Share Photos of Your Long & Short Stitch Project!


Amazon Books

Just a quick announcement! If you want to share photos of your long and short stitch project, get feedback from fellow embroiderers, or ask a specific question about a problem, I’ve set up a Flickr group for the Long and Short Stitch Shading lessons. You’re welcome to join up! I think it’ll be a good way to get feedback from others, display your work, and help others, too. Here’s the Flickr group address:

Flickr Group for Long & Short Stitch Lessons

In order to comment and post photos in the group, you need a Flickr account. They’re free and it’s relatively easy to sign up. Once you have an account, you add your photos to your photostream. Then, you can join the group and add your photos to the group photo pool. You can even put little notes on your photos, to highlight an area you might have a question about – which is a very hand feature, when learning a technique online.

So, if you’re interested, feel free to join the group on Flickr. I’ll be checking in at least once a day, too.
