From Cheryl Fall:
I've been stitching since I could hold a needle without hurting myself. It was a natural thing for me and I was stitching before I even realized what happened as my mother, grandmothers and aunts were all highly creative, skilled stitchers. Designing needlepoint and stitchery projects was a natural progression for me.On About.com I'll share original patterns, tips and instructions for all types of needlepoint projects. It's my sincere hope to share the joy of needlepoint with you, and I look forward to making new needlepoint friends.
