Another Stencil Set Giveaway!!


As promised, we are back for another giveaway of this wonderful new tool.  You may remember that CQ and stitching guru Sharon Boggon (and CQI member extraordinaire) had generously donated stencils to the group for giveaway.  Last month we gave away the first set, and now we are giving away the second to some lucky CQI Blog Reader!

These clever stencils are made of solid plastic and are clear so that marking seams for embroidery is a cinch. Sharon has also written a very thorough guide for these stencils, filled with examples and tips for using them. The creative possibilities are endless!

You can read more about Sharon`s stencils here on her blog:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
The giveaway rules are exactly the same as last time: just leave a comment below! Yep, it’s that easy!   

Some of the “fine print”:
1. Limit one comment per person. 
2. Make sure your name links to your email address or that you include it in your comment.  Anonymous comments with no contact information will be disqualified.
3. International entries welcome!!

On Wednesday, August 21 we will draw for a winner and announce it here on the blog. We will also contact the winner personally to arrange mailing. 

So, be sure to enter by leaving a comment below!  And while you’re at it, why not visit Sharon’s blog Pintangle and give her a shout out for such a generous giveaway!!
