Embroider sustainably

Nest Embirdery is one of the few Canadian suppliers of UK-made beechwood Elbesee hoops. These embroidery hoops are FSC-certified, meaning that the lumber used for these hoops meets the gold standard of sustainability, environmentalism, and conservation. The Forest Stewardship Council plays a huge part in the conservation of wildlife and natural forests. The FSC also supports local economies, which means more jobs for those that live in and around these forests. Besides all that, they are my favourite hoop to use. They are a great quality for a reasonable price and hold fabric nice and snug while you stitch.

🎶 Baby Beluga in the deep blue sea... 🎶 Behold, I'm doing it! Here's my submission for February's #endangeredspecieschallenge, the Cook Inlet Beluga Whale. It also helps that Baby Beluga by Raffi is my son's favourite song to request at bedtime... so this song is so very special to me! 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️ If you, too, know all the words by heart! The Cook Inlet Beluga Whale population is estimated at 331 individuals. TOTAL. This population is genetically and geographically distinct from other beluga whales, found throughout arctic ands sub-arctic areas. Populations have dropped steadily over the last few decades and due to slow population growth and negative human impacts, this population is struggling to bounce back. Although it is protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and listed as Endangered under the Endangered Species Act, it continuously faces threats through pollution, climate change, and the over-use of resources. The Endangered Species Challenge is hosted by @huftgoldthreads and @evolutionary_thread .

Why is black so hard to photograph? This piece was inspired by the Aurora Borealis. We don’t often get to see it, being in the heart of the city… but when we do, it’s truly special. When my husband proposed to me, it was out at a dark sky reserve during a meteor shower. After I said yes, we turned around and saw the most vibrant auroras that I’ve seen in a long, long time. It was cold as heck, but so worth it. 🥰 This piece is available at the @albertacraftcouncil .

For the next featured charity, I decided to stick close to home. My family owns an acreage, and the amount of abandoned animals that they've come across is devastating. I've always had a very soft spot for animal rescues, and I'm so pleased to be able to support Zoe's Animal Rescue (@zoesanimalrescue ) - a shelterless rescue that focuses on strays and abandoned pets found outside of the city limits. This rescue also supports a Spray-Neuter-Return program to decrease the amount of strays, gives aid to pet owners in marginalized communities, and provides education to people across communities. I am so pleased to say that a portion of all profits will be donated to Zoe's until August 1st, 2024. Big thanks to YOU for helping me in this journey!

Yesterday, I submitted my donation to @forestandbird and it was my largest donation yet. Before my life as a mom, my heart belonged to these three beautiful souls - Newton, Marie Curie, and Rondo. Kea are the world’s only alpine parrot and are one of, if not THE, most intelligent birds in the world. They live only on the Southern Island of New Zealand. These silly, gorgeous creatures are at risk due to lead poisoning and human interaction. Do me a favour and look them up - they are truly fascinating. Thanks so much to you all for your support. I could not have accomplished this without you! Newton, Marie, Rondo - this one’s for you. ❤️
