I am trying to find someone and think I will use the power of the internet. As my usual detective work hasn't gotten me the answer. And hey - the story is kinda funny too.
A few weeks ago I got a business call from my health insurance company needing to validate some info on my business medical insurance. As I went to my office to get the info for the administrator, the woman took the opportunity to ask me a question sheepishly. "Is your business named Thistle Threads". "Yes", I responded, thinking she was validating the company name. "Like Tricia Wilson Nguyen - seen in Just Cross Stitch?"
"OMG this is like a celebrity moment" she said. I was shocked and then we laughed, seems her job in high school was working for 3 Stitches in Texas and now in addition to her day job, she did needlework finishing and had finished many a piece of embroidery I had taught others. We quickly forgot the task at hand and started talking needlework.
I have been looking for another finisher who is familiar with my work to suggest when people contact me. Someone did today and I looked for the info I had written down with her name and instagram handle. I couldn't find it and had tried the instagram handle before to no luck (likely a spelling issue). It was a rhyme with Buckaroo Bonazi - when she said it, we found another thing in common (I also loved that cult classic and we talked about Peter Weller the actor for a bit).
So now - if you know how to get ahold her - let me know! Or if you have seen her instagram - send it to me!!
