Welcome to Erica Michaels Designs! I'm Linda Stolz and I've been sewing and stitching since I was young. Like many of you, I tried my hand at several types of needlework as I was introduced to each of them by my mother, aunt, and grandmothers - embroidery, quilting, crocheting knitting and dressmaking. I stitched my first counted cross stitch sampler early in college and was hooked. It's been a passion and a profession ever since. I sincerely hope you enjoy my designs and use them to explore your own creativity.
