Karen C.K. Ballard of Threadwinder, our featured needlework historian and teacher, has generously sponsored this giveaway by donating and shipping these vintage crochet publications from her collection! One prize will go to each of three winners. (Keep scrolling down to enter the giveaway below! Shipping to the USA only.)
Karen says, “Prior to retiring from a career in computers, I started collecting needlework tools, books, and ephemera. Upon retirement, my collections, especially the printed materials, led me to study and redefine myself as a needlework historian. But in collecting published materials I frequently end up with duplicates in my collection. I like sharing these through Nat-Cro-Mo, with people whom I know will truly appreciate them.”
This year Karen is offering three great prizes:
- 1937 The National Crochet Bureau booklet Prize Winning Crochet Designs
- 1925 The Needlecraft Publishing Company’s Priscilla Centrepieces & Doilies Crochet Book
- 1852 Five large-format pages of W. Carter’s filet crochet charts (numbers 8, 12, 14, 16, & 18) Prize Exhibition Patterns
One prize will go to each of three winners. Enter the giveaway below! Entries open now through April 5, 2020, 11:30 PM CDT.
Congratulations to our winners!
