Name Sampler Design Winner 2014

Yesterday I chose my 2014 Name Sampler Design Competition winner!  That lucky person is Melonie Pickering from Sheffield here in the UK and she wins the first kit of her design.  Melonie’s entry said:

“I’d love my name done in the colours of the flowers used on a canal boat….and maybe a little canal boat and some roses…so lots of strong colours, ie, red, yellow, greens, etc…..”

It is such a unique suggestion and one that instantly got me excited about designing.  Most of my samplers are aimed at young children but this one is bound to become a popular choice for older generations and those with a passion for the gorgeous canal boats that chug up and down the canals here in the UK.

I have already designed a bespoke canal boat sampler for Melonie’s husband so this one for her will make a great matching pair!

I can’t wait to get designing this one so watch this space when it’s ready.

Name Sampler Competition Time

I love a good competition & this one is very popular with my customers and newsletter subscribers.  All you have to do is come up with a new design theme for my personalised Name Sampler range.  Here are the two previous winners:

WinnersBoth of these designs are now really popular with my customers & yours could be next…

All you have to do is tell me your idea in this quick survey and I will decide on a winner from all the entries received by midnight on Friday, 11th April 2014.  But while you are thinking about your amazing design remember:

  • it needs to be adaptable (for lots of different names)
  • it should differ from those already on my website
  • to give as much detail as you can – I struggle with one word entries!

If your idea fits all of these conditions then go ahead and enter.  The winner receives a full cross stitch kit personalized with the name of their choice before anyone else gets one – it’s worth £29.99 and I throw in free postage as well (wherever you are in the world!).

So, get thinking & good luck.
