Hi! I am Connie Barwick and I will be taking over as the Cross Stitch editor here at Craft Gossip. I am really excited to be a “Gossip Girl” now – sorry for the lame joke, but that’s what I keep telling my friends.

You may also know me from my work at About.com Cross Stitch or my own site Connie Gee’s Designs. I am also the Social Media Director for Kooler Design Studio.

I have been cross-stitching since I could hold a needle. I started with stamped projects and moved into counted cross stitch as it gained popularity in the 1980′s. Cross stitch is a constant in my life, no matter the season or what’s trendy at the time. Over the years I have done all sorts of counted thread and canvas work.

I look forward to sharing my love of stitching with you and want you to help me out too! Send in your links today. Let me know about your favorite project, blog, etsy shop – whatever you think should be featured here.

    I know you from About.com but didn’t know you did your own designs so I just went to have a look. Your dog is adorable! When I was 2 yrs old, my grandparents had a dog named Girlie. I don’t really remember her but I know she was a sweetheart and probably why I love dogs so much today.

    Craft Gossip already has cross stitch designs included in most of their daily e-mails, so , I guess this means that you, Connie, will be the new “manager” of the cross stitching portion of Craft Gossip. I hope you will take the necessary time to find the great charts available through a variety of websites.
