Would you like to be featured on Needle ‘n Thread this summer? If you stitch, if you write about needlework or textiles on a blog, if you have a hand-made enterprise for needlework-related goods (like an Etsy or Artfire shop), if you own a needlework shop, if you are a needlework book author or publisher, if you dye your own threads or fabrics, if you’re a designer or a manufacturer – if you’re involved in the needlework industry in any way at all and would like to contribute content to Needle ‘n Thread, I’m ready and waiting!
Last summer, we enjoyed a series of interesting guest contributions on Needle ‘n Thread, thanks to stitchers from all over the world! For example, we saw a fantastic aquatic sampler in two parts: part 1 and part 2. We heard how Jo stitched her way into a successful Etsy venture, Jayashree introduced us to Kasuthi, a traditional Indian embroidery technique, and we saw some gorgeous ribbon embroidery on linen from a reader, among other things.
Maybe you’re a blogger who writes about your needlework adventures and would like to share a tip with Needle ‘n Thread readers? Maybe you just finished your needlework masterpiece that needs some showing off and you’d like us to enjoy seeing it, too? Maybe you’ve discovered a shortcut to transferring embroidery designs and you’d like to tell us about it? Do you dye your own threads – and can you tell us a little bit about it? Do you offer online needlework classes that you’d like to let readers of Needle ‘n Thread know about? Any proposals for needlework-related content are welcome and most appreciated! Just send me an e-mail with your proposal, and I’ll reply.
In case there’s an influx of content proposals and volunteers, I’ll have to do some picking and choosing. I may not be able to use all contribution right away, but I will let you know either way. Contributions will be posted between mid-June and mid-July.
If you have any suggestions for content or would like to see something in particular that’s needlework-related, maybe you could leave a comment below and it might spark someone’s interest to write for Needle ‘n Thread!
