A little crafty bio:
I learned to cross-stitch in the 5th grade when our class made cross-stitched Christmas ornaments. I did a few pieces on my own after that. Then, when I was 16, my very first job was at a cross-stitch store (back when such a thing existed). I worked there through high school and over college breaks. I also worked a little as a graphic artist’s assistant for a cross-stitch designer. I have been an EGA member off and on since the mid-90s. But since kids arrived on the scene, I have done less and less needlework. Since moving to Florida in 2017 (and with both kids now being teenagers), I am hoping to pick back up on my favorite hobby! I like most forms of embroidery, including cross-stitch, needlepoint, hardanger, pulled thread, surface embroidery, and more.
