**NEW** Emma Rose Series Sneak and Giveaway!

Emma Rose Freedom is slated to be unveiled at the Baltimore Market, this weekend by Norden Crafts!

First came Emma Rose Friendship, second came Emma Rose Christmas and third is coming to your local  needlework shop very soon, IF you are sure to tell them to pre-order this sampler!! This opportunity will go only to the shop owners present at the Baltimore Market August 13-14, 2011! With their pre-orders these shops will receive Emma Rose Freedom at least a week to ten days before any other shops! So, be sure and tell them to visit the Norden Crafts booth and see the model for themselves!!

Would you like a little sneak-peek? 
How about another?
Sorry, they are both a bit fuzzy, since I have a new camera and I haven't had enough time to practice with it much yet. And the model is already in the hands of Norden Crafts, so I can' take any more pics.

Giveaway? Did someone say something about a giveaway too? Oh yes, that was me! Please post to this thread what you like most about the Emma Rose Series to date! Also for another chance at winning, please post the giveaway on your blog. Only other thing you need to do is be a follower of this blog, if you are not already!

Good Luck! Oh, haven't told you what is up for grabs in this giveaway, have I? Well....you will receive, IF you win, an autographed copy of Emma Rose Freedom, WITH the Gentle Art Fibers to stitch it, WITH a cut of the 40 ct Weeks Dye Works linen to stitch it on!!

WHAT? You don't stitch on the higher counts??? That is alright, I will substitute a comparable linen in a 32 or 36 count, your choice...I will do my best!!! You need to let me know also in your comment to this thread, which count of linen that you prefer.

PLEASE post to this thread and to your blog no later then Thursday August 11, 2011! Winner will be announced on Friday August 12, 2011!

Thanks much and here is wishing much success at the Baltimore Market this weekend! Safe travels to all of those attending! If you are, Norden has a few more of my models and will  have ALL of my patterns, so be sure and stop in! ALSO, pay Jim and Kristi Pfeiffer from the Gentle Art a visit, since they too have a couple of my other models to see up close and personal! Plus their fibers are scrumptious and wonderful to stitch with!

Have a wonderful week, readers and followers! I will be in touch soon, with a FULL picture of Emma Rose Freedom, will probably post on Friday the 12th!

Oh it looks wonderful!!! I love the Emma Rose series for the houses for one. I love houses on samplers, don't know why! And the colors you use are always so wonderful too! Thanks for the giveaway!

JulieF1962 said...

I love the warmth of the colors that you use, and I am a huge fan of little houses in charts. It all just reminds me of a simpler time when we focused more on being together in our cozy homes. :)

Catherine said...

Thank you for the chance to win this lovely pattern!! I love houses, alphabets, animals, and othet little motifs tucked into samplers!! And the colors in your designs just fit my home!

I love the Emma Rose series the colors are lovely....I love the houses...Pat

Cindy said...

Well if I had to pick just one It would be the Freedom because it has the American flag, always a biggy for me and the cute little puppy on the side of the house. I love the colors too! Let's face it the series is GREAT!

You have another winning design on your hands, my friend! The colors are fabulous, but I am drawn to the houses especially the one in Emma Rose Freedom! It truly speaks to me; maybe it is the type (saltbox). What a generous giveaway! I prefer 32 count!

Well, since my birthday is on the 12th I think it is an omen that I should comment for a chance to win. My favorite part of the Emma Rose series is the quaint feeling I get looking at the lovely little houses. Of course, the wonderful colors look great too! (I also love 40ct too!)

Thank you for the opportunity.

Cindy said...

i love the simplicity of Emma Rose. Please enter me in your giveaway. I will need the 32 count linen, my eyes are old.

What drew me to the Emma Rose Friendship sampler was the willow tree. I have several of them in my backyard and it just reminded me of that. The colors are gorgeous and they have a vintage feel. Can't wait to see the full pic.

Another lovely treasure indeed, my dear friend! I LOVE the Emma Rose Series ~ the history behind the series ~ remembering family in our needlework is such a wonderful and beautiful treasure and one that will endure through the ages... You have a wonderful way with colour ~ loving the reds ~ the houses are all beautiful and the trees... and all your motifs ~ and especially Emma Rose Friendship ~ “Meet me under the Willow Tree...” love my willows and the blackbirds/crows ~ everything always flows so beautifully... just love them all Sugar! Blessings, hugs and love you to the moon and back my dear friend...
"meet me under the willow tree..."

I like the style of the houses, and the trees are nice also.
Good luck with your models at market!
I hope you do well.

Deborah said...

First, the color palettes are perfect to me. Secondly, I love the houses. Third, I love the trees. Trees always draw me in. Look forward to seeing the whole piece.

ArchangelDecker said...

It looks like it's going to be another fantastic piece. I really love the Emma Rose Friendship one. It reminds me of my best friend, who unfortunately live across country from me. It reminds me that even though we are far apart, our homes and hearts are still open for one another, no matter what.


I prefer 32 count as my eyesight isn't what it used to be. :)

pj said...

Love your new designs and agree it is the colors that attract me to them along with your own unique style. Family is so important and to me your designs show a meaning and give a feeling of peace and it is the colors that are soothing to the eye. Great job on your new ones too! Would love to WIN! pj from iowa

Emma Rose Christmas speaks to me with its lovely verse, soothing colors, and guarding angel. 40 count linen would be fine, is I'm blessed enough to win this oh-so-generous giveaway. Thanks for th chance!

Ellen said...

Love your Emma Rose series! Sure would love a chance to stitch them, thank you for the chance!

Hugs,

robindefender said...

I came here because a fellow blogger had just stitched your Penny America design and I thought it was too cute. Your Emma Rose designs look so sweet, and I think what I like best about them are the little houses and birds. Too cute.

capecodgirl565 said...

I love the series because of the traditional look of the pieces. The colors are also beautiful. If lucky enough to win, I prefer 32 count. Good luck to everyone!

CathyR said...

I love the new design! As a shop-owner, I will be pre-ordering. Thanks for the opportunity to see the models in person...can't wait! No need to enter me in the drawing. I'll let someone else have that chance!

Lynn said...

Like many of the others I'm a big fan of the houses in your designs. Your designers are always so bright and cheerful too!
Please enter my name into your giveaway. I would prefer 32ct fabric if possible. I'm a regular follower and thank you very much for this generous offer.

Marsha said...

Love the houses. I am a house in a sampler type girl. so comforting, for some reason. Will post it on my blog ASAP.

Siobhan said...

I love the sayings that you put on the samplers--and little Emma Rose is adorable, too. :)

You have some gorgeous new releases!! You go girl! I am so psyched for you. I love your linens, too, and hope to try some soon.

Stephanie said...

Chiming in a bit late, but Jan, I'm so PROUD of you, your designs and your accomplishments! I know designing has been your dream and desire for many years and it's so exciting for me to see each release and to see so many people enjoying your designs. Another fantastic design, my friend.

Have a great day!

I love the reproduction feel of the samplers - it's a huge draw to me to feel part of history, but to have designs that are perhaps more appealing to 'modern' tastes. :) Fingers crossed I'll win! :D

My favorite so far has been the houses and willow tree in the Emma Rose Friendship sampler, but who knows, I might change my mind when I see the full picture of the Freedom one!

Sherry :o) said...

It is hard to say what I like the most - I guess with the sneak peak, I love the willow tree in "freedom" and the fibers!!

40 count is fine with me if (when - if I am being optimistic) I win!

Thanks for the giveaway chance!! Hope lots of your items sell at market and shops walk away happy, you have $$ and it's a success!

It is always the houses that draw me in then the other elements work their magic. I can't wait to see the entire sampler. Thank you for such a generous give away! I would love to give the 40 count a whirl, if my name is drawn.
