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

Road Trip – Back Soon!


Amazon Books

Good morning, my friends!

Today, this is me:

Road Trip!

It’s time for a road trip! I’m off on a short adventure with three of my nieces. I’ve packed my summer project tote with some stitching and a book or two, and I’m looking forward to a fabulous little break, visiting one of my sisters beyond the Plains.

Next week, I’ll be sharing a series of Stitch Fun tutorials with you here on Needle ‘n Thread, so keep an eye out for those!

I’ve suspended sales for any of the tangible goods in my shop while I’m gone. You can still purchase e-books, but since I won’t be here to ship, all ready-to-stitch kits and other tangible goods are in a state of suspension until I return.

Finally, I won’t be able to check email regularly, so if you have an embroidery-related question, please feel free to use the search feature in the main menu on the website to see if I’ve written about it before.

I will be back soon, batteries recharged, and ready to tackle the next phase of summer on Needle ‘n Thread! In the meantime, though, I hope you enjoy the tutorials that I’ve prepared for you for next week.

See you soon!
