One of the most frequently asked questions in the needlework community…
Head on over to YouTube & type in floss tube in the search function – a catalog of hundreds (are we thousands yet?) of stitchers have created channels where we talk, show, share, explain, laugh & support one another in our stitching adventures!
Here are quick links to my FlossTube videos. I enjoy filming one about once or twice a month to show you vintage stitches, current projects, New Releases & to introduce you to a special guest every once in awhile!
