We love our customers! We know you will as well. Let's meet one of them now.
Meet Merrily Sparling
What is your craft of choice? I’m a quilter and knitter; I embroider and have made rugs occasionally.
How long have you been doing this? I started knitting about 60+ years ago. (The shawl I’m wearing is from a yarn kit from StitchCraft.)
Quilting began after visiting a quilt shop in Maine about 2006 and saw a beautiful block of the month quilt. I was hooked.
I also love to participate in Ryan’s Cases for Smiles. No matter what part of the process I do, I feel like I’m contributing to helping kids get thru a rough time.
I also make bears for hospice families thru Vitas in southeastern Florida. Occasionally they are made from clothes of a loved one.
Currently I’m in charge of organizing a Friendship Quilt for one of my Maine quilting sisters.
What is your favorite notion? My newest favorite notion is “The Knit Kit” which includes a tape measure, a cable needle, a crochet hook, a thread cutter, folding scissors, stitch markers, darning needle, Row Counter, point protectors, and needle gauge! All in one very portable neat case!
Finish this sentence: #ImSewStitchCraft because I LOVE the tropical fabrics I find a Stitch craft.
