is a way for Rittenhouse Needlepoint customers, designers and wholesalers to gift tired canvases, half stitch canvases, old canvases or the like to people of very low income, mental deficiencies and prisoners entering halfway programs. We believe that needlepoint is a meditative relaxing hobby that can help all people who suffer from too much thinking. We have created the program to inspire all needle pointers to contact non-profit groups in their area and become stitch buddies for persons who would like to have a meditative hobby. This program has been in the minds of the owners Russell Palmer and Stephen Janick for many years and with the help of many kind customers and designers it is now live. Please read more about two such customers Marilyn Brown and Mindy Bogue.
