Just in time for you to relax and enjoy some post-holiday needlework, I’m giving away one of Trish Burr’s new Projects CDs! It’s almost like getting seven embroidery kits in one simple format!
Trish has recently produced a Needle Painting Workshop CD and DVD called “The Long and Short of It.” What I’m giving away here is just the project CD, courtesy of Trish.
It comes in a hard jewel case, for safe storage.
The CD contains three sections: a PDF on stitching instructions (understood best, I think, in conjunction with her DVD), a PDF of clear, printable photos of each of the seven projects on the CD, and a PDF containing all the information for the individual projects.
On the latter PDF, you’ll find it starts with a clear, clickable index for each project.
For each project featured, you will find a traceable design, a materials list (DMC threads), and…
… stage-by-stage photo instructions for the project.
I tested the CD on both my PC and my Mac, and it works great on both. This CD really is a lot like having SEVEN of Trish’s kits at your fingertips for whenever you want them! (Minus the actual fabric and threads!) If you have a stash of DMC floss and some decent muslin or linen on hand, you’d be good to go!
UPDATE: Tuesday, December 22nd: If you live in the US and want to order Trish’s DVD / CD set, the best way to go about it (to save you on shipping and handling and time) is to order through Nordic Needle. Right now, the set is not listed on their website, so you actually have to call and place the order. You can find a toll-free number on their contact info page, on the bottom of the website. They have a limited number in stock right now.
If you do call them, tell them you’d be interested in seeing Trish’s kits in their online store, too. RIght now, they aren’t carrying them, but I hope that they will in the future!
