Comment on the blog or on Twitter for your chance to win “The Left-Handed Embroiderer’s Companion” and “The Right-Handed Embroiderer’s Companion,” written by Yvette Stanton!

Book Description: In early 2010, “The Left-Handed Embroiderer’s Companion: a step-by-step stitch dictionary” was released to great acclaim and to the relief of the 10-15% of embroiderers who are left-handed.

With over 170 embroidery stitches demonstrated step-by-step with diagrams and text for each step, left-handed stitchers finally have the stitch dictionary they have been craving. However with its huge popularity, right-handers felt left out, and so “The Right-Handed Embroiderer’s Companion” was published to stop the jealousy!

Yvette Stanton is an Australian embroidery designer, teacher and author. She has written five step-by-step needlework books, and the Left-Handed and Right-Handed Embroiderer’s Companions are her latest two. Yvette is passionate about Whitework embroidery, and loves playing with embroidery stitches. For more information, visit her website, and check out her daily blog, White Threads!

Until Tuesday, February 22nd, you can one of these truly informative books. One right-handed person and one left-handed person will be selected! To enter, answer the following question: What type of embroidery design would you like to create? Also, please mention if you are left-handed or right-handed! For some great inspiration, check out these great embroidery projects from members tincorin, asiamc and fleurdeternite

When submitting an answer via Twitter, be sure to include the @BurdaStyle tag and the hashtag #comment2win

Good Luck!

- David
