Canvas Conversations: Tarra Ferrone


Tarra Ferrone has been an avid, one might say serial, stitcher for years. She grew up just outside New York City in Purchase, New York, moving up to the countryside of Southern Vermont in 1992. She lives with her husband Willie. Her needlepoint company is named after their two daughters, Piper and Ryder ... "Pip and Roo." Tarra's designs come from her love of all animals, and iconic fashion brands. 

Be sure to peruse Tarra's designs in my shop here, and you can follow her on Instagram here.
