In an effort to save my bookshelves from bowing under the weight of the books that I’ve accumulated over the years, I’m going to start giving away needlework and craft books that I don’t use. Many of these books relate to hobbies or needlework crafts different from the ones I normally focus on – and a lot of the books were given to me, so … I figure I’ll just pass them on to someone who wants them! So here’s the first of what will certainly be many give-aways, if people like the idea!
The book featured this week is called Blue Ribbon Quilts by Linda Causee and Rita Weiss. If you like quilting, methinks you might like the book! They’re both brand-spanking new.
As you can see, I have two copies! So, I’m giving both away, to two winners.
The book features full-sized quilts and wall hangings. The projects include a photo of the finished piece, patterns for cutting, and information on assembly techniques.
There are some really neat projects in the book. I kind of like the oceanic one. This might have something to do with the fact that it’s 102 degrees here and I haven’t seen a large body of water in over a year!
So – the details –
Leave a comment below, on this post, answering the question “Why do you want this book?” To leave a comment, you need to be on the Needle ‘n Thread website (not in the feedreader or daily newsletter). Click on the link below this post, where it says “Click to Comment.”
The give-away ends Thursday morning at 4:00 am US Central Time. If you haven’t commented by then, I won’t be able to draw your name!
I’ll announce the winners on Thursday, at which point the winners must contact me with a mailing address. If I don’t hear from the winners within two days, I’ll pick other names.
The books will be mailed the least-expensive rate. For overseas readers, I will mail them air mail, if possible – it depends on the weight of the book. In most cases, they should go airmail, but if not, I’ll notify you.
I plan to run these give-away posts as secondary articles on Needle ‘n Thread, until I’ve dispersed all the books I don’t want. The give-aways won’t replace regular content, I hope! It’ll be a bit challenging to keep up the pace, but – who doesn’t like a challenge now and then? If I fold under the pressure, I suppose you’ll know right away!
Have a great weekend!
