Happy Wednesday, and welcome to the 8th installments of A Stitcher’s Christmas for this unforgettable year of 2020!
Today’s give-away is courtesy of Needle in a Haystack, where Cathe Ray has been busily producing needlework tools and accessories! This give-away includes a nice sampling of them.
I’ll also announce the winners of Monday’s gifts at the end of today’s articles, so read on!
A while back, I highlighted the pin keeps that Cathe has been making, some of which feature my designs.
She has since expanded into other accessories, including tool trays with embedded magnets to hold needles or scissors in place and to keep your work space organized! (Hey, anything to keep organized is a good thing, don’t you reckon?)
Today’s give-away features one of these lovely little tool trays, kitted out with serrated Premax scissors, a set of gold, red, and green #4 Au Ver a Soie metallic braid and two coordinating 100/3 silk threads, a humorous needlebook that reads RIP 2020, and a pin keep kit featuring one of my kaleidoscope designs.
This collection will go to one winner, randomly drawn on Friday morning.
Here are the guidelines for today’s give-away – and I apologize for the repetition of questions on Monday’s. Whoops! Cut and paste isn’t always the best option…
If you’d like to participate in today’s give-away, please follow these guidelines!
This give-away has ended. You’ll find the winner posted on December 18th’s article. Thanks for participating!

In Other News…
To stick with the 2020 Theme, I had a major equipment failure in the studio on Monday, which has brought production to a screeching halt.
Now, you might think this is bad news – and in a sense, it is, because many of you are waiting to order more Christmas towel sets (I’m working on an interim solution) – but usually, equipment failures in the studio end up being a blessing in disguise. I’m always overly cautious when it comes to investing in new equipment. Most favorable equipment upgrades in my studio have been born out of pressing necessity. The results have always been good! It was time to make an upgrade, and now I must. So that’s a good thing!
And besides, the whole thing forces us to slow down a bit, at a time when it’s good to slow down!
On Friday, look for books and kits in A Stitcher’s Christmas, and I’ll see you then!
