"I love stitching and teaching stitching. Counted thread needlework appeals to my logical mind and soothes my soul. Cross stitch, hardanger, drawn thread, and especially band samplers. I knit when I'm not stitching."
by TJBdesigns

My passion is counted thread needlework. Most people think of cross stitch when I say that and that is how it all started for me almost 40 years ago. You can see some of my favorite pieces here. Stitching is my therapy, but I love to knit too. I teach a stitching group at my local needlework shop.

Several years ago I decided to make scissor fobs for the ladies in my group. So I picked up some beads and other supplies and it became an obsession. I needed about eight gifts, but by the time I was done I had over two dozen! So I started selling them to friends. The owner of our local needlework shop asked me to make some stitch markers. Then I noticed some of my stitch group had trouble keeping their place in their projects. So I started making counting pins. And so it goes…

I firmly believe every needleworker should have pretty tools. So I make pretty and practical beaded scissor fobs, sewing stilettos, counting pins for needlepoint and cross stitch, stitch markers for knitting and crochet, needle threaders and needlecases. I make eyeglass leashes for those of us who still want to stitch, but need a little visual help. And when you’re tired of stitching and knitting, I make bookmarks to keep your spot in that trashy novel.


  1. Thanks so much, Kerry. It's been fun reading about so many great artisans. I'm honored to be here.

  2. Lovely blog! And I love Tommye's work. I have a few of her stitch markers and they are absolutely awesome. Congrats Tommye for the feature, you deserve it.
