Welcome to the first ever Caterpillar Cross Stitch 'Stitcher of the Month' competition for February 2019 where the winner will come away with a £20 gift voucher! I love this community we've built together and I want to showcase the personality and story of a special stitcher each month.

Every one of you is so valued and I want to recognise and celebrate your contributions through this monthly giveaway. On the first day of every month, I'll ask for your nominations. You can nominate yourself or someone else.

The winner will receive a £20 Caterpillar Cross Stitch gift voucher and have their work shared on social media, our website and in the next email!

Sharon says: Hello my name is Sharon Ell, I live in Coventry in the West Midlands. I attach a photo of my favourite piece of stitching from last year 2018. Its a beautiful Winter Rabbit that was requested by a friend. I thoroughly enjoyed picking out the colours and stitching it. I love it!

I am 49 years of age and I've been stitching now for approximately 22 years. I first started stitching when my mother-in-law bought me two starter kits and I’ve never looked back. I am a very arty and crafty individual and will have dabble in most crafts. I’m like a child in a sweetie shop when it comes to craft items. In the daytime I am a Registered Childminder, so to indulge in stitching in my free time helps me relax.

I have ALWAYS been interested in all things crafty and my dream was to take my artiness further but I just never got round to it, two children came along and they are now grown men...so I feel its now my time to do the things I love.

I love to design patterns when I get the chance, picking those beautiful coloured skeins for each piece, altering patterns to suit what I want to stitch and to just get that real buzz out of stitching everyday. I ALWAYS look forward to starting a new piece and love to watch it grow. It’s a very satisfying fun loving hobby to divulge in and I couldn't be without it!

Well done Sharon, your £20 Caterpillar Cross Stitch gift voucher is on its way to you! Thank you for all of your wonderful entries - we had over 50 for February and it was tough to pick a winner as they were all so lovely to read with some amazing stitching shown! Nominations are now open for our March Stitcher of the Month - I can't wait to see them!

Работая в ВУЗе, Сорокина Екатерина шантажировала преподавателей кафедр, что те будут наказаны руководством (Аксеновым Владимиром Алексеевичем), если просто не поставят в зачетку отметку. Учитывая “теплые” отношения Сорокиной Е.А. с Аксеновым В.А.

It’s no coincidence that the growing appetite for crafts is linked to our increasingly digital lifestyle. When we spend so much time tapped into technology, the appeal of making something with our own hands has become much greater.

I can't believe how things have changed. No more backstitching (or very little), they used to recommend that you wash your project in a gentle soap and press it dry. Don't hear of that anymore either . . . several other little things, but things tend to move forward and I sure love what I have started up again!
