The Story of


when i was little, i always said i was going to be an artist. i loved drawing, and art class, and color, and pattern, and i'm pretty sure, at the age of 7, i was a little much about the whole thing.

and i still am. every day i think- what am i going to make? and i sew, or draw, or stitch, or all of it. i've been lucky that my creativity has supported me, given me interesting jobs, a corporate design career, and now i love sharing the inspiration- both in making, and teaching/learning. whether it's creating a modern quilt pattern, or helping your little one to get interested in stitching with detailed how-to's - i want to be an accessible stitching establishment.

needle+thread started as a seattle (space needle) street style (thread = clothing) blog a zillion years ago. now i want it to be a destination for creators, makers, art class nerds like me, who just want to play. let's play.
