Squidoo Added Needlework in its Own Neighborhood – Yay!

I did a personal little happy dance when Needlework was added as a category (neighborhood) on Squidoo the other day. I volunteered to be an “angel” and keep an eye out for great Squidoo lenses on the topic.

Since it’s a new sub-category it’s a little empty right now, so I’m here to invite you to stop on by and create a Squidoo lens on anything having to do with needlework to help grow the neighborhood a little more. I’ll be sprinkling squid angel dust on the best lenses to give them a little rankings boost!

If you’re not familiar with Squidoo, I invite you to poke around and check it out a bit. You can build pages based on your interests and even make a little extra money with those pages. For example, earlier this month I got a nice 80 dollar payment from them, and I’ve seen some “lensmasters” making over 1,000 dollars a month by working on Squidoo full time.

Even if you don’t become a full time Squidoo lens maker, I do hope you’ll sing up and make at least one needlework based lens to help us spread the cross stitch love! ;) I’d really appreciate it and I’ll be giving the occasional shout out here from Stitching the Night Away to great lenses I find over there.

Happy Stitching!
Kind Regards,

About Loretta Oliver

I’ve been a cross stitcher since I was 8 years old. It was something I learned as a Girl Scout when we did a project for a badge related to crafts and the group choose to cross stitch a holiday design on a red sweatshirt using waste canvas. (Talk about hard first project, that was such a pain!) I was one of the first ones finished and I’ve had a needle in my hand almost every day since then.


  1. [...] ago Squidoo made changes to their categories and subcategories. You might remember my rejoicing over a subcategory being added just for needlework. Well, not long after that change Squidoo asked for volunteer angels to watch over these categories [...]
