Happy Valentine’s Day
11th February 2022
It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and we wanted to wish all our readers a happy day filled with all the love that each of you deserve.
Heart’s Desire by Prue Carvell in Inspirations issue #47
Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that is celebrated more by some than others, but we can all appreciate the sentiment it brings.
Valentine’s Day isn’t just for romance, it is also a day where you can show your love to anyone and anything that fills your heart.
We asked around for a few ideas for the best ways embroiderers could celebrate Valentine’s Day. Some suggestions were:
- Spend the day with your favourite project or favourite technique – one that you love above all others. Feel the love each and every stitch.
- Arrange to spend a few hours with a beloved friend or family member. Extra hearts if that person is also an embroiderer! That way you can enjoy each other’s company and some stitching!
- Start a special Valentine’s Day project. It doesn’t have to be a traditional heart. It could be anything that represents love for you.
- Make a stitched Valentine’s Card and send it to someone to tell them how much you care. You don’t have to sign it if you want to remain anonymous…

If anyone else has any ideas of how they like to celebrate Valentine’s Day, we’d love to hear them – you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re probably going to spend a bit of time curled up with our favourite magazine, a cup of tea to hand and our current project sitting in a basket next to us waiting for us to continue stitching. That is the definition of true love!
