Back between 2002 and 2004 when I was still collecting and stitching patterns, I came across Vermillion Stitchery which released a monthly freebie. From Birthstone Fairies, Cats and Dogs, Bears, Flowerbears, Holiday Animals, International Bears (most of which I cannot open anymore for some reason). She started selling the patterns also as machine embroidery patterns. She has some medieval patterns of jousting, knights, and ladies. I recently went to the website and discovered it has disappeared.
My search took me to Facebook where I discovered she recently passed away (in May). Her children are still trying to figure out how to distribute her patterns. Here are some of her patterns that I liked. She was pretty prolific, so I’m not going to even attempt to make a comprehensive listing!
