Tawas Point Lighthouse

Michigan has more lighthouses than any other state, each with a unique appearance and story behind them. Tawas Point Lighthouse, first lit in 1877, is one of the Michigan lighthouses with a long history of guiding sailors and capturing imaginations. Because of its popularity and picturesque form, it is much-photographed and has been the subject of needlepoint illustrations, too. And thanks to Jill, it is now a magnificent embroidery design! Add to pillow covers, quilts, and wall hangings for an eye-catching nautical theme.

Friesian Horses

Embroiderers love to stitch the graceful lines and strong features of horses onto towels, jacket backs, pillow covers, quilts, and towels. Barb is a fan of Friesian horses, a horse breed originating in Friesland, Netherlands. Robust, graceful, and nimble for their size, Friesians have thick manes and tails that are often wavy, as well as "feathers" - long, silky hair on the lower legs that is left untrimmed. Stitch these storied, beautiful horses in a sketched medley and in silhouette for a classic and distinctive embellishment.
