I’m originally from Los Angeles. I spent 27 years there before my wife and I left to travel the country and eventually end up in Colorado. When we decided to stick around after house sitting this summer, it was warm. Not ever having to live in the snow made this winter a not so easy adjustment. And my wife who hates the cold is convinced that I tricked her into staying in CO. But spring is finally around the corner and it is a welcome change.
It’s been a busy week here at NSAD. We have a lot of changes going on behind the scenes that I think you’ll really love. We’re completely redesigning the site from the ground up and adding a bunch of features that will make it easier to use. So look for more info on that in the coming weeks.
Oh! By the way, we want to know what you think of our new (hopefully) humorous written tutorial introductions. Click here to answer our quick Facebook survey!

Answering Your Requests
As you may know, we have a Request a Stitch form on our site that allows you to submit your ideas for future tutorials. Well after amassing a large backlog of stitches, we’re finally getting back on schedule for answering your questions!
In fact most of last week’s stitches came from our audience! So thank you to those of you who have patiently waited to have your question answered and if you’re interested in suggesting a future tutorial feel free to submit your idea by clicking here.
Just a reminder, we will do our best to answer every request, but submitting a request does not necessarily mean we will do a video on that topic.
