Hi everyone! Welcome to Stitch Style- a blog about all things needlepoint! My name is Jinny Barney McAuliffe.
Jinny was born in New York City, and moved to London, England at the age of eight, where she was fortunate enough to spend the next seven years of her life. This is where her love and passion for music and the arts was fostered. Upon moving back to the US, she attended the Interlochen Arts Academy for her final two years of high school. Jinny holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Opera Performance from the Boston University College of Fine Arts.
After graduating from Boston University, Jinny started Stitch Style as a creative outlet to share her passion for needlepoint with others. Five years later, the blog is still going strong! She loves that it has become a place to connect with new friends who share the same passion as her. She also works full time as the Director of Education for Needlepoint.com.
She currently lives in Colorado Springs with her husband James, an Engineer Captain in the Army and their black lab mix, Charlie. They were married on April 14, 2018 in the same church as her parents. This is the third state they have called home since then!
When not stitching, Jinny enjoys traveling, playing the piano, singing and hiking.
Stitch Style is Jinny’s happy place – she hopes it will bring you inspiration and joy, too!
