A couple of weeks ago I mentioned I was the winner of Black Purl‘s very first monthly drawing. Check it out becase there’s still time to enter the December drawing, which will be for a Following Yonder Star art card, suitable for framing.
The November prize, which I received on Saturday, was a copy of Color Works: The Crafter’s Guide to Color by Deb Menz. As a new designer, I’m thrilled to have this useful tool. Thank you, L’Tanya!
Today I signed up for L’Tanya’s free, one-week e-course called Make it Sacred. It’s about creating a space in your home that’s special and just for you; a space that nurtures your soul. Not only does it sound exciting, but there’s also a very attractive (if I may say so myself) button for it, created by yours truly.
L’Tanya is the founder and editor of Black Purl. The goal at this intriguing new magazine and website is “to foster a sense of community among needlecrafters; a unique, virtual playground where artists can share their love of crafts.” It’s for all needlecrafters–quilters, knitters, crocheters, tatters, embroiderers, beaders, and more.
I love the vibe I feel at Black Purl, and I look forward to watching it grow. Don’t let the name mislead you. L’Tanya said it best: “Although the word purl is a knitting term, Black Purl is not just for knitters nor is it just for people of color. If you share our passion, it is for you! In fact, black pearls are not really black, but multi-colored — diverse like our community; diverse like our magazine.”
At Black Purl, you can download the premiere issue of the magazine for free and sign up for the free newsletter, Purls of Wisdom.
