Londa's Profile

About

Creating has been a lifelong passion for me; be it with a needle, pencil, paint brush, etc. My Dad said he knew I was going to be an artist at the age of three. Many decades have passed since then, but my love for creating beautiful things lives within me forever; that's just how God made it.

I've been a commercial sign artist for over 35 years, starting well before the computer took over the industry. I still paint some signs, all by hand and probably more artsy than computers generally do.

I began my crewel embroidery work at age ten when my Grandma showed me the stitches. It started with a dresser scarf, then quilt patches, a crazy quilt, hippy jeans and shirts, etc. While in art school, I embroidered clothes and sold them to…

I began my crewel embroidery work at age ten when my Grandma showed me the stitches. It started with a dresser scarf, then quilt patches, a crazy quilt, hippy jeans and shirts, etc. While in art school, I embroidered clothes and sold them to help support myself.

In 2001 my first published embroidery work appeared in the "Amercian Small Farm" magazine starting with farm related quilt patches and was an instant success! I've published with them every month since then until their closure at the end of 2010.

Later in 2001, McCalls Pattern Company published a couple of patriotic American themed crewel embroidery patterns of mine. It was a great honor being a part of rebuilding unity with my stitches after the horrors of 911.

My OTHER Esty shop focuses on the Jacob Sheep, their products and other aspects relating to the animal. Please visit it at www.4hornsheep.etsy.com and my daughter's at www.2wetherornot.etsy.com
