I was beside myself, not sure what to do I tucked it away in my WIP box. I went out to Just Cross Stitch in Limerick (now moved to Lederache, PA) and was introduced to Veronica Buckwalter. Ronnie is a seamstress and has finished for Carolyn's shop for years. I told her about my banner and she asked me to bring it in the following week.
The next week Ronnie assured me that although the finishing was poor (she was being EXTREMELY kind) she would be able to finx it and for me not to worry. A few weeks later I couldn't believe my eyes! It is amazing how FABULOUS the banner looks now. I was so excited to get it back I took it to my next EGA meeting (Shout out Philadelphia Area EGA Chapter) with Emma in tow.
I'm not sure what I was so worried about. I had seen Ronnie's work, she is AMAZING! Since then Ronnie has finished quite a few of my pieces (personally and professionally) and when we decided to launch the SYHO Campaign I knew exactly who to call. Ronnie will be providing the finishing instructions for the SYHO Designer Encyclopedia. If you are ever in need of a finisher or not sure what to with your finished piece, this is the lady to call!
