View Full Version : Milward Shuttle lottery
As I am a definite needle tatter, I would like to offer you a chance to win one of my Milward shuttles (not the separate hook-I can only find one of those, and I am keeping that, sorry!) I noticed from another post that someone liked them, and couldn't get them now. I have 2, so there are 2 possibilities of winning. If you would like one, please reply to this thread and I will put all names in a draw and draw the winners on Valentines Day! It's just a little bit of fun for you shuttle tatters, and my way of saying thanks for all the help and patterns that you share. I bought them when I tried to learn shuttle tatting and never managed to learn. I probably could now with all the help available online, but I love my needle too much now! As they are very light I can send anywhere

I have the Milward shuttle with the little hook and they are really nice. I will not enter the draw on my behalf but I know my good friend Lin Barnes in the US has wanted one for ages. So I would like to enter on her behalf please.

Please include me in the drawing. I'd like to try a different type of shuttle. Thanks,

This is so generous of you.
Please include my name in the drawing.

Please, I want to be in the draw too. Thank you for having this draw.

Me, too! How nice of you.

I love to try different shuttles and would like for you to enter my name in your drawing. What a lovely thing to do.
I have 3 different types of shuttles and like each of them for different reasons. I have all three going on different projects right now.
Carole, I think you must be thinking of my post (http://www.intatters.com/showthread.php?1261-Split-Chain-Video-completed) in Linda Davies thread about her finished video for split chains. The video shows her using a Milward shuttle. I'd love for you to include my name in your drawing, please.
I don't blame you for keeping the hook. It is a very useful sort of tool. When I had mine, I would slip it under my wedding ring. It was readily available whenever I needed it, and out of the way when I didn't. Unfortunately, I lost mine on a bus. While putting it away in my little bag, it must have slipped onto the floor without my noticing. I've been miffed ever since. The shuttle has been gone for a good long while; no idea what became of it. But I now have one of those neat pen hooks, so replacing my lost Milward would be ever so nice.
Thank you for thinking of doing this.

ooo...I'd like to be entered!!! I love shuttle tatting, and I don't have a Milward's shuttle. I think it would be cool to try a different shuttle. Thank you for being so generous!!!:-)...

Yes please! I learnt to tat with a Milward but unfortunately that is lost now thanks to my ex who decided to throw it away!

I would really like to be included in the drawing!
22-01-2010, 02:51 PM
I would love to have my name put in too! so very generous of you.
22-01-2010, 03:18 PM
Me too! Me too! I keep looking for a post shuttle to love, from what I've heard the Millwards are very loveable.
22-01-2010, 04:06 PM
I would love to be entered into this drawing!
I would love to be the recipient of one of these shuttles.
I do not have one of these and it would be a nice addition to
try out something unique and different
I have never seen one in person, only through the tatting demos
on youtube. I think they look pretty nice.
Thanks so much for this opportunity. :)

Would love to be considered for a shuttle. I learned years ago on an old metal shuttle and have boughten different plastic ones, but would like to start collecting them. Guess you can never have enough shuttles with all the ufo's. Thanks in advance. Robert, from soggy northern Iowa.

I would love to be entered also. Never heard of Milward, but will be looking for info on them. I am beginning to build up my collection of shuttles, so it would be fun to add one to my somewhat small collection. Thanks...

I just wanted to say what a generous offer this is. I do not need to be in the draw as I have many Milward shuttles and to win another one would be greedy. I would much prefer someone else to win. However, I do have many of the little hooks that come with each shuttle and so, if whoever wins a shuttle would like to have a matching hook, just let me know!
Linda, you are a jewel! If I win, I will use my pen hook that lives in my pencil case inside my purse. However, if someone else wins, and you don't have one of these pen hooks, I urge you to avail yourself of Linda's kind offer. These hooks are really great.
12-02-2010, 01:53 PM
Oh yes, such a kind offer Linda. I know I would love a hook. Have never tried a milward or the hook, but both seem very nice. Whoever wins will have a special valentine's day treat:-)
12-02-2010, 03:52 PM
That's really generous, Linda. :) Now I've got to go out hunting for some luck...
:biggrin: I am very happy that so many of you have signed up for my little drawing! I will make the draw on Sunday at about lunchtime. If anyone else want to be added, please sign up by 10am GMT, which gives me time to make my very scientific pieces of paper with all your names on, and to get one of the kids to draw a couple out! Once the winners have been announced, I will need them to pm me their address, so that I can post them out.
Good luck everyone

For fun please throw my name in on your drawing for the Milward shuttle. No matter what I just want to say to you, Happy Valintine's Day!
13-02-2010, 02:51 PM
ooooh, the date is getting closer, I am excited!!!!
14-02-2010, 01:19 AM
I would like to be entered in the drawing
It's 7.00 am here so you have 3 hours left to sign up!
14-02-2010, 06:49 AM
Am I in time? I'd like to be in the draw too!
Anyone who has already signed up, is in the draw, but I am closing it now, as I need to make the list!!!
Good luck all
