Hello World!

Rita and Martha Pullen

Welcome to my world of stitching.  Hopefully you will find some tips, tricks, and designs of interest and will visit often to see what’s new with Ritohn Enterprises.  I’m an educator and would be happy to consider traveling to your area to teach my specialties.  I have over 50 years of experience in the field of sewing, design, and needle arts.   I love teaching and sharing the knowledge I have accumulated.  While I do many things, my specialties are Heirloom sewing and lace making.  I hold 2 Martha Pullen certifications (view the link to Martha Pullen’s site).

If you have any sewing or needlework questions, just “Ask Rita” and I will be happy to answer your questions.

      Hi Carol,

      Thanks for your message – I’ll let you know what I’m up to. I’ve been keeping busy trying to stay up with my Martha Pullen techniques class and GOM every month. This month I’m teaching Battenberg Lace as well – my students seem to love the hand work and lace making techniques. I’m hoping to get a class started in Bobbin Lace in the fall. I’m having a lot of fun dusting off and bringing out the old techniques I did years ago. Swedish weaving, net darning, pulled thread, blackwork, silk and metal threads, and drawn thread work are also on the horizon. Brazilian embroidery is another of my favorites to do and teach. I guess I’ll be busy and out of trouble for awhile.

      Hope you are staying cool – keep stitchin’
      – Rita
