At age 37 she retired from the corporate computer life and opened 2 the Point in 1998. Terry was educated in Fine Art and Art history with an emphasis on painting and sculpture. Her love of Art combined with Needlepoint gives her a unique perspective in the selection and use of color, as well as creating new stitches and techniques. Her customers quickly discovered her passion for designing and teaching. She now teaches regularly, everything from group to private and special project classes.
Terry has been hosting three soldout needlepoint retreats a year for the last four years and is currently selecting dates for 2010.
She has served as a Chairman for TNNA The National Needlearts Association needlepoint group and has taught nationally for them as well. Additionally, she has taught for various ANG American Needlepoint Guild and EGA Embroiderers Guild of America chapters.
Terry and friends did DIY Network program "Uncommon Threads". She along with Pat Conti, Charlotte Freeman and Jackie Motley travelled to Burbank and filmed three 1/2 hour segments featuring her Beginners Needlepoint, Beading and Pixel Shading Techniques.
The shows have also been shown on HGTV.
