I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

And the Winners Are…. Quilt Book Give-away


Amazon Books

This morning, I drew two winners for the quilt book give-away that I posted last weekend.

I’ve been thinking I need to do some “random number generator” thing, because typing out the names and cutting them up and drawing them from the box – well, it takes time. Surely I can “efficient-ize” this somehow!!

ANYWAY – I’m sure you’re not reading this to hear me whinge, so, who won the quilt books?

The first name I drew was Kathy in the Ozarks, and the second name was Appleseed.

Please do contact me with your mailing address so I can get those out to you!

Thanks, everyone, for participating! This coming weekend, I’m going to give away another book – one on Wool Felting. So, if you like give-aways, and you like wool felting, you’re in luck! And so am I, because I need to clear out these books. This is rather slow way of doing it, though, isn’t it??!!

  1. Yes, Mary, it is slow BUT it is worth every drawn out minute because we love it – love the contests – love hearing from you and each other – so keep it up , Mary, please continue!

  2. I am new this past summer at embroidery and crazy quilting. I love stitching and am lucky enough to have found a wonderful teacher. This website and the videos are so very helpful and I am finding information in every area I am looking and so much more. Also, the love for stitching just jumps from your pages. Thank you so very much.
