Hello and Welcome!

Well, hi there! So glad you've stopped by!

My name is Gretchen, and I am the new team captain for the Etsy NeedleArts Team. We'll begin regular posting on Monday, February 7, but I wanted to kick off our official relaunch with a quick word of welcome. I really look forward to getting to know you and building a real community together.

You'll be learning more about us over the next few weeks (and more), but I thought I'd share with you our blog's posting schedule so you know what to expect.

On Mondays, Rebecca of melys baby will be sharing needlework patterns to kick off our week with fresh ideas. She'll be featuring free patterns as well as some for sale by our members or outside sources.

On Tuesdays, Katie of Mutant Angel will provide tips and tutorials specific to needlework to aid you in your stitchy endeavors through the week.

On Wednesdays, Bekah of beetastic will feature some work by our team members to help us get to know each other and inspire us.

On Thursdays, Amanda of Pilous Percilla will share Etsy treasuries that feature our team members. Start making those treasuries, members!

On Fridays, you'll have the opportunity to link to blog posts or flickr pages or elsewhere that you have your current projects on display. You'll also occasionally hear from me (june at noon) with team news and updates.

If you have any questions or suggestions or ideas for our team or our blog, please don't hesitate to contact me at EtsyNeedleArts [!at] gmail.com. I'm looking forward to building up a "family" with all of you!
