This is the last weekend for the Melissa Shirley trunk show which is scheduled to return March 16. Melissa Shirley has been designing fine hand-painted needlepoint canvases since 1981. She is a self-taught painter. She lives in California and works with her husband Tom. In addition to selling her own designs, she also sells designs from Linda Carter Holman, John Johannsen, and Mary Lake-Thompson.
Her canvases are artistic, fun, elegant and unusual. The show includes some of her newest designs. Also featured are Christmas stockings, stand-up figures, fruits, florals and gorgeous bird portraits. The show includes a generous smattering of designs by Mary Lake-Thompson (a personal favorite of mine).
