Hand embroidery has seen a resurgence in recent years, but it’s different from the cross-stitch patterns and samplers of yesteryear: Embroidery is more personal, edgier and sillier. “While an embroidery instructor in the 1950s might have insisted that your cloth be knot-free, I encourage you to do what it takes to get going and to think of knots as an opportunity to add texture to even the front side of your fabric,” Ringquist says in her book.

This year marks 25 years of care and friendship for The Cancer Survivors Support Group. Sharon Farrell, right, started the group in 1990 with her friend Marilyn Davis who died in 1993. Jean Geesey, left, and Karen Bowling (not pictured) also now help run the group.
