Meet Tara-Lynn Devey, the lady stitching everything you see from This Stitch Is Bananas! She was born and raised in Hardisty, AB and is now married and raising her kids here as well. She's always loved art and getting crafty but found her niche in creating custom cross-stitch family portraits. She started Summer 2019 just making some for herself and family members. She got a lot of interest and positive feedback when she shared her work on social media. Once she took her first order, she hasn't been without orders since, which she's extremely grateful for! She's a stay at home mom of 2 toddlers so most of her stitching is done after 7 p.m. once the kids are tucked in or during nap time. She works with her customers to get an idea of what they're wanting and adds as much detail as she can! She offers the choice of a hoop or made to frame and antique white or pure white fabric. Florals, greenery and writing are always a fun way to make anyone's personalized family cross stitch extra special. She's done many families, weddings, teacher gifts, and a couple of buildings, she's up for any challenge! She loves creating fun & unique little stitched version of each family. Aside from families, she keeps her creativity flowing by working on anything from dinosaur fossils to felt woodland animals. She has lots of exciting projects ahead.
