Rainbow of Stitches Contest!

A Rainbow of Stitches: Embroidery and Cross-Stitch Basics Plus More Than 1,000 Motifs and 80 Project Ideas
So, just in case you hadn't figured it out by now, with my rather obvious hinting... we're having a contest! Pam received a complimentary copy of Rainbow of Stitches and we are dying to share it with you. :)

Instead of just giving it away randomly, we decided to celebrate the rainbow of colors and create a contest you can enter in 9 different categories!

The Prizes
We'll select a winner in each of the 9 categories - which means... 9 prizes!

9 Category Winners:
  • Each category pick will get a sweet prize that could include: embroidery floss, pdf patterns, vintage patterns, fat quarters, blank tea towels or pillowcases.
  • Also, each of the 9 winners will be featured here on Feeling Stitchy with a brief interview.

Finally, YOU get to vote to choose the Grand Prize winner, who will receive:

How To Enter
Want to enter? It's easy! Join the Rainbow of Stitches Contest Group, and add your entries.
You can enter in as many categories, as many times as you like!

The Rules
Entries must be hand-embroidered by you.
Can be any size and on anything - handkerchief, pillowcase, clothing, quilt, pillow, atc, etc.
Works don't have to be all one color, but they should have one dominant color or theme. Have fun with it!

May 1 - 31: We'll accept submissions
June 5 - 13: 9 category winners featured on Feeling Stitchy
June 13 - 15: You vote for Grand Prize Winner
June 16: Winner announced!

Are you ready to get stitching? Can't wait to see what you create!!!

Hi, I'm floresita, editor of Feeling Stitchy. I'm an avid stitcher, knitter, and crafter. You can see more of my stitching on Instagram and my blog. My vintage transfer collection is on Vintage Transfer Finds.

Feel free to email me with any ideas for the blog!


  1. ooh, how exciting! and thank you for posting my little French knot brooch in your mosaic :))

  2. Can they be previously stitched items, or do they need to be completed just for this contest?

  3. Yes, they can be previously stitched!

  4. fun. i can't wait to see what people come up with!

  5. I haven't used my flicker in ages, but I'm using it now! How fun!

  6. Oh my heavens! What a clever contest!

  7. This is a fabby contest, I have an idea that I can't wait to start... might even have to learn some new embroidery stitches to do it too! :D I wonder which will be the most popular colour to be entered?
    Best wishes

  8. I have to ask: is this open to Europeans ? I'm French, but I'd love to enter ! (if I can finish my piece in time, otherwise this is just a rhetorical question)

  9. Do we still have to have possession of the item we stitched? I have a picture of a couple of items that I gave away as a gifts. Does that picture qualify? *crosses fingers*

  10. I'm too excited! I want to see the winners and their fabulous works of art!
