(CBS) — What started as a hobby has turned into a 45-year-old business for a Gold Coast woman, reports WBBM’s Regine Schlesinger.
83-year-old Betty Goldstein says as her children began growing older, she wanted something to do with her time.
“I talked to my sister and sister-in-law. I said, ‘Do you want to go into business?’ We started to needlepoint. And I didn’t know the first thing about neelepoint.”
But, she learned and for decades now, she’s been teaching others about the fine art of needlepointing and knitting at her shop, We’ll Keep You in Stitches, at 67 East Oak Street on the Gold Coast. She offers the lessons for free but sells supplies and finished needlepoints and knit items.
