Hey! I’ve come across the coolest artist, Allie Biddle, of Bedthread, who is creating a new genre of paper goods and decorative items. She’s renewing the art of cross-stitch and putting it in a fresh light. This is definitely NOT your great-grandmother’s version of cross-stitch.
I LOVE her take on greeting cards that makes the recipient instantly want to frame them. Allie also does necklaces and hoops. And, for those of you lucky enough to live in the Denton/DFW area, she’ll even give you a one-to-one lesson. I might just have to schedule this for my next visit to Big D!Have you noticed a renewed interest in crafts that once would have seemed old-fashioned? It seems the more we transition to computers and phones to run our lives, that we crave a taste of days gone by.
All I know, is I am loving what Allie is doing and I have a feeling she’s just getting started!
