Here ’tis, then – the give-away I mentioned early, when I spoke of Trish Burr’s kits that arrived last week! Trish very generously sent along one that could be used as a give-away to my readers! If you’ve been wanting to try thread painting techniques, this is a great way to learn!
The embroidery kit that I’m giving away is the one titled “Flowers in Bloom,” designed for beginner “plus” stitchers.
This project is suitable for anyone beginning needle painting, who has some knowledge of stitching in general. I think, given the clear and detailed instructions, a flat-out beginner who is interested could definitely work this project.
Here’s a list of the kit contents…
The instructions include clear diagrams, written instructions, and step-by-step photos of the project as it is worked, to help guide the stitcher to a beautiful finished product.
The linen comes with the design pre-printed on it, so you don’t have to transfer your pattern – in other words, you can launch right into the fun part, which is stitching!
There’s even a nice practice cloth, so you can play with the different types of elements in the design before stitching them on the finished piece.
And, as a full kit, it comes with all the threads, clearly labeled, as well as two needles. All you need is your own hoop or frame and scissors, and you’re ready to start stitching!
If you’d like a chance to win this kit, these are the instructions to join the give-away:
1. Leave a comment below, on this blog post (not via e-mail, or on any other post).
2. In your comment, answer the following question: Once you finish stitching this piece, what do you think you’d do with the finished embroidery?
3. Comments must be received by 5:00 am CST, Monday, June 8th. I’ll announce the contest winner on Monday. Whoever wins must then contact me with a mailing address within 48 hours. If I do not hear from the first winner, I’ll draw another name! Instructions for contacting me will be on the post announcing the winner!
Thanks for joining in! And thanks, Trish, for the extra kit!
