Sublime Floss Giveaway!

So I guess you have already heard the buzz about the new Sublime Stitching Embroidery Floss? Well if not then you are missing out, as the very talented Jenny Hart now has her own line of embroidery floss! The embroidery floss comes in a range of luscious colours and are packaged in palettes of pre-selected colours with tantalising names, for example 'Fruit Salad', 'Breakdance', 'Flowerbox' etc. There are nine colour palettes in total and each palette contains 7 x 8.75 yd (8m) skeins of the finest quality, 100% cotton, six-stranded floss. Smooth, shiny and colorfast each with their own name! No boring numbers!

We are having a giveaway on the HEN Community so if you would like to test out the new Sublime Floss please click here and leave a comment by 8th November! Don't leave a comment on this blog post as you won't be entered. We have 5 palettes to giveaway and 5 winners will be picked at random on the above date!

Welcome to our New Community Blog!

Welcome to the new and official Hand Embroidery Network Community Blog! I have decided to change us over from the tumblr platform as Blogger is so much easier to use and follow!

On this blog you will find postings about the members of the HEN Community, facebook page, flickr group and HEN Etsy team. It will also be the place to learn more about hand embroidery, exhibitions, challenges, giveaways etc. So please boomark this page or follow us!

If you don't know what the Hand Embroidery Network is, we are an online community of contemporary embroidery artists and embroiderers! We have a community photo gallery, discussion forum, groups on embroidery techniques and lots more, so if you love hand embroidery as much as we do why not come and join us!
