In this class, you will learn over 100 hand embroidery stitches.

Your $15 monthly kit fee includes all the unique pages, designed by Amy, as well as the various threads, beads, and any other supplies needed to complete this heirloom. After the 20 pages are stitched, you will learn how to sew them together into a beautiful reference book that you and your family will love.To see all that this little Stitch Sampler has to offer, be sure to check out this short video by Amy!

I began sewing at the age of 8 and have always loved to create my own projects. My Mom and Dad taught me to use my hands. Throughout my childhood, my parents let me explore all areas of creativity. I learned how to sew, embroider, crochet, knit, macrame?, tool leather, tie flies for fishing, draw, use a potters wheel, made jewelry, did beading painting, and even did some woodworking. They pretty much encouraged me to try everything. Some things I did well, a lot of other things, not so well, but thank you to my parents for letting me try it! It always seemed that whatever I tried or did, I always came back to fabric! I have always loved the thrill of figuring out how to do something easier or faster or different to make it fit my own needs and personality. I LOVE to applique? as well as piece. Playing with color and touching the fabrics has always been fun for me and I feel a great sense of satisfaction creating quilts and items from my favorite medium. There is just something about fabric that makes me happy! In 2006 I started my pattern company called Under the Garden Moon. I love to share what I create, and hope someone learns something whenever they make one of my patterns. I have grown over the years and feel like I learned to not be afraid to try something new or scary. A new division of my pattern line is ThreaDoodlydoos. These patterns incorporate hand embroidery, mixing of textiles and fun embellishing. I have 8 children (haha ? 4 of them married my kids), 16 grandchildren and I have been married to my cute and supportive hubby for 38 years.
