My name is Janis Note. I am the designer behind Noteworthy Needle, a new cross stitch design company. My first release is a kit containing predrilled sunglasses, or magnifiers, for you to embroider.
I have other designs which I will be releasing in the near future including a few reproduction samplers. But for the time being, I am very busy drilling holes in lenses.
The first item I remember stitching was the backside of a latch hook pillow. I felt compelled to backstitch a note to my mother on the otherwise blank canvas. My first actual cross stitch piece was a design which I altered and added a poem of my own creation about 31 years ago.
In the past ten years I have designed several projects for my local EGA Chapter. I found that I really enjoy the process of creating a design as well as teaching others the steps to complete the projects. With encouragement and help from other designers, I made the plunge into the business in August 2013.
I must ask a favor of you though…
Please support your local needlework shop, if possible, before ordering through me directly. They are much-needed for our industry to thrive.
Thank you for your interest,
