Good morning, all! Today, because it’s Saturday, because it’s a gorgeous day out, because I’m behind the 8-ball as usual (hence, the post is late!), and because I think you all deserve a little needlepainting in your Needlework Lives – I’m giving away a Trish Burr Needlepainting Embroidery Kit!!!
The kit is compliments of Trish Burr (thank you, Trish!), and it’s suitable for beginner to intermediate levels.
This is Trish Burr’s Daisy Spray with Rosebuds (and a blue ribbon) kit. It’s a great way to introduce yourself to needlepainting, which is shaded embroidery using primarily long and short stitch, but also including other stitches for texture and interest. So if you’ve wanted to learn needlepainting techniques, here’s a great way to get started.
If you’re already proficient at needlepainting, or if it’s a technique that hasn’t grabbed you yet, the kit would make a great gift for a stitcher in your life!
The kit comes with everything you need to complete the project – fabric with the design pre-printed, step-by-step instructions, and all the necessary threads. The threads are organized on thread drops, so you can connect these to a ring and keep them all together at your fingertips.
If you’d like to win the give-away, here’s what you have to do:
1. Leave a comment below this post (not via e-mail, not on any other post on the website), answering the following question:
What embroidery technique do you want to try, that you haven’t already tried? or, What technique do you want to improve in, that you have tried and liked?
2. Make sure you leave an identifiable name on your comment!
3. Leave the comment before 5:00 am CST, Wednesday, December 1st. I’ll draw for a winner on Wednesday morning and post the winner that day.
4. Check back to see if you won! The winner will need to contact me with a mailing address.
Best of luck!!!
The Fine Print: The give-away is open to anyone, anywhere. If mailed overseas, the receiver is responsible for any customs fees, taxes, etc. Should the item go astray in the post, please understand that I will not be able to send a replacement. (In the past five years, only two packages mailed overseas – to my knowledge – have gone astray. I don’t always hear back from the winners after the items are mailed, but I do know that one book sent to Australia never made it, and one package sent to Hungary never made it.) But I will do my best, from my end, to make sure that all is right in the mailing of the package.
