months sponsor - Holly Hinton of Holly's Hobbies!

Holly's Hobbies - Cross-Stitch Heaven!!
Holly Hinton was taught to stitch when she was four years old but only became hooked when she discovered
cross stitching as a teenager.
Many finished pieces and years later after the arrival of her first child
Holly was unable to find a bright baby sampler to stitch for him, so she designed her own and Holly's Hobbies
Holly designs and sells personalised cross stitch Name Sampler kits and charts on her website and this forms
the backbone of her business with loyal cross stitch customers worldwide. All Holly's Hobbies kits are
personalised with any name and text specified and posted worldwide at no extra cost and for less than the
cost of many standard cross stitch kits.
The best sellers are definitely the Fairy Name Sampler Kit for
girls with it's cute fairies peeking around letters and Transport for boys with its bright and bold cars,
trains and planes, but Holly is constantly adding new designs to the range.
In addition to kits and charts, Holly has recently started stitching some of her own Christmas designs and
selling them in her Christmas Handmade shop on Zibbet and at local craft fairs and Christmas markets in
Staffordshire. Holly's favourite "Merry Christmas" bunting has also proven to be extremely popular with
customers. Holly is expanding her online handmade range in the New Year to include more cross stitch
designs with year-round appeal.
This month's prize is a NOEL bauble wall hanging designed and stitched from Holly's Christmas range and
features metallic gold thread to make it really sparkle. It is approximately 5½" wide by 31" long
including the heart topped wire hanger and is backed in green and tan checked cotton fabric. This
design is also currently available to buy in kit or chart form.

I love cross stitch. Actually, I used to create beautiful yet simple images made from it like the picture of flowers, trees, and scenic views. Anyway, this December, I want to give a cross stitch gift to my special friends and family. But then, because of my hectic schedule, it might be better to order in your the given local craft stores.
