Can you believe we’re halfway through the week before the week before Christmas? Where’s my snow? And why isn’t my tree up yet?
With time flying by so very quickly, I think it’s a perfect day to give away a calendar.
Not just any calendar, mind you! This is a calendar you’ll want hanging where you – and the rest of your world – can see it daily! It’s beautiful. It will keep you inspired all year long!
And I’m also going to announce the scissor winners from A Stitcher’s Christmas #4! So read on!
The 2017 Inspirations Calendar
I love the yearly Inspirations calendar! A hanging calendar an indispensable household tool. I reference mine daily.
And when a calendar features beautiful embroidery, it makes it that much easier for me to look at it, use it, love it! Everyone who sees my yearly Inspirations calendar, comments on it – even non-embroidery-enthusiasts.
The calendar features 16 months of beautiful needlework, in large, glossy pages. There’s plenty of space on the daily grid to write in appointments or make notes of birthdays and important dates.
If you belong to a needlework guild or you have a circle of stitching friends – or maybe you just have one close stitching friend – or maybe just one person you know who loves embroidery or art in general – this calendar can’t go wrong as a perfect Christmas gift. Take it to your guild group gift exchange. Send it to your mom as a special surprise. You’ll make points, trust me!
Today’s give-away is courtesy of Wooly Thread. For those of us living in the US, I’m so glad they carry this year’s calendar – it makes shipping a lot faster! The calendar is on sale this week at Wooly Thread – you’ll find it on the front page of their website. If you don’t have yours yet, now’s the time to get it!
If you’d like to win your own copy of the 2017 Inspirations calendar, join in today’s give-away following the guidelines down below!
Stitcher’s Christmas #4 – Scissor Winners!
For those of the many of you who joined in on last Friday’s Stitcher’s Christmas #4 give-away (two pairs of embroidery scissor, one to each of two winners), here are the two randomly drawn winners!
For the Dovo scissors, the winner is Lindy Sherrod and for the Gingher scissors, the winner is Fran C. Congratulations, ladies! I’ll contact you by email today for your mailing information, and hopefully, you’ll be able to stuff your own stockings with your brand new scissors, come Christmas Eve!
Incidentally, I just love reading all of your answers to the give-away questions! The current answers on A Stitcher’s Christmas #5 for the stumpwork kit and class – the question about your dream stitching spot – have been especially fun to read!
This give-away is now ended. Thanks for participating!
