About NiftyNadineShop

Sales 696
On Etsy since 2017

I had never held a needle and thread until college. At least not that I remember. My roommate cross stitched and one day she taught me. I was instantly in love. It fed my need to obsessively count and put things in nice, neat rows, while creating something tangible and beautiful at the end. Yes, we were the old ladies at Auburn, stitching while we watched Friends and ER and Days of Our Lives. Thinking back on it, it’s pretty darn funny. Senior (in college) living at its finest.

A few years ago while cleaning out my storage, I found a cross stitch kit that had long been stored away. I picked it back up and it was like finding an old friend. Having also found a love for sketching and watercolor painting, I decided I wanted to learn embroidery. I picked it up easily – it’s really no different than drawing and writing, except it’s done with thread. And it is so. much. fun. to cuss in hand embroidered lettering!

One day, someone asked if they could buy something from me. I was shocked, but honored. I sold my first item and have been creating and selling ever since. In my store you will find digital patterns, kits, and finished pieces. I love doing custom orders, especially handwriting pieces. Each and every piece is made with love and care.

Ah yes, I’ve rebranded myself a million times over, but this time, THIS TIME, I’ve decided to remove myself from the branding and give my work a life of its own.

My mom’s middle name is Nadine. She hates it. I don’t know why, because it’s a lovely name. But like most people do about their names, she always wished it was something else.

I, however, loved it. And joked with her that I was going to have a baby girl and name her Nadine, just so she would have to say it all the time. I had two boys. And now the oven is closed. Whoops.

So as a tribute to my mom, who was super creative, but can barely sew a button on and who had absolutely zero impact on my life as a cross-stitcher or hand-embroiderer or textile artist, I named my business after her.

Nifty, right?

Thank you for visiting my shop. I'm always at the other end of messages for feedback, requests, and general chit chat!
