Ceramic Tatting Shuttle Giveaway


That's right bloggers! I am going to give away one of my hand crafted one of a kind ceramic tatting shuttles for FREE! How can you get in on this deal????

It's very simple; all you have to do is make sure you have a link to my blog on your page AND leave a comment here letting me know. That's it!

I have noticed that new tatting blogs are popping up almost daily and I thought this might be a good way for me to keep up.

If you check my blog roll to the right you'll see that I have 110 blogs as of this posting....in fact yours is probably already there, but if not then I can learn who you are!


Sound fun??? Your blog doesn't even have to be a strictly tatting blog to enter, pretty much you just need to appreciate tatting. What a deal!


On Jan 15th I'll put all the names in a hat and let my husband draw the lucky winner!
Good luck!
Feel free to spread the word!!!

This is so awesome of you Sherry. I already have you in my "My Favourite Tatting Links". I'm assuming that is fine. Thanks for doing this.

Steph's (tat) Stuff said...

Oh, I can't resist this one. I do believe your blog was the first one I linked when I joined. Now send that shuttle this way! Honestly, if I were to win, I'd probably be too scared to use it for fear I'd break it. LOL!

Tattycat said...

Gee, I can't remember if I have a link to your blog on mine or not. LOL Please enter me into the drawing.

Becky said...

Hi Sherry! I posted on my blog about the giveaway and you have been on my blog roll since I had one! (And I'm on yours, so no new sites here!)

Ps. Got to love the Blogger word verification things! Mine was "loudier"

shirley burger said...

i would love to have your shuttle. i used to work with ceramics and know the complications. i did most of my work with porcelain and then painted and fired it. it would be wonderful to have a sample of your work, especially since it would be a shuttle.

Well, better a cow's tail than no tail at all! LOL What a great way to begin the new year; and, even if I AM the proud owner of a special shuttle of yours ~ can't have too many shuttles, right?

warm weather and will fly south
to Australia! I'm never lucky, but
I have had a win learning something.

Thanks for having this giveaway. I have put a link to your blog on my blog and will put you in the blogs I follow to keep track of you...Happy Holidays. Linda

I do not have a blog but love reading yours. I have been tatting for about 40 years (self-taught). I have looked for antique and unusual shuttles for years. Yours sounds fabulous.

Please include me in your drawing.

laurie in maine said...

I've only needle tatted - tried with one of those cheap department store shuttles and gave it up. Would love a a "real" one to try with. Here's a link to a blog post of a couple things I've done with a needle :)

anne bebbington said...

I have tatted for 35 years now ever since a little old lady who lived in the Old Peoples Residential Home where my mum worked spent a wonderful misty October Half Term morning passing on her skills to me - I only pick up my shuttle occasionally now and then as I spend a lot of time quilting but I've never forgotten - it's just like riding a bike. Your ceramic shuttles are works of art

Shell said...

thank you for the wonderful opportunity to enter your competition. I am awed by your work! I was astounded to read you have 110 tatting blogs on your blogroll already. So many more tatters out there than I ever expected. I have the internet to thank for learning to tat!

Lelia said...

I'd love a handmade shuttle! All I have are sad plastic ones....
