Melissa Shirley Stitch Guides

Melissa Shirley makes it easy to see if a stitch guide is available for her canvases by listing them all on her website.  There is a brand new section for guides from shops, as well as a brief bio of many of the folks who write stitch guides for Melissa Shirley Designs. (To read the bios, click on the thumbnail photos, not the name under them.)  If you have a Facebook account, Melissa often adds new guide photos to her Melissa Shirley Designs FB page before they make it to her website.

Melissa Shirley also has photo albums for her stitch guides on her Melissa Shirley Designs Facebook page.

Please note that there are free stitch guides for her Shimmery Snowy Angel and the Yellow Apple Purse on this page.

Melissa Shirley herself explains how she stitched her Brown Tiger Butterfly purse (1363-A for 18 count and 1363-2A for 13 count) on my blog.  Here's the direct link.

Many of the stitch guide writers or shops listed above have websites. I'll write separate articles about each as time permits.

Needle Orts (owned by Debbie Bowers and visited often by Dennis Masellis) is in Florida.  Here's the website.
