Rogue Blingy Magnets Product Review

It is an on-going joke among my stitching friends that I pretty much only stitch small canvases. I find myself thinking that even something 8″ square is “too big.” When it comes to needle minders, this poses a problem. The tendency of late has been for magnets that are bigger and often with more bling. […]

Rainbow Gallery Glisten Thread Review

The newest thread from Rainbow Gallery is a real winner! I just love it. Like many other threads it’s a combination of metallic and a matte thread. This time it’s metallic combined with Merino wool.
