So pleased with this kit! Just started it and found I love embroidery! I am making this hoop for my daughter for her first birthday, even though she can't understand this gift yet I know it will be something cherished for a lifetime! Thank you so much!

This is by no means my first Miniature Rhino kit; rather, it is only one in what will continue to be a long line. The shipping was lightning-fast, and the patterns are SO wonderful—everything is very clearly laid out/labeled, so there is no confusion at all when working on the project. (Plus, everything is freaking adorable.) Thank you so, so much!

Prompt shipping. Easy to follow directions. I have NO experience in embroidery or even sewing, and was able to complete this kit. It inspired me to get embroidery supplies to start making my own hoops.

About

Stitch by stitch...

***So very excited to announce my new book, Stitched Gifts, an embroidery craft book published by Chronicle. Please read all about it here: http://bit.ly/NdQIs6 ***

It all started with a little stitched heart made on an airplane trip from New York to California. I had no gift for my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary, so during that five hour flight I embroidered their names, Helen and Lito, into an arrow pierced heart. My grandmother always preferred a handmade gift and treasured them; cards were all kept in boxes, notes on the fridge, my lopsided birdhouses hung in the backyard, and my heart nestled among her saint figurines and reliquaries.

On a whim, I shared this piece in my shop and received a great response. Since then I've been stitching up custom pieces for weddings, anniversaries, new babies, birthdays, and just because. Everyday, just about, you can find me stitching in my Brooklyn studio (aka the spare bedroom). Now, I teach embroidery classes and share fun, easy kits in my shop too.

If I'm not stitching, I'm up to some creative endeavor or another. I also make stationery, books, and dabble in all sorts of media. Making excites me, and being able to share the things I make with you is a great gift.
