Antique Needlework

This is an interesting article on antique needlework, including cross stitch samplers. Neat little history lesson, as well as a bit of info on how to preserve old pieces!

Random notes of interest...

-- I thought this was neat, being both a wine and stitching enthusiast. A winery hosting a stitching event - what a great idea! I think it would be neat if more wineries did this!

-- A lovely example of what the experience of cross stitch is all about.

-- Check out this online cross stitch festival Feb. 1-5.

The Emma Project

So this is super cool -- not only do I love Jane Austen, not only do I love Emma, not only is Masterpiece doing an adaptation of Emma that starts Jan. 24 on PBS, but The Sampler Girl is going to have a special Emma Project available to stitch while we watch! Stay tuned to her web site for updates.

How awsome is that! I can't wait... Jane... Emma... stitching... what more does one need?! :)
