About Us

Thank you for visiting us!

We are Amy and Memory Baker and we love Cross stitch! With a combined total of over 25 years of stitching experience for fun, in 2018 we decided to give it a go at designing. We are excited to increase are online presence by offering our charts and accessories via our website and now in our brick and mortar shop in Myrtle Beach, SC. 

We met in 2016 when Amy moved to the Charlotte area for work. We quickly realized we just HAD to be together forever and were married later that following year; on Folly Beach in South Carolina. Cross stitch was a part of daily life and a hobby we enjoyed doing together.

Barefoot Needleart was born in 2018 when we were searching for a pattern to fit inside a frame. Amy has a background in graphic design so she went right to work designing a cute little owl for our kitchen. From there, the ideas just started to flow. We incorporated our love of travel and the beach into many of our designs.

Barefoot Needleart has continued to grow in the past three years and recently we decided to follow a dream and open our own store. Barefoot Needleart is now open in Surfside Beach, SC and offers our designs and as well as all your other favorite cross stitch designers and accessories.  While Amy will continue to design periodically, we have shifted our focus to creating a stitching nook in our little corner of paradise!

In our spare time, we visit the beach (we call it yard work) and get bossed around by our fur/feather babies.  We boast one beautiful daughter currently studying marine biology.  We also host our you tube channel The Current Stitchuation from our studio; where we showcase all things cross stitch (and an occasional corny joke). By day, Amy works in the shipping industry and Memory works with children with autism. When we are not designing and stitching, we enjoy the beach, hiking to waterfalls, thrifting, travel and coffee.

Please stop by and say hi!  We love to meet others passionate about stitching..and the beach!
