Blackwork Embroidery Class Winner!


Amazon Books

Today, a very quick little announcement to let you know who won Tanja Berlin’s online blackwork embroidery class from last week’s give-away…

Tanja Berlin Online Blackwork Embroidery Class

The convenience of being able to attend online embroidery classes whenever, wherever, regardless of schedule, was certainly the greatest appeal mentioned in your comments on the give-away. Especially for those who are home-bound for reasons of health, mobility, and so forth, online classes provide a great way to learn an embroidery technique from a qualified teacher.

The winner of the blackwork class (and all the needful supplies to complete it) is Alessandra in CT. Congratulations, Alessandra! Please drop me a line so I can send your information along to Tanja.

If you didn’t win and you’re keen to take the class, you can find more information on Tanja’s blackwork embroidery class here. Registration is open until September 2nd!


Thanks kindly for all the get-well wishes that flooded in yesterday. Can’t quite respond to them all, but be assured, they are appreciated! You brighten my day – every day!

I haven’t felt like doing much that requires any thought or real effort. In my “up” time yesterday, I played around a bit with my Pinterest boards and added a bunch of pins here and there. If you hang about on Pinterest, feel free to look me up there!
