Thread + Sampler = Giveaway!

If you are a Sampler Subscriber, you probably know by now how beautiful Dyedfibers threads are.  In a season of color popping up everywhere, these threads are leading the parade.    Everybody got a sample of these beautiful, color saturated Tencel perle threads in the subscription mailings last month. My mom stitched her sample using them, and I love the shiny smooth quality of the stitches.   Maybe some of you have used them too?  Show them off in the Flickr group!

Kathy aka DyedFiber, has generously agreed to giveaway a collection of four skeins to one lucky commenter.  I'm throwing in one of the new Color Wheel samplers too, since they seem to be a perfect match.



I asked Kathy how she got started dyeing these beautiful embroidery threads.....
"I began dyeing fabric to use in the Quilt Journal Project.  It was a natural progression to try and dye perle cotton along with the fabric so I would have embroidery thread that would coordinate with the fabric to use for embellishment.  Dyeing the little skeins of thread is more fun than dyeing fabric, it's a lot of color in a little bit of fiber and I just love it!" 


To enter to win four skeins of tencel perle thread and one Color Wheel Sampler, leave a comment here letting me know what your favorite color is.  Want to up your chances?  Leave another separate comment linking to your work in progress Dropcloth sampler on the Dropcloth Flickr Group. Still more?  Pin one of the pictures from this post and leave a link to your Pinterest board in a separate comment.   


Please note: Comments are open to everyone- each person can enter up to three times (see rules above).  Contest will end on Tuesday, April 9th at midnight, and I will choose a winner at random the next morning and announce it here on the blog.  Make sure your EMAIL is included in the comment so that if you win I can be in touch with you!

  1. My favorite color is turquoise. In Middle Eastern cultures, it is thought to ward off negativity. My engagement ring has a large, heart-shaped turquoise stone and I even made that the color of my wedding veil!

  3. When asked, my answer is usually green but my daughter pointed out that I own an awful lot of things in a dark teal or peacock color. I guess I have to go with that, at least until my preference changes again!

  48. How is it possible to choose one favourite colour? I find my favourite changes with whatever is in front of me!!! I suppose if forced to choose it would be red, or maybe turquoise. But if we are talking flowers then I think it has to be yellow. Ah colour! I love it!

  82. Looks like another turquoise lover on-board! It reminds of the ocean in my beloved Southern California, that I have missed dearly since we moved.

    Seeing how I have missed a gajillion opportunities to take a class with you Rebecca (including this past Saturday at the NYPL) since something always came up, I am happy for the chance to win this beautiful giveaway.
