★ CONTEST WINNERS ★


I am extremely pleased to announce the WINNERS of the Sublime Stitching Combo Contest! Hoo boy- it was not an easy task. And, I mean that. This has been really tough to judge, seeing all the great work that was done! You people can embroider. A lot. And you were kinda scaring me with your awesomeness. 

There were 60 entries in all to the contest, and the creativity, inspiration and hard work was truly incredible. I saw so many projects I admired for their humor, hard work and obvious love for stitching. How I wish I could have picked them all! I couldn't possibly! So I asked these kind folks to be your judges instead! Phew.


Thanks go to: Natalie Zee Drieu, Editor-in-chief of Craft ~ Keith Carallo of Fred Flare ~ Jamie Chalmers, aka Mr. XStitch
