TW Projects

Teresa Wentzler is my favourite cross stitch designer. I’m sad that she has retired from designing, but I rejoice in the fact that she was a very prolific designer. She has published approximately 250 different designs, ranging in style from epic fantasy dragons, to delicate Victorian ladies, all the way to gorgeous samplers. A stitcher that isn’t afraid of 1/4 stitches, blended needles and confetti stitching is sure to find a TW design they will love.

I’ve been lucky enough to collect or borrow every single publicly available design that Teresa Wentzler has released. To the best of my knowledge, I am only missing a couple of designs that were only available to students who took classes with her at the Creativ Festival (formerly the Creative Sewing and Needlework Festival) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I’d like to say thank you to Christine of Christine’s Journal for lending me the last three magazines I needed and the bargello design, and Missy Ann of Deep Inside Missy for lending You Were Hatched so I could stitch it for my son’s room.

    Heya 🙂
    Couple of us on the Teresa Wentzler FB group decided to have a TW Tinies SAL next year. I immediately remembered your project and thought you might be interested in taking part.

  5. Christine says:

    Here is a link to my finished and framed Cutwork Compass Rose:

    And my finished Bargello Basics:

    I’ve set both of those to be public, so everyone should be able to see them.
