About this blog

The Pinbroidery blog has information about making hand-stitched greeting cards. There are posts on technique, free patterns and news from the Form-A-Lines and Stitching Cards online stores.

My name is David Jefferson and I live near the historic English market town of St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England. I am a designer of stitching card patterns. I created the patterns in the Pinbroidery, Stitching Cards and Form-A-Lines range.

Pinbroidery patterns are available in the Form-A-Lines online store.


You may have noticed our web address starts with c3z3.com, a domain that is shared with other websites. By sharing resources, these websites use less energy than separate domains would, making them more eco-friendly. Plus, you can type c3z3.com into your web browser, and you will reach a page with a link to this blog.

We have been asked why c3z3? It was chosen because it is short and easy to remember (all the letters/numbers rhyme when z is pronounced zee). The number 3 has powerful symbolism. Think about good things coming in 3s (3 wishes, 3 wise men, etc.). Wherever the number 3 shows up in your life, it is generally an omen of creativity, communication, curiosity, zeal, zest, and zen.
