Michelle Ink Needlework Designs
by michelle d arsenault

...was originally born out of a quest for designs not available. There were none that seemed quite right for the need, so I proceeded to draw my own! A U of M graduate with a BS in Nursing, I chose to open a needlework store "when I grew up" and Stitching Pretty Ltd was opened in 1989. Being surrounded by the fabrics, threads, colors and textures i was able to feed and grow a talent for color, design, fabric, my pen and graph paper and have not been able to stop since. My first design was published in the early 90's. The retail store has since been retired, and I have retired after 30 years as an ER nurse. Now, I have discovered, and branched out into teaching, silver needleminders (as well as silver jewelry) from precious metal clay fine silver, so much fun to accent your stitching niche!
