#29 – Giveaways!
It’s snowing again here in New England! To alleviate the gloom I have three tidbits- the first: the Word of the Day from the gratefulnetwork.com
You are the sky. Everything else is just weather. ~ Pema Chodro
The second tidbit is from Goodbye Valentino: Sarah is offering a giveaway of my book!
Sarah Gunn, author of the Goodbye Valentino blog, is co-author of The Tunic Bible, with Julie Starr. The Tunic Bible is a wonderful book about tunics: how to make them, including patterns for them and how to change up your tunic with different necklines, sleeves, cuffs, hems. I can’t wait to dive into The Tunic Bible. At Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Tunic-Bible-Interchangeable-Ready-Wear/dp/1617453560/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1520960118&sr=8-1&keywords=the+tunic+bible
I met Sarah in Ohio during the taping for It’s Sew Easy TV; Sarah couldn’t be nicer! We had dinner together in Ohio, with Lynn Browne of Coats & Clark. Lynn told us Coats & Clarks answers lots of questions about their threads and yarns. The wildest question, so far, “Is there gluten in the thread and yarn?” At first I thought this was silly, but as I thought about all the thread ends I put in my mouth to smooth the yarn before threading a needle I rethought my skepticism. If the thread and/or yarn are processed with a starch, it could be a wheat based starch…which could be troublesome. Lynn said there was no gluten in the Coats & Clarks thread or yarn. Live and learn.
The third tidbit is from Paganoonoo: Michelle Paganini, whom I met in Ohio too. Michelle is offering a giveaway of my book too!
Michelle specializes in up-cycling clothing. She sells patterns that create amazing garments from old fabric salvaged from clothing from the thrift store. I haven’t tried her patterns but her finished garments are beautiful, as you can see from the photo above.
You can go to either (or both) blog posts to enter into the giveaways!
