At stitch night this past Wednesday Samantha surprised me with the leaflets of her first two published designs.  I was so excited for her.  She is an avid and talented cross stitcher and although she has designed for her personal use for many years, these are the first she has published.
Samantha has been a regular in the Gitta's community since she was a teenager.  Her and her Mom first came into the shop in the mid 1990's, and even with 2 young children she rarely misses Stitch Night.

 Inspired by my 15 sided biscornu, her first 2 published designs each have 15 seasonal specific motifs that can either be stitched as a sampler or finished into a 15 sided biscornu.  They are both adorable and a Fall and Summer version are soon to follow.

Having attended every Gitta's Getaway Retreat with her mom, Samantha has enjoyed meeting other stitchers and sharing her love of stitching.  For this year's Retreat  she has kitted her first design, "Winter Sampler", to make it her gift to everyone attending Gitta's Getaway Retreat.

Gitta's is proud to be the first shop to carry Samantha's designs.  Her patterns are now available for sale in the shop and through our website    Drop by to see her stitched models, and on April 14th and 15th, 2012 you can see them on display in Gitta's booth at the NeedleWorkers MarketPlace
