Cross Stitch Celebrities

By January 25, 2010

Follow me on:

In a recent facebook post, one of the "fans" of the Cross Stitch page was "chatting" back and forth with me about one of my Valentine projects and she said she found it exciting because, according to her, "In my house you are a regular celeb." I tease with my husband all the time that he is living with a Cross Stitch "cewebrity" and he just rolls his eyes. Of course, I did get recognized in Sam's Club recently, but it was because I post so much on the fan page for the local weightloss program I participate in!

I am certainly NOT a celebrity of any sorts, but I sure get excited when I have contact with Cross Stitch celebrities like Donna Kooler, Mr. X Stitch, and so many more. I haven't had the opportunity to meet a celebrity like them in person, but I have hopes. What about you? Have you ever met a stitching celebrity? Share your story below in the comment section and then vote in the poll and let us know.

I got so excited when I met Marilyn at the Stoney Creek both at the cross stitch show that was in Las Vegas a few years ago. I was so excited, so I decided to start a conversation about an article of hers that I had read. I am sure I must have sounded like an idiot, I was trying to be cool, but it is a good think I don’t have the opportunity to meet Brad Pitt or George Clooney.

I would be freaking out if I got to meet Marilyn! When I am star-struck, my brain freezes up and I end up babbling.

I felt that way when I met Teresa Wentzler, and also Jennifer Aikman-Smith. Met both at classes at the Toronto Creative Festival.
