EZ Centenary Giveaway from Winemakerssister!



Elizabeth Zimmerman was born 100 years ago on 8-9-10! I have missed any events marking this occasion, but I was thrilled to see that Heather from Winemakerssister is offering a beautiful commemorative set- notecards and mugs with your favorite EZ sayings, in her shop.

Heather is so sweet and will be giving away an EZ quote notecard with every purchase made in her shop the entire month of August!

Heather is also giving away a set (mug and cards) to one of you!! Drop by Winemakerssister, find something you love and come back here and post a little note about it and/or your favorite EZ quote. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week- be sure and let everyone else know about the giveaway via twitter, facebook etc for extra entries.

I love so many of her creations. I'd love to pick up the handmade stamp and the "peace love happiness knitting" mug.

lauraelih said...

Hmmm...I like her "A Swarm of Dragonflies" stitchmarkers.

Kim R. said...

Love the Lucky Celtic Stitch Markers!
Thanks :)

pocketsize said...

I really love the stamps, more than anything else. Particularly the yarn and needles one, but also the snail mail stamps.

RC said...

I love all her stuff, her handcarved stamps rock!

elendir said...

Right now I'd choose a Flock of Ladybugs stitchmarkers set... I like it so much that I already have one on its way to Italy :-D

Melrose said...

My favorite, other than the EZ quote, is the Knitting love mug! My favorite stamp is the curly sheep :)

redzshadow said...

I love the Black Linen Tea Wallet. Of course the yarn ho tumbler made me laugh so I like that one too.

Annette said...

a tough call - she has so many cool items! I'd have to say the lucky cat and coin stitch markers. Or the ball 0' yarn rubber stamp. Or... =)

Alexander the Great said...

My favorite quote by EZ is "For people allergic to wool, one's heart can only bleed." Although I've knit with some bamboo, so the hardships aren't totally there. =)

Pandora's Box of FIber said...

I was just looking at this set day before yesterday and was hoping to get it once I get paid! I also love the coffee mug that talks about the apocalypse and nothing surviving but cockroaches and Red Heart. :)

Yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

Mugs and notecards!
I could even order blindfolded, or just pick randomly and be very happy with the package in my mailbox.

Red said...

I love the Fairy and Flower Stitch Markers! Although the Swarm Of Dragonflies Stitch Markers are lovely too - I'm having a hard time deciding which of those is my favorite. =)

Helle Mikkelsen said...

I love the Fairy and Flower Stitch Markers!

Rudy's Mom said...

I LOVE the hand carved stamps for knitters, especially the heart of yarn with the needles through it. I've been wanting to design my own tags for when I gift my knitting. This is going to help!!

PS...will add the spinning wheel phone charm to my order. COOL

Kat said...

Everything in this shop is special!! My list would be way tooooo long, so, I will have to settle for talking about what I want first. lol
I love, love, love the hand carved rubber stamp with the spindle on it. Would be great for tagging gifts and handspun yarn. Then there is the hand carved rubber stamp with the winter mittens that is also a must have for holiday letters, cards and tags. And...
The knitidiot mugs are incredibly fun. I really need to win the lotto.

Cathy said...

I love the lady bug stitch markers.

theluckielizard said...

I have got to say that the gnome stamp and note cards are my favorite.

Tara said...

I really like the yarn stamp, but there is so many cute ones to choose from. I also like the mugs with the various knitting quotes

*Sarah said...

The dragonfly stitchmarkers are radiant!

Campbell said...

For me, I love all the notecards...just can't have too many of those in your office! And I would love to order a mug with my business name and twitter name on it! Perfect advertising while having a nice cuppa!!

Zombie Queen said...

She has so much amazing stuff!! I'm torn between the Hogwarts bracelet and the the centenary set.

Garilynn said...

My personal favorite, which I purchased a while ago, is the mug with the quote from Stephanie Pearl-McPhee:

"The only things that will survive the apocalypse are cockroaches, twinkies, and Red Heart Supersaver."

At least the cockroaches will be warm and have something to eat.

Ann C. aka redcheek2 said...

There is so many amazing things at this store that I had to add her to my favorites! I love the coffee mugs w/ a notecard but really loved this rubber stamp - Ball O' Yarn with Crochet Hooks!

sherry said...

The stitch markers, Flock of Ladybugs are adorable.

Libba said...

I have do luv the patchwork note cards, but the Elizabeth Zimmerman set is very special!

Heather said...

I love the handcarved stamps. Can't decide between the spindle one or the fluffy sheep one

"pym" said...

I love the hand-carved stamps. All of them. :) And of course, I love EZ.

InJuneau said...

I LOVE her handcarved stamps. I have a bunch in my favorites and may soon be buying, as I need to figure out the best way to make tags for my yarns and knitted items.

"pym" said...

My apologies if this shows up twice. Love the hand-carved stamps, though everything at Winemakerssister is lovely. :) And I love EZ -- great bed-time reading, as a chuckle is always good before sleep. :)

Yarn Envy said...

I just adore the Lucky Cat and Coin Stitch markers. They are just adorable.

Jessica said...

I really like the herb notecards, green is my favorite color!

trh said...

I love everything in her shop and she's terrific about putting together special packages. I so want her EZ notecards and mug - what a great gift for a knitter!

Connie said...

The tumbler with the saying "Knit Fast Die Warm" sure makes me smile.

orangejello1984 said...

Ok-First I have to say thanks again to Heather for the most wonderful swap package! She is so kind and considerate and sneaky (I had no idea it was her even after spending a whole day with her!) and it's so wonderful that she lives so close. I will be making another trip to see her because she is so awesome!

Now, as for her shop-I am totally a huge geek (as shown by the TARDIS cookie jar she sent me in my swap package) and the Ravenclaw charm bracelet is absolutely wonderful! I totally love anything Harry Potter, and the bracelets are just fantastic little ways to show you're a fan.

Heather makes some beautiful stitch markers and spins a great yarn. She's very clever and a wonderful person to know! Keep up the stunning work!

Becca said...

I love so many of her stitchmarker sets. My favorite is the snowflakes, since I love (and miss) snow!

Turtle said...

i love so many of her mugs with quotes but enjoy the markers as well. cannot choose just one!

Marni, Robert, Zero, MaryJane and Grace said...

Wow- loving the dog lover stitch markers and heart of yarn stamp- I'm a letterboxer and she makes fantastic stamps!

SJS said...

That spindle hand-carved rubber stamp is so cute! That's my favorite, with the peppers and guacamole stitch markers in a close second. My favorite EZ quote is quite simply, "I have unvented something." So briliant.

WonderWhyGal said...

I have one of Heather's mugs that was custom ordered with my farm motto on it. I love it! This is a wonderful prize!

Jean Ashley said...

I love the snowflake stitch markers. Actually, I like pretty much all of her stitch markers. Of course, I have more stitch markers than stitches to mark at this point, but still...

butterflyears said...

I love the "Hand Made" stamp! Also fell in love with lots of stitch markers!

Chris said...

Rosemary Berries is a great pattern. Something a little different, but with plenty of holiday appeal!

Chantel said...

I love the"Make tea not war" mug. Perfect!

HeatherD said...

I love the EZ mugs, but I have to admit that my favorite was the dog lover's stich marker set.

Dagny said...

I like the idea of a customized handlettered mug, and the mugs about Super Heart Savers is a favorite!

Alison said...

I love the calligraphy mug that has one of my favorite yarn related quotes on it "The only things that will survive the apocalypse are cockroaches, twinkies, and Red Heart Supersaver." Hahaha!

livin4fishin said...

All her items rock! I like the Snowflake stitch markers!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I like the way she does her stitchmarkers with the no-snag loops. My favorites are the sewing and dragonfly stitchmarkers.

EVA SB said...

This is such a fn shop!
I love yarn & needles stamp and the dragonfly stitch markers.

Anna B said...

I love all the stamps, and the mugs! Awesome :)

scottishthistle said...

I love the Centenary Gift set so much that I have already bought one. I can't wait to receive it. Her stitchmarkers are out of this world.

Debbie said...

I loved the Salsa and Guacamole stitch markers and my fav EZ quote is:

"For people allergic to wool, one's heart can only bleed."

I love your site and Winemakerssister's too. Now to go back and do some shopping.....

I've always wanted to have a yarn ball stamp

Magan said...

I love the Hand Stamped Fiber Animal Notecards. So cute!!

DariceMoore said...

I'll admit to my full-on love for Winemakerssister -- I already have a hive of honeybee stitch markers for Lampyridae's Clapotis KAL, and a lucky cat (red) and coin set. They're phenomenal and I keep reaching for them again and again.

The geek in me is in love with the Harry Potter stitch markers (http://www.etsy.com/listing/44887479/harry-potter-stitch-markers), and the cook in me loves the Salsa and Guacamole stitch markers (http://www.etsy.com/listing/46252231/salsa-and-guacamole-stitch-markers).

Forget-me-knot said...

I like each and every one of her adorable stamps. I especially like the one that's a ball of yarn in the shape of a heart with needles sticking out of it.

ennadoolf said...

I hope I'm not too late but I don't see a winner announced yet. :) My fave is the Chocolate Heart Stitch Markers - I had fun looking through the shop and hearted it!

dancingspindles said...

I like the lucky Celtic stitch markers.

knitterellapurl said...

Wow, it was hard to pick one, but my favorite was the mug about Red Heart surviving the apocalypse :D

Grandmatutu said...

I should be able to leave an EZ quote because I've read so many of them . . . but alas I can't think of anything right now. But I do love the Lucky Cat and Coin Stitch Markers AND and Dragonfly Stitch Markers AND the peace, love, happiness knitting mug AND, etc., etc., etc. Hard to choose because everything is so great!
