Welcome to My Store and My First Blog Post!
Happy Friday Friends!
I researched heavily to figure out how to write a blog… so here it goes!
For those who don’t know me, my name is Terri Pittman, Owner of For The Stitcher’s Soul. I live in Glenmont, NY. My business was born out of a love of needle arts and the desire to share that love with others. I had been on a hiatus from my stitching for many years because life kinda got in the way—you know the story—work ( I have been in nursing for almost 40 years) , marriage ( for 36 years) , kids( 2 a girl and a boy—now Grown-Up and with families of their own) etc… Below is a picture of my husband and I with our 2 Grandchildren--Maddox and Abby.
But about 3 years ago I returned to my art. Just one problem… I had no one to share it with. I searched online for groups and found Stitchmaynia.. made a post looking for others in my area and BOOM.. there it is! I found this wonderful network of people which continues to grow daily. I started inviting people to my house to stitch with me. During the last 3 years, we have come to the conclusion that we needed a shop around our area. Our nearest is 1.5 hours South in Hyde Park. The others range from 2-2.5 hours away. I have been working my way toward this by arranging retreats which I started 2 years ago and now adding an online store and vending at retreats with the plan to open the brick and mortar in the future.
Please join me on this journey.. Subscribe to my newsletter and my site on the Home page. I will be posting blogs on how to do different things, about new items in the shop, and about upcoming retreats and workshops. Share your stories with me in the comments below! Tell me what you like!
Until next time.. Stay safe! Terri
