Hi, I’m Mary Ann – a.k.a. The Nacient Needle. I love to do needle work and sew in various forms. I really, really love hand embroidery, tapestry, crewel work and the like. Not very practical, but it is so beautiful and creative. Relaxing and fun to do – each piece that you make really feels like its uniquely “you”. I do embroidery workshops throughout the Hudson Valley in historical homesteads, museums and libraries.
I also teach sewing and hold adult classes several times a year and conduct summer sewing camps for kids in July and August. I love to make historical costumes for the many re-enactments that are popular in our Historic Hudson Valley. I sell costumes as well.
And finally, I do upholstery work for local Hudson Valley customers and make slip covers for many types of furniture which are sold all over the country.
