The Stitchers Village is a wonderful community about embroidery. There are plenty of shops to find, a forum for discussion, a monthly newsletter, competions and a school teaching online classes. It’s a great place to be, membership is free, and you get lots of input. I’m teaching a class there myself. The Village is made up as a village map.
I haven’t gone through the site thoroughly yet, but it definitely seems worth checking out. Thanks, Sibille! Go to The Stitchers’ Village.
