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

I’m ordering several pairs of Evertite Frames. I love those things, and I can’t wait to have a few in the larger sizes!

  1. Mary, I read your comments on the Evertite frames and am going to try them! Your description is wonderful! I also saw that you gave Homestead Needlearts as a shop where they may be purchased, but that you had no experience with them. I’ll put in a plug for them here, if I may. Theresa is a lovely person with a great sense of humor. Anytime I’ve ever ordered anything it has come very quickly. If there is a problem, she will call you directly. Great shop to to business with! Thanks so much for your discussion here.
