Wednesday Giveaway – Blackwing!

When Becky taught at Empty Spools last month, she split a set of special Vol 651 Blackwing pencils. This week’s winner, Ruth Buchanan, gets the remaining 9 pencils! 

They hold the same extra firm graphite as the Natural pencils and are suitable to use (lightly) on fabric. The Vol 651 pencils are a distinctive black and yellow striped design that goes with the story for this limited edition volume. Check out this story and others on our Blackwing page!

I’ll be back with another Giveaway next Wednesday. Until then you can shop for all sorts of sewing notions, books, and other fun stuff at!

  1. I’ve never heard of these – and that’s one of the best things about your blog. You bring products out & explain their use and I always learn something new! Thanks! Keeping fingers crossed….


  2. I love using the graphite pencils for applique tracing ever since you introduced it to me in a workshop last year. I used to always use pencils until I was told to use wash-away or heat-erase instead. I felt like I’d been doing it wrong forever, but am so happy to fund our that I’m not! Thanks, Becky
