I received two lovely books in the mail from publisher Stewart, Tabori & Chang. Sometimes that happens, I just receive books out of the blue. I love giving them away here.
I also enjoy reviewing them but the whole 9 days left to Christmas thing has me in a bit of a panic so let’s just do the giveway part today!
A description of Kata Golda’s Hand-Stitched Felt from the publisher:
Ranging from children’s finger puppets and a tooth-fairy pillow to photo “brag” books, messenger bags, and curtains and blankets, most of these projects can be completed in an hour or less. They are made from basic shapes of wool felt sewn together and customized with unique details, all using simple, large stitches. Step-by-step instructions and templates, along with adorable photos and hand-drawn illustrations, make each project simple to replicate. Playful tutorials, such as how to personalize projects with a variety of facial expressions, add to the charm of this delightful book.
Kata Golda is the creator of a line of hand-stitched felt items that she makes and sells with the help of nine other women out of her home in Port Townsend, Washington. Her creations are available in high-end stores and boutiques, including ABC Carpet, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, and Kate’s Paperie. Visit her website at www.katagolda.com
My favorite idea in the book, a pencil roll for finger puppets!
In addition to the new books we’ve also been receiving a continuous flow of beautiful fabrics plus discovering some interesting things as we tidy up the shop for the new year. This giveaway will include 17 different prizes:
- Kata Golda’s Hand-Stitched Felt – 25 Whimsical Sewing Projects
- 4 sets of 4 quarters each from Rosalie Quinlan’s new collection Grandmother’s Flower Garden for Japanese manufacturer Lecien. Melly & Me also released 6 new patterns this month (Dahlia, Giddy-Up, Lantern Strings, Leon, Little Miss Mouse, My Folio & Folio Jr.). Amazing women!
- 12 Odyssea by MoMo charm packs. Little mix up on our end, these never made it into the shop inventory and we’re making way for new things so enjoy these cuties!
I’m going to make this a quick event. I’ll draw a winner Friday morning. Leave a comment telling me what sewing item you want Santa to bring. Winners announced, congratulations!
Be the first to know: I’m going to wrap up (ha, ha) this holiday giveaway thing with a REALLY BIG ONE on Monday, December 21. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. The comments will only be open for one day so be ready!
