Hi! We're Nicole and Amber, and we're passionate about needlepoint! One of us is a veteran stitcher, and the other is still a beginner. We each bring different skill sets to Needlepoint Destashing to create the best possible experience for you!
Nicole.DeLaurentis has been stitching since she was a teenager. She started in cross stitch and evolved into needlepoint (and still enjoys both). You might just spot Nicole at a class or retreat, as she loves to expand her needlepoint knowledge any chance she gets! Nicole believes that there is always something to learn and is constantly inspired by all of the talented stitchers out there. She has been married to her husband for over 30 years, and their son is starting law school in Fall 2023. Nicole has worked in local needlepoint shops for 7+ years, and believes needlepoint is good for the soul.
Amber Manfredi is a beginning stitcher, but found the joy in needlepoint quickly. She organized the local chapter of Stitch Club, and loves the opportunity to learn from more experienced stitchers. Amber is a web developer, so this site became the natural evolution of the Needlepoint Destashing listings on Instagram growing quickly. She has been married to her husband for 14 years, and enjoys the ability to work from home and be with her children. Weekday afternoons, she can be found sneaking in some stitching in the carpool pickup lane at her daughter's school.
