About Me & Contact

I’m Rebecca Greco. I have my BFA in Illustration from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. After college I worked as a designer and now I stay home with my two little girls.

Hugs are Fun was born from a desire to create new and modern cross stitch designs and has expanded from there! I still sell cross stitch patterns but I have also turned my focus to other crafts, lately embroidery and English paper pieced quilting are my favorites!

I had a project appear in the publications; Hoop-La, Mollie Makes US, WhipperCrafter, and One Thimble and my work has been featured on Mr. X Stitch, &Stitches, CraftGawker, Craftster, about.com, and CraftGossip. I have exhibited my cross stitches both in the US and in the UK.

I have also written a number of guest posts –
My Craftily Ever After
Bugs and Fishes
Knit Me a Cake
The Twinery
