I do not have a Instagram account but I do a lot of embroidery as well as tapestries and would love to teach my grandchildren so that they can carry on the tradition.

I’d love to do a hoop wall hanging

pas insta ! je finirais ma veste en jean

I dont have instagram but i love embroidery and i would keep it all for myself! ha ha

If i won, the thread would go to my mum and i would like to create a small family tree wallhanging, using the lovely colours for different ancestors!

I would like to win this gift so that I could have something new to learn and a fun activity to do with my brother and his girlfriend because she loves to cross stitch and it would be a fun activity for us to do together!

I would use the beautiful metallic thread to crochet lovely earrings! And the kit would be a wonderful wedding gift for my cousins!! I do not have an Instagram account!

No Instagram but would still like to win!

No Instagram. I'd love to use the metallic thread to add fancy embellishments to my Halloween costumes!

I would gift this to my Aunt. I have not yet learned cross stitch, but she loves it. Maybe one day I'll learn! I do not have Instagram.
