Earlier today we made an announcement on the &Stitches blog about not releasing new issues of our e-zine anymore (at least not any time soon). Obviously it was a hard decision to make. Both me and Carina loved putting the issues together and the positive response we received in the Embroidery community was and is heart warming. However it was a lot of work (A LOT!) for just two people to make the zine and it took up so much of my time that I noticed that things and ideas I wanted to try for myself and my own business were put on hold. So it's a bit like the 'when a door closes, a window opens' thing (or was it a window that closed and a door that opens???) Anyway... you get the idea. It is sad to say goodbye to the zine, but there is a lot of other good stuff to do. And who knows what opportunities will come along?
The good news is also that the &Stitches blog continues! We (that's me, Carina and Julie) have been featuring inspiring embroideries, tutorials and artists on the &Stitches blog for the past year and we will continue to do so in the future! The great thing is that we get along excellently as a team and I can't wait to meet up with both ladies when I'm in London this July. :)
P.S. wondering what that picture above is all about? Be sure to check back tomorrow and I will tell you all about it. :)
