About Wipstitch

Sisters Rebecca Fletcher and Elizabeth Malakoff have been needlepointing since they were young girls growing up in Dallas, Texas. Together they share a deep love and appreciation for the craft of needlepoint. Collectively, the sisters have stitched sixteen Christmas stockings, countless stand ups and ornaments, and dozens of belts. In 2014, Elizabeth was awarded a third-place ribbon for one of her Christmas stockings at the State Fair of Texas. Not to be left behind, Rebecca is currently stitching a stocking she intends to enter in the next fair competition!

Married in a Texas-sized double wedding in their early twenties, the sisters settled on separate coasts. Rebecca and her husband Barron lived in New York for seven years where she practiced law and eventually discovered her passion for fund-raising and development working for NYU Law School. And on the West Coast, Elizabeth and her husband Michael set up home in Los Angeles while she attended ArtCenter College of Design earning a degree in graphic and packaging design. Elizabeth was the first to settle back in Texas beginning her design and marketing career and raising three daughters. Rebecca soon followed suit with a daughter and son in tow.

Today the sisters live in Dallas on adjoining streets where the back gates of their homes align. Super convenient when going into business together or simply trading threads! Besides stitching, this sister duo loves to travel and explore. They enjoy planning "Sister Trips" with friends to new and favorite cities where inevitably they wind up in a shoe department with a glass of champagne.

Combining Elizabeth's expertise and talent as a creative director, designer, and marketing professional along with Rebecca's experience in fundraising and development for many non-profit institutions, the two sisters have launched Wipstitch to share their whimsical canvas designs and unique style with you.
