Nantucket Needleworks® Catalog
Thanks to so many of you who have encouraged me to bring back Nantucket Needleworks. I am pleased to say “I did it!” - and this catalog is a testament to the relaunch of this company. We have dozens of new designs in needlepoint, cross stitch and hooked rug kits.
It was over twenty years ago, when the elderly couple who owned Nantucket Needleworks were retiring, and I decided the best way to save these precious yarns was to buy the company. At that time I was totally unaware that my entrepreneurial spirit would emerge, and I would create the Claire Murray® Company, opening stores and selling my products worldwide.
The needle arts are experiencing a major revival. Maybe it is the frenetic pace at which many of us live our lives, or perhaps it is the economic downturn that is forcing us to rethink our priorities, slow down a little, and enjoy life’s simpler pleasures.
Whatever the reason, I am excited to once again make these exquisite products available to all of you.
Over the intervening years, my love for Nantucket, where I got my start, has remained steadfast. There is something about the island’s deep respect for its past that invites it to be seen anew time and again.
