2013 Spring Contest!

Even though winter is still hovering in my neck of the woods here in Idaho, it's still time for three things: First,  it's time for a new contest, second, it's time to show off your creativity, and third, it's time to look forward to EASTER and SPRING!  I couldn't think of a better way to combine all those wonderful things than to start my "2013 Spring Contest", and I encourage you to enter. The winner will receive a bundle containing FOUR beautiful pieces of hand-dyed wool (each piece is approximately 6-7" wide and 16-18" long), and they are in wonderful butternut browns . . .

Just email me a picture of your favorite SPRING or EASTER-THEMED project you personally made (it does not have to be your own pattern and it can be hooked rugs, quilts, dolls, painted items, etc). I'll post it to my Facebook page, tally up all the "LIKES" or "COMMENTS" on each photo, and ANNOUNCE THE WINNER ON MARCH 25!  To see the current entries, just visit my "2013 Spring Contest" on my Facebook album page at Enter and win some wool!

THE AMERICAN PIE BIRTHDAY CLUB HAS CHANGED, AND IT'S FOR THE BETTER!  I've yacked before about the Birthday Club and the great benefits you'll get when you join, and the response has been overwhelming!  I've added a new 10% off coupon when you join, and here's the new details:
  • It's free to join (always and forever).
  • You get an INSTANT COUPON FOR 10% OFF everything on my website.
  • When your birthday time comes around, you'll receive a SPECIAL COUPON GOOD FOR 25% OFF all during your birthday month.
  • You are automatically entered in current and future contest to WIN FREE PATTERNS AND OTHER PRIZES!
  • You are always FIRST TO KNOW when new patterns are available so you can take advantage of special sales and discounts.
Just click here, enter your name and email address (yes, it's confidential) and in a few seconds you'll be a member.  I hope you'll join!

WHAT'S COMING UP?  I'll shortly have new printable tutorials for those of you who love rug hooking, from how to cut your own wool, to figuring yardage for your project, to how to get your loops evenly spaced and of a consistent height.  I'll also have a brand new pattern to show you (the first part of next week) and I'm cooking up a tutorial on dyeing fabric and wool with Kool Aid!

Until next time, Happy Stitchin'!  xoxo--Melanie
