Meet the Peacock-
We began in 1966 with five clever women who saw a need for a needlepoint shop in Michigan.
Starting out in East Grand Rapids, we moved to our present location in Ada Village in 2004.
Ebie, one of the original owners, designed and painted designs for the shop,
then added them to ourwholesale line not too long after. After a successful advertisement
in Town and Country magazine, we began our mail order business nation-wide,
which continues to be an exciting pat of our business today.
We now have a cadre of canvases from hundreds of designers, threads from every major line and adding more every year. We've recently added Planet Earth, which has quickly become one of our most popular thread lines in the silk category! in the fall of 2016, we've added Rainbow Gallery Persian wool, Capri, Entice and new colors of Silk Road Straw Fibers.
