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 college 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, i still work as an ER nurse on the weekends and the occasional midnight hour will find my light still on, pen in hand and a new thought emerge on the graph paper to be completed with needle and thread by daylight. i am the current distributor for stitching pretty presents and hope you enjoy our offerings in our new home here on the world wide web !
