What fun!  Whether you’re a fan of the Original Series or The Next Generation, you’ve gotta love these!

Star Trek Embroidery Hoop Art from BeyondTheStory – $24.00 ea

These pre-made Star Trek hoops are 7″ & ready to decorate your wall or book shelf. They are done entirely free form and each is unique. The black fabric has purple vapors and hand stitched lettering and stars. The stars are a mixture of white and silver threads.

The Next Generation is well known for Captain Picard saying, “Make it So.” They were always exploring strange new worlds, discovering new life and new civilizations. They really did, “make it so.”

In contrast, The Original Series was made up of red shirts and Bones’ famous declaration, “He’s dead Jim.” Now, two famous sayings can live on in your home as a constant reminder of those thousands of hours we have all spent watching these beloved television series that taught us about equality, respect for life, and the trouble with tribbles.
