  1. Erica Wilson was my first needlework superstar. I finished a few of her kits, and have a couple of her books. I also remember watching her PBS show when I was a lot younger.

    1. Me, too! Except I never bought any of her kits. They weren't available in my area. There wasn't (and still isn't) and sort of needlework shop there unless you quilt or sew clothing.
