Thanks to everyone for participating in Day 7 of Sew it All TV 13 Days of Giveaways to celebrate the 3rd season of Sew it All airing on PBS!
Yesterday we asked, “Do you do hand embroidery?”
Many of you learned hand embroidery when you were young from your mothers or grandmothers for something to do. It’s a great tradition to pass down generations and a wonderful skill for making heartfelt, unique gifts. I made my brother a hand-embroidered wall hanging for Christmas. It was my first attempt and I didn’t use a pattern, I just traced and stitched over it, so it ended up looking a little….strange. Sure wish I’d had this book then!
Congratulations to our winner, Amanda Mclay, who said, “I try to do hand embroidery but lets say I need a little help to make the results look like the picture in my mind…” Me too, Amanda. Me too. Hope this book helps!
