Since beginning my crazy quilting journey several different stitchers have recommended Robbie Fields’ Creative Stitchery Success Strips as useful tools when we talked about seam templates. About two months ago I finally got around to ordering a set. I’m so glad I did, and I have to wonder why I waited so long to order them. The price is very reasonable, and they make even spacing and height of many of the stitches used in seam treatments such a breeze.
After receiving my strips and working with them for just a short while I decided to host a giveaway featuring Robbie’s nifty little templates. When I told her about my idea Robbie graciously offered to supply two sets to be given away. One will be given away in two separate giveaways.
To put your name in the hat for a chance to win comment on this post and tell me what stitch you are struggling to master or what your favorite seam to use in a seam treatment is. My personal favorites are the Cretan stitch and the feather stitch. Both of these stitches can be marked beautifully with Robbie’s templates.
If you already have a set of Success Strips feel free to comment anyway…and pass the strips on to a novice you would like to encourage. OR you could even host blog giveaway or pay them forward to another stitcher.
Below is a heart I used the Creative Stitchery Success Strips to mark the seam treatments. The spacing and height of all my stitches are uniform thanks to the strips.
The giveaway of the first set will be open for comment until 12 noon on 8/15/13 central time. The winner will be announced in a blog post shortly after the giveaway ends. Anyone who answers my question in their reply will be given two chances to win. 🙂 It pays to read the post! 🙂
Disclaimer…I have no ownership interest in Creative Stitchery Success Strips. I am hosting this giveaway because I believe in the product and think all crazy quilters should own a set.
Until next time…
And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. John 17:26
