Latest News for Young Embroiderers
A Series of Special Projects for our Members - and a chance to win a free book!
By kind permission of Search Press, we have been allowed to share some special projects with our members. Search Press publish all those exciting books on stitch, patchwork and all sorts of creative crafts.
They have allowed Chief Stitch to dip into their books and choose a project for you to make each month. You will have to be quick as the project will only be on the website for one month and then it will be replaced by another project. This will happen each month and the first person to put a picture of their project on the website will receive a FREE copy of the book that contains that project. Our second project is now here for you to try. Click here to get details of the instructions and pattern for a cute Owl Pincushion by Christa Rolf.
What's on the Bookshelf?
In addition to our new Special Projects series, we also have a new page on the website under the News tab called "What's on the Bookshelf?" This is where you will see information and reviews by Chief Stitch of some of the latest stitching, embroidery and craft related books. You will see illustrations from inside the books too - which are very enticing. Click here to read the first set of reviews.
