Customer Gallery 2011

Friday, July 15th, 2011

It’s that time of the year again. The Customer Gallery is on display through July 31st in the shop and here on the site. Be sure to vote for your favorite! You can vote as many times as you want so come back often.

The entries this year are really varied which I think makes it much more interesting! They are listed in the order they arrived in the shop so #1 was the first in. Click on “Comments” to vote for your choice.

Note: I have one more piece that I’m trying to finish now that should be added to this Customer Gallery. If I get it done by the first of the week I’ll put it up and send out a note that it’s here.

A special thanks to all the great stitchers who allow me to share these works with you. We have some of the most talented stitchers around and this is just a sampling of their work. The Customer Gallery is presented to you every July so plan to put one of your pieces in the 2012 Customer Gallery.

Don’t forget to come back and vote often!

What you can do with all these Threads!

Friday, June 24th, 2011

I wanted to share some pictures sent to me by a very creative customer. She stitches on cards and shares those cards with her friends and family, lucky them!

Card Embroidery 1

Each card is either her adaptation of an existing design or an original by her using all types of threads. They are lovely as they are, and would be great fun to stitch with threads like Rainbow Gallery, Caron Collection, ThreadworX or Kreinik to name a very few.

Don’t they just make your fingers itch for a needle?

This one is done with a lovely metallic. How elegant!

When a new use of the threads comes along I can hardly wait to give it a try.

This one is done with Stem Stitch.

Ok, one more!

Look at that sparkle!

Look at that sparkle!

As amazing as these are, what if she added buttons or beads? For some a Just Another Button Company button would be perfect, for others Mill Hill’s Treasures would add sparkle and of course either Delicas or Seed Beads would be exciting!

So what are you working on now? Please share with the group what’s fun and exciting in your stitching life!

Thanks,

Pat
