Needle and ThREAD

LTS Contest Winner

Announcing the winner of the Loose Thread Stitchers / Stitch Your Heart Out Bookmark Challenge contest winner!

Did you send Colleen pictures of the bookmarks you stitched and donated? If so, the winner might be you.

The prize includes over $500 in stitching stash, including

  • 136 Skeins of Gentle Art Fibers
  • 12 pack of Olde Willow Stitchery Silk Threads
  • Au Fil des Reves Scissor Fob and Scissorkeep Kit
  • Heart in Hand Wool Whimsy Nicolas
  • Trail Creek Farm Nuts Stitch Here Kit
  • M Designs Floral Fun Kit
  • EZ Count Guideline Stitch Threads
  • Indigo Rose The Bee Charmer Pin Pillow Kit

And the winner is…Maryann Penner.

Hey, she’s one of our Extreme Stitchers! Which makes sense. The contest offered an entry for every bookmark stitched and donated, and Mare had crafted 42 at last count.

Congratulations, Mare! Enjoy your new stash.

And thank you, Colleen and Loose Thread Stitchers, for holding the contest and arranging the prize.

  1. Congratulations! What a stash!
    I found references to the contest, but couldn’t determine how to enter. (Clearly, Maryann is brighter than I am.)

  2. Wow, I can’t believe I won! I am thrilled because I never win anything. In fact in previous years I have forgotten to enter. I had not even looked what the prize was that is how convinced I was that I was not going to win anything. OMG, what a super gift to have won. A big thank you to those who provided such a generous gift.

    I will have to see if I can do twice as many for next year’s challenge. Anyone interested in seeing if they can do more? Nothing like a good challenge to stir more interest.


  3. Thanks for the contest. I personally know Mare and how much winning this contest means to her. She is beyond thrilled to awed beyond words and in tears of joy. If anyone deserves to win, it is her. She has been through many tough times. It was past time for something good happening to her. So I say thanks again. Hugs, Linda
