  • There is nothing more enjoyable than stitching on the porch in the springtime, with the fresh air and birds visiting you. Unless, it is stitching in the winter when the wind is howling and the snow is blowing and you are under your favorite quilt, in front of the fireplace stitching! I have been blessed to be a stitcher for 50+ years (thanks mom!) and there is nothing more mind soothing and peaceful than being wrapped up in your stitching! Learning new techniques is part of the enjoyment and fulfillment of stitching!

  • I have been an embroidery enthusiast from the time I was 7 years old when my Grandmother began to teach me how to stitch. I was hooked the minute I opened the little package with a silver hoop and a rainbow of colored threads. She was a good teacher and I still have the now well-worn silver metal hoop. I am now 61 and have never stopped stitching. What a legacy that she passed on to me. I would love to receive a copy of this book as a gift.
