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

Dear Friends,

I wish you and yours a peaceful Christmas, full of joy and many blessings!

Merry Christmas!

Although I’m sneaking away from the computer for a couple days, I’ll be thinking of you! May you manage to hide away for a quiet hour or so and get in some stitching!

Merry Christmas!

  1. Bless You and Thank You Mary.

    It’s 11pm Christmas Eve here and a pleastantly warm night although do have a fan on.
    I’m off to bed as don’t have any desire to disturb Santa. He’s got to get to your side of the world yet, and change from his t-shirt, shorts and kangaroos to his woollen suit, furs and reindeers on the way. May he heap tons of love and special moments on you.

    Cheers, Kath.

  2. Hi Mary
    Thanks for your wishes and for all the joy you bring to us all year round. Hope you have a wonderful Xmas and all the best for 2011.

  3. Dear Mary,

    And a very Merry Christmas to you and yours as well. Thanks for a wonderful year of Needle ‘n Thread. Looking forward to 2011 and lots of stitching. All the best!


  4. Merry Christmas Mary! Have a wonderful Christmas season and many thanks for all the tips you’ve put on your website. Have a wonderful new year!


  5. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Mary. I’m looking forward to a new year of your wonderful postings. Thank you!


  6. Merry Christmas Mary – I am not sure if you realize what you do for people with your newsletter, lessons, give aways, and knowledge – but I would like to tell you how much it means to me. You are my daily Christmas present – you have inspired a life long stitcher to explore more and try more things. I am not afraid to try things but you are such a source of inspiration that I just NEED and WANT to explore everything you talk about. It wouldn’t be right for me not to say thank you to someone I love to visit with every day, yet, have never met or talked to. You are a very kind, giving, generous, and beautiful soul. May all the blessings of Christmas be yours and your family also. Thank you!

  7. A very glad yule to you. Enjoy your days off. You deserve a break today (oh, wait, that’s not the Christmas song). 🙂

  8. Thanks, Mary, for the lovely Christmas message. I want to thank you for your selfless devotion to your readers and wish you happiness, love and fulfillment in the New Year! For today, Merry Christmas and Love from,
    Denise in Palm Desert, CA

  9. Mary, I forgot to mention that you have given me a present this year! You have inspired me to finally go for Master Craftsman in Crewel through the EGA; without your beautiful projects and instruction, I don’t think I would have. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    Merry Christmas!
