Hello, I am Karen from southeast Ohio! I have been following Alyssa for a little over the year now! I am 40 y/o and have stitches on and off since I was 10. I do not have a favorite designer. I used to stitch a lot of Noah’s Ark, Christmas ornaments, birth and marriage announcements. I had always stitched from a kit. I have definitely moved out of my comfort zone! Thank you, Alyssa!
