Introducing The Oxford Company Crew! 

Christy Lombardo has been with The Oxford Company since 2017, where she first started as a dye assistant to Heidi and now does all of the dying for our Violet Jane yarn line. Christy has a Master’s degree in historic preservation and spent 10 years working as an architectural conservator in NYC before making her escape to the beautiful Vermont countryside. She loves color and all things fiber and in her spare time can be found knitting, quilting, and undertaking house renovation projects which drives her husband (who also does QC for OxCo) “freakin’ bonkers”.




Dave Stankoski has been with Oxco since the end of 2017. His first gig here was helping Amy put together a series of tutorial videos for her youtube channel.  With punch needle sales on the rise, he also pitched in and helped with punch needle assembly. His obsessive attention to detail in punch needle assembly led him to his current job of performing quality control of every punch needle made. In a previous life, he worked in broadcast operations and engineering for an American broadcasting company. When not threading punch needles, he can usually be found playing guitar, mowing the lawn, shoveling snow or trying to perfect his nap skills.


Heidi Whipple started at The Oxford Company by answering an ad in the local paper to assemble Punch Needles in 2009. Over her years with The Oxford Company she has done everything from assembling the punch needles, dying Violet Jane Yarn, customer service, filling orders and teaching classes. She even fixed the stone path the first year the school opened! In 2013 she became an Oxford Certified Instructor, and in 2019 an Advanced Oxford Certified Instructor. Heidi is the senior manager and oversees most of the daily activity at The Oxford Company. When Heidi is not at work she enjoys spending time with family and her two cats.


Lily and Toby are our security, greeters, and emotional support dachshunds. They take their jobs extremely seriously providing laughs with their comedic antics, laps around the light table at optimal zoom speed, tug of war matches, and naps at feet.  Toby can oftentimes be found waiting for a belly rub and Lily can be spotted napping in the sun.
