Knots can be beautiful too

February 22, 2017 Megan Eckman

Growing up, my grandmother tried to teach me that the back side of my embroidery should be as pretty as the front. I never got that good and seemed to have quite the penchant for knots. In case you have that same penchant, I wanted to show that you it's okay. Knots can be beautiful too.

Sneak peek at March's club patter

February 19, 2017 Megan Eckman

This month's Super Stitchers' Club design will be a bit different because I'm allowing you to customize it if you wish. I'm not one to assume what you adore so you'll get this pretty botanical plus two optional quotes to iron on.

Here's a peek at one of the quotes.

How-To: Painted Hoop

February 15, 2017 Megan Eckman

Welcome to another episode of Crafting of Megan!

As usual, this is where you get to see me at my less than crafty self. There's no sugar-coating here. You get to watch me make a big fool of myself over something I'm sure you can do with your eyes closed.

This month I wanted to show you an easy way to jazz up your embroidery for your wall. All it takes is a little bit of paint.

Floral Profusion embroidery kit

February 10, 2017 Megan Eckman

You might remember this pattern from last September. It was the first design I made for the Super Stitchers' Club and also my first ever floral design. Some of you who weren't in the club tried to get your hands on this pattern by offering money, embroidery lessons so I can learn the French knot, and donuts. I stood firm to make sure club members got exclusivity for this pattern for 6 months. (That was REALLY hard when the donut offer came up.)

But now you can finally get your hands on my Floral Profusion kit!

Valentine Freebie

February 01, 2017 Megan Eckman

Valentine's Day is coming up and that means we have to be prepared to eat half our weight in chocolates and give out lots of cards. I've been training for the chocolate consumption since Christmas so I'm good to go there but I wanted to help you with your cards by making one you can print. Maybe you'll give it to your spouse, or your cat, or even the mailman. No matter who you give it to though, know that you're making the world a better place by spreading love. Goodness knows we need that right now. You can download the card here.
