Let’s get started…
What’s your favorite type of cross stitch project to work on?
Do you have a favorite designer?
Nora Corbett, Darlene O’Steen, and Brenda Gervais
How big is your cross stitching stash?
Three 12” x 12” baskets full
How long have you been stitching?
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?
My And They Sinned. By Examplar Dames (pictured left)
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!

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.)
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! 🙂
