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

Nordic Needle!


Amazon Books

I haven’t been to Nordic Needle yet, but will be going soon! Just a quick note to say “hi” to all and let you know that I plan to hit as many major needlework shops along the journey as possible! So far, I’m certain of only three, but I’m contemplating two more.

After spending last Thursday evening, Friday, Saturday, and this morning in Winona, MN, I’ve headed northwest to North Dakota, where I plan to stop in at Nordic Needle in the next day or so. Then, I’m heading due west, and will keep you posted on anything interesting along the way, when I have the ability. Hotel internet connections are not always so certain!

So far, the trip has been a lot of fun! I’m afraid that this morning, I missed the exit to see the World’s Largest Turkey. I’m trying to live with the disappointment!

I’ll be in touch! I hope you’re enjoying the daily posts! (OH NO – I just noticed they haven’t posted. I fixed the problem, and now there should be a couple new posts on the website! Sorry about that!)
