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 submitted one of her stockings to the 2021 State Fair and received a third place ribbon as well.
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 several non-profit Dallas institutions, the two sisters launched Wipstitch to share their whimsical canvas designs and unique style with you.
