Year End Giveaway

This year we’ve talked a lot about embellishments whether they were new fibers or scraps and saw a lot of samples.  A little embellishment goes a long way.  So, I decided to go thru my embellishment stash and choose ten different types that someone may like to try.


There is approximately 10 grams of each.

Starting with the left hand row from the bottom up:  Ramie, Hemp, Milk Protein and Texas Mohair.

The second row:  Black Tussah, Yak and a multicolored silk Tussah.

The last row is Tencel, Mulberry silk and degummed cocoons.

Please note the Texas Mohair and the cocoons contain some VM.

I’ll mark each bag with the name and weight.

A couple of years ago I made a “sampler” book cover with a bunch of embellishments as a reference.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below by December 30.  The winner will be drawn by a random number generator and announced on January 6.

Good luck! Happy Holidays!
