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

Introduction to Needle ‘n Thread Site Sponsors


Amazon Books

This past August, there was a major change here on Needle ‘n Thread, and if you’re relatively new to the site, I’d like to take a little time to tell you about it. For those who have been following along for a while, you know that in August I introduced for the first time four commercial advertisements, to help cover the increasing costs of Needle ‘n Thread.

My plan was (and will continue to be) that the advertisers on Needle ‘n Thread are a good fit for the website and of particular interest to my readers. That is, they are directly related to the needlework industry, and are businesses I would recommend to anyone, because of their excellent quality and service.

I’d like to point out the specific sponsors and tell you a bit about them – and encourage you to patronize them if you are looking for something that they offer.

Update, 2016: The major advertisers here on Needle ‘n Thread have changed over the years. You’ll find their advertisements in the right column on Needle ‘n Thread, when you’re viewing the website on a desktop. When you’re viewing it on a mobile device (tablet or phone), my dedicated advertisers will show up between articles.

All of the advertisers on Needle ‘n Thread are “hand picked” for you. They all have something wonderful to offer to the needlework enthusiast. They’re all small businesses who offer a great service and great needlework products! By patronizing their businesses, you help keep the needlework industry going strong!

  2. hi mary!
    if you did not mention it, I would not know you have several sponsors on the website. I usually only see the space #4 in my newsletter, Maureen´s Vintage Acquisition.

    1. Hi, Vince – That’s right. There are four spaces – three are built into the website design template, and the fourth is built into the content area of the post, so only the fourth space shows up in the daily newsletter….

      Thanks for your comment!
