About Us

Liz has been doing needlework all her life.  She got the passion for it from watching her grandmothers and great grandmothers knit, crochet, cross stitch and do canvas work. She says she came to petit point by accident.  She had been doing needle lace for some time but missed working with color.  She walked into The Sampler Needlework shop and saw a snowman stitched in silk threads on 40 count silk gauze and was hooked.  But as she followed this passion, she found it difficult to find supplies and spent countless hours searching for charts, silk floss in a variety of sizes and gauze. Petitpointers is the result of that search.

Our goal in opening this shop is to create one place (our website) where my fellow stichers can find everything they would need for stitching.  We also want our site to be a resource where they can find reviews and recommendations about products they are interested in.  Before offering a product on the site, we use it.  We offer silk gauze in a variety of counts as well as a variety of silk floss, which can be purchased by the yard, enabling my fellow stichers to try it and see if they like it.  An additional benefit of floss by the yard is that it is no longer necessary to by a full skein of a color when a fraction of that is required.  We also carry scissors, needles, magnifiers, lights and storage options.

We are also pleased to be able to offer our customers handmade miniatures and doll house accessories for every room (1/12 scale) and silk gauze kits and charts.  We also offer custom design services which can take a treasured picture and create a chart for you to stitch.  Or if you would prefer, we would be happy to stitch it for you.
