Time for the next episode in A Stitcher’s Christmas 2017, a series of pre-Christmas give-aways here on Needle ‘n Thread featuring some of the finest embroidery supplies, tools, kits, designs, and goodies available on the market.
Are you ready? Are you excited? I am, because today, it’s all about crewel work!
I’ll announce the winner of A Stitcher’s Christmas #4 (the slate frame and needle minder), and I’ll tell you all about a beautiful new Tree of Life authentic crewel embroidery kit from The Crewel Work Company!
First, winner business!
The randomly drawn winner of the slate frame and needle minder beautifully hand-crafted by Mark Harris of Mythic Crafts is Annamarie in Idaho.
Congratulations, Annamarie! I’ll drop you an email today to get the process going, so that you can enjoy using your new slate frame soon!
A huge thank you to Mark Harris at Mythic Crafts, where you can find exquisite hand-crafted slate frames with customizable options, as well meticulously designed and finished wooden boxes for mounting embroidery, and a wide array of wooden needle minders that feature just about any type of design you want!
New Tree of Life Kits from The Crewel Work Company!
This morning’s give-away comes to you courtesy of The Crewel Work Company, the world’s best source for authentic crewel work embroidery kits.
Philippa Turnbull has recently released a new – and stunning – Tree of Life design, which you can see featured in the photo above. You can get an even better look at it here, on the Crewel Work Company’s website.
The design features a stately dog and all the glorious attractions of a classic Tree of Life design. It’s a fantastic piece, perfect for lover’s of crewel embroidery and Jacobean designs!
The kit includes the design printed on The Crewel Work Company’s historically accurate z-twist linen twill specially woven for them in the Highlands of Scotland, all the required wool threads, a stitch chart, needles, step-by-step instructions for completing the Tree of Life, the beginner’s booklet The Essential Guide for Newcomers to Crewel Work, and a sturdy box to keep everything together in!
And on top of all that, today’s give-away is for two winners, each of whom will receive their very own Tree of Life kit (which increases your chance of winning significantly!).
This give-away is now closed! Thanks to all who participated!
