Happy Anniversary to Threadies! A Contest!

Time really does fly when you are having fun; it has been two years now since I told my friend and fellow designer Cylinda Mathews, "I wish there was a Facebook group just for thread crochet. I think I will start one." And even though I didn't have a clue how to go about it, I did.
As I say, time flies, and the group now has over 8,000 members! If you are not already a member, I hope you will stop by and join us. The talent of the members is truly amazing, I can't wait to see the photos they post every day!
https://www.facebook.com/groups/Threadies/
So, to celebrate the Threadies second birthday, I though we should have a contest, and I knew the perfect item to use for the prize:
The bird screws off the top so you can put the thread on the stand.

During our second CAL (crochet along) back in Feb. 2015, I posted this picture of my work in progress:

We were making the Diamond Points Doily, designed by Cylinda Mathews:

My doily got a few of the usual "how pretty" comments, but what really caught everyone's attention was my thread holder. I had to confess, it was actually intended to be a toilet paper holder that I had bought off Ebay a few years ago. A lot of the members fell in love with it, and several actually ordered their own stands! 
I thought it might make a prize a Threadie would enjoy so I ordered a brand new one just for this contest. 
Here is the information on the contest and the rules:
1: I will give one person the thread holder/toilet paper stand (use it however you desire!) pictured in the first photo above (no thread or doilies will be included) 
2: The contest is open to all members of the Threadies Facebook group and to readers of my blog (although I hope you will be both!)
3: The box will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

4: The contest will run from today (Nov. 14th) through  Nov. 27th 2016. 
5: I will select the winner at random from all comments left on this post and announce the winner's name here on the morning of Nov. 28th, so please be sure to check back to see if you won.  
6: Only comments left on this post will be entered; comments left on Facebook, emails, etc. WILL NOT be eligible to win (it is too difficult to coordinate comments left in different places.) Only one entry per person, please! 
7: If the winner does not contact me within 7 days of the end of the contest, I will select a new winner, and the prize will be awarded to them. Failure to contact me within 7 days will result in forfeiture of the prize.
 8: If you post anonymously, please be sure I have a way to identify you (at least give your first name or a nick name in your comment; I have no way of knowing who is posting.)


To enter, just leave a comment answering this question:
What is your favorite thing to crochet with thread?


This contest is now closed!

I love making anything from thread. Congrates to you Elizabeth Ann White for then great group.

Riggzy13 said...

DOILIES!! I have loved them for as long as I can remember. I've always wanted to find unique vintage doilies at sales, and didn't have much luck. So I thought I should try making some. Ecru was my choice of color, then I found 'THREADIES', and I love the variegated threads everyone is using. Now I'm thinking wouldn't it be really awesome if I could figure out how to take a doily pattern and make a shell to wear......

Thanks,
Lauri Riggs

Mrs BLY said...

Debbie said...

I love making ornaments for our Christmas tree and beautiful flowers.

Sharon Clay said...

Mostly doilies !! Just recently purchased two more of your gorgeous patterns !!! Love that I can get back to crocheting - illness and antibiotics (massive amounts) at the end of last year made me unable to walk and had to learn all over again and nerve neuropathy in my hands - I lost my hands!!! Coming back now, and my doilies are the first things on my list !!! Been crocheting since I was 7 and will be 66 next month, so pretty much my whole life has been filled with crochet !!! sharonclay2009@gmail.com

Colleen Sullivan said...

Snowflakes as my great grandmother used to make them for me and my family and now I can make them for everyone else

Marian Gillis said...

Snowflakes. I am just getting started but do enjoy it.

Dena said...

Doilies, definitely doilies! And sometimes snowflakes or angels! :)

C&P Dodson said...

Haha, this is thread holder such a great idea! When working with thread I usually have it right next to me bobbling about as I pull on for more, often lopping itself right onto the floor then gathering copious amounts of dog hair (we have 5 dogs and yes I vacuum often). My favorite projects being 3D angels.

Jjoy said...

I like to crochet mantillas with thread, although the tablecloth I'm working on is pretty cool, too!
Happy Anniversary!
Joy Niklas (also in Threadies group)

Elspeth Leger said...

I am not the most ardent doily maker. BUT I love making miniature items. I have made 6 or 7 mini afghans for my doll house friends using one strand of embroidery floss and my Grandmothers lace crochet hook. Quite tedious.

Karen Marty said...

I love this group! I have seen so many gorgeous items. Right now I'm working on a table runner (about 40 inches long when finished) of Santa Claus and 8 reindeer flying over pine trees. My favorite projects are small doilies that I make in sets for use as coasters. Thanks for everything you do.

recoverylife101 said...

Great giveaway. I love making doll dresses out of thread.

Laura Jones said...

Tablecloths doilies and crinolines are what I love to make with thread.

Babs Foose said...

In looking at the prize, I can see where it would have been a Victorian paper holder but I think it has much great use as a thread holder. Absolutely love it and the Threadies. Happy Anniversary and thank you for the gift of the Facebook group.

Sheila N. said...

I LOVE to make doilies, tablecloths, bedspreads, and especially CHALLENGING patterns- Can you say Trish K?!! LOVE HER DESIGNS!!

Laurie Griepentrog said...

The thread holder is beautiful and very practical as well! I love crocheting doilies from thread, and also enjoy smaller projects like bookmarks, Christmas ornaments, etc, that can be completed in a couple of hours.

Deep River316 said...

Happy Anniversary Threadies. What a wonderful group. Even though I don't post often, I always tune in to see what others are creating. What a wonderful group of talented people we have in this group. I love seeing their creations. My favourite thing to make in thread are doilies. The colour combinations are endless. The themes are endless. I just recently discovered self striping thread, what a joy to work with it, and it is always a surprise to see the end product. They take on a personality that no one can duplicate........love those surprises. What a wonderful and generous gift you are prepared to give away.....love it....keep up the great work ladies in making this Facebook group a success, and that you to the creators!!!!!!! for giving us a place to show off our talent....

Karen Chartier said...

What a great prize! I love doilies the best because they are so beautifully delicate; I really love their symmetry

Judy Warehime said...

These days I seem to make mostly doilies and Christmas decorations, but my favorite things to make with thread are Christening outfits and doll clothes. To my favorite thread designer, Ann, thank you for Threadies and Happy Anniversary!!

Celticrx said...

Mandala thread Doilies! Thanks for the contest. Elizkeeler

Karen Sites said...

Dollies are my favorite, but I also really enjoy snowflakes and Angel ornaments.

Ellen Kimble said...

2 years & 8,005 members. That is really something to celebrate!

I learned to crochet making what Grandmother called dish rags. I recently found one of them and was surprised to see that it was actually done following a filet crochet pattern in thread. The pattern was on graph paper, that she had to have made from a lined tablet, was safety pinned to it and was dated Summer 1961 and my name printed on it. I would have been 7.

My favorite thing to crochet is what I call "3D" Doilies. Thank you for lovely designs. My first one was your Flower Garden Fairy Dolily. Thanks for the group Threadies. Laurie Locey

I love crocheting doilies.

Cindy Lynne said...

I'm so addicted to doilies! I'm working on one now for Christmas! Happy Anniversary! Mell Andre

Jeanne Archer Ramsay said...

Must say doilies, too! Since I joined this group and discovered the beauty of using colors other than white and mixing in varigated threads, the possibilities are endless. I enjoy making snowflakes this time of year also.

Judy Kalo said...

Doilies,then vintage looking potholes...I am Judy Starr Kalo on fb threaded....this is so nice of you to do..

Patti Murphy said...

First of all, a huge thank you Elizabeth Ann White for forming & maintaining your facebook group Threadies! Absolutely the best group with the greatest members ever! Can't express my gratitude for all the inspiration I've gained here.
Secondly, another thank you for this contest. Besides the chance to win the holder, it's a wonderful opportunity to mingle with fellow Threadies.
I fell in love with thread crochet at a young age, and began making doilies & runners when I learned the craft. I've branched out to a few accessories & pieces of clothing in the last few seasons (& want to make some filet curtains), but always come back to doilies in between projects, so I must admit doilies are my favorite things to crochet. I use them throughout my home & they always make a great personalized gift for just about any occasion.

Judy Kalo said...

Darn auto correct...potholders and fb threadies..lol

Lori Ouellette said...

It's so difficult to name just one thing, but I would have to say named pieces for monumental events, like wedding dates, anniversaries, or baby births!

kathome said...

Hummmmm. Favorite thing to crochet with thread....well I make more doilies than anything but have made a few tablecloths. Also Angels, ornaments and bowls. Thanks for the Threadies group. It's inspirational!

Fribro said...

When I first saw someone post that they had gotten this thread holder, I fell in love. It a very nice thing for you to run this contest to celebrate. Thanks!

For the love of crochet said...

I taught myself how to crochet at 8 years old. Today, crochet has become my stress reliever and anti-depressant after losing my husband and my job. I love to crochet large projects like tablecloths and bedspreads. It brings me joy to see these beautiful pieces come together and to see the faces of the recipients when presented to them. Thank you for the Threadies group, which allow me to connect to other crocheters around the world. Happy anniversary.

Leah said...

I like making coasters and sun catchers. They work up pretty quickly and can look so different depending on what colors you use! I was just wishing I had a thread holder, so that's a sweet giveaway.

Rosina Smith said...

I have been a Facebook group Threadies member almost since the beginning. It has been a lot of fun to see the group grow! I've watched many members' thread crochet blossom over time, to become outstanding works of art. My stitching has improved from the many tips shared by other members, and I have found some new-to-me designers to add to my favorites. I have also been able to share some of my favorite techniques. This group is the best for sharing and enabling each other, isn't it? One more bonus is that I have made some awesome friends in this group.

I am not entering the contest for that adorable thread holder, but wish the best of luck to each of you who are entering!

Happy Thread Crochet!!!

Rosina

Sheila Wakefield said...

I love to do doilies with thread, although, my all time favorite projects have been small doilies, stars, hearts etc. that have then been used as appliques on quilts. I have so enjoyed the Threadies group. It is a tremendous encouragement. Thanks for all you do!!!

Kaylene said...

I love the Theeadies group, so inspirational!

Carolyn Kotlas said...

Happy Anniversary! This group with the beautiful photos everyone posts on FB has inspired me to do more thread crochet projects.

Crochet N Beads said...

My favorite thing to crochet with thread is whatever my brain, my hook and I can come up with. From doilies, to bedspreads,clothing, jewelry,
toys, shawls, it doesn't matter. What ever is on my hook is my current favorite. I love any thing made with thread.

What a lovely prize! Thank you, Elizabeth, for holding this contest and especially for creating and administering Threadies!

My favorite thing to crochet with thread is vintage doilies. I love keeping the patterns alive by making new ones!

Nyla LeSage said...

Doilies, of course, but also angels and Easter eggs and table runners and ornaments and snowflakes and doll clothes and baskets and pillows and bookmarks and, well, you get the idea. Happy Anniversary Threadies!!

Natureluvr57 said...

I love Irish Crochet Roses which is the first thing my Mom taught me after practicing just plain stitches. Of course doilies are right behind so I can put the roses on them. That is a gorgeous "thread holder". Thanks for the chance to win! and for having a wonderful group that teaches and inspires the threadie in all of us. Natureluvr57 a.k.a. Sandra D in Joliet

Jeannine said...

Oooh...do I have to pick just one thing? I love making miniature versions of other things - I've used thread to make blankets, doilies, hats...I have a whole bunch of art dolls, so whatever I make is bound to fit someone! (Jeannine Haitch on facebook)

Yesca3370 said...

I love doilies and am a threadie at heart, was so excited to have found this group a year and a half ago, it has inspired me and taught me so much more (also a bit lighter in the $$ department) lol thank you for the group and congratulations!!

Joyce Libby said...

This is so very thoughtful of you. I love trying new doilies with thread. I haven't been doing it for too long so still learning and enjoying the results.

Just Kitty said...

Hi. This is Kitty Hoye Brewer. It would be such a blessing to win this contest. I learned to crochet using thread while still in high school. I would sit in class (right up front - got away with it cause I was teacher's pet, aka Miss Brown Nose), but when I picked up crocheting again (8 years later), it was with yarn and that's all I used in the past 45 years. I get so excited seeing all the beautiful things posted in Threadies that I am anxious to try thread again (have purchased tubs full in anticipation. Thank you for starting this group and for the chance for someone to win this lovely gift. Happy Anniversary Threadies.

Kathy Fields said...

Tablecloths, the more complicated the better. Thank you!

Just Kitty said...

OOops....Forgot to mention that I have only crocheted doilies, but I think tablecloths will become my favorite. Tanks again Kitty Hoye Brewer

My favorite thing to crochet with thread is a "Challenge." Whether it is a doily, sculpture or amagurumi. I do love the Vintage doilies.

basilcat53 said...

I love making doilies but I would like to learn how to crochet clothing with thread.
Happy Anniversary. This is a wonderful group to be part of.

BellaBlue said...

How wonderful! I love Threadies, this blog; just a wonderful way to while away the time (when not crocheting, that is!). My very favorite item to make with thread is doilies. I was taught by my Memire at a very early age. I can remember sitting and watching her fingers fly as she made the most spectacular things. I was blessed when she passed to receive her threads, books, and hooks and every time I use them I am transported back to sitting on her green leather poofy stool, talking and laughing and learning crochet and drinking tea like the grown-up I thought I was at 8 years old. Thank you for all that you do to keep the art alive!

Mousumi said...

I started learning thread crochet as a child and my grandmom said, simply keep going around. Add or remove extra stitches as you go and there you have a pattern!
Doilies were and are my all time favourite. But, Threadies has turned me into an obsessive table topper fan! I looked at all the work here and with so much of experience and talent, I just couldn't stick on to doilies!! My best crochet work happened after I got here! And boy, my love just doubles! Happy Anniv!!

Marci said...

Doilies are great fun, but my favorite thing to make is a Christening Gown. I love seeing them on the baby at a baptism.

Monaraehill said...

I like making logo's with thread.

ivshopdndropd said...

Wow, 2 years already!!!!
I love taking a standard afghan pattern and working it in thread. I think intricate patterns show up so well in thread!

Colleen M said...

Beautiful piece for holding thread. I love all kinds of thread crochet, but I thin my favorite thing to make is miniature toys, the most favorite are tiny jointed bears. I love the look on children's faces when they see them and realize their arms and legs move and they can make them stand, sit, etc. Toys are the most fun things to make and give!.

Cille said...

Doilies ...of course!

Happy Birthday Threadies!

Happy Anniversary!! I love the thread holder! What a lovely idea to b celebrate! I had a regular thread holder,like the kind you see often, a holder on top with a draw to hold your hook when you put it away . I had to leave that behind when I moved back to India and I have never been able to b replace it. I work with both yarn and thread but thread makes my heart sing๐Ÿ’ž

Jean Hanson Rees said...

I love Threadies on Facebook. I enjoy seeing all the pictures and information on patterns. I have been crocheting since 1973, my mom was showing my sister and I how to make granny squares. My sister got the hang I it right away. Me I couldn’t make it square I got mad and decided I would make something else so I went to WT Grants a department store in the area and found Coats & Clark book no.222 doilies. The first thing I ever crocheted was a doily, the one on the cover of that book. I was so proud of myself. I have been making doilies ever since. To me it is my stress release. Thank you for Threadies.

Anonymous said...

My favorite thing about crochet thread is how beautiful it works up and everything looks vintage,l have many antiques that l love including doilys from the past and l often wonder about the maker her life and what she did.I hope one day someone else may wonder the same thing about my work the thread holder is beautiful and vintage looking xx Kerry

Sue said...

Threadies is one of my favourite Facebook groups, and I say this as a member of hundreds and admin of several very nice groups. It is warm, welcoming and a great place to learn. Thank you very much for making it what it is. I remember coming to your blog for a pattern and then reading about the 'new group' you'd started and promptly signing up!

tekla1306 said...

I learned to crochet for just one reason; to create doilies. I have crocheted well over a thousand and still never tire of them. There is something always challenging about creating with thread.

Claudette Tiller said...

Oh my goodness...anything out the Magic Crochet magazines. You can find anything from doilies to umbrella patterns. Could you imagine the designs they'd print if it was still being published? It boggles the mind!

S RedFeather said...

What is your favorite thing to crochet with thread?
I actually have two...Doilies and barefoot sandals (because they're like doily fractions ๐Ÿ˜)

sb said...

My absolutely favorite thing to crochet is doilies, especially pineapple ones. Unfortunately, I cannot crochet with the fine thread as much as I like due to nerve and muscle neuropathy that affects my arms and fingers. I still try to make them periodically. Takes me quite a bit longer to complete than when I was younger but still enjoy making them! Would love to win the bird stand to hold my cotton. Thank you for the chance to win.

Celia M said...

My favourites in thread are square doilies, runners and Crinolines. I'm happy to be a part of ' Threadies'. Happy anniversary!

Retta said...

Doilies, doilies and more doilies. I like to think that I am caring on a family tradition with my crochet. My grandmother taught me when I was 10, I have loved it ever since. I have only been thread crocheting for a couple of years,and I instantly loved it. I joined your group when we were less that 2000. This is my first stop "after coffee" each morning. I love having coffee with friends. Thank you Ann and all the other admin for your hard work in making this the very BEST group on Facebook.

Anything and everything!

Rosemary Smith said...

I crochet 3 rows around 1 yard square of baby flannel - or cotton lined with solid color flannel - to make crib blankets. I have made a few pineapple bookmarks and small doilies but my main focus is on the crib blankets. So many patterns and colors too choose from.

Susan Wendt said...

My favorite thing to make with thread is a doily. Just to take thread, a hook and a pattern to make a beautiful item is very satifying.

D Moore said...

Beautiful prize! My grandmother had one similar with a bear on the top. When she passed away however her son sold it instead of handing it down as she had requested. This group is awesome and I have seen some wonderful work and found lots of inspiration since joining! Happy Anniversary to all Threadies and here is to another productive and creative year.

Doilies hands down my favorite! I would so love to belong to the threadies group but for persona l reasons i cannot be on face book

Sherry Giddings Chuhay said...

I began as a 7 year old crocheting with thread. It has always been my favorite form of art. It is so noce to be able to relax and look at the beautiful creations on Threadies.

Jollyolly San said...

Doilies, doilies, and more doilies! I've picked up crocheting again recently after a hiatus and remembered how much I enjoyed doilies. Now, I'm learning how to read charts and I must say, I wish I learned sooner! So much easier to follow! Hope I win that birdie holder!! :)

Nanette Venters said...

Love the "thread holder" and the Facebook site. I'm inspired to renew doily-making!

Alicia Crenshaw said...

There are so many things to crochet with thread! i love the typical doilies, applique, and amigurumi... but I think I look forward most to seeing what a blanket pattern will lok like in thread. There's just something about creating a small replica of a blanket out of thread that completely changes the tone of the finished piece. Thread allows each and every stitch to stand out, rather than become all blended together, as fuzzy yarn tends to do. :)

The favorite item I love to crochet with thread is Angels, then I will give them to family and friends who are having difficulties. So I am always looking for new patterns to use and yes I have crochet the Christmas Angels you have on your site. Can't explain but I have a sense of peace and relaxing when crocheting Angels. Then I try to attach a note of encouragement. Thank you Elizabeth for all your hard work.

I love filet crochet...and doilies :)

Debbie Donovan said...

Doilies, of course! I first started out crocheting afghans way back when and then I saw a doily on the back of one of my mom's chairs and as I gazed at the beauty of it, I wondered if I could crochet with thread, so I went to Michael's, bought a ball of thread and a doily book and that was it; I was hooked and still am!

This would make crocheting with thread so much easier!

Doilies is all I have ever done with thread. Is there anything else?

Haras Cullers said...

It is so very lovely.

I love to crochet doilies the best therapy ever and the finished product is beautiful

Debie Stebbins said...

So many patterns...so little time!! My top item to crochet is doilies, using as many colors as possible! I love crocheting Mandala's. I started following Wink's work a year or so ago and just fell in love with all of the possible color combinations. These thread mandalas also inspired my daughter to begin making them with yarn. Wonderful! I also get to decrease my stash a bit (but if I find a good deal, the stash always goes up again...)!

Hello & Happy Anniversay. I enjoy crocheting bracelets & necklaces, giving them to the little girls. They get so excited.

I love to crochet earrings with my thread the most. It is so relaxing and therapeutic after a long stressful day. But I also like making doilies with it too.

Well, it would be a tie between doilies and crochet thread jewelry. Since I must pick one, I'd have to go with doilies. I just love to see them develop as an complete rounds, and how it feels when they are done, and I see them, and can't believe "I did that!".

Fribro said...

I have made everything from bikinis to curtains but my favorite is Christmas ornaments. Bells, angels, trees, stars, anything!

I love to crochet doilies most of all. They challenge me and I like that.

Vintage thread crocheted potholders are a passion and addiction for me. I love the old vintage doilies, but I can't seem to turn down those darn potholders and hope that the art of crocheting them as well as doilies, never fades from this earth. The thread holder is adorable, and if I don't win it, I wish the best to the crocheter who does. Pam Bates.

Trying again- this time via computer.
I love making miniatures and currently started trying amigurumi objects in tiny size. Seems redundant, I know, but I like to see how small I can take something.

I love making Doilies, and doll clothes with thread.

Rose said...

Happy Anniversary Threadies!!! I have a passion for doilies, I love them so much and drool over the post of them everyday, yet I have not made one. The first thing I made with thread was an Indian Doll set Man/Woman with bead work from a Leisure Arts booklet many many years ago. I still have that set of dolls and love the detail in the work. This year as I start slowing down at work I hope to start making doilies. I want a house full of them!!

Happy anniversary to the group. I love to crochet doilies. Great prize. Good luck to all the members.

I've done a small version of full-size afghans with interesting stitches. I find the thread provides better definition than yarn. Either that, or I'm just a glutton for punishment! Either way, Happy Anniversary!!

Margaret Pflueger said...

This is awesome :) I love to crochet and wish I had more time for it! Having four jobs doesn't help. Oh well, happy anniversary!

Debbie Yackanicz said...

I am really not sure what I like to crochet in thread I am just beginning.
I have done a doily so far. It was much easier than I thought it would be. I was very afraid. But not so much anymore. Happy Anniversary!

Deborah Hale said...

I love doilies best of all! My last project was actually a huge circular shawl that I adapted from a doily pattern. After spending 10 months on that, I'm having a hard time in deciding what to make next. It'll probably be another doily...LOL!

Busgymalone said...

I love making filet crochet with of course steel needles, antique preferably, and the super thread holder would save me from chasing the thread across the room chased by the cat..

I learned to crochet with thread many, many years ago! Just miles & miles of chains before my mom was happy with my tension. Doilies are still a favorite although I get involved with table cloths & bed spreads every so often.

Linda OBrien said...

Dollies....doilies...and more doilies!! I'm always seeing just one more that I want to make. Most of them are given away to people that appreciate the love that went into making them, which gives me a blessing.

I love to make doilies and I use them all over my house. I am currently working on a popcorn stitch bedspread. advice to all - don't wait till you are 65 to start our bedspread!

My fav thing to crochet is vintage everything because after so many generations are gone, the lifestyles forgotten as well. Maybe my doilies will be antiques years from now to inspire and keep this art alive. Maria thomas
