New Logo

As you may have noticed, we have a brandy new logo. Iwanted to do something a bit more simple and graphic. I worked with "The Logo Company" - an online group that creates logos. Check them out at:

I found their website and process really simple and very well priced. I filled out a form that asked a ton of questions about my business concept and design preferences. They sent me 5 logo concepts, from which I picked 1 to revise and finalize. The process was quick and in the end I received my logo in all of the formats I would need to us on the web and in print media.

I am currently working on another logo with them. The new logo is for a future Robben's Nest Stitchery venture......more details to follow!

Fresh New Start

I have been away from the blog for quite some time...working in my business instead of on it. After following so many lovely blogs over the last year, I have come to the realization that blogging will be a great way to rediscover my love for what I do as well as develop new ideas for the future. I have tons of ideas percolating away and cannot wait to share them with you! So...let's get started!

Grasshopper Up High

We are back from the beach - we went to Chincoteague Island and it was lovely, what a great week. I screwed up my courage and climbed to the top of the Assateague Light House. Over 175 rickety steps, I almost gave up. Fortunately, my husband Matt was great and kept prodding me on to make it to the top. The view was very worth it! While I was up there, I took a great photo of a grasshopper sitting on the railing.

Pretty neat!

What We're Up To

This month we embroidered a new tablecloth for the Rochester Celiac Support Group. The tablecloth design was almost 42" across and over 110,000 stitches!! Our daughter, Emily, has Celiac. Here is what the president of RCSG, Cassandra Coffey, had to say:

"The Rochester Celiac Support Group offers guidance for those following a gluten-free diet and works to increase awareness about celiac disease and gluten sensitivity in the Rochester community. Last year Robben's Nest Stitchery made beautifully embroidered aprons for our group. They've been great in helping to identify our group and its volunteers at community events and meetings. We also recently had Robben's Nest Stitchery make an embroidered tablecloth for the group. It was a BIG project, but Pati didn't hesitate to take it on, and we are thrilled with the results! With both of our projects, Pati provided her expertise and creative talents in helping to choose layout, fonts, and colors, and she was able to work within our short timeline. We couldn't have asked for more! Thanks Pati!"

The RCSG has been great to work with and is a great organization. Find them on the web for more information!
