Good morning, and welcome to Installment #2 of this year’s Stitcher’s Christmas – a series of delectable needlework give-aways leading up to Christmas!
Today’s give-away includes a gorgeous kit, silk ribbon collection, and books, courtesy of the Queen of Silk Ribbon, Di van Niekerk! More details below…
I’ll also tell you the winners of Monday’s give-away, so make sure you read through to see if your name is on that list!
Also, I’m going to tighten up the give-away guidelines, so please read those carefully. Thanks!
Ahhhh… there’s just something sumptuously glorious about silk ribbon, isn’t there?
And no one quite does silk ribbon like Di van Niekerk. If you have never visited her website, do! It’s had a bit of a refresh this year, and it is a treasure trove of silk ribbon embroidery information, supplies, kits, books… you must visit, especially if you love ribbon embroidery, florals, dimensional needlework, and the like!
Today’s give-away is for two winners. Both winners will receive a signed copy of Di’s beautiful instruction and project book called Little Flowers:
The first name randomly drawn will also receive Di’s kit, Tea in the Garden:
You can read all the details about the kit here on Di’s website. It’s a gorgeous little kit, perfect for beginners or even more advanced stitchers who just want something dreamy and fun to do.
The second winner will receive a full color collection of silk ribbon:
This particular color collection is called Lady in Red, and you can read about it here. It includes 16 packets of ribbon in assorted sizes.
If you’d like to participate in today’s give-away, please follow these guidelines. No, really! Do! It will save me so much time – and it will give you the confidence that you did it right and you’re in for the draw!
This give-away has ended. Thanks to all who participated! You can find the randomly drawn winners on the next article, published December 4th.
