Time for some needlework tools!! Most of us have our favorite tools that we like to embroider with – whether it’s a favorite pair of scissors, a favorite embroidery needle, a favorite laying tool, thread organizer, light, magnifier, embroidery frame, floor stand. We all have our favorites, right?
Well, my quickly-emerging all-time favorite, overall best-ever, wouldn’t-be-without-it tool is just about any embroidery needle made by Bohin. More and more, I find myself preferring Bohin needles over other needles on the market. They are good needles.
I’ve been corresponding with Anita of Anita’s Little Stitches, because she likes Bohin needles, too. She’s currently stocking her shop with all kinds of Bohin tools, and especially all their needles, making available Bohin combo packs and even bulk packages of needles.
Thanks to Anita’s Little Stitches, then, today’s give-away features a collection of random Bohin tools, for two lucky winners!
The photo above is a representation of the types of tools you’ll receive in this give-away – Bohin’s ceramic pencil, an assortment of Bohin needles, a pair of Bohin scissors, and some other little goodies thrown in for good measure!
Each winner will receive one of these. This Bohin ceramic pencil is great for marking dark fabrics, especially, but the darker leads available also work well on light fabrics. It creates a good line that lasts long enough for stitching – it doesn’t brush off immediately like a chalk pencil would. It works great on smooth fabrics. I use this all the time on cottons and very fine linen, when I want a light line that’s easy to cover and that won’t smudge my threads. It’s also great for marking cutting lines on fabrics, and for marking quilting design lines, too.
Each winner will receive a pair of Bohin scissors. One pair is this teeny tiny pair of travel scissors (they are so cute!), and the other, a pretty pair of regular-sized embroidery scissors.
Each winner will receive a nice selection of my choice of Bohin needles, too.
You will love them!
(Or I’ll eat my hat.)
I’ll also throw in a few little other tool-ish doodads for the fun of it.
The give-away has ended! Thanks for participating!<\b>
To enter today’s give-away, please follow these guidelines:
2. In your comment, answer the following:
What’s your dream tool for needlework and what’s so great about it? (It might be your favorite one that you already have, or one that you want to own.)
3. Please make sure you leave a recognizable name either in the name line on the comment form or in the comment box. For example, if your name is Sue, please differentiate yourself somehow from other Sues out there! (It just saves a lot of confusion!)
4. And, finally, comments must be submitted by Wednesday, October 31st (Happy Halloween!), by 5:00 am Central Daylight Time (Kansas, USA). I’ll announce the two winners on Wednesday morning.
So that’s how it works! It’s not too complicated, so do leave a comment – it’s a good opportunity, if nothing else, to get a variety of Bohin needles into your hands, so you can see if you love them, too!
And hey, the odds that you’ll win? Much better than the lottery!
Have a swell Friday and a wonderful weekend!
