When I was twelve I learned how to cross stitch from my mom. I stuck with it for a bit, but as most young men do, I quickly found other interests. It wasn’t until I was out of college that I heard the needle calling to me again. Since then, I have been on and off at times, but I have not been able to put it down for good. I have had many hobbies, but cross stitching has now become more than just a hobby for me. It has become a passion and an art.
