If you are a member of the Hand Embroidery Network you already know my decision to keep the community running! When I made the decision to close it in January I didn't realise how hard that would be and when the 1st March arrived and it was time to take down the network I couldn't do it. Over the six years the community had been running so many wonderful embroiderers had taken the time to share their work and passion for embroidery and so many others had been inspired to pick up a needle for the first time! For that reason I couldn't close it and lose such a wonderful resource!
So I have decided to keep the HEN alive and continue to provide a community where people young and old, experienced and novice can be inspired and find like minded people to build friendships with through their love of hand embroidery.
A big thank you to all HEN members for their support!
