Giveaway: Anna Maria’s Needleworks Notebook


Anna Maria’s Needleworks Notebook is definitely a favorite of mine. I’ve had it opened on my coffee table just so I can gawk at it and think of all the pretty projects to start.

It’s filled with step-by-step guides, her favorite techniques, and beautiful patterns that will have you embroidering in no time. She includes almost every detail from the best fabrics to the exact color threads she used.

The Coloring Book Collection and patterns are perfect for getting the kids involved in the fun. While you’re following the patterns to stitch, they can use them to color in.

The Quilted Alphabet Blocks from the AlphaCute section make the prettiest keepsake for a new baby. Anna Maria gives you the complete instructions for how to make them, as well as the full alphabet pattern.

Now that you’ve heard all about this gem of a book, want to find out how to win a copy?

I would love to make one of those blocks! I have one my aunt made me as a baby and I would love to make one for my sons and for my niece. What a great keepsake!

I found some vintage cloth napkins in a lovely shade of purple at the thrift store and I really, really want to embroider some cute animals or flowers on them for my daughter’s tea set. It would make a great gift for her, but I don’t know how to embroider! I think Anna Maria’s book could make this birthday gift happen!

I want to embroider a map of the U.S. with the path we took when we moved across the country, and a heart in each city.

I would love to embroider curtains for our dining room. I have fine crocheted panels that my mother-in-law made for my husband many years ago that would go lovely sewn next to folk-inspired embroidery!

I love the look of old world embroidery on throw pillows. All the intricate flowers and beautiful birds. But those pillows cost about a million dollars, so I would love to make a pair for our couch!

Anything Christmas. I have so many Christmas ornaments that I could fill several trees. I now donate/share to friends and family.

My mom just gave me some dresses that I wore when I was a little girl. They were sewn for me by my great grandmother. They are so sweet and I would love to add my personal touch to them by embroidering the hems and collars. I hope that my daughter will love them as much as I did.

I have been working on designing and handpainting all the paper products for my sisters upcoming wedding. I’m currently working on ideas for the ‘welcome’ sign at the reception entrance. I would love to incorporate embroidery into the artwork. I love mixed media!

I would love to embroider a set of felt letters for the Greek alphabet. We’re a bilingual family and I just made my daughter a plush alphabet set for Christmas. It would be lovely to make her a Greek set as well!

I have a vintage cardigan that has seen some better days. I think a little embroidery could hide a few little stains!
