Giveaway: Donna Kooler’s 555 Christmas Cross Stitch Designs Book

donna-koolers-555-christmas-cross-stitchI’ve been destashing and adding things to the Etsy shop recently, when I realized we haven’t done a giveaway in quite a while.

So, here we go, an easy-peasy giveaway with different entry options for a copy of Donna Kooler’s 555 Christmas Cross Stitch Designs in new condition. This came out of my stash, but it’s only been opened a few times and didn’t even bend the binding. I stitched a handful of ornaments as gifts one year and it’s been in storage ever since. Now it needs a new stitchy home.

It’s My Birthday and I Have Some Gifts to Give Away!

starIt’s my 34th birthday today! And a strange birthday it’s shaping up to be. My husband was scheduled for a minor outpatient procedure yesterday, but then they called and bumped him to today. I firmly told him “this does not count as a birthday gift!” He’s having what most guys might refer to as the *snip snip* procedure today.

Anyway, I’d like to give away some gifts today! This will be a quick and easy contest, you can enter by using the contest widget below.

I’m giving away 5 free access passes to the 2013 Ornament Pattern Club! [Read more…]

Giveaway: Patterns of Murder – Needlecraft Mysteries by Monica Ferris

Patterns of Murder - Needlecraft Mysteries by Monica Ferris It’s time for another giveaway. I told you I was doing a bit of spring cleaning and I would have some fun giveaway items coming up. Let’s kick things off with some interesting reading material: Patterns of Murder by Monica Ferris. This book is the first three books in the Needlecraft Mysteries series all combined into one book for easy reading.

The first thing to note about this giveaway is that this is actually the copy of the book that I purchased a few years ago, so it is gently used. The cover is a little bit worn from being carried around in my bag and sitting on my bookshelf, but overall it is in very good condition. I know receiving a gently loved book isn’t as exciting for everyone as it is for me (I love books that other people love!) so there might just be a few little surprises tucked away in the package as well. After all, I am cleaning out the stash cabinet over here.

So about the book(s)…. Patterns of Murder includes the first three books in the series; Crewel World, Framed in Lace, and A Stitch in Time.

Stash Grab Bag Giveaway – Have you stitched Brushstroke Butterfly?

This giveaway is now closed

Brushstroke Butterfly is probably the most popular free cross stitch design here at Stitching the Night Away and I love getting emails and seeing blog posts with pictures of everyone’s finished projects. I’ve been trying to gather them up for the Gallery of Finished Cross Stitch projects here on the site, but there are quite a lot of them spread across the web so I am here to ask for a little help on this – and of course reward you for stitching and sharing the design as well!

So, here’s the deal. I want to see your finished Brushstroke Butterfly and I’ll compile the images into the Gallery here on STNA and add them to Flickr as well. For every finished image you send me you’ll be entered into a giveaway for this lovely stash grab bag, just put together today right out of my own personal stash cabinet!

  • an odd size cut of hand-dyed fabric (unlabeled peach and pink color from I forget where – oops!)
  • a fat 1/8th cut of 16 count hand-dyed aida fabric (Buttercup from Heaven Lee Creations)

How to enter:

Leave a comment with a link to your finished project picture on the web and I’ll go check it out! If you haven’t uploaded your image to the web that’s okay, you can send your picture as an email attachment to loretta@stitchingthenightaway.com and still be entered in the giveaway.

Only projects of completed Brushstroke Butterfly patterns count for this giveaway! (But, don’t fret, there’s still time to stitch it if you haven’t yet AND we’ll be doing this with other patterns in the future!)
