Because it’s Friday…because we’ve all made it to the end of another week…because it’s Raining in Kansas (which is always happy news in August!)…today’s a perfect day for a give-away!
And today, courtesy of Stackpole Books, I’m giving away a copy of Cheryl Fall’s Simply Samplers, which I reviewed earlier this week.
Simply Samplers is a terrific book for beginning stitchers who want to familiarize themselves with the basics of counted cross stitch and surface embroidery.
If you want to stitch and don’t know where to start, or if you know someone in that situation, or if you have a child, a grandchild, niece or nephew who would benefit from learning the rudiments of stitching, this book is a good book to get you going! It’s accessible to adults and youth, and is full of good information, instruction, and starter projects.
To find out more about Simply Samplers, feel free to read my review!
