Stitching for Literacy ~ Blogger Puzzle Line 7

March 17 – April 28
Celebrate reading and stitching! Join participating independent needlework shops, guild, and Web communities, and stitch a bookmark that will be donated to a library or school during Children’s Book Week to reward reading accomplishments.
It’s a snap.
Step 1: Stitch a bookmark (or two, or three…). Any hand-stitched bookmark counts:
  • any pattern (one you purchase or one you make up)
  • on any ground (perforated paper, aida, linen, canvas, etc.)
  • with any fibers (cotton, silk, metallics, beads, etc.)
  • using any needlework technique (cross stitch, blackwork, hardanger, etc.)

If you're participating in the Needle and ThREAD: Stitching for Literacy New Blogger Puzzle Contest,
here's line 7:
H W F     V L M     S U V M W M X     C S N     Q S A M,    
This contest is open to everyone. If this is the first time you're hearing about it, go take a look.

    Step 2: Drop off or mail your bookmark to a participating needlework shop, guild, or community between March 17th and April 28th. (Or any time of year, most participants collect bookmarks year-round.)
