Meet Rhonda Pellegrini
STORE MANAGER & NEEDLEPOINT ENTHUSIAST
Rhonda has been interested in needlepoint for as long as she can remember. As a child she watched her mother doing needlepoint, and soon Rhonda was doing projects herself, using needlepoint kits from the local craft store.
But the time when needlepoint really became a big part of Rhonda’s life was as an adult, when she had a job as a receptionist. The office would have slow times during various parts of the day, and her boss suggested that to alleviate the boredom, she could bring in a television. Instead of a television, Rhonda turned to the much more rewarding option of needlepoint, and she soon was stitching up a storm.
She joined the needlepoint industry soon thereafter, when the owner of her local needlepoint store noticed that Rhonda was a frequent visitor and offered her a job. She’s never looked back — “It was the best thing I ever did!” In 2005 Rhonda joined DJ Designs, and soon thereafter began working at Luv2Stitch as well.
Rhonda’s favorite needlepoint projects are holiday items. She even has multiple holiday trees at her house — not just for Christmas but also for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween, and more — all bedecked with her needlepoint projects.
She loves the needlepoint art form because there is so much room for individual creativity. Two people can work the same canvas, yet the results can be very different depending on the artistic touches each stitcher brings. She also loves that every level of stitcher can create beautiful works of art.
