Schwalm Embroidery Book Winner!


Amazon Books

Here’s a quick post to announce the winner of Basic Principles of Schwalm Whitework. Thanks for the excellent response to the give-away!

The winner is Karen, who wrote:

I’d love to have the book! I learned about whitework from you, so it seems only fitting 🙂 Wrinkled or not, your stitching looks great and I hope I can do that some day. The first time I read a post on your site about whitework, I made myself NOT buy the book 🙂 but I did go and buy 10 skeins of white Floche a Broder from Hedgehog Handwoks! You know, just in case. 🙂 Thanks again for sharing!

Congratulations, Karen! And just think – you’ve already got threads! Drop me a line with your mailing address, and I’ll send the book along as soon as possible!

Thanks again, all, for participating – and stay tuned for similar book give-aways in the future!
