We will be announcing another Stitch Along like Moon Garden in the New Year!

glad I got that off my chest…LB

274 thoughts on “Day 10-Valdani

  1. I’ve quilted and hand stitched for about 8 years so not a beginner but I haven’t worked on wool for about 3 years. I need to get back to all my projects from your shop!

  2. I would say that I am an intermediate wool stitcher. I love it and try to make some time every week to stitch a little. Still building my stash of wool and valdani threads.

  3. Seasoned veteran here. I have taught both embroidery and wool work classes and have completed a number of quilts that combine those techniques. Winning some Valdani will help feed my addiction!

    1. I have been doing wool stitching for about 4 years, I’m not a beginner but I feel like one. I will divulge my dirty little secret. I hated hand stitching until I started doing wool Applique. I’m a lefty so trying to follow directions for right handlers is quite challenging. I did find a good book for left-handed stitchers and that has made stitching easier and enjoyable. Love the wool box subscription. Thanks for all the great patterns and goodies.

  4. I enjoy stitching with Valdini thread and my collection could certainly use some expansion. I’m not a veteran stitched yet, but I’m working on it.

  5. I love handwork and working with wool is so wonderful because it is so forgiving and artsy and means you do not have to be perfect which is what I struggle with in patchwork piecing. I love embellishing and using different stitches.

  6. I’m a beginner! Just stitched my first project with Valdani yesterday…two of the snowflake towel kits from your store. So fun! I’m hooked already on Valdani!!

  7. I have stitched sporadically but am still a beginner but I do have your latest book and hopefully that will help me. I have gobs of wool and should start doing something with it. Plus have been to your retreat several times and I love your shop!

    1. I am a long time stitcher, self taught, but I still seem to learn something new all the time which is good.

  8. Can’t wait for the stitch along. I love Moon Garden. Thanks for the deal on thread. Can’t have enough colors.

  9. I am a beginner stitcher! I need to build up my thread collection. Thanks for the opportunity from a Wisconsinite stuck in Tenn!

  10. I’m not a beginner on much of any hand skill, although some are dormant. I love creating and Valdani, and cooking when the mood hits me, and my family certainly.

  11. I consider myself an advanced beginner. I tried wool Applique in the past but it never sank in. Until Moon Garden! Now I am truly hooked. I probably have at least 10 wool projects fused and partly stitched, including finishing borders on Moon Garden and Twilight Garden as well as this year’s sbow! I need to focus and finish! And my issue is I have to have the EXACT thread mentioned in the pattern or I feel it will be wrong! I have to get over this! Haha

  12. I have hand stitched for quite a few years, but I most often use stitches to enhance other (fibre arts) works. So I might add french knots for texture or add feather stitch for same. I do love those valdani threads for this as the colours are lovely. Many many years ago I did cross stitch, but I know my eyes are not up to the precision required today.

  13. thread is an addiction of mine, same as wools, and materials in general. If I see it and like it, what the heck I may need it down the road and if I don’t buy it now, it may not be available IF I needed it. Never, never have to much thread and Valdani is only available to me by ordering online. I am beginning to use more and more 8 weight so need to start replenishing my stock with that. I need thread NOW.

  14. I would say I’m an advanced beginner. I must also tell you that the best tips I got were from you in Madison at your workshop. You are a great teacher and mentor. I learned a lot from you. I just need time to practice stitching to improve.

  15. I have been a quilter for a few years but have never worked with wool. I have no clue what weight of Valdini I would even need to purchase! 2020 is THE YEAR I will add working with wool and Valdini to my repertoire!

  16. You introduced me to Valdani with your SBOW. I’ll admit the first year I used a few, blending with other threads I had on hand. Quickly realized how much more pleasing to the eye! Love that you are doing another sewalong! Although I’m way behind on my wool projects. 2018 will get finished eventually, more border threads needed. Thread book is so handy!

  17. I’m not a beginner but don’t consider myself a seasoned stitcher either. I fall somewhere in the middle. I can tell you that Valdani is my favorite and the only thread I use on my wool Appliqué.

  18. I passed a lot of my Valdini thread to a couple of my friends because they did not have that brand. So if I won, I would pass that also to them. I did several projects but I like fabric sewing better. ….don’t hit me. Paula in KY

  19. Seasoned but still learning. My second ever wool appliqué project was your PumpkinRow pillow for a dear friend.

    1. Very very beginner! I took a class from you few years ago…hmmm.. still havent finished my wool project.

  20. I am a seasoned stitcher. I have been stitching on wool when there were not very many designs out there to Stitch. And now there are so many amazing designs that I don’t have time to stitch all the ones I want to. Thank you for all your beautiful designs and beautiful wool!

  21. So glad your dentist hunted you down, if you are using your teeth rather than scissors! 😱 from a former dental assistant, lol! At my age, I feel I am a seasoned stitcher! Wool and Valdani are tops for me. I always need to add to my collections of thread, thanks for this chance!

  22. I am not well seasoned, but since I get the Wool Box subscription, I expect to become seasoned over time! And I cannot cut thread with my teeth because I wear Invisalign braces… at this Medicare stage of life! I will have a nice smile at my 70th birthday party! Finally!

  23. I am an advanced stitcher and addicted thread and pattern buyer. I also LOVE to collect everything for a project….put it in an unlabeled bin (to make things harder when I want to find it!)…..and perpetual period user…not comma….but I love it all!!!!!!! Sigh

  24. I think I’m an advanced beginner to intermediate stitcher. I’ve stitched on cotton fabric as well as a few wool projects. I also like crazy quilt embroidery.

  25. Have been quilting more than 20 years now but only started stitching with your new book! I love it and so glad I took the plunge into wool appliqué. I love your designs and your posts. They give me so much inspiration! Thank you.

  26. I’ve appliqued with cotton fabric for years, and am now learning to use wool. I am also doing big-stitch hand quilting on a Civil War type quilt,which is looking pretty good.

  27. Unseasoned, but I have the Wool Box subscription so I expect to learn and grow as a Woolie! And… I cannot cut thread with my teeth because I wear Invisalign braces for health purposes… by my 70th birthday party I will have a nice smile!

  28. I’m more of a beginner stitcher- I have your new wool book and have it with my project so that I can see how to do things right!! thank you for the chance to build up my thread supply- I am really loving wool applique !!!
    Merry Christmas

  29. I LOVE Valdani! I first used it when I got your “geraniums” wool kit to stitch. I am a beginner — I don’t try to fool anyone into thinking otherwise! Now I’m working on finishing your “My Crazy Life”. And I need to order more Valdani…… I’m hooked!

  30. I guess I would rate myself in between. I have been stitching for a number of years, but know I still have a lot to learn. In the last year I have made one of Lisa’s Spring mats with all the decorative stitches. If your wanting to improve your stitching this is the project to buy. You get some blanket stitch practice, but you also get a chance to do a lot of different stitches. It’s like doing a stitching sampler. Great fun!!! Thanks Lisa they are really fun!

  31. I’m a seasoned stitcher. Also a thread snub as I only use Valdani mostly # 8’s and 12. I don’t own all the colors as there is no where in my area to buy it. I will be sad when my supply gets low and I have to start buying on line.

    1. I guess I’m an intermediate stitcher. Love learning new techniques in stitching. Valdani is my first choice of thread. Love experimenting. You can always undo, if you don’t like.

  32. I am a beginner quilter. I have known how to sew for years, but now quilting for 1-2 years. I’ve done some hand stitching, but I used DMC floss!

  33. A beginner stitching with applique and wool. My friend stitches lovely projects and I was inspired by her to read your blog. I bought your book “Wool, Needle and Thread” and enjoy reading it. Thank you for all you do to encourage us.

  34. I am a beginner to say the least. Being intimidated by all the beautiful Stitchery I see makes me even more.
    But I have it on my “to do “ list for 2020. I have to start somewhere and will date all my projects to see my progress. Thanks and wish me luck.

  35. I am a seasoned stitcher … it goes along with my seasoned age! Have been stitching for close to 75 years. Only became enamored with wool recently. Would love to expand my collection of Valdani threads. Probably need to purchase your wool book soon to increase my knowledge of the correct techniques.

  36. I am an absolute beginner working with wool appliqué! I purchased one of your kits on eBay because I loved the look of it and found your website. Last week I put in my order for the thread kit that matches the kit, and an amazing scissors set as my Christmas gift to myself. I’m hoping the threads arrive in time as I’m planning on doing the project between Christmas and New Years. Can’t wait! (I learned embroidery as a child from my grandmother, and I’m an experienced sewer, so I think this will be a great new addiction.)

  37. I’m a seasoned stitcher. Began as a child and never stopped. I love it all, wool, machine piecing, hand appliqué, cross stitch, smocking, embroidery etc. I love wool because I can do it in the car (when someone else is driving). I need magnification for cross stitch and small work. I am one of those people who can’t just sit and watch TV. A needle and thread are always in my hand. Always juggling too many different projects at once, one now being Twilight Garden. Thank you for all you do for our passion, love your style.

  38. I am also a seasoned stitcher! My grandmother taught me how to embroider when I was in first grade. That was many decades ago and I still love stitching! It’s like my yoga! So soothing and full of wonderful memories of Grandma!

  39. I have been stitching for a long time and Valdani is by far my favorite thread to use. It just glides so well through the fabric. Love your stuff for sure!

  40. I have a group I stitch with. We do projects together. I am the rebel. I look at the piece and pick my colors and stitches to what I feel like!

  41. I consider myself a beginner. I have many projects purchased. I just have to decide what to do when! Meaning quilting or stitching. I love your book on the how to! It really has helped!

  42. I just started wool stitching in February. Then I took your workshop at our Guild in Wausau. I learned so much and am now hooked on wool stitching. I’m a wool box subscriber as well and love it so much!! Thank you so much for teaching me Lisa!

  43. I used to do a ton of counted cross stitch on 36 count linen, as well as some wool work and embroidering on garments for my daughters. Now that they are adults, and my eyes have changed significantly, I am doing less linen work and more quilting. The Valdani threads are wonderful to work with, colours are yummy. Thanks for carrying them. Jill in Phoenix/Calgary

  44. Intermediate wool stitcher here. Started out cutting wool, pinning it, getting frustrated with thread catching…..still loved it over needle turn. Enter Primitive Gatherings…learn about Steam a Seam 2 lite, wool mat, correct needles and VALDANI. Thank you, Lisa/PG

  45. I suppose I am an intermediate stitcher. I still have to look up how to do many stitches, but I am getting better about having them even. I love stitching on wool because it “needles” nicely and I get to use thicker threads and larger stitches so the work goes pretty quickly (relatively speaking). I appreciate having patterns that use more than just blanket and stem stitch

  46. I have done stitching with DMC floss but have not tried the valdani thread. Thank you for a chance to win some.

  47. I learned wool appliqué and quilting after seeing A Primitive Garden at my local quilt shop. I just had to make that quilt! Took me over 2 years l, but I did it and it’s fabulous and hangs over my banister. I had never heard of Valdani floss but used it on this quilt. Wonderful threads! I never cease to be inspired by all the quilters out there! Thank you!!

  48. I have been quilting off and on for years but i am fairly new to Wool applique and I find I can’t stop looking for Wool in all places! I love everything about it, the ease of working with it wherever you go, the fun patterns, and especially it’s forgiving nature! Belonging to PGWoolbox is the best of all worlds!!! You wait and voila it comes bearing wonderful woolly surprises!!
    Thank you Lisa and the gang for all the woolly goodness you send our way! And thanks again for a chance to win Valdani thread as you can never have enough for all the many projects still to come!
    Carmen

  49. I enjoy stitching but have not done much of it for years. I am trying to get started again so sort of a beginner.

  50. I am a seasoned stitcher, but realize there is always sooo much more to learn! Valdani’s luscious colors only make learning more fun.

  51. Up until recently when I just started learning how to work with wool I have only used Valdani thread to do Bobbin work using my sewing machine. Lots of different uses for this beautiful thread.

  52. I am a seasoned stitcher and I love handwork. AND I love Valdini thread! Your little thread book is wonderful. Although, I tend to still buy multiples of the same threads! I put my projects and all of the supplies, including a pair of small scissors, needles and thread in project cases. Once it is organized, it stays. I want to be able to just pickt the project up and start. So, if I am working on a different project, I buy a new thread. Seems silly, but it works for me!

  53. I have been at it a long time…my mom started me embroidering stamped pillow cases in the 60’s. But my favorites are the 12 valdani threads and projects like Moon Garden…..I loved doing that one.

  54. Very new beginner to wool needle craft. In fact so new that I asked my BF that I wanted your book for Christmas so I can learn. Really want to learn to do those sheep. 2020 goal

  55. I sure hope your dentist doesn’t read your blogs! Teeth for cutting threads!!

    I am a seasoned quilter/stitcher and my work is not as good as it used to be because of health issues but it gives me satisfaction, peace to my soul, and a smile to my face. That’s what is important to me.

  56. I am a novice hand stitcher but I come from a long line of exquisite hand stitchers so I am hoping, that with practice, I will capture that skill as well. Merry Christmas.

  57. So, I am 68 years old and have never been able to cut my thread with my teeth. Have tried different kinds of thread and have tried at different ages and still cannot cut the thread. Must have to have a certain kind of teeth!
    But to make up for it, I have started quite a collection of embroidery scissors!!

  58. I’ve been stitching a couple of years but there are so many stitches that I want to learn – some are basic. Your new book, Wool, Needle and Thread has been invaluable. Thanks for doing that.

  59. I have done several of you block of the month wool quilts and I love them all. Last year I decided to take a break and did not sign up for Moor Garden. I am now sorry because I think it is the prettiest one yet. I am eagerly awaiting to see what next year’s will be and plan to be back on board. I have just purchased you new book on wool and it is really good so I’m inspired all over again. I have been doing wool appliqué a number of years and it is my favorite type of hand work and quilting.

  60. Wow!. Great deal!. I would say I am an intermediate stitcher and am very happily and slowly working through your 2018 SBOW…thanks

  61. I’m an intermediate stitcher. I would love to take a workshop with YOU someday soon! I will check the CA shop schedule and make it a priority over all the other busyness in my life !!! I definitely need a break and what’s better than a needle and thread to relax?

  62. A beginner with wool applique would describe me. I have completed one small table topper so far. I do have another wool project ready to work on. Love the colors and the look of Valdani threads for embroidery.

  63. I love Valdani threads. They seem to glide right through the fabric. I would rank myself as a newbie to wool applique. I love the look but am not good enough at the stitching. I do a lot of needle turn applique and have been known to adapt wool patterns to cotton.

  64. I am somewhere between a beginner and more seasoned. I did a lot of stitching before depression entered my life. 2020 is time to get back into it.

  65. I started wool appliqué on your first cruise to the Caribbean. Since then, I have become an avid appliquér and I love PG designs…wool appliqué and quilts. (Evidenced by my purchase yesterday.) I would love winning Valdani threads to add to my collection.

  66. I would say I am a seasoned stitcher! I stitch a little something almost everyday! I Love to stitch with Valdani 12 wt.
    I too use my teeth. I firmly believe my hand and my teeth are God given tools and should be used!

  67. It all your fault, you have addicted me. I love the stitch block and had one of your block of the months had done some of it. And then my dad got sick and I took it with me as I set with him and finished all the blocks. Now I’m hooked. Merry Christmas.

  68. I LOVE VALDANI THREAD!! I bought a kit and decided to buy all the thread as well. Now I am hooked! I am a hooked newby to wool Appliqué! Love your designs!!! I can’t keep up with your new items but I am certainly trying!!!

  69. Somewhere between seasoned and beginner. Will be working on lots of projects after the holidays when we’re snowed in.

  70. I’ve been sewing most of my life on and off, but would not consider myself a veteran. Love to embroider when time permits and love the look of wool projects and do them when I have time too.

  71. Most of my hand stitching has been hand quilting and needle turn Appliqué. I’ve done a little embroidery and a few wool projects and I enjoy using embroidery thread on these projects. So a beginner still. Would love to win this giveaway!

  72. I love my little thread book – it slips right in my purse every time a go to a quilt shop or quilt show!

  73. Valdani thread is the best. Wish I had more so maybe I’ll be lucky and win this, lol. Sort of an intermediate stitcher . Would like to do more.

  74. As a beginner stitcher, I’ve found that the Valdani threads stitch so smoothly and look beautiful. I’ve also learned from your new book how to do stitches properly!!

  75. I have worked on wool for a few years. I have been working on improving my work. Thanks to Lisa’s book I am learning a lot. Love working with wool, especially from my wool boxes!

  76. I have been stitching for many years and don’t consider myself a beginner but definitely not a master quilter like yourself! I just know it brings me great joy and happiness to complete a project to the best of my ability…especially if it’s a gift. I work mostly with wool and punchneedle and use DMC and Valdani would be a Christmas treat. Christmas Blessings to you and your family and your cute quilt model Jeter🎅🏻🎄⛄️🦌🐶

  77. Love stitching … especially on wool. Valdani
    Threads are wonderful…thanks for the chance to win. I am a well worn and very seasoned stitcher. Merry Christmas!

  78. I am a seasoned stitcher. I have taught wool applique in my quilt guild. I LOVE Valdini threads, but never seem to have enough (Lol). I was once referred to a lady that was getting out of sewing and wanted to sell the wool she had. I bought gorgeous 100% wool (yards) at about $4 per yard. So I have quite the stash! Love your blog Lisa and all your patterns! One day I am going to take a class from you!! Love your new wool book – so much awesome information!

  79. I am a seasoned stitcher. I took my first wool appliqué class from you at the Georgia quilt show, it was probably about 10 years ago. I was immediately hooked! I have had the privilege of taking quite a few classes with you since then and am thankful for that. You are an awesome teacher Lisa. I love Valdani, just when I think I have a pretty good collection of it a new project comes along and I need more. 🙂

  80. Not a beginner but not an expert either – intermediate I guess. Love handwork: handpieced 3 quilts while learning to piece (I do not do the quilting), love to do binding, embroidery of all kinds including wool, at one time crewel embroidery and counted cross stitch. Valdani threads are beautiful.

  81. I have done some sort of hand embroidery or applique for years, but my first experience with wool was the freebie from the Summer Block of the Week a couple of years ago. I would consider myself an intermediate stitcher, but wool appliques are a great to stitch on!

  82. Love working on my wool projects. I even have family members joining me doing wool appliqué. Wish I had a way to keep the number with the thread when it gets to the end of the roll. I never leave the store empty handed.

  83. I’m a lapsed stitcher. I love doing handwork but haven’t done much for years. I look at and pet my wool at least once a year but not much else.

  84. I have sewn for years, started quilting 30 years ago and just started this Wool Madness. I’ve completed several projects and I’m happy with the results. I have a lot to learn. I started applique with DMC two strands of floss. I purchased Valdani perle cotton and love it. I only use DMC when I don’t have the right Valdani color in my stash.

  85. I am a veteran stitcher. I began doing wool embroidery many, many years ago when I worked at a cross stitch shop. I used DMC floss and bought wool wherever I could find it. I just love your beautiful wools and “needful things” to go with it. 🙂

  86. I consider myself an immediate stitcher. My dream is someday to take one of your wool applique classes. Looking forward to next years BOM even though I am still working on Twilight Garden, Moon Garden and 2019 Wool BOM.

  87. I have been a quilted and stitcher for many many years. Rug hooker for about 10 years. I am always stitching.

  88. Love Valdani threads! I might need to get that book since I seem to buy the same threads over and over again! Love the new stitching book. I just dropped mine off at Staples to have it spiral bound so I can open it flat when I am working on new stitches.

  89. I truly love the color and texture of Valdani threads. I have become a seasoned veteran over the last 15 years. Hand sewing is so relaxing. I can watch/listen to a good movie or just click on my favorite music and it makes my day.

  90. I am a seasoned stitcher. Started as a kid embroidering kitchen towels. Working in wool is much more fun, and portable.

  91. It seems I have always enjoyed hand stitching….I think it is in my blood. One of my grandma’s did beautiful precise work, the other enjoyed doing her own thing when it came to sewing for enjoyment (probably in part because she had a civil service job that was to alter army uniforms). Both always had a project in two “in the works” and I definitely inherited that habit! I can’t imagine what they would think with amount of inspiration and resources available on the internet.

  92. I’m one of those that took sewing in high school but then life got in the way. 30 yrs later my daughter asked me to hem a skirt. I was off to the races. I now have a 10 yr collection of fabric and stuff to go with it. I love it❤️

  93. I am not a beginner, more of an intermediate with the love of learning new techniques! I do have a small collection of Valadani threads and love working with them. Looks like it is the perfect time to add a few more😉

  94. I’ve been stitching for awhile but still consider myself a beginner. I finally decided not to worry how perfect my stitching is and just enjoy doing it! My secret is how many projects I have waiting for me. All hidden from my family!!

  95. I am what I would call an intermediate beginner as far as wool stitching goes. I have made a few wool projects, but they’ve all been quite small and simple.

  96. LOVE LOVE LOVE to stitch! I started on pillowcases as a little girl – Yikes I might be dating myself! 🤣😳🤪
    I just discovered stitching with Valdani and wool recently. So much richer effects than with DMC.

  97. I think I’d be considered an intermediate stitcher. I have been stitching a long time but I still have so much to learn!

  98. Goodness I love everything you make! I’m between a beginner and an intermediate stitcher. I haven’t strayed beyond the average craft store in terms of thread so I haven’t tried Valdani as I don’t know much about it. I’m an avid crafter and gardener too. Jan p.s. I use too many commas too janicelashley@gmail.com

  99. I am a fairly new stitcher with Valdani. I am finishing up the Old Glory you taught at our guild this summer. I love the thread and learning to love sewing on wool.

  100. I think I am a bit of a newbie. I have loved and collected them for years but there was a lot of holes in the process for me. Getting the wool boxes sparked something in me and I am so crazy for it. I have completed quite a few pieces and am now ready to work on all the kits I have collected over the years. You new book cinched it for me, and I tell everyone I know how great it is and to get it. It truly filled in the missing pieces and made everything so enjoyable. I am amassing quite a collection of Valdani and it makes me happy to look at it all.

  101. I am a beginner stittcher and wanting to be a faster stitcher because there are so many beautiful projects to do!

  102. I am an intermediate stitcher. I confess that prepping a pattern & the fabrics/wool to get ready to stitch is my least favorite part! If I could pay someone to trace pattern pieces onto Soft Fuse, iron onto the wool and then cut out all the pieces, I would love that! I enjoy arranging the pieces on the background and then ironing them down. But my very favorite part is the stitching!

  103. Hello! I’m a seasoned stitcher. I do lots of cross-stitch and embroidery…and a bit of all types of handwork. I have soooo many projects in my stash room that it is almost full to capacity. ;0. I’ve collected quilt kits (mostly yours), and wool kits (mostly yours), and all kinds of handwork kits. I love it all. I just need more time.
    I’ve just gotten enamored with Valdani though…it is lovely. I have about a dozen balls but I think now is a good time to add to my stash. Thank you for putting this on sale.

  104. I’m a seasoned stitcher too. Mostly working on the Twilight Garden and Moon Garden – trying to finish them both. Love working on them.

  105. I would say I’m an intermediate wool appliqué stitcher and seasoned at punch needle. Absolutely love Valdani thread and floss. Beautiful colors! Thanks for the sale Lisa!

  106. I used my book at festival this year to pick up more valdani & I admit that I spent quite a bit, but it makes me sooo happy to see all the beautiful colors! Will be ordering some more ad I’ve used #5 for embroidery & loooove it🥰.

    1. I am a beginner’s beginner with wool. Have not worked with wool. Have not worked with valdani. Have cross- stitched in the past and wanting to learn how to work with wool and stitches. Have a couple of small projects but hesitant to start. I have been known to use teeth as scissors a time or two also. I know, not good.

  107. I am not a seasoned stitcher but I am not new as I have done embroidery with floss on many projects. I have not used Valdani threads much, I’d love to try more projects with them.

  108. I have been quilting for 45 years and still find excitement in new methods. I have done Sue Spargo’s BOM for the last 6 years and love special threads now to embellish most of my quilts

  109. I have done quite a bit of wool stitchery but I feel I still need tips. I will be buying your new book. Recently I am finding it nice to sit and stitch more. Perhaps my age has something to do with that! Thanks for all you do. Merry Christmas Lisa

  110. I guess I’m a seasoned stitcher, but still learn from the masters like you!
    I drive a big rig and always have a project bag with me for down times.

  111. I am not a new stitcher or a veteran. Kind of in between. Always learning new things and loving everything! I have so many projects I want to make. I am so thrilled to have found wool! Absolutely love it above anything else and valdani is my favorite thread to use. Thank you!

  112. I am a novice at embroidery, but have a strong will to learn!
    You have probably been told, but your link (Valdini thread in above message) is not working. I hope it is not me, but will reload after I leave this message, just in case. Perhaps we have overrun the site? Hope it works later, will keep trying. I have some Valdani and really would like to add more colors in #8 for big stitch quilting. Thanks for all that you do, The inspiration just flows from your projects and presentations 🙂 Regards to all for the holiday season, Peggy

  113. I’m a seasoned stitcher and I love using Valdani thread. I think my first project with wool was the little houses given as free blocks one summer. I visited your shop on vacation and somehow ended up with 3. I never did anything with them until the pattern came out and I couldn’t resist. It was so fun. Then I bought the little baskets pattern and didn’t start it until I did the BOM with Moon Garden. I have loved learning all the different stitches. Thank you!

  114. Although I am a long-time stitcher of counted cross-stitch, needlepoint, quilting, I have never done any wool appliqué. I have some kits that I especially like and want to do, but haven’t started them. You have some kits I would love to stitch and I’ve asked for your newest book for Christmas. So, maybe 2020 will be the year! I LOVE your designs!

  115. I’m a brand new wool stitcher. While I know how much thread I need to do an EPP project I’m scared I will run out of Valdani. Never knowing how much I will need, I have a growing collection, but I’m still learning about what weights for which stitches. I’m loving the embroidery work on the Urban Rose BOM since I missed it this summer. Lisa’s new book is teaching me so much. I think I need more Valdani.🤗

  116. I have been stitching for many years, I just wish I had more time. I have to work to pay for my hobby. I would love more Valdani thread for my projects!

  117. I am a beginner at wool applique. I have two copies of your book Wool, Needle & Thread coming for Christmas presents for my daughter and myself. I do not have any Valdani threads yet! I am a fan of all your creations, especially your recent posting of your blue and white quilts…just beautiful! Thanks Lisa for sharing all your beautiful patterns!

  118. I am a beginner. I have been collecting wool and thread for about four years at Road to California and local shops. I found your thread book and the tips very helpful!

  119. I am a fairly seasoned stitcher and seldom leave home without a ( travel kit) wool appliqué project to work on where ever I may find myself sitting. I’m the one at the family gatherings sitting in the corner, watching all the activity, happily stitching away. I’m sure some members of the family secretly have a name for me. 😉
    I do help out with serving, dishes etc. but when the kids are playing and the adults are sitting around visiting I’m stitching.

  120. I’m just getting started collecting threads and that little notebook would be wonderful! My memory isn’t what it used to be.

    1. I also am a seasoned wool stitcher. I have the three book but if I like a color I do buy it again 🤪

  121. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Valdani threads! Its like getting a box of 64 Crayola Crayons as a kid! Remember the smell and the feel of those Crayons?! Touching the different weights and admiring the colors of Valdani threads gets my creative juices flowing like adrenaline! I have been hooked on Valdani for 8 years. I am always ready to learn a new stitch or technique, so I consider myself a lifelong learner!

  122. I’ve been stitching for about 50 years. I started with the Embroiderers Guild of America . Years spent with a needle and thread, learning new stitches. Lots of counted work, hardanger, needlepoint. Then I met a new friend at work who was into quilting. When I discovered Primitive Gatherings, Oh My Goodness! I’m addicted! Still quilting, kniting, embroidery but Wool is my passion.

  123. Although my mom taught be to sew as a child….I took my first quilting class in 2005. I had NO idea what an addiction it would turn into. jmh

  124. I would say I’m a seasoned stitcher. I have embroidered since I was a young girl and cross stitched since my teens. I picked up working with wool about 2012 and have fallen in the “sheep hole” you could say. Not only do I like to appliqué with wool but I love to rug hook. I also punch needle so I could always use Valdani thread to keep my addiction going.

  125. I am a seasoned stitcher and Valdani threads are my favorite! I have a nice collection of threads but can always use more ;-D

    Happy Holidays!

  126. Can a stitcher be a wanna be? I have 3 wool kits (unopened). I find myself choosing to complete one of my many quilting UFOs instead of tackling a wool project. It is the easier choice in my efforts to tidy up my sewing space and reduce storage needs. In the meantime, I have an extraordinarily talented stitching friend and I enjoy watching the progress of her magnificent projects.

  127. I have been stitching since I was a little girl but just this past year began using Valdani threads and absolutely love them. I could use more thread and promise to stitch every ball you send !!! Merry Christmas and happy stitching to all !!!! L

  128. I am an experience stitcher and love your wools. They are wonderful. I am growing in my stitching greatly in the last few years. Love your tutorials, kits, and your new stitch book. Can never have enough Valdani

  129. I love working with Valdani but was getting frustrated when doing blanket stitch at how twisted it would get. I’d always been taught to sew Left to right direction but found if I stitched right to left it doesn’t twist at all. . I’m working on block ten of Twilight Garden so very happy I found this out before I started this quilt. Just love your ur designs. Jeanette Gorthy

  130. Seasoned Quilter here, started wool embroidery with Lisa maybe 5 years ago. I’m a little lazy with the thread, I will toss 6 inches or less just cause I don’t like to re-thread a needle. The Moon Garden blocks are done. I am on my 3rd read of the finishing pattern…..yup….sometimes it takes that long…..Valdani is my favorite.

  131. I am probably more of a beginner. I stitch till my fingers go numb but do not have the expertise and beauty of you Lisa or as others that I know. Therefore, I use your fabulous book & always in tow, “Wool, Needle and Thread”. It’s the best & smartest purchase I’ve made this year! Valdani threads pearl cottons are the best! I won’t stitch with anything else.

  132. I seem to be a ‘Collector’ of wools, wool patterns, threads, etc. Someday I may actually start working on a project!

  133. I love this shop and designer – my Liberty Gatherings quilt was my first big wool project — it is amazing. If you don’t have the book to record your valdani — buy it you will love it. I love needle work with valdani.

  134. I started stitching about a year ago and LOVE it. I am not a veteran stitcher, but not a beginner either. I an still learning and love all of the tips and tricks veteran stitchers give. Thank you to all who have inspired me! Merry Christmas! 🎄

  135. I guess I am a seasoned stitcher. I actually like appliqueing best, but then I also sometimes add embroidery to my piece to give it interest. I keep my Valdani threads in a wonderful wooden 4 drawer small cabinet that I purchased at a craft show. Each drawer holds 20 balls of Valdani threads and it works beautifully so I can see all the various shades I need for a project.

  136. I am not a seasoned stitcher. However, I am close to a beginner. I look at some of all of your works and am amazed at the even stitches. Mine are rather primitive to say the least but I do love the process. I love Valdini thread and the look it gives a finished piece.

  137. I’m a medium sized stitcher… Lol, meaning I’ve been doing it for a long time and I love it but I’m not a seasoned professional. I can sit for HOURS and look at the thread and organize it and just touch it, almost like a touchstone. It makes me HAPPY to stitch because it truly is therapy for me.

  138. Even though I would not consider a day complete without having thread of some sort in my hand, I would classify myself a beginner in working with wool.

  139. I consider myself an intermediate beginner. I think the only stitch I have memorized is the blanket stitch. I tried needle turn applique and it was quickly left behind once I learned the wonders of stitching on wool. Looking forward to having more time to stitch this coming year and moving solidly into the intermediate category. Thanks for the sale on the Valdani thread. Love it!!!

  140. I consider myself to be an intermediate stitcher. I love the dimension that Valdani thread gives fancy stitches on wool appliqué. I cannot live long enough to stitch all my PG wool kits, but it doesn’t keep me from buying more! Ugh… huge fan!

  141. I used to be an avid stitcher doing crewel embroidery and some cross stitch but gave that up once I got into quilting. I do love the look of wool appliqué and have been trying to find the time to work that in. I recently purchased your new Wool book with all of the stitches so I will be ready when that door opens. I have also been starting a Valdani collection!

  143. Twilight Garden SBOW 2018 turned me into an advanced stitcher!! I love that quilt. Can’t wait to get it quilted. I’ve used many different threads over the years, and Valdani has them all beat!

  144. Love to stitch! Work with any number of threads but Valdani is my favorite, most of which I have purchased in your Menasha shop. Your patterns are the best, and your blog is wonderful. I have learned a great deal from you. Attended your lectures at the Wis quilt expo over the years too. Thanks for all the enlightenment!

  145. Not sure what I would call myself. For the last couple of years I have made four tree ornaments for my daughter’s family of four. Although I am certainly not a newbie, I seem to still have a problem with starting and stopping some stitches such as the blanket stitch. Hoping to get better in time. But time takes time …

  146. I consider myself an advanced beginner. I enjoy watching a project grow as I add each new piece and each new stitch.

  147. I have been piecing and quilting for a long time. But, I have just begun stitching with Valdani thread since I began to follow you. I actually have been attending the Paducah Quilt Show every April for many years. I know many women came to your booth and your husband rang up sales for me…… mostly fabric not much thread. I would love more colors of Valdani Thread and happy you carry all of them!

  148. While I love to stitch, I place myself as a seasoned beginner! I have always only stitched with the blanket stitch on my projects but when I participated in the Moon Garden stitch-along I really enjoyed learning all the new (to me) stitches.

  149. I am an experienced stitcher. Totally addicted to wool applique and embellishing it with different stitches and threads.

  150. I love Valdani thread! I would say I am a intermediate hand stitcher. I love doing hand stitching. I have a couple of your pin cushion kits in my sewing room I want to make soon. They are really cute!

  151. I have been stitching for a long time. The more colors of Valdani in my collection the better. I’ve been known to buy multiples of some colors because I like them so much! Happy Stitching!

  152. I’ve been using Valdani for wool appliqué for many years. It’s good to know you are carrying the complete line of these lovely threads.

  153. I have done cross stitch, embroidery and quilting, but have to admit that I am totally new to wool applique. I have purchased the flannel and wool required for your pattern “Penny Path” featured in American Patchwork & Quilting. Although I have purchased a few balls of Valdani thread, a larger assortment will be needed to create a more interesting quilt.

  154. I’m a seasoned stitcher and LOVE Valdani thread. You got me hooked on working with wool. Thanks for all you do!

  155. A member of our guild started a wool applique group several years ago. We get together one day a month and stitch and visit for 4 hours. It’s our favorite day of the month. I wouldn’t consider myself a veteran but I’m just finishing up the border stitching on summer BOW. I’m still learning but love stitching. Love Valdani thread.

  156. I am a seasoned veteran stitcher. I find handwork so relaxing. Looking forward to seeing the next stitch a long.

  157. I consider myself an intermediate stitcher. My first class was at your retreat house. I made a Christmas stocking. I decorate the mantle with it every year. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  158. I am a beginner at embroidery stitches but advanced in Hardanger, which uses perle cotton in 5 and 8. I am collecting wool scraps from my sewing so I can try wool embroidery.

    1. I would say I am an intermediate stitcher as I have worked on several wool projects but I would not consider myself a seasoned veteran. I like stitching with Valdani thread

  159. I joined a stitching group to work on cross stitch. Wasn’t going to do embroidery. Then wasn’t going to do wool applique. Needless to say, I haven’t done any cross stitch in a while. Haha

  160. I guess I am considered a seasoned stitcher at this point even though I rarely finish anything! Of course that’s mostly because I can’t resist any project you put out there! I spent the afternoon making your star cut out cookies that you posted during the holidays a few years back – they are still my absolute favorite. Thank you so much for everything you do and for being so wonderfully kind about sharing!

  161. I’ve been stitching off and on since I’ve been about nine years old. What I do most now is counted cross stitch, prefer ones with specialty stitches in it.

  162. I’m not a beginner but I have never been taught so I could be doing things wrong. I bought your new book so I could learn to do things right and well. After Christmas I hope to dig into that book and some projects. Excited. Merry Christmas.

  163. I’ve been stitching for many years but don’t consider myself a seasoned veteran. I recently got your new book so I can learn new stitches.

  164. I would consider myself an “almost” seasoned stitcher of wool appliqué, who learned from the best (YOU) and I too have issues of where to put comma’s and other punctuation. I LOVE valdani threads and LOVE LOVE LOVE your thread book, it is very well used.

  165. I’m a 1 wool quilt and several small hangings finished, three wool quilts started kinda quilter. No too sure about my embroidery skills beyond hand button hole and stem stitch. But I love the hand work. I do all my embroidery in Valdani thread, no matter the fabric.

  166. I’m a seasoned veteran stitcher but I’m always looking for new stitches to learn. Ideas and tips from fellow stitches keep things interesting. I love choosing colors for a project and the variety of thread colors available make it so much fun!

  167. I’m definitely a beginner. My sister in law and I like to split the sewing – she does the applique and embroidery and I do the piecing and quilting. It’s such a joy to create together.

  168. I consider myself an intermediate stitcher. I have worked on a few of your SBOW projects using wool and have completed a wool applique quilt top, but I know i have a lot more to learn. I do love the richness of Valdani threads.

  169. me…OLD veteran stitcher and quilter….love your new blue line… In my opinion Blue never went out of style.. Does the truck come with the fabric bundle???? LOL

  170. I’m old and have been sticking forever but wouldn’t consider myself a veteran either. I love the Valdani and normally use the 12 weight. I’ve been using 12 wt on all my Wool Subscription kits which I love too

  171. Hi Lisa, I consider myself a seasoned veteran though I still struggle with my points even when using your starch tip. During a plane ride I used a pair of toe nail clippers to cut my thread because they wouldn’t allow scissors on the plane! Hugs, Jakey

  172. I would love to have the little notebook to be able to remember everything! My list of threads is growing!

  173. I’m new to wool stitchery, so I ordered your Christmas wool box and picked up some wool and threads at your booth in Houston. Also bought your Wool, Needle and thread book, it is fantastic and feels like you are in the room gently guiding me. Cannot wait for the Christmas break to get my teeth into a project!

  174. Seasoned!! Have enough for the rest of my life to keep me busy!! Lol I’m sure I’ll have to add to my collection!!

  175. I’m an intermediate beginner I guess! I’ve done some wool stitchery, but have more patterns I hope to get to soon. I use mostly 12 weight thread and love it

  176. I am between beginner and intermediate but love a challenge! Valdani Is my go to thread and you can never have to much!

  177. I LOVE my Valdani threads. I‘I’ve been quilting and doing wool work for quite sometime. I thought I had a lot of Valdani balls, 18, til I took some classes and holy Toledo, some of you have like 50! I treasure them and use them sparingly. Some projects that are not as meaningful to me, I use DMC!

  178. I am a slightly experienced beginner when it comes to hand stitching. My collection of thread is quite small and I would love to add to it.

  179. I am an experienced “stitcher” but am always learning! I had the opportunity to take one of your classes and learned tons! Love your new book as it cements what I learned from you! have the thread book and while i didn’t think i would use it at first, I absolutely love it! Thanks for all you do! You are a gifted teacher!

  180. I’m a veteran stitcher and have taught classes and worked in a quilt shop too. I enjoyed every minute of that but now my husband retired and so did I. More time for stitching!!

  181. I love to embroider on wool, not a beginner but certainly not an expert, but the enjoyment and satisfaction it brings is at an expert level😊❣️

  182. I’m not a beginner nor would I say I’m a veteran….maybe still learning. My problem is that I hate to throw away any parts of the thread – the smallest part so I save them in a jar…..I feel like I have a problem. But they are so pretty!

  183. I have been stitching for a long time but have never taken one of your classes. I did purchase your new book and have learned many things from it and from doing the last few stitch alongs you have offered. I love these threads! I always look forward to seeing all the beautiful colors of threads that come with the kits and stitch alongs!

  184. I am an experienced stitcher. I starting appliqueing cotton on cotton until I bought a magazine that featured your quilt shop. I took a couple of classes with you and love stitching with the wool. I want to get your new book and learn all the new stitching that you have added to your wool projects. Those I will have to really practice to perfect.

  185. Lisa, Hi, I love all that you do and have several of your patterns, books, kits, etc.! I didn’t want to put this in a comment and in no way am judging…..but please be careful cutting anything with your teeth! I’m pretty sure if you asked your dentist they would advise not to do this as you could injure yourself. Sincerely, Marsha

  186. I am an experienced stitcher, but not perfect. My desire would be to become better while still enjoying my craft. My grandmother was who I believe I inherited the quilting dna from. She embroidered most of her quilts. When I started quilting I was not into embroidery at all. Now I love it. I think it can enhance any applique or wool project.

  187. I’m not a beginner as my grandmother taught me different embroidery stitches. She would be amazed at wool being used on purpose for projects since she used scraps of wool or cotton for mending & fancy stitches to hide the fact it was mending.

  188. I am not a beginner, more of an intermediate with the love of hand stitching. Love working with valdani threads!!

  189. I’m a beginner…… wool appliqué…… loving it! Love the wool and the threads, the gorgeous colors. I have this habit of licking the thread prior to threading a needle EVEN when using a needle threader! Merry Christmas!

  190. I have stitched by hand for a long time. I especially enjoy working with wool because it is easy to do without turning the edges. I don’t know a wide variety of stitches, though. Vadani is my favorite pear cotton, but my collection is quite small.

  191. I have done embroidery periodically for many years. I love wool and hand-stitching, and I would do a lot more if wool and thread were less expensive! Thank you for all the inspiration and beautiful designs : )

  192. Up until the SBOW, I was a wool gatherer! 😉 I had acquired a lot of patterns, a respectable amount of wool, and a few Valdani threads, but had never actually wool work. Now I’ve always got a wool project in progress. I had done an insane amount of embroidery in the past so I don’t know how to categorize myself…

  193. I have done a fair amount of wool work but I stick to the basic stitches – no crazy stitches for me yet. DSo I guess I am a beginner.

  194. I would say I’m an intermediate Wool stitcher. I am working on the SBOW somewhere in Time, and I have done other wool projects as well. Someday I would love to make a crazy mat with lots of really fun stitches. I find working on the wool embroidery so relaxing and enjoyable.

  195. Seasoned veteran on the buttonhole and whip stitch as well as the stem stitch. Not as experienced with all of the other fun stitches…..my Moon Garden is helping with that.

  196. I would have to say that I am an beginner on wool work, but have done a fair amount of embroidery work on cottons.

  197. I just found my way back to your Menasha shop after probably 5 or more years. I had seen something you posted maybe on Pinterest? And I just had to do the wool embroidery again. I was overwhelmed by the beautiful things in your shop and I’ve been happily stitching ever since. So far I’m only using embroidery floss. Hope to get to some better floss soon
    PS love your stitching book!

  198. I am sort of a newbie but then sort of not. I have done cross stitch with dmc floss, and i have done a little bit of hand quilting. I have started this past year doing some applique with the Moda Blockheads group block of the week. It has been a learning curve for sure. I also have been doing some EPP hexagons for 3 quilts. I have made over 15000 hexagons. I am starting to put them together. On the one hexagon quilt i really want to hand quilt it with the japanese technique with the bigger top stitching and don’t actually know what kind of thread i should use. But i do know i want it to be thicker than the dmc floss and need it to be stronger to quilt with. I am so fascinated with wool applique too. I am just starting to play with that. I need to learn more about threads and what kinds there are and how they are used and what the different weights mean and how to choose which weight.

  199. I have been doing wool applique for at least 10 years. I always love learning new stitches with the BOM and SBOW projects! I embroidered and cross stitched as a little girl using DMC floss, but use nothing but Valdani thread now and love it!

  200. I have been stitching for many years. I go back and forth from piecing quilt to hand and wool work. I love Valdani!

  201. I’ve done embroidery and cross stitch for years, but only started working with wool about a year ago, and I love it! I would say I’m probably an intermediate stitcher, but would love to learn more techniques and stitches.

  202. Intermediate stitcher, absolutely love the book ,”}My soul is Fed with my Wool, Needle and Thread.” Valdani is my favorite thread, it’s so easy to work with.

  203. I use Valdani for hand quilting. It’s the best thread, especially the variegated ones, absolutely gorgeous! I’ve been quilting with a hoop for years and years, but still don’t feel like an expert. Too many imperfections for that! Good thing that I love the ‘human touch’.:)

  204. I am a beginner and ready to learn! I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Valdani that I decided to start building my stash.

  205. I used to embroider when I was in high school, I’m 54 now and just starting to hand sew with wool. (Thanks Lisa) I’ve been a quilter for 29 years machine only.

  206. I am a beginner stitcher. Mainly, I rug hook but my friends have been tempting me with their gorgeous wool applique and punch needle projects. They tell me that Valdani is the way to go…and all those luscious colors…

  207. I am a cross stitcher, beginner crazy quilter, and started wool appliqué some time this past year with the Crazy seasons’ quilt blocks (not the exact name). It is now my favorite stitching pastime!

  208. I am a novice quilter. Making quilts for my grandchildren that they love is my greatest quilting accomplishment.

  209. Though I’m not a beginner stitcher I’ve done quite a few projects and couldn’t live without my Valdani thread! 😉

  210. I’ve done a few wool projects, so I’m probably an intermediate stitcher because I still have a lot to learn. I love the Valdani threads, so many beautiful colors. I have a lot of projects that I need thread to finish, I have to go make a list of what I need.

  211. I love working with flannel and wool. Wool is so forgiving. LOL and Valdani threads look so wonderful on it. I would say I am an experienced beginner. My greatest achievement to date was making a memory quilt from shirts of my parents. So many tears and love went into it. It is a cherished keepsake. Thanks

  212. I have some Valdani that I need to try. I am an experienced hand stitcher that mostly uses DMC, overdyed threads and a lot of variegated threads like Cosmo Seasons.

  213. Seasoned veteran quilter, but as a “Woolie” I’m a newbie. I’ve been admiring your wool creations and collecting your patterns. I’m now getting off the sidelines and plan to make some of the wool patterns. Making a project helps justify purchasing items for a new one – right? I’m one of those wives that sometimes sneak my purchases into the house when hubby is not home (like my 6 Valdani threads). Other times I walk right in and tell him “Look at this great fabric (or pattern) I bought!” Lol

  214. I have done several wool penny rugs but only with DMC. I recently tried Valdani and now want to covert my all my floss to Valdani!

  215. Veteran stitcher here. I started when I was quite young embroidering on my clothes in the 60’s. I love hand stitching and the fact that it’s quite portable is a plus! My mom was my teacher and very patient with me.

  216. I feel like a seasoned stitcher since I started out small making penny candle mats at first and worked my way up to making the Sweet Sixteen wool version bought at PG several years ago. I was so fortunate to win 3 first place ribbons one viewers choice and one Best of Show with this quilt at different area quilt shows. Not bragging, just very humbled and happy that others appreciated and liked my work.

  217. Im a seasoned stitcher, I love to do it while watching tv at night. Currently I’m still stitching on my Twlight Garden and fixing to start on the borders, I will complete it in 2020.

  218. I’m a somewhat seasoned stitcher. An intermediate piecer of cotton quilts. A brand new longarmer, trying to learn with a very seasoned (read: old) brain. Oh boy.
