Cross stitch

A cross stitch project I designed and created earlier this year.

It’s no secret that the North Coast and the Long Beach Peninsula are full of talented artists of all mediums, ranging from textile arts to poetry. No matter the medium, each local artist uniquely crafts their pieces with an art that is true to themselves and their passions.

Local crafters are no exception, whether they’ve been crafting for decades or weeks. While several crafters are often featured in local galleries or at local crafting classes, there are plenty of lesser-known crafters, too.

Coast Weekend wants to celebrate crafting with you, regardless of how long you’ve been creating art. If you have a craft or an art piece that you made sometime since the coronavirus pandemic began and would like to see it featured in Coast Weekend, send an email to or visit the “send us your news” feature at In your submission, include a photo of your artwork, your name, town of residence and the name of your piece if it has one.

Readers’ submissions will be featured in a future edition of Coast Weekend.

If you know of a local artist (or are one yourself) who hasn’t yet been featured in a Coast Weekend article and would like to be, please send a few sentences about the artist, plus contact information to the email above or the submission form. Including photos of the artist’s work is recommended but not required.
