An Evening with Allison Aller

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

I love my job – especially when I have the opportunity to hang out with fun, creative needle artists like Allison Aller, one of the winners of DMC’s Needlework Memories Contest!

While the offices for DMC USA are located in New Jersey, there are several of us who live remotely, and it was such a wonderful surprise to learn that Allison lives near me on the opposite side of the country.

After Allison returned from a trip after taping class for Craftsy (check her blog for the air dates!), we were able to get together for dinner at a local bistro in our area. We had a great time chatting about needlework.

Just before dinner I presented Allison with a special tote filled with DMC Needlework Supplies, as well as a memento of her upcoming trip to Paris. It was so much fun to hang out with someone who loves needlework as much as I do!

Allison will be taking her sister Mary along on the trip. Her winning entry, titled The Running Stitch is shown here.

The winning entries can now be seen on our web site, including the winning entry from Louise Doney of Pennsylvania and Florida, and information on the winning shop, Threads Needlework run by Patti Chambers.

We hope they all have a terrific time in France!
