www.threadmedley.com is up and running and deserving of a thorough investigation. Jan has designed a wonderful place to study and learn about needlepoint, particularly her methods of research and design. She is expert at adapting designs to needlepoint. She discusses her research and how she goes about adapting a design from, for instance, a Moroccan rug or tile to needlepoint. She is a wizard at choosing and designing stitches to make these designs her own. There will also be designs offered for purchase.
