I worked with The Coast for two years before starting my own small business. In May, they asked me to put my hobby talents of cross-stitching to work as a cover design. It was a creative challenge I had to accept. And the joy of seeing your work printed and distributed throughout the city truly never gets old.
To design the cover I had to first design the cross-stitch pattern and then do the cross-stitch work. It took many days of work but the end result was well worth the effort and time!
