Rittenhouse Needlepoint is expanding. We've taken over additional space from our neighbors and moved our finisher and canvas painters into new quarters. The entrance to the new workrooms is through a newly installed door on the "wool wall". There is a small hallway and two modestly sized rooms with terrific light because of full-length windows that look out onto 18th Street. We expect that there will be a big increase in productivity now that Jim, Bianca and Alicia have there own space.
Bianca is also excited because Rittenhouse Needlepoint has purchased for her a heavy duty, commercial sewing machine (it's a "Juki" -- whatever that means!) Anyhow, we expect she is going to be putting out bags, belts and all manner of finished products in a jiffy. Seriously though, good equipment makes a big difference.
Stop by the shop and we would be happy to give you a tour of the new spaces!
