GIVEAWAY! Vintage Halloween Mystery Box...

Hello, stitchy friends!  It's been too long...

Last week we launched our first limited edition mystery box - Vintage Halloween - and I can't tell you how excited I am about curating this for you!  The response was overwhelming and from the bottom of my heart I can't thank you enough for your enthusiasm.


What will our first mystery box entail, and how did this idea come about?  As a dyer I absolutely love working in color palettes and find so much inspiration in working with a theme or specific atmosphere in mind.  Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I live for Halloween stitching, so it naturally felt like a wonderful first theme for the box concept, which is something I've been toying with for some time.

The mystery box will include ten skeins of hand dyed stranded cotton thread, two skeins of hand dyed silk (12-ply) thread, two pieces of hand dyed fabric for stitching, one piece of hand dyed cotton for finishing, and other notions and goodies which are coming from a couple of my favorite vendors in the stitching community!  Each of the threads and fabrics will suit a vintage, primitive Halloween theme, although the colors can stand on their own as well.

Available spots have already sold out and deposits have been made, but we are still accepting wait list sign ups in the event that anyone cancels, or if we are able to add additional spots.  As we were taken quite by surprise at the interest around this box, I want to offer an opportunity to gift a spot for anyone who did not have the chance to sign up

And now for the giveaway!  To enter to win a Vintage Halloween Limited Edition Mystery Box for yourself, or to give to a friend:

  • Please be a follower or email subscriber of our blog if possible (link can be found in the sidebar)
  • Leave a comment and tell us which Halloween patterns are on your list to stitch this year (+1 entry)
  • Share on your blog or social media, and be sure to tag us or let us know in the comments (+5 entries)
The drawing will be Saturday, July 14 at noon CST.

Thank you, and happy stitching!

Angela

  1. That is very generous of you! I absolutely love stitching for Halloween and have lots of projects that I enjoy working on. My absolute favorite is Cackle by Raise the Roof Designs. I did follow your blog, but it registered me under my YouTube channel name (the House of Floss & Fluff), darn technically! 😂. I will definitely mention your giveaway on my blog! ( craftingpaws.blogspot.com )
