Design A Coaster Competition!

Ever fancied yourself as a designer? Here's your chance to show what you can do and win some yummy threads and fabric!

Design a coaster to fit in the below outline - you can submit your entry in .jpeg or pcstitch or patternmaker or PDF format (and probably other formats as long as I can find a programme to open them!)

Ideally you should stitch your design and list the materials used to create it, however this is not essential.

The design is 29 stitches x 29 stitches - let your creativity run free!

Entries will be posted in a poll on the board and for board members to pick their favourite design.

The winning design will then be posted on Cross Stitch Crazy as an exclusive free design - I will endeavour to convert it into pdf format so that most people can access it! (You will still retain the copyright of your design)

Please either post your entry to the board under the original post or email to and I will post it for you.

Closing date is 15th June 2011 and the vote for the winner will run until 30th June 2011

And here's the prize:

19" x 27" 28ct Country French Linen in Cafe au Lait (if you don't like linen, I'll find some evenweave or aida - though I don't have much aida)
Kate's Kloths - 165 Branches
DMC Variations - 4070
Weeks Dye Works - Ivy
Dragon Floss - 15 Lucky Dip
Weeks Dye Works - Bark

Kit A Freebie Exchange

is now underway. I have just sent the matches.

Participants have until 15th June to send to their partner a printed freebie and the materials needed to complete the design.

Have fun !

First of all there's a new blog to keep everyone in touch with what's happening...

Plans are to add current exchanges and RRs to the side bar - but sign ups are open for the Kit A Freebie exchange this is a bronze level swap so anyone that's completed a swap application can take part.

May is month long stitch-a-thon month
- keep posting your stitch and time counts :) and don't forget to share your progress photos at the end of the month

The board is slowly becoming busier again so there will be much more appearing here over coming weeks!

Who and Where?
