    Thanks for the great series. I’m really enjoying embroidery lately especially since it is so portable. I love the transfer tips.

  2. Nina says:

    I hope I’m not to late to enter

  3. LJ says:

    Choose a favorite?! Why, that’s like picking your favorite fabric print, or your favorite book! However, anytime I can find a better way to make a nicer French knot, I’m happy. It’s always been a hard stitch for me, for some reason. This is definitely a must-keep foundation series. Thank you!

  4. Darla says:

    I enjoyed all videos. Nice, clear refresher.Dar

  5. Kim says:

    The final post was the best- a complete summary with all the videos in one location. Thank you!

  6. Sandra says:

    Once again, Canadians are left out. Although I presume our paid online orders will be accepted.

  7. Alison in MD says:

    I liked the tools post because it mentioned embroidering things you already own, such as clothes. Unfortunately I haven’t made anything yet, but winning this would help!

  8. Lindsay H says:

    My favorite is the post about sewing French knots! I’ve been embroidering for a while and for some reason they always elude me. I’m cautiously optimistic with her tips I may finally get the hang of it though!

  9. Chris says:

    I just found YOU. Anxious to try this out. It has been a while since I ‘created’ and will get on to it again tonight. Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. jenny says:

    what a beautiful set. thanks for a chance.

  11. Kerry Ryan says:

    My favorite was the French knot. I haven’t done any of the patterns yet. I do love the 12 wt Sulky petites. They stitch up beautifully.

  12. Sunshine says:

    Hello Amy, Thank you so much for the very informative video series! I watched all of them. I am an experienced embroider and know how to sew the stitches, however, your method is very different from the ones that I was taught. I liked the first two videos the best, because I did not know that silky solvy had the stick and stitch brand. A few months ago I discovered the silky solvy for dark fabrics and have used it and love it. I am excited to learn about your thread and denim fabric for embroidery projects. The thread on a spool that does not need to be separated is a great idea and I can see how it not only saves time but will reduce the waste of the thread, not to mention the tangled mess embroidery floss makes. I am looking forward to trying your fabric and thread. I am currently working on a heart shaped box and was tying to find a design to embroider for the center embellishment, I think I will try a cross stitch heart for the center of the box. Thanks so much for the giveaway, I am sure the receiver will appreciate and enjoy the package~

  13. Bobbi says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win these terrific products. My favorite tutorial is the French knot, and I especially liked the look of the spaced outline knots.

  14. Jamie S says:

    The first video on the new thread that’s on a spool rather than in a tangled skein was really helpful. I also liked the daisy chain video. Thanks.

  15. Carrie says:

    This is great. I will store this page so I will have it for the future. Will be working on kitchen towels for myself and to use as gifts

  16. Angela Short says:

    Thanks for all the info and pretty things! I think embroidery is so awesome. To be honest I’m new to all this and I’m just getting started. Videos are so very helpful. Thanks for them. I love them all, can’t pick a favorite.

  17. Lori B says:

    I adored the veggie cloths. Such a sweet project for the kitchen.

  18. kristin says:

    the tutorial on french knots was very helpful, I really struggle with those.

  19. Rebecca says:

    How fun!
    The transfer video was my favorite. I didn’t know about transfer pens, what a terrific product.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win the package of goodies!

    Rebecca

  20. Carrie T says:

    I enjoyed all the videos and will keep for future reference. I have been working on doing different flowers for our garden club. Just finished Lilly of the valley. Thank you for the giveaway

  21. Carrie says:

    All the videos were very helpful. I am going to save so I have to refer back to. I have been working on different flowers for my garden committee. Just finished Lilly of the valley

  22. Jamie says:

    The transfer methods episode was my favorite. I always wondered about that! I haven’t tried any embroidery but I’d like to.

  23. Jamie S says:

    The first video about thread was a relief to learn there is an alternative to the tangly ebridery skeins. I also liked the French knot tutorial as I always think I’m doing it wrong, and I was. Nice series. Thanks.

  24. RachelJ says:

    The lazy daisy tutorial was my favorite.

  25. Bridget says:

    I loved the first post. Realizing I could buy 12wt thread and it’s equal to 2strands of floss! But I also enjoyed the French knot video.

  26. Melissa Anthony says:

    All posts were helpful – glad to have learned so much. Thanks for the opportunity!

  27. Katie says:

    I love the cherry hand towel project in particular, but I love your approach to teaching the stitches with actual and adorable projects!

  28. Monique M says:

    I was so glad to see the foundation fabrics and transfer methods post. I have always felt simultaneously lost and overwhelmed with options for what things I need to choose and put together to give myself a successful base to stitch on. Any clarification is so appreciated!

  29. Lindsay Braud says:

    I like learning all the different stitches, especially the lazy daisy!

  30. Barbara Long says:

    how to selest the right needles !

  31. Staci Torgerson says:

    I’ve watched most of these with my youngest daughter as she’s wanting to start hand embroidering. I personally learned more with choosing the correct foundation. We would truly love to win and put all the goodies to use.

  32. Crystal Rose says:

    I have not made any of the projects this year. I’ve been super busy but I would like to get back into crafting a bit. I also don’t have a favorite. I do like any retro-style patterns though. I’m a sucker for ’50’s style.

  33. Kathy h says:

    I was happy to have the tutorial for the stem stitch. I really like the stitch and was glad to see the video which was so helpful.

  34. Priya says:

    Hello! I’m a relative beginner at sewing, and have made some basic items for home. However, I have never tried hand embroidery before, and would love to give it a go! I love the video series showing the different stitches and what the best use for each one is.

  35. Emily C says:

    My favorite was back stitch. Such a cute little gardener. I have not yet made any of the projects.

  36. Michelle DS says:

    My favorite was the french knot. It never occurred to me to use it for something other than flower centers! Very nice tutorial. I haven’t made in of the projects yet. But, I do like the peas and carrots pattern.

  37. Deb Enders says:

    My favorite? French knots, by far….the rest I’ve learned the hard way (teaching myself), but the knots always gave me trouble. Thank you for the tutorials and the chance to win! Deb E / Oregon

  38. Margaret says:

    It was great to see how to do a French knot. Photos are one thing, but to see a video of it was very helpful.

  39. Leslie Hart says:

    I love hand embroidery and how you can do it in short blocks of time while on the train, watching TV, waiting for someone to get ready. I’m still learning all of the stitches. I made the Vintage Garden Boy dishtowel — so cute!

  40. Pamela McCandless says:

    My favorite is the chain stitch, even after all these years, I still have issues with the chain stitch.
    BTW. I love the simplified vegetables.

  41. Cathy says:

    So many ideas and information – very inspiring to try a new craft

  42. Flicsha says:

    I liked the #3 vid. about steam stitching . That is the one I have the most trouble doing well. Love the Vegetable designs. Plan on doing them for my kitchen soon.

  43. Jules says:

    Hello! Thank you for this most helpful series. I learned how to do the lazy daisy stitch – how fun! It’s my favorite in this series. Just as valuable … is the information on getting started from thread to transfer material to fabric. Simply a brilliant find for a beginner! Thank you!

  44. Angel P says:

    Haven’t watched any of the videos yet, but I am planning on watching this weekend. I will definitely be making some of the projects. Can’t wait!

  45. Malea says:

    What pretty work! I love the French Knot video. My grandmother taught me to embroider when I was young, and I remember how the thread would always seem to unravel from my needle, leaving such sloppy little dots next to my grandma’s perfect ones! I definitely needed more practice!

  46. Denise Forrester says:

    I really enjoyed the “Foundation Fabrics and Transfer Methods”. I will most likely watch a few more times to make sure I get all the information. I’ve read instructions before but seeing really makes it sink in. Thanks.

  47. Cody says:

    Thank you for the stem stitch tutorial! I’ll be working on some embroidery with my 6th grade students soon (art teacher here), and will definitely be going back to this post!

  48. Marian Allen says:

    My favorite was the fabric post, so many to choose from. Thanks so much

  49. Amruta Tengase says:

    Love that Lazy Daisy stitches. Was hard to select one. I tried every stitches but not the design

  50. Debbie White says:

    I just finished watching the 6 videos in the Crossroads Collection. I liked all of them. I’m glad to have learned the proper procedures for the basic embroidery stitches. I remember many years ago as a child that I received a small embroidery kit in an Easter basket. My aunt and uncle were visiting and she helped me learn to do the embroidered piece. I’ve embroidered off and on for many years. It’s been quite awhile since I have done any but have recently became interested again. I especially liked the first video because I learned that I could use sewing thread just the same as embroidery floss for projects. I understood Amy to say that it didn’t knot up the way floss so easily does. I haven’t done any of the projects since I just found about this series a day or so ago. Thanks for the opportunity to enter this giveaway!

  51. Marci says:

    I learned a new way to do the chain stitch…thank you. I can’t wait to try it.

  52. Lisa in CA says:

    I liked the lazy daisy post — that stitch was the hardest to learn when I was a teenager first trying this embroidery stuff. I haven’t made any projects yet but the peas & carrots are on my list!

  53. Doris says:

    I have always struggled with the french knot. Thanks for helping me to master it – after 40 years!!

  54. Tonia Jeffery says:

    I enjoyed learning the different stitches.

  55. BONNIE ELLIS says:

    I liked the post about the important embroidery tools! I smiled thinking about the ’70’s, when I embroidered all over my clothing!

  56. Bev Gunn says:

    They all were a great review as I am just getting back into embroidery at this time.

  57. Patti McGarry says:

    I thought that the video about transfer methods was most informative. I really enjoyed this series!

  58. Lee in MI says:

    I liked the transfer methods post – I have not made any of the projects yet! thanks!!

  59. Marcia Kerstetter says:

    I really enjoyed the embroider series. I have been embroidery for a number of years, but gained new knowledge from your detailed information. The pattern I enjoyed working on most was Sweet Cherries, particularly because it will go so well with my kitchen valence which have a very simular cherry border on them.

  60. Kathy says:

    I liked the post where you made the peas and carrots motif. I have not made anything yet.

  61. Toni in MA says:

    French knots are so tricky. Loved the tutorial!

  62. Ramona says:

    My favorite was the chain stitch as the cherry was my favorite design. I have not had a chance yet to make the cherry but plan on making it on tea towels for my kitchen.

  63. Laura says:

    I love the peas and carrots! 🙂

  64. Joan says:

    The tutorials are very helpful. I liked the sewing+quilting tips.
    Joan

  65. Marilyn says:

    My favorite is the slow sewing. I have embroidered since I was very young.
    Marilyn

  66. Marion says:

    I liked the sewing+quilt tips. Embroidery is something I have done since my youth.
    Marion

  67. Amy H says:

    I enjoyed the chain stitch tutorial most. I got into embroidery about a year ago but haven’t used that stitch. I haven’t done any of these projects…yet! I love the vintage designs you showcased.

  68. I especially liked learning about transfer methods.

  69. Marilyn says:

    My favorite is the peas and carrots design.

  70. Donnell Carlson says:

    My favorite list was the one about needles and thread. I struggle with finding appropriate needles for embroidery in my 4-6th grade classroom. They are often lost and when I replace them, I can never seem the find the same kind of the right kind. I need needles that my students can use without my assistance since I am teaching lessons in small groups on all curriculum during the school day. That post helped me to get myself more organized. Thank you.

  71. Barbara says:

    Transfer Methods I have not done any embroidery for years but this would be a good way to start.

  72. Sandy Ross says:

    i really like the video about fabrics and transfer methods. Things have changed a lot since i embroidered my jeans years ago!

  73. Ellen r says:

    Thank you for these awesome resources…the videos are so helpcul.

  74. patti says:

    I just love the colors of the threads.

  75. JANET KENNEDY says:

    hard to choose they are all good, I did like the lazy daisy stitch
    Amy is an excellent teacher, makes you eager to start
    thank you

  76. Anne Beier says:

    I just began with embroidery. I am working on a sampler of all different kinds of stitches I am learning from your tutorials. Thanks for the opportunity, acbeier71@gmail.com

  77. amy says:

    I was just thinking of getting back into this… what a great motivator!

  78. Lori says:

    I embroidered frequently when I was a child, but haven’t for many years. Watching this video makes me want to try it again!

  79. Leslie King says:

    My mother, who passed away in September, took up embroidery in her retirement. I am fortunate enough to have bibs she made for my children as well as some Christmas tea towels. How I wish there had been time for her to teach me! I think embroidery might be the relaxing night-time thing I’m looking for. Maybe I can make some towels to go along with those from my mother 🙂

  80. Carol says:

    It is a great and informative series that promotes needlework. That’s what I like best. Helping people find their creative balance in perhaps a new needlecraft they have never tried. Personally, I like the transfer information.

  81. Susan R Swanson says:

    Thank you for having this giveaway! My favorite post has to be the lazy daisy, daisies are my absolute favorite flower and they’re what I draw if I’m doodling.

  82. Ann Simmons says:

    I loved the video on the cherries. We are in a cherry mood! Thanks so much for the great instruction and free patterns And the chance to win!!

  83. Dee says:

    This looks like so much fun!
    Good luck to everyone!

  84. Alicia says:

    Enjoyed learning g about the sulky 12 weight thread on a spool. Will have to try it. Thanks for the chance.

  85. Chris says:

    The French Knot was a great one because my French Knots are never very good.

  86. Marilyn says:

    The carrots and peas embroidery is my favorite! The little girl is a close second.

  87. Foundations, transfers and tool is my favorite besides this one with a giveaway. I always wanted to learn but had the problem try to get the pattern on the fabric! I have bookmarked so I can get back to The videos again to watch them over! Great giveaway I would love to win

  88. Elizabeth says:

    Really loved this series and hope there are more! Loved the review of various stitches as well as learning about Sulky Stick-n-Stitch. Look forward to checking out Amy’s book – Vintage Notions as well.

  89. Barb K. says:

    I like the “Lazy Daisy” video because I like the beautiful flowers made with the stitch. I haven’t embroidered recently, but I do have an embroidered quilt block quilt started and as a grade schooler, used to embroider tea towels for church rummage sale–I remember embroidering the tea towel to the lap of my dress for a little ways till I realized what I was doing!!

  90. Kit says:

    I enjoyed the stitch videos!

  91. Renea Yarolim says:

    Thanks for the most generous giveaway. I have a difficult time in deciding on what thread to use for different projects.

  92. Dianne says:

    I forgot to say I’m currently working on the Garden Boy pattern.

  93. Kathy Cummings says:

    I love the back stitcheck tutorial . I haven’t yet completed a design !
    Thank you .

  94. Dianne says:

    My favorite was the Fabric and Transfer Methods. I have always had a problem with
    transferring and now I’m more confident. Thank you Amy!

  95. Susan says:

    My favorite post was the first one about needles and threads. I had never heard of nor considered using thread. I plan on trying this out, but haven’t completed any of the projects. I am working on the Sweet Cherries as I am a Michigander.

  96. Ginger says:

    My favorite was the peas and carrots design

  97. Becky Lax says:

    I didn’t have just one favorite, I liked them all. A very nice comprehensive series!

  98. Monica R says:

    Both of the embroidery basics video.

  99. Mary Hoagland says:

    Love the French knot demonstration. I always need a refresher on that one when it’s been awhile!

  100. Carol W says:

    Back stitch tutorial

  101. Ruth L says:

    Loved the post on choosing the right thread and needle for the project! I’m not sure I ever paid much attention to my needles in the past, so this was helpful. I haven’t started any of the projects yet, but plan to in the next few weeks. Thank you for such a wonderful giveaway. I love that Sew Mama Sew highlights so many different types of crafts.

  102. Beth T. says:

    I’ve loved the entire series, because so many of the projects have reminded me of the embroidery my grandmother used to do. I inherited many of those linens and dish towels because my mother specifically chose to wrap the few items she wanted from Grandma’s house in the special towels when she flew home from Grandma’s funeral. The towels were special only because they were day-to-day items that Mom remembered. Now I use them daily and they make me happy every day, thinking of the two generations before me who did the same thing.

    Because of that, I think my favorite was the “Chain Stitch” entry, because I pinned it to remind myself to make some cherry dish towels. My own 3-generation towels are getting inevitably ragged, and I need to replace them; the towels in Amy’s example are so true to the ones we use that they’ll fit right in.

  103. My favorite video was the one that discussed transfer methods. I made the LOVE cross-stitch pattern for Valentines Day.

  104. kathyh says:

    What an awesome giveaway. Love to stitch.

  105. jennifer vacca says:

    I’ve really enjoyed the stitch tutorials. I’m thinking of some designs and hope to start soon!

  106. Sangeetha says:

    I love that the series was soup to nut. Between the videos and posts you covered materials, prep and stitches. Have not tried a project yet, but cannot wait to get started

  107. Christina says:

    The stitch videos were most helpful — I like lazy daisy best.

  108. Lyndalee says:

    My favorite blog is the “Crossroads Embroidery Series featuring the French Knot with Amy Barickman.

  109. Kellie Warren says:

    The chain stitch is my favorite video, though I liked them all because I am DYING to do this. I have my God mothers old tea towels, and I cherish them, she was my favorite person and I miss her dearly. I have wanted to learn how to do this for so many reasons for so long and recently bought a couple of towels. I don’t have any supplies yet, i am a quilter and I got side tracked but I can’t wait to get started. This is just what I need for lazy days on the sofa or in bed when I am not feeling well.

  110. mary says:

    I love the lazy Daisy stitch and the video was spot on. I have not embroidered lately but theses designs are on my to do list!
    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  111. Colleen Bell says:

    Since I teach hand embroidery to adults and teens, I am going to reference all the links on my handout. I hope that I can teach a class on embroidering Connecticut. That would be lots of fun. Thank you so much for a generous give-away. Someone is going to be very happy.

  112. Judy Sigsworth says:

    My favorites were the French knot and Lazy Daisy stitches. I’ve not yet applied what I learned to a project, but I did buy a package of towels to start a project soon. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  113. Montserrat Duran says:

    Lazy daisy was my favorite actually I’m using it in a pair os shoes

  114. Jessie Johnson says:

    Great giveaway! My favorite post was the cute cherries done in chain stitch. Haven’t had a chance to use the new skills yet, but enjoyed learning them.

  115. Allison says:

    I really enjoyed the in depth look at the different stitches.

  116. Laura says:

    The needle and thread post was my favorite. I’m a complete newbie and excited to get into embroidery this year!

  117. Andrea Harles says:

    The needle and thread basics were very helpful. A topic often not considered

  118. Sarah J says:

    I haven’t made any of the projects yet, but I used the french knot instructions for eyes on a little stuffie! I would love to try more embroidery!

  119. Jane Drewel says:

    The kitchen towels are great. They remind me of my Mom. I lost my mother recently and did not have her towels, so I want to make some in her honor.

  120. kris says:

    All of the series was very informative. The one on French knots I found interesting as I was able to do them pretty well as a kid but for some reason can not make them evenly now. I am a visual learner so the videos are great.

  121. Vicki H says:

    I liked learning the basic stitches and hope to master them.

  122. Candi says:

    Wow! What a great give-away! I’d love to win this. My favorite video was Learn the Chain Stitch. Good luck to everyone.

  123. Heidi Devereaux says:

    French Knots have always been a challenge for me so this was really helpful!

  124. carley says:

    French knots are my favorite. My grandkids love the texture of hand embroidery!

  125. Linda Fleming says:

    I’ve loved all of the series! Each of the lessons has been a great refresher for me as I used to embroider many years ago! I always found the French Knot stitch to be a challenge – but Amy makes it look easy.

  126. Stacy says:

    I like the Love pattern. So simple yet pretty.

  127. Love the Youtube embroidery series–really well done and the cutest patterns…
    hugs, Julierose

  128. Kylie C says:

    I liked Amy Barickman’s post. The Peas & Carrots pattern is super cute (especially on that bib) plus the example of the use of the lazy daisy stitch for the wheat ears is impressive. I haven’t made any of the patterns yet but they are on my list for mother’s day gifts this year.

  129. Laura Brown says:

    Even as a seasoned embroiderer, the basics are always a good refresher! The most helpful was the french knot.

  130. Karen A says:

    I liked the French knot video because that was my favorite pattern. All the videos were well done and a good refresher for me to go over all the stitches.

  131. Linda Cejnar says:

    My favorite post was about the stem stitch. I always have trouble with this for some reason and the directions helped me a great deal. I am in the process of making a small stitchery with a couple of birds and flowers on it in redwork. Thank you for all the educational posts and videos!

  132. Sue says:

    I liked the first two posts, learning of the existence of the spooled Crossroads thread and about the Stick n Stitch product. Having embroidered for years, the thread on a spool to me was one of those “Why didn’t someone do this AGES ago?” moments. It’s so much tidier and easier to work with. I’m hoping that more stores start carrying it.

  133. Diane Beavers says:

    Learning the stem stitch. It will be fun to make my own tomato and celery motifs….soon. Thankyou.

  134. Lynda H says:

    I really don’t have a favorite in the series. My grandmother taught me to embroidery in 60-61 when I lived with her for a year. Once I left I had no inspiration to continue stitching. Now that I am older and have nothing but time on my hands, your posts have inspired me to pick up the needle and threads and start over – its almost like riding a bike but getting the rhythm down is the true test. When my grandmother checked my work she always looked at the back – in her world, the back had to be just as neat and concise as the front. You can always test the size of your stitches from the backs of your projects. looking forward to some quality stitching time – thanks for the inspiration.

  135. Jill Werschin says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed all the creative ideas and used the basic stitches on a tunic. It’s now my favorite.

  136. Sandy Allen says:

    I learned so much from the stem stitch post and video. I learned I have been doing it wrong the whole time I have been embroidering! I have not made any of the projects yet.

  137. This has been a great series with wonderful tips, tutorials and great inspiration. Total #CreativeGoodness. Difficult to pick my favorite post, but the LOVE project has definitely inspired me to learn to stitch. I just need to buy all my supplies, but plan to do so soon.

  138. ELAINE GREGORY says:

    I’m a sucker for learning new embroidery stitches. I think using different stitches makes my hand embroidery projects over the top. Thanks for this informative series. I love checking out the “tools of the trade” too.

  139. Amy says:

    I love embroidered dish cloths!!!

  140. laurie says:

    The lazy daisy has long been one of my favorite stitches. These posts all reminded me of how much I enjoy hand needlework. I really need to get back to it. Thanks for the inspiration.

  141. Ann Oswald says:

    Thank you for post about foundations and transferring. I think that what stops me more from starting a project, is that I don’t have the confidence to get started. That post helped and I’m excited to try some new projects!

  142. Jen Newby says:

    Thanks for the chance! I just started doing hand embroidery. I missed those videos so I’m off to watch them now! I only know the back stitch so I’m ready to learn some more!

    The French knot tutorial was my favorite. I stink at it, So hopefully next time, I won’t screw it up. Summertime is my time to make,things, so any projects need to wait until then.

    I love hand embroidery! The foundations and fabric transfer was great.

  158. Linda says:

    I love this series. The one I learned the most from and am most excited about is the video on needles and thread.

    I never knew spoil thread could be embroidered with!

    Life changing!!! I’ve embroidered thing in past that fade when washed

    Have not made project in series yet but will definitely be making embroidered denim purse. With spoil thread!

    Thanks for series

  160. Kristine Clay says:

    What a generous giveaway! I loved the lazy daisy episode with the baby bibs. I made some bibs for my first daughter and spent way too long doing counted cross stitch. These embroidery patterns are so much more quick and doable!

    I loved the Lazy Daisy post, because the peas and carrots pattern is my favorite!

  163. Linda says:

    Thanks for this series of videos. I’ve done crossstitch before but never real embroidery. This has really been fun to learn. Thanks for the free patterns.

  164. This is a great series! I particularly appreciated the Foundation Fabrics and Transfer Methods video as it gave me some great tips and the confidence to try some new techniques and products. I have started some Love fingertip towels as thank you gifts!

  165. Anne Marie says:

    My favorite video was the french knot as I find this difficult to do and to do well. I have not made any projects yet but they are on my to do list!!

  166. Martha M says:

    The chain stitch series. Love the cherries!

  167. Baa says:

    I could never get my lazy Daisy stitches quite right until now. Thank you for the quick videos showing this & the other stitches. So much better for me to see them in person vs a book. I made a pillow with the little child on it

  168. RuthB says:

    My favorite was the chain stitch. I would love to do a couple of the states from Land that I Love. I like the way the chain stitch makes a bolder line for outlining. Thanks for the help!
