Wow we are talking 40 plus years ago I remember doing handkerchief corners with my grandmother

Diane Wiscott said...

I can't wait until this book comes out! I want to make every project in it! I've been hand embroidering since I was in elementary school, and I'm almost 60 years old. My first project was a little sampler that my mom framed for me. Thank you for the giveaway.

Karen M said...

Awesome!!!!I have been waiting for the book to come out since I first heard about it (and the call for embroidery artists). Super excited to see a copy in person. :) My first project was making an embroidered octopus when I was 8 years old and it was also my first sewing project (I was very proud and thrilled as I had glued or taped everything before). :)

Pamela said...

I love everything that Tula Pink does. This looks like so much fun. Thanks for sharing it. My first embroidery project was a daisy that I embroidered with yarn on burlap when I was a kid in a Brownie troop.

Melody Martin said...

Big big fan, It's a must have.. on my Christmas list... I've been good ;)

Brenda West said...

My first embroidery is still in the works. Been teaching myself - am doing a pillow case - one way to learn to get it perfected. Don't mind sleeping on a learner pillow case. Thanks

Betsy said...

My first hand embroidery project was a needle book. I received a nice book with different stitches so this would be great to practice!

antrisdale said...

My first project was when I was really young. I was given needle and thread and taught how to straight stitch my letters. I was young enough that I didn't really know my letters, either. :)

Alicia R. said...

My first hand embroidery project was a quilt label for the very first quilt I made. The quilt was for my little girl, who has great taste since she picked out Tula Pink fabric for her quilt! I brought her to a local quilt shop to pick out the fabric and since she loves cats she was immediately drawn to Tula Pink's Tabby Road.

My first hand embroidery project was a little robin in a workshop with Aneela Hoey. Cannot wait to do Tula embroideries,have the book on pre-order.

Megan said...

I'm sure I tried as a kid, but the first one I remember was as an adult. I bought a plain sewing box and wanted to jazz up the top by embroidering my name. I had no idea what I was doing - I just grabbed some embroidery floss and a curved needle (an upholstery needle, lol, but the surface was flat so it did actually help) and just went for it. My name is in no way centered, and I added a tulip which exacerbates the off-centered-ness, but I still use this box all the time and I love that it is personalized :)

My mother taught me how to embroider when I was about eight. I made a black cat and flowers, and we framed it. I still have it (somewhere!).

I would certainly love to win this book. I do hand embroidery and machine free-motion embroidery. Thanks for the chance to win

Terri's Beginning said...

I love Tula products. I commented yesterday but I don't see it on here. So please don't completely disqualify me if there are two posts. The first time & last time I did needle point work I was a teenager, I am turning 50 this month. My threads ended up in a knot on backside I'm looking forward to trying again, I've gained more confidence in crafts recently

Sharon Worster said...

I would LOVE to win! I've been embroidering my entire life. Thanks for the opportunity!!! xoxoxo Merry Christmas, Tula and everyone at Free Sprit #iamafreespirit

Liz Beth said...

I remember as a child doing white cross stitch on blue & white check fabric and making place mats. This book is beautiful and I can’t wait to buy it.

Tara Sieberg said...

I did some little flora piece years ago.... Would LOVE to get into it! These are gorgeous!

GranChris said...

I'm very old and as a child we were taught embroidery on towels and pillowcases. Every girl learned to do all the stitches.

Brigette Wootton said...

I did a Christmas stocking for my mother freshman year in college and have been hooked ever since. Ended up giving it to a sick friend over Christmas break. My mom understood.

boltandfrolic said...

I remember this owl hand puppet made of felt- maybe it was from when I was a Brownie? My mom, who was a troop leader, taught us the lazy-daisy and back stitches and more. Sweet memories, thank you xo

scottylover said...

The first embroidery project I remember was in girl scouts. It was a cross stitch of "When life gives you lemons" and I pulled the stitches too tight. The lemons were all puckered and the words were hard to read, but I loved it!

I was about ten when my Grandma took me to Ben Franklin's 5&10 where I chose blue embroidery floss and a cross stitch printed dresser topper. Great memories.

Minerva Huhn said...

i must have been a pre-schooler ... I loved hand stitching! the most important things I did are three little baby pillows between 1997 and 2007 💜

Sandra said...

Hi! I started stitching with my grand mother. She could do everything, she was so talented! It was 35 years ago. I was young at that time!! :) Now I'm doing embroidery with my daughter. Thank you for the game. Happy Holidays!!
