Free Stitchinar: The Skinny on Embroidery Finishing
I asked, “What’s your biggest needlework-related problem?”
You said, “Finishing what I stitch.”
I asked, “What’s your 2014 Word of the Year?”
You said, “Finish,” “Focus,” “UFOs,” “End Zone,” and other things that mean “finally turn all this completed needlework into some sort of functional or displayable end product.”
All righty then, let’s do it!

We’ll put together a looooong list of finishing ideas and techniques, from framed pictures to accessories, from lacing to taping to sewing to edge stitching to decoupaging.
Sign up for this event even if you can’t attend live. We’ll post a replay after the event, and for a limited time, anyone registered will be able to watch it.
Win a Seat in a Finishing ClassStart digging through your stash and pulling out the unfinished embroideries.
Mike remembers me stitching this old New World Map design at Bristol Bay Lodge, our first caretaking gig. That’s from back before we started designing our own embroideries. That means it’s been rolled up in this plastic tube, stashed in an unheated storage space, moved to a heated storage space, carted here to the house, and stuck in a box in a crawl space for over twenty-two years!
All right. How old is your oldest unfinished embroidery? Post your shame in the comments here for a chance to win admission to one of this year’s finishing classes (value $39.97).
I’ll announce the winner at the stitchinar on January 11th. If you have a picture of your oldest unfinished embroidery, please send it to me at mail [AT] funkandweber [DOT] com.
