Each Tuesday, Sharon B of Pin Tangle, will post a challenge / stitch for the week. Participants will learn the stitch, work up an example (or examples) and put a photo on flickr or blog. A comment is left on the Pin Tangle post with a link to your challenge picture (& info); what fun to share what you accomplished!

If you would like to participate, you don't have your own blog (yet), remember this blog space is open to NANI Members. You are welcome to put up your pictures, information, and copy the link for Pin Tangle's post.
Erica Wilson passed away on December 13.
Her embroidery designs were very popular--she seemed to be everywhere in the 1960s and 1970s. Her teaching, designs, kits, shops and books influenced generations of embroiderers.
I remember wanting to be Erica Wilson when I grew up.
This looks like a really fun way to boost your creativity and take a whole bunch of classes online.
Twenty videos featuring twenty different teachers demonstrating twenty different techniques and projects all at one site for one sign-up fee. Check out the projects and teachers here. The fun begins January 1st. The classes and videos will all be accessible for six months and you can view them in any order and any number of times so you can work at your own pace.
The exhibition features 45 bedcovers, coverlets, needlework, printed handkerchiefs, and other household textiles from the permanent collection of the Institute's Department of Textiles.
"The exhibition showcases over a dozen samplers and schoolgirl embroideries including a 1791 Mary Balch academy piece by Lucy Potter, a 1791 Marblehead, MA sampler by Polly Bedford, a 1795 Philadelphia whitework piece, and the 1822/1823 Clarissa Emerson sampler featured on the cover of "Samplings", Volume 40 (Fall, 2011).
