Vintage Needlework Publications Giveaway

Enter to win one of these 3 lots of vintage needlework publications!

You’ve arrived at the annual NatCroMo Designer Blog Tour 2022! It’s a virtual celebration of National Crochet Month with new blog content daily throughout March, including featured crochet designers, pattern showcases, free patterns, coupons, discounts, giveaways, and more. This year’s theme is Pawprints on Our Hearts, so we’ll talk about our pets – furry, feathered, and scaly!

Our giveaway today is sponsored by our featured designer, Karen C.K. Ballard of Threadwinder. Each year Karen helps us celebrate NatCroMo by going through her extensive collection of vintage needlework publications and offering some as giveaways on our Crochetville NatCroMo Designer Blog Tour.

This year, Karen is giving away 3 lots of vintage publications, which are duplicates from her collection.

This giveaway is hosted right here on the Crochetville blog (enter below), and runs from March 31, 9:00 am through April 9, 9:00 pm Central Time. (Open to residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older.)

In support of her research, Karen collects old and vintage needlework publications, inevitably accumulating duplicates. Sometimes others donate publications to her, knowing that if she can’t add them to her collection, she will find them good homes. Rather than deal with the headaches of trying to sell them, Karen prefers to offer her duplicates to people whom she knows will appreciate them, the participants in Crochetville’s NatCroMo blog tour.

  1. I would really love to win Lot #3! Karen, that is very generous of you. I am fascinated by vintage crochet and knitting booklets.
