Finally, A Stitcher’s Christmas #6!
If you’ve been following along with my series of pre-Christmas give-aways aimed at the Enthusiastic Embroiderer, you’ve seen some pretty jolly gifts so far! And from what I hear, are already enjoying their prizes! Just think – the next one could be you!
So let’s move on to give-away #6 in the series, shall we?
A Stitcher’s Christmas #6 is courtesy of the folks at Inspirations Studios, the publishers of Inspirations Magazine (the world’s most beautiful embroidery magazine) and other beautiful needlework publications.
A Stitcher’s Christmas #6 features a lovely little bundle of prizes – in fact, it features five bundles, one for each of five winners!
The first item in the package is a copy of Inspirations issue 96.
Now, if you’re not familiar with Inspirations magazine, I should probably tell you that receiving an issue of the magazine is like receiving a vacation in the mail. Every issue is a full-blown project book, replete with gorgeous embroidery projects, materials lists, patterns, and step-by-step instructions for each project in the book.
Each issue is also a masterpiece of photography & clear graphics, interesting stitching stories from around the globe, and readable columns to keep you up to date on needlework happenings. Accompanied by a cup of coffee and a comfy chair, the magazine provides a pleasant escape into the world of embroidery. You’ll find yourself perusing it from cover to cover, over and over!
In issue 96, some rather amazing embroidery projects cover a wide range of needlework techniques.
Whether you’re a beginner, an intermediate stitcher, or a pro who’s been plying the needle for years, there’s something for everyone in every issue!
In addition to the magazine, you’ll also receive a copy of the Inspirations calendar for 2018.
If you’re like me, you like to have a calendar (or two or three) hanging in your house to keep track of important dates and upcoming events.
Admittedly, I have three scattered about the manse – one in my kitchen marked with appointments and family happenings, one in my office space (read: bedroom, where my computer is) marked with work-related stuff, and one in my workroom where I do all my stitching stuff. The one in my workroom is always the Inspirations calendar. It features gorgeous needlework – and I love looking at gorgeous needlework! It keeps my creativity on its toes!
And what’s a needlework gift without something to get you stitching right away?
Chloe’s hoop art style is fun and imaginative, bursting with color, and utilizing simple stitches that are accessible to any level of stitcher. Because the projects are small, you get the satisfaction of a relatively quick finish! And because they’re relatively easy, the whole experience is one of relaxed enjoyment.
The kit includes ground fabric, felt, thread, and needles, and the instructions can be found in your brand new copy of Inspirations issue 96!
