A Note From the Editor

Summer is in full swing here in Indiana, and we're enjoying the wonderful sunny days filled with lots of fun activities. Our days are kept extra busy with yard work, tending the garden, long bike rides, watching baseball and softball games, and spending as much time as possible on the water. Of course, my summer wouldn't be complete without attending a few smalltown festivals to enjoy shopping the farmer's markets, browsing art displays and sampling tasty treats from the local ice cream shop.

As you browse the collection of eye-catching designs in this issue, you'll see that they are all about summer! From the charming Summer's Day farm scene, to the beautiful Butterfly pillow, the amazing Setting Sail decor piece and our two exciting stitchalong samplers, there are perfect projects waiting for you to put needle and floss to fabric during the long, sunny days of summer.

As always, we would love to see pictures of your latest works-in-progress, so be sure to tag us at our Facebook and Instagram pages. We will look forward to seeing the projects that you're working on this summer!

Until next issue, friends,

Tanya Fox, editor


Tanya Fox has served as editor of various Annie's publications since 2006.

She said, "I have enjoyed stitching and creating art of all kinds since very early in life. My earliest creative memory is of sewing doll clothes with my mom and grandmother. I learned embroidery and cross-stitch from my great grandmother in my early teens starting with simple stamped designs and progressing to projects on stitched on Aida and linen. I truly love that whether I'm working with fabric and floss, yarn or paper, there's always something new to learn. Part of what makes stitching so enjoyable is sharing what I know and learning from others."

Tanya is a native of Indiana, and she and her husband, Jim, have six children.
