Who's behind the scenes at A to Z Needlepoint?
A to Z Needlepoint was riginally a retail store called The Regal Rabbit, which opened its doors on December 15, 1997. The owner, Diane McGregor, had been in the corporate world for 16 years, and unexpectedly became the casualty of "downsizing". Knowing that chances were slim that at the "advanced age" of 47 she could find another job in a similar position, Diane decided to follow her dream of opening a needlework shop, which has evolved into the current online store rather than a physical one.
Stitching, an important part of life.
Stitching has been an important part of Diane's life since 1973. After attending Chico State College in California, Diane decided to get a fun job for a while before embarking on a real career. She moved to Las Vegas, Nevada to pursue another of her passions, dancing. After traveling in a road show with Martha Raye and working with Jimmy Durante, Diane was fortunate to land a dancing job in the largest show in Las Vegas, Hallelujah Hollywood, at the MGM Grand Hotel.
The show opened in 1973 and it was here that Dianes' interest in needlework was born. About 75% of the girls in the show were from Europe and did some form of handwork between shows. Diane took an interest and began by purchasing her first embroidery kit. It wasn't long until she was hooked.
As time went on and life became more hectic, needlework was put on the back burner. But in 1992 Diane found a local needlepoint shop, began taking
classes, and the addiction took hold once more. Caught up in the corporate world and commuting 3 ½ hours a day to her job, needlepoint became her saving grace. Her love of needlework was so great it was inevitable that she would one day open a shop.
