warm homespun greetings

Greetings, wonderful stitchers! Thanks to our resolute stick-to-it-iveness (routines, projects, helping others, etc.), we made it through a long cold winter. Hopefully you’ve taken some time out to relax and rejuvenate.

In this issue you’ll find examples of sticking with it. In Charitable Cause you’ll read about a relentless pursuit to end Alzheimer’s disease.

Our summer issue was shot at the Warbler House, a charming former farm now used as a vacation rental ( The home sits on two acres in the Leelanau Peninsula of northern Michigan, a family-friendly vacationland perfect for quiet rest, good food, and birding … or for more active pursuits such as kayaking, dune climbing on Lake Michigan, and cycling. Our host, Marissa Wege, tells us that the stone house is approximately 100 years old. It was originally built to be used by the people who worked the farm, while the owner lived in a different home above the farmland. The house is filled with an eclectic mix of antiques, mid-century touches, and homey textures and soft goods. One of our favorite features of the property were the three rustic outbuildings that…

tada! notes from our readers

CLOSE FRIENDS Two weeks ago I made a rare trip out and went to the bookstore where I purchased your Winter Issue. Your cover project, Friends, really appealed to me—maybe it was seeing a group of friends who didn't have to wear masks or socially distance! Because I love rug hooking, wool appliqué, and counted cross stitch, I have a good stash of wool and DMC floss, so I easily gathered the needed supplies. I only have round trays so I had to improvise a bit with the layout. I decided to call my version Circle of Friends. I'm also going to make an orange pomander using your instructions. I've always loved your magazine but even more so now with staying at home. Looking through the projects in this and past issues…

wool appliqué

Dear Jeni, I am new to wool appliqué, and wondering about what to use to affix the wool pieces to my background before stitching, and what type of needle and thread you use for your wool appliqué. Thank you, Janet Dear Janet, Thank you for the questions! There are several ways to do this! When I first started doing wool appliqué back in 1998, I only used little appliqué pins to hold my wool shapes to the background. Then I found a temporary fabric glue product that I used. To use a glue product, just use little dots on the back of the wool, and not near the edges, because you do not want hard glue spots to try and put your needle through. The products I have used for this are Unique Stitch, Roxanne’s Glue-Baste-It,…
