New Here, But Not To Stitching ...
February 3, 2016 at 6:11:04 AM
 
Hi,

my name is Debbie.  I lost my job the first week of December due to health issues and have since been working on something I've been dreaming of doing for several years now - designing and selling my custom stitch designs.  I have started a blog and store for this purpose.  It's been slow going due to continued health issues, and I've hit quite a few bumps in the road along the way, but I'm not too unhappy with the progress made so far.  I'm currently re-working some stitch designs I made when I was a teenager [I'm almost 60 now!].

As to which crafts I enjoy ... I love them ALL ... I learned crochet early on; at the time knitting was too complicated for me, but have recently taught myself using youtube videos and online tutorials.  I have done needlepoint, crewel, plastic canvas, counted cross stitch, latch hook rugs, sewing and recently loom knitting due to hand and joint pain while knitting or crocheting.

I was so very happy to find a stitching community to share my love of all things stitching!  Thank you for providing this venue for stitchers everywhere to meet and interact with each other!

Debbie,

Welcome!  Smile

What a great name for your business...StitchMeKnot is so catchy!

I'm so sorry you lost your job and happy to hear you've found something you enjoy and where you can make some money, too.  Smile

Wow, reworking your own stitch designs from so long ago...how fascinating!  I hope the younger you didn't leave today's you too much work!  Wink

YouTube is really a great resource for craft tutorials.  When I don't understand something or want to find an alternative technique, YouTube is my go-to!  How cool you learned to knit that way.  Smile

We're happy you've found us!  Please share more about what you do...and we'd love to see pictures, as well!  Smile

Thanks for the welcome!  I have already started posting some of my patterns in albums - hope to get some more up soon.  I did fill out the profile pretty extensively which gives a lot more of my background.  I am looking forward to become a part of this community!  Thanks again.
