Fairy Tales & French Knots (Erin)
Fave colours: Purple, blue, burgundy
Fave designers: So hard to pick! Dragon Dreams, Black Swan, Cross-Eyed Cricket, Just Nan, The Sweetheart Tree, Homespun Elegance, Shepherd’s Bush, Waxing Moon, San-Man Originals, JBW Designs … I’m sure there are more …
Fave styles of designs/stitching styles: I love magical/fantasy, but I think I may be reaching my saturation point there (yikes!). Elegant Renaissance/medieval/maiden designs often catch my eye. Celtic/Irish stuff is always a fave. I like some more rustic/antique designs, but can be kind of picky.
Fave thread types/brands: I like 6-stranded anything … dyed, regular, whatever. I’m just getting into the “silk scene”…
Fave fabrics: 28ct evenweaves – hand-dyeds are yummy!!
Any dislikes: Religious themes, cartoony-style designs, Stoney Creek, cutesy stuff. The large geometric-style samplers are pretty, but not something I’d stitch. I’m also not yet ready for very intricate band samplers. And my husband doesn’t want to have pieces with “unnecessary alphabets” on the walls … LOL.
Pets/children: One cat, one dog, one husband

Feather Stitching (Anne)
Fave colours: Blues – all shades, from pastels to brights (eg turquoise/cobalt), and every shade inbetween – followed closely behind by rich deep reds – but I also like other rich bright colours such as purples, greens etc – the only colours I’m not particularly keen on are pinks and apricots (especially pastels)
Fave designers: Too many to mention in full, but I like LHN/CCN, Teresa Wentzler, Mirabilia, Just Nan, The Sweetheart Tree, Lizzie*Kate, Prairie Schooler, Chatelaine, With My Needle, The Drawn Thread, Laura J Perin (canvaswork) and many more – and love French redwork and ‘smalls’ designs
Fave styles of designs/stitching styles: I have a pretty eclectic taste in stitching styles, and love most things!  I like different stitches (including hardanger), and always happy to receive (and stitch) something that isn’t just XS, love monochrome designs and Quakers, French redwork … well pretty much everything except those listed below
Any dislikes: I don’t enjoy stitching in pastels on the whole, but I like to see pastels stitched up – I’m not fond of the colour pink, and seriously dislike ‘historical’ old-fashioned samplers. I’m also not overly fond of alphabet samplers when it’s ‘just’ alphabets (they’re OK when included with another picture/design element), cutesy/country themes, religious themes or primitives but that’s about it – everything else is fair game! 😉
Fave thread types/brands: Love overdyeds/variegated threads, eg GAST, Crescent Colors, Carrie’s Threads, Needle Necessities – and adore stitching with Gloriana silks … I love most threads, but my fave ‘general’ floss is DMC
Fave fabrics: Prefer 32ct/36ct fabrics in either Lugana/linen (not a huge fan of Jobelan or Aida, but I’ve been known to stitch on both at times) – I enjoy stitching on most colours, except for pinks/apricots, and really like naturals/neutral colours
Pets/children: None yet
Birthday: 16 February 1966

Any small RAK’s that would be enjoyed: Love stationery items of any type (pens, notecards etc), tea/hot chocolate/coffee sachets are great, as are fridge magnets and postcards, and I have a sweet tooth as far as chocolate and sweeties are concerned (although dark chocolate is my least favourite).   Anything with a duck is always treasured!
Fave holidays: Christmas and Halloween (don’t celebrate Halloween as such, but just adore the stitched designs)
Holidays not celebrated or liked: Easter
