Our May Stitcher of the Month is Linda Pleyer!
Here are some of her works and a bio written by her. Linda's works will be displayed in the store throughout the month.
"I have been needlepointing since the age of 12. I had been doing the old fashion cross stitch with the blue X's from Woolworth's and saw a package kit of needlepoint. My mother bought it for me and I was hooked. I read the directions and went from there.
While in High School I got a part time job in a needlepoint store in Tenafly - I never got paid - I paid the owner! I walked away with knowledge of new and better things even though it was still primarily wool at that time.
While going to college I did the cover of Family Circle magazine (it was 49 cents at the time! ) No painted canvas just counting. I also used a roller frame as, back then it was the best you could do and this project was quite big.
Life was busy and I didn't come back to needlepoint until discovering the Ridgewood Needlepoint store.
Now I work on several projects at a time with numerous in my stash to be worked on.
Threads now are so different from when I first started that I can't say I enjoy one more than another, they are all great in the right place on a canvas. I try to use many different stitches to enhance the canvas I am working on which means using a different stitch all the time.
As many of you know, I am the gadget guru along with Adrienne !! My box is full of tricks and different tools for different occasions.
I look to Mellissa Shirley, Machelle Somerville and Pippin mostly though can be persuaded to purchase from other designers lines."
