I was very honored to be asked to participate in the SYHO campaign. Hopefully, this campaign will find new stitchers and instill in them *our* love of this needleart, support our wonderful needlework shops, and promote awareness of heart disease and how to avoid it.
Unknowingly, Loose Thread Stitchers chose someone who has a very important reason for promoting heart health. At the age of 47, my husband, Lehmer, had heart bypass surgery. At 23, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure (200/110). We have both greatly benefited from modern medicine and all it can do for you.
