What I Did on My Summer Vacation...

By June 20, 2011

This past week I had a chance to visit Gussie Shubert and her shop, Needlepoint Etc., during my annual work/play trip to Hawaii.

Seeing what's new in Gussie's shop is one of the highlights of my trip, and I can hardly wait until next year's visit.

Those of you who subscribe to Needlepoint Now magazine have probably seen Gussie's ads featuring tropical canvases. These gorgeous designs are all designed and hand-painted in the islands.

I couldn't help but oooh-and-ahhhh over the fabulous canvases designed and painted by Hawaiian artists Georg James and John Dinsmore (who also created many of the beautiful murals on the islands), as well as canvases designed and painted by Peter Ashe.

Sadly, I was not able to fill my suitcase with goodies - hubby insisted that we share a suitcase this trip, and there was no room for purchases.

Next year, I'm bringing a separate suitcase!

That’s what the postal service is for. The canvasses don’t weigh very much and they could easily be packed and mailed home. Now that’s the kind of mail we all look for.

She does a lot of mail order – I’ve seen the parcels stacked on the counter!
