New Email Address - Important

I will be switching Internet providers soon, and am not sure what my new email addresses will be at that time. This will be an email address to use if you need to contact me in the mean time and also after the change:

(I finally took my husband's advice and am sticking with an email that will stay the same no matter what Internet provider I have.)


New Shining Needle Class - My Favorite Scottish Sampler

If you can't make an in person class, I will be teaching another class for Shining Needle Society. My Favorite Scottish Sampler will be offered in a 7-week class starting Oct. 1 through November 12. Registration begins today and ends on September 15. This is a beautiful Scottish Sampler that is part of my collection. Many specialty stitches will be part of the class (Algerian Eyelet, satin, straight, cross stitch over 1). I will also discuss the history of Scottish Samplers and include an article I authored for Gift of Stitching Magazine. I hope you will join us.
Please contact Kate at if you would like to join in the fun!

Don't forget Shining Needle Society has no membership fees.
I hope you will join me in adding this beautiful sampler to your collection.
