I reference my collection of Threads magazines A LOT. It would be so great to have a DVD instead of trying to thumb through a giant stack of *well loved* magazines!

Re: Book Giveaway: "Embroidered Textiles" by Sheila Paine

Crewelwork is my favorite kind of embroidery - I love the textured look the wool creates and the deep, earthy colors it comes in.
