OUR INSTRUCTORS
 
 
KATHY STOLPIN
Kathy Stolpin, The Needleworks master  instructor, was born in Flint, Michigan. She attended Mott Community College and the University of Michigan Flint. Kathy majored in Biology, Education and Drama which uniquely qualifies her to teach needlework (right!)

She’s been teaching creative needlepoint for 28 years and over 20 of those years have been at the Needleworks. Kathy has studied with Chottie Alderson, Jean Hilton, Joyce Lukomski, Jane Zimmerman as well as several other nationally recognized needle art instructors. She has won numerous awards in needlework shows including a blue ribbon awarded at an ANG national show.

Kahty’s husband, Bill, is a fine art printmaker. His 30 year association with DAS Print Co. has given Kathy a unique perspective in working with color and composition. This perspective, teamed with her natural sense for texture and technique, gives her students a rich teaching experience.

Students enjoy her relaxed classroom atmosphere and personable teaching style as evidenced by her large following of students.



 
CINDY MURPHY

Needlepoint has been a part of Cindy’s life for over 30 years through owning her own needlepoint store, to teaching others the craft, and even creating her own award winning works of art.

Her needlepoint achievements include teaching and showing pieces in both the ANG and EGA in Michigan, and a collection of her needle work Santas appeared in “The Stitchery” magazine.  She has received lessons from acclaimed teachers such as Amy Bunger, Jean Hilton, Tony Minieri, Shay Pendray, and Suzy Murphy.  One of her most popular classes in the past was her once-a-month ornament class.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her two very cute West Highland Terriers, traveling with her husband in their motor home, and loving her two beautiful grown children.  She recently took a five year break from needlepoint to pursue a couple new hobbies such as quilting and knitting.

Cindy is back into her first love of needlepoint by teaching her weekly Open Stitch sessions. Contact The Needleworks for more information.
