Something New for You!

Hi,

I realize you have not received an ezine for quite some time. Family and medical “challenges” have kept me from publishing VEAC in a timely manner. I have though, when time permitted, added new information to the site during this time. While these situations have not been resolved, I will do my best to get it out as often as possible. That being said, here are the latest additions to the site. I hope you enjoy!

A Few New Stitches

Rope Stitch – This stitch is a great outline stitch. It gives the effect of a couching stitch. See Rope Embroidery Stitch .

Tapestry Stitch - The name "tapestry Stitch" is actually used for two different stitches. Do you know which ones? You can find the answer here: Tapestry Stitch.

Feather Stitch - Here is another stitch that are actually two totally different stitches. During the 1880's and 1890's you would know which one to use based upon the pattern. Today, when you say "Feather stitch," everyone knows exactly what stitch to use. No more confusion! Discover more here: Feather Stitch.

A New Crafts

Banner Fronted Shelf. Victorian ladies loved thier shelves. They were needed to show off all of their handiwork. But true ladies couldn't have bare shelves. Here is a simple craft they used to make thier shelves very special. See Victorian Banner Fronted Shelf.

Question From A Reader

Valerie asked "In regards to redwork quilts, could you tell me why some designs face each other and others don't?"

Does anyone know anything about this? Until she asked, I never really gave it a thought. She, as well as I, would love to know what you think. If you know the answer, just contact me. I'll share your answer with Valerie and post the answer in the next ezine.

That's it for this newsletter. You can expect another email from me in a few weeks with a lot of new and free content.

Until next time....

With warmest regards,

Mary
