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

The New Crewel – Winner Announced & Happy Birthday!


Amazon Books

When completing the drawing for The New Crewel this morning, I had to laugh! I like it when life dishes up a healthy dose of “coincidence”!

The copy of the book, The New Crewel by Katherine Shaughnessy, has found a home!

The winner is Terri Sue, and strangely enough, today also happens to be her birthday. Happy birthday, Terri Sue!

Please contact me with a mailing address and I’ll get the book out to you this week!

Keep an eye out for future give-aways on Needle ‘n Thread – I’ve been accumulating a stack of nice little things that I plan to start dishing out in May and June!

  1. Happy Birthday Terri,
    Such luck and good fortune must be acknowledged.
    Hope the book is all you wanted it to be.

  2. G'day Mary,

    Another beaut prize finds a deserving home. Thanks Mary.

    Terri Sue, you might find yourself going down a whole new path once you start into non-traditional designs for others. The two can be blended together successfully too. You probably would find experimenting with the designs quite exciting. Have fun, congratulations and the happiest birthday you have ever had.

    Cheers, Kath.
