November Giveaway

In an effort to find a chart for a round robin I was participating in, I delved into my magazine stash and came up with something perfect for the project. In the process, I spent a pleasant hour, sipping tea and turning pages. Hence the idea for this month's giveaway: a packet of loose tea from my favorite on-line source, SpecialTeas, and a few back issues of Stitcher's World: March 2004, January 2005, May 2005, July 2005, January 2006. Stitcher's World does a Christmas All Year Round feature in their January issues so there are a number of Christmas designs in these magazines that the winner would still have time to stitch this year ... in addition to all the usual seasonal winter designs also featured in the January issues. I know it's an odd assortment of issues but, then I don't subscribe to the magazine. Instead, I have picked up only the odd issue here and there while browsing at Barnes & Nobles

If you wish to enter your name for this giveaway, the usual conditions will apply:
-- open to all stitchers
-- leave a comment below as to why you are interested in the giveaway
-- include an e-mail address in your post if clicking on your name will not lead me to an e-mail link
-- a winner will be selected on the 10th of the month and informed by e-mail
-- winners are asked to commit to PIF charts to other stitchers through message boards, guilds or stitching groups or to donate the charts to a women's shelter or prison, a nursing home or some other venue where a stitcher would enjoy them.

Good luck to all who enter.

What a nice package for the winner. What ever happened to Stitcher's World? I have some earlier issues, but nothing this recent. Thanks Linda

I would love to be considered for the giveaway! I can't seem to find them around here and can't afford to subscribe right now either.

Thank you,

Hi Riona:
This is my first visit to your blog and I have enjoyed the photos and musings.

I'd like to try for your give-away. A cup of tea and a few minutes of time to look through Cross-stitch magazines sounds heavenly. My Christmas budget is such that I'm making ornaments for the family this year and any "freebies" I can get would be helpful.

I'll return the favor by posting a PIF of a couple of charts that need good homes.

Thanks for sharing your blog with us.

Riona - your ornament tree is a treasure! Please enter me in your generous giveaway - I've never seen Stitcher's World in person, but the covers in your photo look great!

I have several older issues of Stitchers World and would love to add these to my collection. I am always looking for new patterns to stitch up and love the magazine patterns.

Thanks for the chance to win.

What a wonderful giveaway. Reading cross stitch magazines while sipping a cup of tea - sounds perfect! I would be happy to do a PIF. Thanks for your generosity.

I would love to enter your contest. I have many Stitcher's World magazines, but have a huge gap in the collection after 2001. Thanks for letting me enter.
