Profiling Pat Mazu

This morning I wanted to share a profile of the counted canvaswork designer Pat Mazu I stumbled across when updating the Counted Canvaswork Designer tab.

You may have seen Pat's wonderful free designs in Needlepoint Now or Needle Pointers.

There is also a free project from Pat on the ANG website.

Pat's charts and her book on basic finishing are available from Stitches From The Heart.  I haven't seen the finishing book myself but it gets very good reviews.

I hope you enjoyed reading about this very talented lady and working some of her terrific stockings.

  1. LOVE Pat's designs and have done many of her small stockings. She is so generous with sharing her talents. She has beautiful designs and her color/thread suggestions are great. You can't go wrong with one of hers for a small project!

    1. You are right, Evelyn. She is always willing to hand over a chart to one of the NP magazines for folks to use for free. I love how she uses pattern. Sometime maybe I'll have time to work up a series of little stockings using her designs....
