Eternal Maker Treasure Hunt Giveaway!

I have been a fan of Eternal Maker for some time so having Anna's shop as my first sponsor is a happy day!  I don't take the issue of sponsorship lightly-  I am only happy to recommned what I would happily use and buy myself.  This is not hard for Eternal Maker as they stock the variety that I need.  I want more than quilt fabric, I want dressmaking and embroidery, I want variety and more variety.  I want fabrics that I haven't seen in any other UK shops.  I am very greedy, but I find all these things and more each time I look at this shop!
Anna runs Eternal Maker, her mum owns the sister shop, The Button Company.  Sewing is in their blood and together they offer a huge variety of sewing stock.  Anna has expanded Eternal Maker from its original premises and prides herself on the range of imported fabrics and supplies that she offers- it is this that makes Eternal Maker a very special place to shop, no overseas postage or fear of Import duties, plus she will ship anywhere in the world!
You can find Japanese designers like Suzuko Koseki
And fabric by the elusive Yoshiko Jinzenji.  Both these fabrics are produced by Yuwa.
And then there is Aurifil!  Anna stocks 50 wt in so many colours it satisfies my fussiest requirements for exactly the right shade of grey- I like 2615.  And she stocks the 'Collection' boxes which I have not seen anywhere elese in the UK. This neutrals selection from Mark Lipinski is on my Christmas 'want' list.


Just in are these adorable cross stitch patterns by Gera- again Japanese design hard to find anywhere out of Japan.  I think the only other place I have seen them is the USA online shop Superbuzzy.  My daughter has her eyes on these- any of them.
And to go with this, one of my new favourites and finding that Eternal Maker stocked these was the best news ever- Lecien Cosmo.  Super silky stranded embroidery threads that just make me melt with the colours and texture.  Anna has only just started stocking these.  Colour cards are coming- I have one from Lecien and they are essential if you are going to get into stitching with these as it makes ordering and matching a whole lot easier.  Only a month ago I could not find any stockist of Lecien Cosmo in Europe so having these only 2 days away with a little help of the postie is a happy thought for me indeed!
My only criticism of Eternal Maker is they need to shout a little louder about their stock- so I am going to do it for them.  To tempt you in for a look at the treasure, Anna has generously prepared a little giveaway package.  Inspired by Lu Summer's stitchy adventures with her own wonderful Summersville fabric line- see Lu's photo and handiwork below...
embroidered town
a stack of Summersville with a co-ordinating rainbow array of Lecien Cosmo threads awaits one lucky winner...to  enter,  take a look at anything at the shop and tell me what treasure you found.  This is my favourite- take a look.  You don't need to put a link, just say what you found.

  8. I love Eternal Maker - I placed an order this morning and they were really helpful as I wanted a couple of skeins of embroidery thread to match the fabric I was buying, they got back to me quickly with the information I needed to place an order.
