I nearly fell over backwards. I snapped a quick cell phone photo of the magazine, open to that particular article on my lap and wrote back within seconds, "Yes! and Yes!" Is that crazy serendipity or what!? What are the odds?
That was a year ago. I was knee deep in the earliest stages of our home studio renovations and had to politely request a later date. How embarrassing, but she was so very kind and agreed. In September I finally wrote my article for, 'From Sketch to Stitch' and sent it in. Last week the published issue arrived in my mailbox! I am over-joyed.

I had a couple emails prior to seeing it from people in other countries. They all said, 'what a great looking article.' That made the wait even more exciting. I have to say, I think they are right. I opened my copy and gasped. It looks REALLY good. The printed colours are perfect, the photos are large and clear. WOW
I just don't even know what to say. This is a pretty big deal for me personally. It's beautiful. It's a magazine I highly admire. Stitch has published so many well respected embroidery artists. It's an absolute honour to be in these pages.
Thank you Stitch! : )
Usually I purchase this magazine in Saskatoon at McNally Robinson Booksellers. It's also at Indigo across Canada. Unfortunately, this particular issue has not made it to Saskatoon. I had my issues mailed to me directly from overseas, but I have been keeping an eye out locally. Too bad! I did put in a request at both our big bookstores, so we'll see what happens. In the mean time, I'm awaiting an order directly from the UK Embroiderers' guild.
