The Loudoun Sampler Guild has been lucky to have amazing, talented members who have shared their work with us. Betsy Morgan was one of the original members the LSG, and we’ve often gotten a “first look” at her wonderful projects. Over the years, members have stitched her Toy Chest Etui, Virgin Queen’s Stitching Wallet and others. Her etui called “This One’s For Betty” was even named for our Guild founder, the late Betty Flemming. The one in the photo below is The Swan’s Bower Etui.
So we were delighted to hear that Betsy has partnered with Inspirations to publish a gorgeous, full-color, softback book of eight projects, which include 36 accessories. The book contains over 90 cross stitch charts using 36 different counted thread techniques. If you have seen any of Betsy’s projects, you know that the projects are creative; the colors are lovely; and — importantly — the instruction are easy to follow! Congratulations to Betsy for this capstone to her designing career.
