Hi – I am Dawn Peschke and I would like to Thank You for stopping by DP Stitchin’. I love to stitch and hope to share my excitement with you.
I started this blog so that I could share some of the cool things I have learned about embroidery and connect with others who share my love for this work – no matter where in the world they are. I know I am not the only one out there who is crazy about stitchin’, so introduce yourselves – I would love to get to know you.
I took a degree in Studio Art with most of my work being done in the areas of Teaching & Textiles, but I also have a strong interest in Art History. I think it is important to understand the role that embroidery in all its various forms, has played throughout history. The work of our sister stitchers* becomes a resource for our own work and connects us to our stitchin’ roots while acting as a window into their worlds.
So, join me on my journey . . . the adventure begins!
*yes, I know there have been guys involved at times, but we both know that stitchin’ is still mostly a gal thing, which is too bad. Gonna have to do somethin’ about that!
