Love this!!! The designs are so pretty and the instructions make it easy to do, coming from someone who has never done any sort of needle work before. Hoping for more letters to come soon!

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.
