About

Blue Ribbon Designs

Needlework/Quilting is my passion, obsession, and career.

My Full-time Job:
Blue Ribbon Designs was established in 2004; I specialize in original counted thread cross stitch patterns and quilting designs along with specialty hand finishing of needlework smalls, custom quilting projects, and teaching needlework/sewing/quilting techniques.

My Etsy Shop:
Several years into my cross stitch design career, I found I needed another creative outlet that wasn't part of my needlework business; with my love for fabric and threads, sewing and quilting was the logical leap. I love to spend hours sewing and crafting....and I tend to make multiples of every item I create. In 2012, I decided it was time to put my creative energy to work and open an Etsy shop - here you will find all sorts of my personal sewing, quilting, and crafting items - many derived from my own original patterns/designs. Most of my pieces are one of a kind - each one is special and unique! You will also find the complete Blue Ribbon Designs chart/pattern/design catalog...crafting/creating supplies...and vintage needlework books...

Personal Notes:
I currently reside in central Iowa with my husband, an adorable Shih Tzu named Simba, and an all-black German Shepherd named Schatzi. I am a private person....a self-proclaimed control freak...most times a perfectionist....beyond organized....super analytical....and a little bit obsessive compulsive. I have a deep passion for all things done with a needle and thread - a lover of fabrics, fibers, trims, embellishments, and textiles. I am an admirer of the creative, unique, and artistic. I enjoy reading about and studying antiques, textiles, and historic needlework...along with quilting, sewing, machine embroidery, papercrafts, and crafting (in general).
