Thread Bare


I’m an avid crafter with many interests but my main passion is cross-stitching. I’ve been stitching since I was about 16. I started with basic kits but have since branched out into large scale tapestry type projects. I find it a very relaxing and a de-stressing past time and enjoy creating something beautiful that will last a lifetime.

This blog is intended to help people at all levels of the craft and hopefully dispel some of those cross-stitching granny stereotypes out there.

I also enjoy making jewelry and have a series of blog articles and tutorials planned on this topic also, including:

  • How to make a macramé bracelet
  • How to make ladder wrap bracelet
  • How to make a beaded bracelet
  • How to make an infinity knot bracelet
  • Medical alert bracelets
  • Kumihimo braiding

I look forward to connecting with other crafty people and would love to hear any comments, feedback or questions anyone may have.
