This time of the year all the great holiday ornaments folks have displayed will tempt us to purchase a Santa canvas to stitch for the 2016 holidays. Then we are faced with the task of coming up with a great beard stitch. One of the beard masters is Janet Zigler Casey, who teaches a very popular line of holiday ornaments. I thought you'd like to see all her beards. Click on each thumbnail portrait to get a better look.
If you stitch a lot of Santa Clauses and don't already own Diana Bosworth's little booklet Beards I Have Known, put it on your Christmas wish list. It is full of great ideas for stitches and threads to make fabulous beards.
Diana herself is another beard expert. Check out the Petei Santas at the French Knot in Texas, most of which Diana stitched!
Merry Christmas, Santa!
