Fabric Giveaway!

Ok, you all know how I enjoy test dying fabric. Usually, I use linen or evenweaves, as these are what I like to stitch on. I’m not a huge fan of using Aida. However, I had some pieces of Aida handy when I was in a creative mood, so I came up with these two:


Now, since there is a 98% chance that I will never stitch on this fabric myself, I am offering it up as a free gift! Think of this as a raffle. Anyone who is interested in this fabric, send me a message at steffie.c@verizon.net. If you are unable to enter via e-mail, feel free to leave a comment here instead.  Only one ‘entry’ per person, lol! I will ‘draw’ a name at random on Saturday (the 19th), and the lucky person will receive both these fabrics.

Details on the fabric:
starburst: 14 count aida, 8″ x 9″
gradient purples: 14 count aida, 8.5″ x 14.5″

Please note, the aida is leftovers from kits where I swapped out fabric, and is fairly stiff.  

No limits on country of residence for etrants.  Just keep in mind that I’m in the US, so if a non-US person wins, it may take a bit longer for the fabric to arrive.  🙂


Update 11/19/11: The raffle is closed and a winner has been drawn.  Congratulations, Tanya W!  Please check your e-mail.  🙂  Everyone else, thank you for entering.  I will likely be holding other raffles in the future for more hand-dyed aida.  I have several blank pieces of it from old kits where I swapped fabrics, so keep an eye out for future chances!

    So, Stephanie, are you using the Aida to practice dying your own fabrics? Do you plan to dye your own evenweaves in the future?

      I do use the aida to practice when I don’t know what the result will be, since I have several spare pieces from kits. But I have dyed some evenweaves that I am already stitching on. The Lilly Couture pixie is done on one I dyed, as are the small Dragon Dreams designs I’ve done. And I dyed one that will feature the South Seas Mermaid that I plan to start in January. 🙂
