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

Needle Painting Embroidery Book – Winner Announced!


Amazon Books

Well, today’s the day to announce the winner of Trish Burr’s new book, Needle Painting Embroidery: Fresh Ideas for Beginners!

Needle Painting Embroidery

(I just had to use the Bee-eater. He is So Cute.)

As usual, I used a random number generator for the drawing. I toyed with the idea of writing all the names out and drawing them from a hat….

Without further ado, the winner of the book is Duane Sikorski, who left this comment: If you’d only seen what I’ve attempted so far, you’d agree I need this book! Short and sweet, but it did the trick, eh?

Duane, please contact me with your mailing address, and I’ll get the book on its way!

Trish’s new book is available online through various sources, including Trish Burr’s website (where you’ll also find fabric with the designs from the projects in this book already pre-drawn on them, as well as her DVD on long and short stitch embroidery), Book Depository, and Amazon. You can also ask for it at your local needlework shop. If they don’t have it, I bet they can get it for you!

Thanks to all for participating in the give-away!

Tomorrow, I’ll have the registration page up for The Nesting Place, an online class hosted here on Needle ‘n Thread. If you’re interested in signing up, look for the details tomorrow!

See you then!

  1. Congratulations. This book would be great to have even if all you ever did was enjoy the beautiful photos. But it looks very inspiring too. Have fun with it.

  2. Dear Mary

    Congradulations to Duane. I bought the book just before your competition. I can’t until tomorrow for the registration of the nesting place on line course.

  4. Congratulations, Duane. Well deserved.

    This little contest has sure helped Trish’s book sales soar. 😉

    I’ve asked Mary to recommend the best of Trish’s books for me to buy online. And then I’ll feel a winner too.

    Fondest love, all,


  5. G’day Mary and congratulations to Duane. I’m happy for you Duane and for you too Mary to have the pleasure of such a fantastic give away. Good on you both.
