Giveaway: Embroidery Starter Pack

It's time for this month's giveaway! Hurrah!

This month I'm giving away a fab bundle of supplies: 36 skeins of stranded cotton embroidery thread, a sheet of Aida fabric for sewing crossstitch designs, and three mini embroidery hoops.


The hoops are flexible plastic with a woodgrain design and are designed so you can use them as picture frames for your finished work. To give you an idea of the size of the hoops, the oval hoop is about 2.5 inches wide x 3.5 inches high.

As always, I'm happy to ship internationally, so anyone can enter. Just leave a comment on this blog post for a chance to win! (If you're reading this on my Facebook page please click through to the original blog post to leave your comment).

Leave your comment before 10pm on Friday 18th February and
I'll pick a winner at random on Saturday 19th February.

Please make sure you leave a name or pseudonym (no anonymous comments please!) and leave a link or email address so I can contact you, or make sure to come back to see if you got picked.

P.S. I no longer sell the woodgrain embroidery hoops in my shops, but packs of mini 3inch wooden hoops will be back very soon! Packs of embroidery thread are available from my website, my Etsy shop or my Folksy shop.

UPDATE: this giveaway is now closed

I would love to be the winner of this giveaway! I recently started to do some research about embroidery and want to start doing some again soon. I used to do it a lot when I was younger, as I grandma was the most talented embroiderer I've ever known.

Thanks Laura for the opportunity!

Good Morning Laura. I just posted on my blog and saw that you put yours up right before me. I'd love to have a chance to win. It's been awhile since I've had a chance to stop by. I love the owl you did on the last post. It's so cute. And all your pictures are really great. Wish I could take pictures like that.
