I wanted a place to sell my patterns and this is it.
Embroidery is a love of mine that goes back to childhood.
My grandmother Lily taught me how to embroider and my mother
taught me how to sew. I can't imagine what my life would be
like without either. The reason I started the redwork line of
patterns is that I noticed that there was nothing new out
there, and I wanted to do something besides the old penny
squares. I was inspired by a children's book from 1923, so I
drew some bodies and some clothing ideas, and the result is
this line of 20's kids.
Quality is also important, and that's why I use only
Kauffman's Kona for my designs. It's heavy enough for
quilting, and you can't see the embroidery through it. I have
ordered printed washout patterns in the past and been sorely
disappointed when the fabric shrunk and my stitches were large
loops instead of smooth lines in the fabric. This is why I
always preshrink in hot water before the fabric goes to the
screen-printer. It isn't very cost effective for me, but for
the embroider, I think it will be a blessing.
I have in work right now, a set of embroidery quilt blocks in
the Art Deco style. They should be finished within the next
My Webmaster and myself sponsor through the sale of these
patterns, a website called Embroidery.nu
The purpose of the website is to have a place for thread
workers of any sort to gather, chat, learn new things and swap
information and tips and generally keep the thread arts alive.
We encourage you all to teach someone (especially a child) to
sew or embroider or learn to quilt or make lace, so that the
arts aren't lost forever.
Both websites are a labor of
love. The Webmaster loves the technical end of it and I love
the making things end of it!
WHAT YOU LOVE AND LOVE WHAT YOU DO.
