Amy and Sarah Blessing have been passionate about all things craft related for as long as they have been sisters. For many years they owned their own clothing stores in Los Angeles and Chicago called apartment number 9 . They eventually transitioned into retail consulting for fantastic brands including Goop, Doen, Roman Williams Guild, Claire V, and Jenni Kayne. Never leaving home without a needlepoint, knitting, or other creative project in hand has led to a lot of conversations with curious people on airplanes, waiting rooms, beaches, meeting rooms, and anywhere else they might find time to work on a project. For a long time they have been dreaming of sharing their love for needlepoint with others, and they hope to do just that with Loop.
