This post is packed with so many details and so much fun, you might want to take notes and break out your calendars!

Hold on to your seats! This is going to be an exciting week!!

1. Our episode is this Tuesday!

Our episode is this Tuesday and it is the season finale! But, and this is important, there are two new episodes this week! The first airs at 8pm EST, and the second at 11p EST. We are the second episode! Look for “Pilgrim Plumbing” in your listings! Any guesses as to what we’ll be making???

PS…You’ll know you have the right episode because we have a special host! Steve Piacenza!

2. Let’s recap the show together!

Jen and I know that our episode airs pretty late Tuesday night (it’s past my bedtime!) so we’re going to give you some time to watch it through your DVR, catch a replay, or even download it from iTunes. Then, Thursday night at 8pm EST we’re hosting a LIVE Spreecast!

See the box below? Just come right back here to this post, and you can watch it happen right there! Join the chat, submit questions, even come on camera with us…we can’t wait to hear what you thought of our crafty competition!

(If you don’t see the Spreecast box it’s probably because you’re reading this through a feed. Click this link to view it right on the Nikki, In Stitches site!)

Note: Some of you know that I’m a huge fan of Spreecast and you have joined in on the fun either directly with me, or in my favorite Craft Wars judge Stephen Brown of Glitterville’s after shows.

  13. MelodyJ says:

    Craft Wars is a fun show.


  14. Hi Nikki,
    What an amazing journey this has been to craft, blog, and connect with so many wonderful artists. I enjoyed my first Spreecast last week and look forward to trying to be there on Thursday with you and Jen. So far I have enjoyed all of the episodes of Craft Wars, but have to be honest about Episode 1 being a bit of a favorite. I had been following Christy Tomlinson for a while when I found out she would be on the show and love her Mixed Media style. I also enjoyed the last two episodes since I feel like the bar had been raised compared to other episodes. Wonderful show and so happy that Crafters are being Represented!
    Can’t wait to watch you and Jen on Tuesday!
    Jessica S

  15. AWESOME PRIZES! My next project will be an altered canvas to hang in my new bathroom! LOVE Craft Wars! Looking forward to the 2 shows tomorrow night! Thanks for the chance!

  16. Michelle says:

    Sign me up for the giveaways! I don’t have a favorite episode….I am sure I will after the 11pm episode…way to go Nikki!!!!!

  17. Okienurse says:

    I picked up a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Configurations Print Tray to alter at Michael’s a few days ago and I am going to alter it using paper, paints, VerDay, and all sorts of fun bling and stuff. I originally thought to give it a holiday theme since it is going to be a holiday gift but now I am thinking how about 1-18 years for on of my children. Maybe Halloween or Christmas or Back to school pics etc. I don’t know…will have to work it out and get it done. Vickie

  18. Dianne Taylor says:

    I’d love to win the giveaway and look forward to Craft Wars!

  19. Shaiha says:

    I want to decoupage one of the tables in my studio with inspirational photos.


  20. What a fabulous necklace kit! I love the episode with Margot Potter! She’s one of my favorite people ever! The crafty project that I’m working on right now is building and painting props for a new display of ceramic pots in our store. I want to have everything at different levels to really draw the eye around the display instead of making it a sea of ceramic. The trick is not making the tiers stand out themselves, but still look nice. And of course, using materials found in the store or on-hand without breaking the budget!

  21. Margie Conway says:

    I love this contest and I love Craft Wars. My question would be how to apply as a contestant! My husband and I could so rock it! My next craft projects are some altered jewelry. This prize package would save me a fortune for these projects! I’ve been reading these blogs and I have a large collection of things from my grandmother to alter for my daughter and granddaughters! I am especially ;looking forward to some projects using watches. I will definitely be checking some of these vet blogs out! my email is

  22. Gini Cagle says:

    Looking forward to seeing your episode! I’ve really enjoyed watching the series this summer and will miss it!

  23. Lisette says:

    I’m loving this contest! I’m sewing a clutch for my friend’s b-day. Here’s hoping for a season two!

  24. Sheila says:

    my favorite craft wars so far was probably the Beach/backyard furniture! I loved what they created! Great show, so fun to watch!
    Love your necklace too!

  25. Laura Dassance says:

    Can’t wait to see you tomorrow! My next project is something simple–hairbow holders! The last project I have left to organize her accessories! Thanks so much for the chance!

  26. Moira Coon says:

    Love-love-love the show!

  30. Jennifer S. says:

    LOVE!! Can’t wait to see you tonight on Craft Wars! Right now…I am working on a birthday party for my little man…making lots of pirate stuff!

  31. linda g says:

    I LOVE to repurpose stuff I find at garage sales and thrift stores, so Craft Wars is right up my alley! My next project is BIG garden/fence art using old fan blades and glass vases, plates and candleholders…

  32. So fun!

    I’m crafting some tiki-themed items for a vintage tiki bar I just recovered (almost done)!

  35. Love Craft Wars. Great necklace, and thanks for the chance to win!

  36. Shar says:

    Looking forward to tonight’s episodes but sad to see the season end. It went by so fast!!! But I’ll still be crafting every day as usual till next season. 🙂

    Thanks for the chance to win so many fabulous prizes!!!

  37. WooHoo! Season ending show will be awesome & can’t wait for it! Thanks for the chance to win this pretty prize too! 🙂

  38. Katie W. says:

    Loved the episode with Angela Daniels! Too bad she didn’t win! Her spooky ship was awesome! thanks for the chance to win!

  39. Katie80 says:

    I’m either going to work on the 15-foot long scarf from Dr. Who or some Christmas stockings I’m making for my friends. Actually, I’ll probably work on both at some point.

    I love to watch Craft Wars while I work. It really motivates me!

  40. sandyh50 says:

    I am working on a mini banner today. I had so much fun watching Craft Wars this summer!

  41. Sue B says:

    Wow! I am just amazed at the amount of prizes in the big give away. I am so hoping to win so I can go crazy on new projects.

  42. Kriss Cramer says:

    The show has been great! Just when I think I want to be on the show, the pop craft has something to do with sewing. I panic. I think it would take me an hour to come up with an idea let alone sew it. I think the best part of the show is the creative crafts that are made within the time available. Amazing.

  43. Kathy says:

    What I have to stay up for two shows, lol! I look forward to your show. Really have enjoyed them all – hopefully there will be more seasons and a few tweaks – the first challenge sometimes makes me sad – its always an uber talented person who walks away on that one, sigh.

  44. Karen says:

    That season was SO short!

  45. Maxine Hodges says:

    I will be waching at 11pm. I hate to see Craft Wars come to an end.
    Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful prize package.
    My next craft project is a steampunk necklace!

  46. Tonya says:

    Latest project is sorting my over 40 lb. collection of buttons by color to display in decorative jars.
    I hope they have more seasons of crafts wars.

    Thanks, Tonya

  47. Who’s that craftrageous diva I see on my tv kicking butt with crafty awesomeness?! Oh … yeah … it’s NIKKI!!!

    Seriously, only Nikki would make an arbor AND make it look so freaking awesome in so little time!! W00t!! <3

  48. Karyn says:

    Awesome show! Very creative ideas. I’ll be tackling much smaller projects without such a strict deadline… like a floor cloth

  49. digifigi says:

    Next craft will be a costume for Fruma-Sarah out of Tyvek. Just finished her “pearls” from wood beads, yarn and Viva Decor Inka Gold.

  50. Jenn Guymon says:

    What wonderful giveaways!! Love the necklace! Blue is my favorite color!!!!! I only got to see 2 episodes because I work on tuesday nights. I’ll have to see if I set up my DVR to record it. Can’t remember! 😉

  51. Charlene McCreight says:

    I loved this season of Craft Wars….. What an awsome give away. I love your button necklace kit. My next project is going to be a fall related 3D paper item.
