As promised last week, when I reviewed Susan O’Connor’s book, Monograms: The Art of Embroidered Letters, today, I’m giving away a copy!
If you’d like to add your very own copy of this wonderful, lovely, instructive, exquisite book to your needlework library, read on, my friend…
As I said in my review, this is definitely a book you want in your needlework library, if you have any interest in the traditional methods of creating exquisite embroidered monograms.
The book (at the moment) is somewhat rare – although I have it on good authority that it is still available in French through Amazon France – but it is being re-printed and will be available later this year, in August.
If you can’t wait until August – or if you want to save the book money to buy supplies (and who wouldn’t?) – then feel free to enter today’s give-away! I’ll send the book to a randomly drawn winner, anywhere in the world.
This Give-Away is Now Ended

What appeals to you most about hand embroidered monograms? (Is it the personalization? The elegance of them? The timelessness of them?

Just tell me why hand embroidered monograms speak to you.
3. Please make sure you leave a recognizable name on your comment, either in the “name” line on the comment form, or in the comment box.

That’s it! Easy as buckling your shoe one-handed while standing on your head, right?
No, it’s easier than that, I promise!
I’m looking forward to reading your answers to the question – that’s the Most Fun part of the give-away, for me. I love hearing why people like different types of embroidery or why they’re drawn to them!
Go to it, then – and heaps of luck to you!
