Finally got around to trying our hands at embroidery. The two photos on top shows our first completed sampler. Might just try what fiber artist Renee Millette from Chicago has started, “A Stitch A Day”. Probably wouldn’t do it for a year but perhaps for 100 days. Renee’s specialty is embroidery primarily cross stitch. You can see more of her work on Tumblr and Facebook. A few of her designs can be purchased on her Etsy shop, Cabbage Stitches.

Tokyo Pear is a letterpress studio and shop that got its start in Seattle, Washington and then relocated to Japan in 2007. The brand is owned by Eriko and Darren who decided to introduce independent letterpress to Japan. Their graphics are minimal and show a definite folk art influence. You can follow them on their website and purchase a few of their items on Etsy.
