About Me

 

 

Hello and welcome!  If you are reading this, then chances are that you share my passion of cross stitching and I am so glad you are here! If you don’t cross stitch, just maybe I might inspire you to want to start! It’s a great stress relief and make the best personalized gifts! For me, it isn’t just a hobby, it’s an ADDICTION! LOL  However, I can think of much worse addictions to have!

My name is Fae Kuhn.  I have 3 wonderful sons, ages 7, 18, and 21.  My two oldest are both serving in the US military, one Sailor and one Marine.  They followed in the footsteps of myself and their father as we were both in the Navy.  I could not be any more proud of them.  I work as a Veterans Employment Rep where my job is to encourage employer to hire veterans. Supporting veterans and the military is definitely my #1 passion

Please see more about who I am and what I do to help make a difference using my passion of cross stitch by reading My Story.  My mission in life is to help as many people as I can in whatever way I can.  I hope that My Story and those of others I will be featuring will inspire you and that you will join us in making a difference!

Please take your time and browse around my site as there are lots of goodies and information. I make handmade customized items for cross stitching such as tote bags (that can be personalized with a favorite photo of a pet, child, grandchild..pretty much any picture you want), project bags, accessory bags, needleminders, and scissor fobs which you can find more information about under the Fae’s Crafty Creations tab.

If you are interested in any of those items, please visit and join my Facebook Group Fae’s Crafty Creations and I can help you there with any needs you may have for cross stitching accessories. If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please email me at fae@luvcrosstitch.com.

All the best,

Fae Kuhn

      Jeanette,

      Thank you! And please tell your son I said thank you for his service! That is my next endeavor…I want to start a site that is related to what I do as a job…and that is to help veterans. My main focus being on trying to connect with veterans as they get out of the service and trying to transition into the civilian world. There is not enough help given to them there. I saw a picture the other day on a veteran website I belong to that said “We train them how to go to war, but we don’t train them how to come home.” That is the absolute truth and I hate it! Ok..off that soap box..for now..lol. But thank you for your support in this latest endeavor of mine and I look forward to bringing everyone lots of good stuff! 🙂

    Great site Fae. Just one question, will you be posting to Europe and if so have you any idea of how much postage may be and will we have to pay tax on the items? I know that if HAED designs post it can be quite expensive tax wise here in Europe.

    Reply
    1. Fae (Post author)

      Jennifer,

      Yes, I can post to Europe and because my stuff is not very heavy, I can do it pretty reasonably priced. I will send you a message regarding the question about tax.

      Some will be on members of the Cross Stitch Club group too. I love to write so this is fun to write and entertain with the writing. It’s a lot of work, but it’s so worth it! 🙂
