four september giveaways!
This month Okan Arts is giving away a slew of goodies from hand-stitch guru Sue Spargo and publisher Martingale. There are four giveaways. Three are 2019 Stitches to Savor calendars from Martingale (value $22.99 each). The fourth is a grand collection: Sue’s self-published book Creative Stitching, six 1/32 cuts of wool,six spools of appliqué thread, and six spools of perle cotton (value $102).
Sue inspires stitchers around the world with her folksy embroidered and appliquéd stitch work. Her 2019 calendar brims with 12 of these fabulous textural projects.
Creative Stitching by Sue Spargo provides all the info you need to create her designs. The book spans a chapter of Threads & Needles, and instructions for 72 stitches and 8 stitch variations—with step-by-step illustrations! The 100% wool, hand dyed in-house at the Sue Spargo studio in Ohio, is milled in the US. The superior-grade wool is fray resistant and the right thickness for adding dimension to your projects through layering. Wow! The colors of the Ellana 50/50 merino wool/acrylic blend thread perfectly match the Hand Dyed Wool. This high strength 12 wt, 2 ply thread feels superbly soft and stitches smoothly.
The limited edition set of perle cotton includes five thread weights—#8, #5 and #3. Specially designed for hand embroiderers and embellishers, the lustrous thread is made with long staple Egyptian cotton.THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. The winners are Judith L of Tallahassee FL, Karen R of Waterloo IA, Bonnie C of Gretna NE, and Judi T of Cedar Park TX.
