A Special Welcome…
24th January 2020
As the present owners of Inspirations Studios, we wanted to take a moment to personally welcome everyone to 2020 – a brand new decade is upon us and what better time to thank you all for being a part of the Inspirations family, no matter where in the world you may live.
With all the continual changes, uncertainty, and natural disasters in the world today (especially the fires here in our home country of Australia) there has never been a better time to lean into the wonder of needlework for comfort and peace.
There is nothing more meditative than the rhythm and hum of stitching. It’s a special place we can all go to where everything in the world feels right again.
It’s for these reasons we’re seeing and hearing how needlework is thriving and advancing in new and innovative ways throughout generations and communities the world over, almost like a hidden treasure that is being rediscovered.
If you are new to needlework or to the Inspirations family – welcome! We’re so glad you found where you belong.
Regardless of how far along you are in your needlework journey, we want to encourage and support you to continually discover all that stitching has to offer. Whether it’s learning new techniques, trying your hand at different threads or fabrics or joining a local stitch and chat group, the world of needlework is so rich and diverse there really is something for everyone, anywhere in the world.
We all belong to a huge global stitching tribe where everyone is passionate and obsessed with their needle and thread.
In 2020 the team at Inspirations wants to help everyone connect to their needlework in a richer and deeper way than ever before. For our part, we’ll continue to publish and distribute more of the world’s most beautiful needlework to inspire and admire, and for your part… we’re asking you to share with us your story and show our tribe the fruit of your hands.
The best part about our job here at Inspirations is reading your emails and marvelling at the photos showcasing your work.
One of the things we consistently hear from the Inspirations Community is ‘I’m not sure my stitching is good enough to be included in the newsletter’ but here’s what you need to know – your stitching, your story, your photos are just what someone needs to encourage them, to motivate them, to show that they are not alone and we’re all in this together.
Inspirations is not about perfection – it’s about inspiration! So, share your story, share your work and together let’s inspire a whole generation of stitchers in 2020 and beyond.
We look forward to hearing from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
