The Embroidery Blog

The Embroidery Blog is my project scrapbook for what I've been working on lately.

This RSS blog will...

  • let you know whenever any new web pages appear on the Embroidery Methods website, sharing new tips and project ideas
  • keep you up-to-date with other postings or news about embroidery, like the latest new materials available for stitching and stabilizing
  • point out some special past ideas and advice that you might have missed.

To subscribe to my blog (no e-mail necessary!), click on one of the buttons to the left in the box that says "Subscribe to This Site". Choose the orange RSS button to use the feed or click the button for your favorite service (Yahoo, Google, MSN, etc.)

Other options are Twitter (@EmbroiderySamp) and Facebook (Embroidery-Methods.com). The RSS feed below is published through both of those although the new items will appear here first!

Behind the Scenes

As loyal fans know, I'm now busy raising a family and this website has taken a backseat. I do what I can when I have time. I would just like to publicly express my displeasure with Pinterest. I'm having some real pain-in-the-neck issues with them! Such a waste of time. I'd rather be stitching!

If anyone wants to buy this website, I'm taking offers.
