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

Advertising on Needle ‘n Thread


Amazon Books

Needle ‘n Thread will be featuring ads for needlework-related businesses, beginning the middle of August.

Before moans and groans go forth from well-intentioned readers who are legitimately tired of being accosted by advertising at every turn, please hear me out! I am offering only four advertising spaces on Needle ‘n Thread, for needlework-related businesses that I know are a “good fit” for my website, and that I believe will be helpful resources for my readers. They will not be irrelevant, blinking and flashing ads in garish colors. I promise!

To all retailers, designers, and manufacturers who read Needle ‘n Thread and who would like to advertise on my website, if you are interested and would like more information, please drop me a line and I’ll be happy to send you some information!

  1. Hi Mary, I am sure that if the advertisers who wish to utlise this feature were not ‘up to scratch’ you would not allow them to advertise here. Personally, I think it’s a great idea and a win/win situation all around.

    Take care.

  2. I value your opinion on prodcuts and always take into consideration your reviews. I see no problem with advertising on your site. Actually, your site is such a ‘go to site’ for all things, this will be another plus making it easy for us to find a site you value. Thanks!

  3. Mary mucha publicidad .no es grata ,,pero es importante encontrar en tu espacio ,que se lleva
    ya sea en literatura o materiales

  4. Adbvertising would be good for us as we need to find out all the sources and information we can in Cape Town. We are so far from these exciting finds and want to learn all we can.

    Delighted that you will be teaching needle arts in schools.

  5. I entirely support the idea of advertising. You are offering us a wonderful service by sharing your knowledge and your work – I’m happy to look at (and click on) a few ads here and there to make it happen!

  6. Good morning Mary,
    I think advertising is good. I am a novice and finding the right accessories for embroidery is difficult without help and I must say you are there for us. Keep the good thing going, we need it, specially people who live outside USA.
    Thank you.
