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

Embroidery Tour Announced!


Amazon Books

Marie Yolande has announced this year’s needlework tour, Needling Around in Paris! It looks like a winner – if you get a chance, check out the Marie Yolande website, where you can take a “virtual tour” of the tour. I posted some pictures from Marie Yolande’s Italian tour, which looked fantastic. I think the Paris one will be equally so! It looks like the “trip of a lifetime” to me!

The tour will take place October 24th – November 1st. I’m not in any way affiliated – I just like the whole idea of combining needlework and travel, and getting into “The” embroidery places around the world. What a treat that would be, eh?

  1. Mary, I just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful “stash” you sent. It really made my day. Ever since you first mentioned the beetle wings, I’ve been wanting to try them and I LOVE goldwork. You made my trip to the mail today very happy. Thank you again!

  2. Yippee! You got it! Sorry it was so messy – I was addressing it on my lap in the car, with an old ball point pen. Aargh.

  3. Oh would I love to go on this tour! Alas, I have a commitment that week…otherwise I would be sorely tempted….

  4. Mary,
    I hope you were able to find things of interest from the links I sent you. The web is just full of inspirations.

    I have been tagged to share 7 ramdom things about myself and then pass the tag on to 7 other people. If you will play I’m passing it on to you. Check my blog for the rules.

    God Bless,
