About The Mindful Needle


About The Mindful Needle Designs

Crafting – it’s in my DNA. My mom, grandmother, and great-grandmother were the biggest crafting influences in my life. Glue, yarn, popsicle sticks, glitter, fabric – you name the craft supply and it was part of my daily life.

The one craft that I did not like while growing up was anything to do with stitching or embroidery. It wasn’t until I was in college that I gained a love for cross stitch.

I cross stitched for several years and then set it aside to learn new crafts. But when I started working for a local cross stitch designer and began charting her designs for her, I rekindled my love of stitching.

Fast forward a few years and I am now designing my own patterns. It all started with with a Christmas ornament submitted to the Just Cross Stitch ornament design contest. My design was selected as one of six grand prize winners and will be published in the October 2020 issue of Just Cross Stitch. This was the impetus I needed to jump into designing.
