Blog Givaway

It is six years today since I started my blog and so I thought I would do a little givaway in celebration, writing this blog has changed my life in ways I couldn't have imagined when I started it.

I met Lynda (Purplemissus) through our blogs and even though we live at opposite ends of the country, we went on to write our online courses and the book Stitching The Textured Surface.
I have met many more wonderful people through my blog and have been lucky enough to meet some of them in person.

Talking to various embroiderers and textile artist at my guild a few of them mentioned that they would like to try my classes but they can't cope with using a heat gun either because of health problems or they just don't want to invest in lots of new materials and equipment and so I have put together some packs of materials for them to have a try.



One pack includes one piece each of Pelmet Vilene, Bondaweb, Gold Transfoil and Lutradur already stencilled with Molding Paste and burnt away, ready to be painted with the colour of choice.They are all A4 size, (roughly 8 1/2" x 11 1/2")

Leave a comment on todays post and I will pull one name out of the hat next Monday February 6th and send a sample pack.

You could turn it into something like this 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" book

Congratulations on six years blogging - I must look to see how long I have been doing it, but I know not six years! I have always loved your blogs, but lately I have been very tardy about reading any blogs much, time always seems to disappear - such a shame because you all write such interesting things and so generously show us many wonderful techniques. Cheers
