writer and founder


I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Running out of Time for Gifts for Embroiderers?


Amazon Books

My Mom is funny. I have heard through the grapevine that she’s asking my brother what to get me for Christmas. I left little hints here and there – and some big hints – but … you see how it is!

I’m going to make it really easy for her, and for me, and for others out there suffering the same dilemma. It’s an awful “plug,” but here it is:

You’ve probably noticed that I do the Amazon affiliate thing – it helps support this website and the stuff I do to keep the website going, as well as helping with the children’s embroidery classes I teach during the summer.

If you buy Amazon gift certificates though Needle ‘N Thread, I do get a small percentage.

Now, who doesn’t like Amazon for books? And you can find GREAT needlework books on there! I have a list of four or five on my wishlist right now, but they’re not in the budget!

So, for my Mom, and for all you out there who are looking for a last minute gift – whether for a needleworker or not (think books, music, and everything else you can get at Amazon) – maybe you could try a gift certificate!

Here’s a link, if you’re interested! And thanks for your support!
