It's been a long time since there's been a CraftyCat giveaway, so today's your lucky day! I've noticed that in some of the stitch groups I'm in on Facebook that there are a few stitchers who don't know what evenweave fabric is or know what it is but are too intimidated to stitch on it. Come on, stitchers, expand your stitchy horizons!!
Now, I know that everyone has their own preferences when it comes to cross stitch. Aida is a perfectly nice fabric, easy to stitch on, and most of us created our first piece of stitchy art on it. Stitching on evenweave, however, allows for more detail because fractional stitches are easier on it. It can be a lot softer too. And after you master evenweave, you can move on to linen which is a tiny bit more of a challenge because the threads in linen are often not even.
So for my giveaway, I'm offering a 18"x18" piece of white 28-count Jobelan. Don't panic about that 28-count. It's the same size-wise as 14-count fabric because you're stitching over 2 threads.
