So, I’m really excited about the mini-hoop swap! There are heaps of people signed up (the biggest swap I have ever run, I think) and there feels like there’s a real mini-hoop buzz going around! If I wasn’t having a duvet-day, feeling sorry for myself and full of cold I’d be rushing and leaping around in excitement..
If you want to get started buying your hoop and supplies, then today is the start of the 10% off offer at Cloud Craft – just use the code HOOPY10. This is valid until 8 February, so hurry along!
So, if you’ve not made a mini hoop before… Sonia, who invented the brilliant Dandelyne mini-hoop, has put together a really nice little tutorial on YouTube:
Top tip – you don’t necessarily need a glue gun – hi-tack glue is equally as effective for holding everything together.
But what to put into your hoop? Well, there’s all kinds of a different embroidery techniques, but there’s also patchwork and appliqué options – or maybe even crochet or weaving. Here are some of my favourites – I hope will give you lots of inspiration!
Hope your brain is buzzing with creativity right now! Have fun with the swap… and don’t forget that 10% discount with HOOPY10 at Cloud Craft.
