Giveaway: Sewing Made Simple

As promised, the publishers of Sewing Made Simple (which I reviewed yesterday and loved) are giving away a copy to one lucky reader.

Please note that this giveaway is open to UK residents only. Apologies if that doesn't include you - don't worry, there'll be a couple of giveaways next week which everyone can enter :)




Want to enter? Just leave a comment on this blog post for your chance to win. Leave your comment before 10pm on Saturday 14th April, and I'll pick a winner at random on Sunday 15th April. 

Please make sure you leave a name or pseudonym (no anonymous comments please!) and leave a blog link, Twitter username, Etsy username or email address so I can contact you. If I'm unable to contact the winner within two weeks or the person I pick turns out not to be from the UK then I will pick someone else.

UPDATE: this giveaway is now closed.

I have been making crafty felt items for a few months and selling them on my little brand website (www.facebook.com/feltfromtheheart). I decided yesterday to go to a craft fayre in the summer with a small stand, this book will hopefully provide some new inspiration to make some designs to take to the fayre and sell :)

I have quite a number of knitting books and a couple of polymer clay books but none on sewing. I'd love to be in with a chance to win because though I do see, I'm entirely self-taught in the 'I guess this is how you might use a zip' kind of style. I'm off to get some fabric to make some new curtains for my flat this week. Eek!

What a great giveaway! Loved the review you gave and its now on my ever growing list of craft books to invest in.

My mother-in-law kindly gave me her old sewing machine recently and I would love to be able to do more than sew in a straight(ish) line.

Janey Millar said...

Loved the Hoiokery's comment that she has room on her shelves for another book. I know full well I have no room on my shelves and yet am on Amazon adding to my wish list at least once or twice a week! I loved decent book reviews too, as it always helps particularly when buying online. A good review that answers my questions always sways me, so thanks and keep up the good work. I can always find room on the skyscraper pile of craft books by my bed for one more if I should win, so don't worry about my shelves!!!
Oh and BTW, trying to make my first thing from your book (pansies!) and my cutting out is awful, what do you do / use to get such fantastic outlines/shapes (apart from a lot of practise LOL!)
Thx
Janey
