2011 Aurifil Designer of the Month Event

I don’t mean to be a tease, but the photo above is all I can show you of a project I just finished that will be offered as a free pattern through the 2011 Aurifil Designer of the Month Event. I’m so excited to be part of this neat program. Each month, host Pat Sloan will interview a different designer and show you some of that person’s work. 

But the best part is that there will be a new free project each month. Whether your passion is handwork, wool appliqué, machine embroidery, needleturn appliqué, or traditional piecework, there will truly be something for everyone here (take a look at the lineup of the designers and you’ll see what I mean).

And of course, there are prizes! Make up that free project and share a photo in our Flickr group. Thirty days after each pattern is released, Aurifil will select a winner – maybe you! The prizes are a different Aurifil thread collection each month.

So get ready now, in the last days of 2010! Take a look at the amazingly talented lineup below … visit their websites and blogs, friend them on Facebook, and get in on the fun from day one. It’s going to be a fun year!
