Hi There!

A Note from Melissa

Welcome to The Wool and the Floss! I am so glad you have found us. I am Melissa MacLeod, a lifelong stitcher…. I learned how to stitch at the age of seven, in the back room of this exact store front, under the tutelage of Marnie Fessendon Ritter…. Many years later, I went to work for our prior owner, Jean Candler, as an instructor.

In 2017, I was fortunate enough to purchase the business from Jean. Since then our business has grown exponentially…. Through our Unboxing Parties (yes a pandemic can have a few silver linings), Tuesday WIPs, Tips and Tricks, and the Pointing It Out Podcast, many stitchers have found us and we have become a Creative Escape for what we hope is All Stitchers!

If you are looking for inspiration and stitching fun, look no further…. Please feel free to shop our curated collection of needlepoint canvases and supplies and watch for sign ups for our quarterly stitching retreats. We can’t wait to meet you!
