How did you learn?

My Grandmother. Being German she taught me to stitch( on gingham) /sew/knit & crochet at a young age.

Do you have any “in real life friends” to share your stitching with in person, or maybe a local stitch-n-bitch with a local stitch group?

Tell us about it so we can be jealous.

Yes. I’m a member of the Sampler Guild of the Rockies. We meet Monthly September through May.

Side note from Loretta: I love seeing local groups like this take shape! I really need to find something like that here.

What project finish are you most proud of?

Bonus question: Add anything you’d like to share here about stitching!

It is my favorite form of needlework. I love to crochet & knit but stitch the most. I hope it carries thru other generations.

I certainly agree. Special thanks to Patti for participating and sharing her stitching history with us. Happy stitching everyone!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE samplers! How pretty yours are! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and works….

  2. Hi Loretta,

    I am co-owner of a Yahoo stitching group called World of Charity Stitching. Would you be willing to do a post about our group? We would love it if you could. I can send info and photos of some of the items we stitch and donate. We always welcome new members to our group. (In fact I just completed the Believe in Yourself piece you had talked about and have made it into a tote bag for a young girl at a domestic violence shelter.)

  3. Though I have known you thru some Yahoo groups for a while it is nice to read about your background and get to know you a little better Patti! 🙂
