Good morning, Friends! Today’s the eve of Christmas Eve, and it’s Monday, and it’s just a little over a week before we ring in 2014.
And all of those together make it a great day for a very special give-away!
Today, thanks to the folks at Country Bumpkin, I’m giving away two copies of The Art of Chinese Embroidery, both signed by Margaret Lee.
But wait! There’s more! And this part is quite delectable, too!
Accompanying each copy will be one of Margaret’s project kits that include everything you need to complete one of the projects found in the book, except an embroidery frame and scissors.
One winner will receive a kit for this gorgeous project…
…and the other will receive a kit for this gorgeous project.
Trust me, they’re both gorgeous projects!
And the kits themselves are gorgeous, too. They come packaged neatly in a red foil decorative box, replete with printed fabric, all the silk threads required for the project, lacing threads, clear photographs, and needles. I reviewed Margaret Lee’s embroidery kits quite a while ago – you can check out that review to get a better idea of what the kits are all about.
The book covers both projects thoroughly, so you will find excellent instruction within the pages of your new book!
So, for two lucky winners, I’ll be mailing you a signed copy of Margaret Lee’s The Art of Chinese Embroidery and one complete kit, so that you can learn the art of Chinese embroidery in 2014.
If you’ve been pining for the book since I reviewed it, and want to learn this exquisite art, then this give-away is definitely for you! And although your new gift won’t arrive before Christmas, you’ll still get it early enough in the year to add it to your needlework list for 2014.
This give-away has ended.
This give-away is open to anyone, anywhere. I have the kits and books here in Kansas, and will ship them wherever they need to go!
