In 2000, I joined a wonderful group of people in a fairly new venture. The venture was www.bellaonline.com. It was only a small site at the time, and was looking for women writers to take on specialised topics and write articles on those topics using their experience.
At the time, the internet was full of cross stitch - if you searched for embroidery, all that came up was cross stitch.
I decided to change that, and, with the support of Bellaonline, I would like to think that I did have a hand in bringing the many techniques of hand embroidery to the notice of the internet.
I have made the very hard decision to stand down from being the Embroidery Editor at Bellaonline, not because my love of embroidery has changed, but because my life has, and I cannot keep up my obligations of writing and posting one article per week.
That doesn't mean the end of my writing about embroidery - it just means it is moving to a different place (here) and I will be able to write at my own pace.
I hope that those of you who have followed me on Bellaonline will continue to do so here, and will share your love of embroidery with me and the world.
