COPYRIGHT 2018-2019 THERESA VENETTE, THE KITTENSTITCHER

Who is KittenStitcher?

I am a mother, a wife, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a crazy cat lady and a stitcher. And I design and reproduce samplers.

I started stitching when I was 10, and when I was 27, I opened an online store called "Shakespeare's Peddler." Eventually that home business went into three different retail locations (two in North Dakota, one in Mississippi).

 

I started designing with my friend Sue for Raise the Roof Designs in 2003.

 

And several years later I bought my first real antique sampler. I reproduce antique samplers in my collection, but I also design samplers to look like "modern antiques."

Because I am a stitcher, I look to create charts that are fun to stitch: interesting motifs, pretty colors, and not too much repetition. I love samplers that are a little wonky, a little unusual, and full of personality.

I love to share what I know with fellow stitchers, and I love to learn what they teach me. Make sure to look for me on YouTube to stay current on what I'm designing, what's going on in my life, and "what I'm all into."

Shops can order my designs through Hoffman Distributing and Yarn Tree or buy direct from me.

Thank you for your support. And happy stitching, sweetie! - T
