The needlepoint community learned tragic news last week that designer and friend Toni Randall had lost her home and painting studio in the Almeda fires in Oregon. Our stitchers responded immediately with overwhelming generosity!
Toni is the brilliance behind the “Whimsy and Grace” needlepoint line. Her timeless and elegant designs have been sold at Needlepoint.Com for over 15 years. You may be familiar with her stunning Christmas stars and her traditional needlepoint baubles.
We spoke to Toni today and she says she is already looking toward the future. "The grief and sense of loss is so very real right now, but I can feel the love pouring in over the top. I am so grateful for the overwhelming love and support of this incredible industry. You all bring so much beauty into the world."
This past weekend, Needlepoint.Com decided to donate 40% of all sales directly to Toni. The money raised this weekend will help Toni in so many ways. We offer you thanks from Toni and from all of us at Needlepoint.Com.
For anyone who would like to donate directly, please visit her GoFundMe Page here.
