West End Needlepoint is a vision of Henrico County that aims to create a community in which self-expression can flourish through needlepoint.
West End Needlepoint, located at 10440 Ridgefield Parkway, opened on July 5. Sandra Sisisky said she wanted to turn the 4,000 square foot space into an inspiring, safe place for both thread enthusiasts and beginners to embark on their creative quests.
To bolster this endeavor, the company is launching a range of classes through its website to serve as portals to a realm of threads, techniques and artistic forms achievable through needlepoint.
The shop offers a variety of products, such as threading hand-painted canvas, intricate stitching, and basket-weaving in vibrant colors. The color palette is a tapestry of shades and textures.
Sisisky hopes to ignite this enthusiasm among the younger generation. The COVID-19 outbreak has sparked a renewed interest in needle art. She says that she wants to “shape West End Needlepoint into a sanctuary of relaxation and unbridled creativity.”
