Giveaway: Stitch Heaven DVD

stitch heaven barbara walkerOne of the first books I picked up when I started knitting again after college was Barbara G. Walker’s First Treasury of Knitting Patterns. This collection, which blossomed into four volumes, is full of stitch patterns from the simple to the sublime.

I would never give away my Walker set, but I do have a fun Walker-related giveaway this week. It’s a DVD called “Stitch Heaven Salutes Barbara G. Walker.”

This video collection includes 18 stitch-along patterns. There’s lots of lace and cables, if you’re into those sorts of things. The whole DVD runs three and a half hours and includes an interview with Walker (knitting didn’t come easily for her, which should give us all hope) and a piece with Laura Bryant of Prisim Yarn that offers an education in combining colors.

This DVD is fun and especially helpful for knitters who like to learn by watching but might not have a knitting instructor nearby at all hours.

Enter to win this giveaway by leaving a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, July 7. The winner will be picked at random. The DVD says it is regionless, so

    I too have all four of the Barbara Walker Treasuries, and I would not part with them … Please enter me for the DVD giveaway; it sounds great. Thanks!

    You can take a plain pattern and turn it into a unique one with her patterns. I have had hours of pleasure reading and re reading her books. I would love to win this.

    Thanks for the fun giveaway! This would be great inspiration to take my knitting skills to the next level.

  5. Wendy Hatton says

    I’d love to give this to one of my daughters who struggles with patterns. She doesn’t live close to me so rings me for help. It’s quite tricky explaining stitches and patterns by phone!

  6. Colleen Smith says

    This sounds like a wonderful DVD! Learning visually is always so much easier.

    Thank you for the chance to win. :)

  9. Connie says

    Count me in, please! don’t have any knitter friends so a chance to listen to Barbara Walker would be a real treat.

  10. Andrea W. says

    Add me to the want list! I can picture myself with needles and yarn and actually spending the day with Barbara instead of just reading her? Sensational give away!

  11. Loretta says

    I am leaning how to knit and this DVD would be a great teaching tool. Would love to win this ! It would probably be better than learning from a book

  12. joyce says

    This DVD sounds like a great one to add to anyone’s collection. Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. Robin Peoples says

    This would be wonderful to have. It is much easier to learn if I can see how to do the stitches.
