Renaissance Dyeing Crewel Wool Winner!


Amazon Books

Well, that was a fun and enthusiastic give-away! Thank you to Andie of Renaissance Dyeing for the beautiful crewel wool in the Elizabethan color range! A very generous gift that’s sure to please, because it’s Really Nice Wool!! Now, on to the winner…

The lucky recipient of the Elizabethan Range of Renaissance Dyeing crewel wool is……


Congratulations! Oh, the irony! Well, I think you’ll find you like wool, too, working with these threads! Please contact me in the next couple days with a mailing address, and I’ll get these out to you as soon as possible!

Thanks to all who participated – I think that’s the largest response I’ve gotten on a give-away!

If you want to try out Renaissance Dyeing wool, you might want to check out the Outlets page on their website. There, you’ll find lists of all the shops that carry Renaissance Dyeing wool around the world. There are shops that carry Renaissance Dyeing wool in the UK, in the US, in Canada in Australia, in Turkey, in different parts of Europe, and you can always order straight from the Renaissance Dyeing website.

Thanks again for joining in on the give-away and sharing your creative ideas. I’ll start drumming up another good give-away in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out!

  1. Mary,
    The link provided for Renaissance threads is out of date. Several of the websites and phone numbers aren't working.
    Happy stitching!

  2. WooHoo! Thank you Mary and Renaissance Dyeing Company! I was so excited to find that I had won the wool threads this morning. And not to worry, although I do love silk, I also love to work with wool, and will put the threads to good use.

  3. Hullo there Mary,

    And a hearty congratulations Silklover. How lovely. According to your give away comment you have lots of ideas for using these special threads.
    Do what you enjoy and you'll enjoy what you do.

    Bye and thanks again Mary.
