About the StitchingJoy website

I dedicated the StitchingJoy site to all kinds of hand embroidery that I have stitched and that I like. It contains articles on cross-stitch, crewel, hardanger, and silk embroidery. The site contains pictures of my finished projects and the works that are still in progress. I also create quality patterns for cross-stitch and needlepoint which sold in my store. Several times a year a Stitch Along project will be conducted.

The site also contains information on other crafts and hobbies, such as basketry, handmade jewelry and dolls. I make and sell baskets for home decor, they are one of the kind. I also might consider fulfilling a special request for a basket. Sometimes I write articles on subjects that are not related to crafts but might interest my readers. They are can be found in “Articles” category. Recently I got affiliated with Dick Blick Art Material company and Amazon. Those are two places where I buy art and craft supplies for my hobbies. I am providing links to those products if I mention them in my articles. I have also created a StitchingJoy Forum to discuss articles, share stitching experience, brag about finished projects, and chat about everything in the world.
