Breaking News: Stitching Besties Have Arrived

Daria and Rachel just announced their new venture--Stitching Besties!

Their motto is "Needlepoint with a wink!"  The "needlepoint widower" t-shirt cracked me up.

Cheryl Asks a Question

Over at NP Nation, Cheryl asked a question a lot of us have wondered:  "How do you know which threads you can use a hair straightener on?"

For those who don't have a Facebook account, I'll quote Debbie Rowley's answer in full.  

"I caution my classes not to use it on pearl cottons or braided threads (Silk Lame' Braid) - it flattens the twist and these particular threads are meant to be twisted. It works great on ribbons of all kinds (Neon Rays, Neon Rays+, Flair, Frosty Rays, silk ribbons, etc.), stranded threads (silk, cotton and rayon), and metallic braids (twisted tightly enough that the twist doesn't flatten)."

If you aren't familiar with Debbie, she's DebBee's Designs.  You can admire her designs and browse her charts and classes here--
