Hey all it's time for another Embroidery Hoopla Swap! This is Round 9 and the theme is: The Not just thread round!


So put your thinking and fun crazy caps on because this is could totally be a really interesting swap: So you can embroidery or crossstitch in your hoop but you also have to incorporate something that isn't just thread into the hoopla. It doesn't have to be terribly complex, so begginers don't feel intimidated, you can do it!  

- Please only send your completed hoop. No extras.
- There are no hoop size requirements for this round
- Piece can be embroidered or cross-stitched.
- add one or more element that is not just embroidery thread

- Have fun!!

 PM organizer, co-organizers and partner when you send.

RECEIVING: PM organizer, co-organizers and partner when you receive. Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.) Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.

FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not) *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.*
