cross stitch giveaway!

In celebration of my "How to Cross Stitch" series, I have put together a fab giveaway for one lucky winner. 


That's pretty much everything you'll need to get started in cross stitching. Aida cloth, a book full of patterns, hoops, needles, and thread. Even if you are already a stitcher, this is a great stash building prize. And if you don't like cross stitch, the book also has so many great embroidery patterns in it. In other words - this is a prize for stitchers of all kinds! 

This giveaway is open to continental U.S. residents only and ends Tuesday, April 17th at 10:00pm CST. I'll catch all you international folks in the next giveaway, promise.

To enter:
Be a follower of this blog and leave me a comment telling me why you'd love to win. 
Want to try your hand at cross stitching? Want to build up your supply? Want that book? Want to win so you can resell it on ebay for extra cash? (Maybe don't tell me that one as your reason.) Whatever it is, leave a comment.

As always, please make sure that I have a way to get a hold of you in case you win. Leave your email address in your comment or make sure it is linked to your profile. I am seriously serious. Make it easy for me to give you stuff!

Good luck!

  1. I actually fell in love with embroidery through your series! I've always wanted to try it and the series just really pushed me to do it. I wouldn't mind taking a swing at cross stitching, especially since I have such great resources now on where to begin. Hope I win!

  5. I have just started crosshatching again after years of not doing it because I always messed up the counts. I would love to win this to build up my stash, and I would love that book. My first cross stitch project came out of it's sister, A Rainbow of Stitches, and this book has been living on my wish list for a little while. Wouldn't say no to the floss and cloth either :)

    Thanks for the chance!

  19. i would LOVE to win. i was thinking i wanted to learn a new craft and saw something in the store and thought cross stitching. I was so excited when i saw your seris on it a few days later. but i thought this new craft would have to be put on hold because new supplies were not in my budget, this would be totally awesome! ( i always start out a new craft by buying a book lol)

  24. Already a follower! And I've been loving your cross stitch series. I've done 2 projects on my own using a store-bought pattern, but I would like to get more creative with my work and create something unique, using suggestions from patterns, so this book would be great for that! Nice giveaway! :)

  27. Following! And I really, really, really want that book of patterns. I started cross stitching as a kid when you could buy everything (floss, hoop, pattern, cloth) together in a kit. The patterns were sooooooo grandma-ish, but I loved doing it. I haven't cross stitched in a while because I don't like most of the patterns I see. Having that book (and all the other goodies) would be so awesome! Thanks for the giveaway!

  34. I used to cross stitch a ton when I was in middle/high school, but haven't bought supplies since then. I have recently started embroidering on scrap fabric, but I would love to be able to cross stitch again. It's such a relaxing thing to do while watching a movie.

  35. I would love to win this! I grew up cross stitching because my granny owned a cross stitching supply store called The Cedar Chest =) But it's probably been about 10 years since I've done anything. This might be the jumpstart I need! Good luck everyone =)

  39. I have been cross-stitching for a long while. I am currently recovering from spinal surgery in which I miraculously *didn't* lose motor control in my right hand (like they warned me I might have), and am being encouraged by my surgeon to do all the stitching and such that I love to keep those muscles in top shape.

  40. I'm a follower of your blog. You're always encouraging and inspiring. Through this blog, I've gained an interest for embroidery. I'm currently a cross-stitcher and this giveaway would help expand my knowledge of both. Thanks for doing this! Dana

  41. My grandmother taught me how to cross-stitch when I was about 9 and I gave her my first ever project (a little red barn & chicken). My grandmother passed away many years ago and that little red barn is framed and hangs in my bedroom. I smile and think of her every time I look at it. My youngest daughter just turned 7 and has expressed an interest in learning how to cross-stitch. I would love to give her a kit of her very own. Thanks for the great giveaway.

I love the neatness and form of a well done cross-stitch pattern. There is just something so charming and lovely about the combination of colors and stitches that draws me to this craft. Thank you of the opportunity to win a wonderful gift package. I especially love the book...the cover says it all for me!! Be especially blessed, Kathy

  53. I used to cross stitch when I was in college, but took a break for awhile. Of course marriage and children made that a very long break;-) I found your blog a few months ago and became inspired. I've actually pulled out some unfinished projects and purchased some new ones. I would love to win that book! I definitely consider myself a beginner and have a lot to learn. I would love to win those supplies to keep up and improve on my work! Thank you again for your blog and all the inspiration:-)

  54. Cross stitching and embroidery are so fun for me but I never seem to find good patterns. This book and supplies seem like just what I need to fall in love with the art all over again.

  55. I follow you on Blogger and BlogLovin!

    I would love love love to win this set because I have been wanting to start cross stitching and embroidery in my free time so badly, but funds are so tight right now, I haven't been able to justify the start up fees. I have a lot of the needed materials already in my sewing supplies, but this would be such a great start! I've been a little down lately and a peaceful hobby like this would be perfect to keep my hands busy.

    I also want to finally comment and thank you so much for your cross stitch lessons/tips posts lately. You're so good at it and they're great to read!

  56. I would love to win this giveaway first of all, for the book (it's been on my Amazon wishlist for a while now) and second for those nice wooden hoops. I'm just starting out and I only have plastic hoops that I don't like very much.

    Thanks for the giveaway and for the intro to stitching!

  59. This is an amazing giveaway! Thank you for putting it together.
    I follow you everywhere you are! Lol! Big fan, I guess.
    Why do I want to win....well, I've always wanted to cross stitch but it looked hard and kinda boring, to be honest. It wasn't until you picked it up that I saw how modern and fun it really was! But it still looked hard and all the books in the library are sooo outdated...I didn't really know wher ....or how!...to start! So this would be quite perfect. Also, it's almost my birthday and I would love to win something in time for it! Lol!
    Thanks again!

  60. This would definitely help me to build my supply. The book looks so fun! I always can use some extra inspiration. Thank you for doing your stitch series. You do excellent tutorials!

  61. I never realized how beautiful cross stitch can be! I would love to win because I would like to try to make something beautiful like you make. I still can's believe the Breakfast Club cross stitch you made for the gift exchange last summer!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Wow, I think this is the best contest price that I've seen since I've started following blogs related to embroidery! It would be amazing to win it, since it would be a good kick to start with cross stitch! I've recently starting with the "regular" embroidery, and in this part of the world is not so easy to see good supplies... The book looks awsome, for what I could see in Amazon at least.
