How We Operate


So, Knitwear super designer, embroidery queen and generally amazing woman Kristin Nicholas was at the local Mega Bookstore tonight. She is fantastic! You can see here just a smattering of all the wonderful embroidered projects that she brought with her – and its all SO simple. How many of us take the time to add such rich texture and embellishment to our homes? DO IT PEOPLE its a cinch!! Kristin walked everyone through the simple steps to make embroiderd bookmarks, backstitch, daisy and french knot. Check out her blog, her paintings, her book. You can’t not love her sense of color and design


Here is a small group of us stitching away on our fun bookmarks. That’s Kristin, bottom center, she’s not fond of being photographed – Who is!


These are the two bookmarks I got done.

  1. So fun! I have her book and just adore it. I really hope to find some time to experiment with some stitching like this :) Thanks for sharing your experiences!

  2. OK, now I am REALLY homesick. After all those months of Mum being the only one in the group doing needlework, everyone else starts doing needlework AFTER we’ve left town! But it does look like fun. Mum is still working on her chess board, and given how complicated it is, I expect that she’ll be working on it for at least a year. Mum just doesn’t seem to do “quick and easy”!

    Please say “hi” to the group from Melissa and Lucinda.

  3. Fantastic site you have here but I was wondering if you knew
    of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed here?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get advice from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot!
