Hi, I'm Kelly! I love nordic skiing, podcasts, searching for sea glass on the coast of Maine, all things Vermont, and needlepoint. I work part-time in Public Health at the community level here in Vermont; it's the perfect balance to entrepreneurship! My partner and I are adjusting to life with our Vizsla puppy, Juno, and cannot wait for outdoor adventures with her.
I began stitching in 2018 after drooling over canvases for too long when a crafty auntie gifted me her fiber stash. Shortly thereafter, I bought my first canvas at In Stitches in Dorset, Vermont and Maria Timmerman, the owner, taught me how to stitch. I immediately wanted to paint a canvas and did so a few months later.
What's in a name? Alice was my grandmother's best friend who was "Auntie Alice" to my mom. My middle name comes from her. She needlepointed and cross-stitched. My mom recently gave me a rusty tin of in-progress embroidery that belonged to her and I played around with when I was little. Vintage! Blue was my trail name on the Appalachian Trail in 2012. I think of Blue as my adventurous, free-spirited alter ego/other half. The combination of the two felt fitting.
