Needlepoint is a beloved pastime that originated in Ancient Egypt. Throughout the ages it has inspired everyone from Marie Antoinette to Ali McGraw to thread a needle and create one of kind heirlooms. Today, due in part to social media, needlepoint is experiencing a revival. From the runways of Gucci to the cheeky pillows featured in the interior designs of Mario Buatta, it seems needlepoint is no longer your grandmother’s pastime. Our beloved craft was even touted as “It’s Back” on the last page of the hallowed “House Beautiful” in February 2018.
Lycette is hitting the road this summer with needlepoint kits in tow! Traveling up and down the Eastern seaboard, Lycette will be partnering with like-minded stores to bring the joy of needlepoint to the fabulous cities of NYC, Baltimore, Boston, Nantucket and Newport.
