of other artists, including Sandra Gilmore and  dede.

Birds of a Feather is a well-known needlepoint vendor that offers canvases designed in a variety of styles, from sophisticated and elegant to simple and fun.
