Happy Wednesday! Today we’re busy in the office with prep for 2013 and all the fantastic issues of Creative Machine Embroidery to come. We’re also looking back at forms of embroidery that didn’t necessarily use a machine. The first embroidery I ever attempted was cross-stitch. I had so much fun making little motifs for my friends and family. Did you know you can cross-stitch with your embroidery machine? Watch for tips on how to do this in an upcoming issue of CME!
With all that in mind, we’re giving away a cross-stitch book from Andrews McMeel Universal, Love Kills Slowly, 30 Cross-Stitch Patterns from Ed Hardy. This book is filled with inspiration from the iconic tattoo artist Ed Hardy. Using his fun designs, you can quickly stitch up a series of skulls, dragons, butterflies and little devils.
If you would like to win, all you have to do is answer one question: What types of hand embroidery do you enjoy?
Answer the question in the comments field below before Friday afternoon, when we’ll announce a randomly chosen winner. Best of luck!
