Profile - Butterfly StitchesConnie Ewbank owned a quilt and cross stitch shop (Quilt N Stitch) in St Louis MO for 12 years. She taught lots of classes, many of which were her own designs, and she began to publish these designs in pattern and book form. She also purchased a separate counted cross stitch shop and designed and taught in that area of needlework, too.
In early fall 2004 she closed both shops and moved to the Baton Rouge area. She continued to teach and design patterns for both quilting and counted cross stitch. Since there is a quilt shop in Louisiana named Quilt N Stitch, and since she had already been publishing cross stitch patterns under the name Butterfly Stitches, she decided to use that name for all her cross stitch and quilting patterns.
She has taught at both local and regional EGA meetings, local ANG meetings, and is currently a GSQA (Gulf States Quilting Association) circuit teacher. She have also taught for 7 years at the National Counted Cross Stitch show at Rockome Gardens.
