Thank you guys for sharing your embroidery toolkits with us over the last couple of weeks! I am seriously not joking when I say that I've written a list of tools to gather and add to my own toolkit - you all had some awesome tips to share. And that, of course, was the whole point - for us all to share our experience and learn from each other.
And also to win fantastic prizes! Carina, Nicole and I read every entry and together we chose one post that was everything we could've asked for: it had beautiful photos, shared interesting tool tips, and gave a wonderful sense of where the tools fit into the stitcher's life and work.
Congratulations to María Tenorio! María wrote this lovely post about her embroidery toolkit - we were especially intrigued by your braided thread:
Thank you so much for entering, María, we loved your post! You win all those goodies from Sublime Stitching, plus the miniature needlepoint kit from Retrosaria Zoe AND handspun embroidery threads from Dragonflylotus Designs! Yay!
But wait! The entries were so awesome, we dug up some surprise prizes for two runners-up! Carriebee with her adorable envelope toolkit-clutch and Work-in-Progress Girl with her very funny look at the state of her tools and supplies - we've got one Sublime Stitching pattern and two skeins of Weeks Dye Works overdyed embroidery floss for each of you!
Winners, please get in touch with us with your postal address within two weeks from today so that we can get your prizes out to you! Thank you everyone for playing along - we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
