10 Inspirational Needlework Blogs

This is a list of some of the needlework blogs I read on a regular or semi-regular basis. Things I really really like to spend time on when I can.
So, in no particular order, my 10 favorite inspirational needlework blogs.
  • Pintangle – Sharon Boggin’s blog. Between this and her stitch dictionary, my stitching life could be complete. :)
  • Annie’s Crazy World – I found this site through Sharon’s. Annie is one of Sharon’s Australian friends, and follows her sampler and her crazy quilting escapades. Very cool eye candy.
  • Grumpy Shopkeeper – Sally Webster keeps a small shop in Edinborough, and blogs about her adventures with knitting, crochet and other needlework stuff.
  • Virginie - yes, it IS in French. Look at the pictures if you don’t read French. :)
  • Moonsilk -Just cool needlework to look at.
  • Rooted In Mississippi – Rissa stitches and bellydances in Mississippi.
  • Elmsley Rose - Megan is learning historical embroidery by making a beautiful sampler of stitches.
  • Needle ‘N Thread - If you’re interested in the broad needlework world like I am, you’ll want to keep up with Mary Corbet’s blog.  Pictures, giveaways, and lots and lots of good information.
  • Witchypoo - Lovely stuff. Just beautiful work, in everything – art journaling, needlework, and such.
  • Linn Skinner – she’s been off and on because of health issues, but Linn Skinner provides really cool links, and she’s a gem of a source for historic needlework information.

    As far as I’m concerned, you’re way up on the list (even though you’re near the bottom when it’s typed out!) I rarely miss a day popping over to your blog. Wondering if you’re ready to stitch camels yet. Heehee.

    I have recently been sent photographs of the most amazing needlework – a large banner depicting scenes made from rice, seeds and dried plant material. I have posted them on my blog for the world to see and hope you might find them of interest. Kind regards Johnson

    Johnson, that is absolutely beautiful! Thank you for sharing it!

    Last month I had the opportunity to see a Victorian era moss-work picture in Fayetteville, NC – it’s apparently the largest of that type of work that the national curators have seen… Absolutely amazing what has been done in the past with materials that we tend to identify with “things elementary school children bring home to mother.”
