Our customer Cheryl W. from RI, has sent us several of her works, which you can see on this page.
Cheryl also wrote her instructions on how she embroidered the towels with lace designs:
"I got hooked on stitching on huck toweling and as you can see I have been using the cutwork lace designs. The cotton towel fabric has been purchased at my local Jo-Ann Fabric store. The side edges are already finished for you. You need to pre-wash and dry the fabric before stitching as there is shrinkage.
Instead of cutting away the fabric, I have been using Fiber Etch as it dissolves natural plant fibers and makes the satin edge very neat in appearance. You need to remember to stitch the design with polyester machine embroidery thread. Your cutwork lace designs are nice and fast to stitch out. Just add some trim to the bottom edge of the towel and you have a very pretty towel."
For this cutwork table runner Cheryl used the design Rose Lace III and a design from Lace Set VII.
These embroidered portraits of Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh have
contributed to Cheryl's large Gone with the Wind collection.

After Cheryl obtained a mat kit she became able to frame her embroideries herself. Here are some more of her works in frames:
