Sew Liberated Book GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

December 17, 2009

Boy, it's been a busy morning! I had a cookie exchange, dropped Lily off at kindergarten, then went to the dollar store. I've finally had a chance to sit at my computer for the first time all day!

To start things off this late Thursday morning, I'm thrilled to offer a copy of
Sew Liberated: 20 Stylish Projects for the Modern Sewist to one lucky Grosgrain reader!

Perfect for that crafty friend or yourself!

Meg McElwee (pictured at bottom) teaches you how to transform your sewing by adding personal touches with appliqué details and other handwork.


Check out my personal review here.


Take your sewing skills to the next level with projects ranging from the beginner's Heirloom Duvet Cover to the advanced Capture the Moment Camera Bag.


McElwee's background as an early childhood educator stands out in the inspired section on sewing for children, which features a chef's hat and apron, an artist's smock, a blanket baby carrier and more.

Step-by-step sewing project instructions, color photographs and illustrations, and comprehensive how-to appliqué and embroidery instructions make Sew Liberated an all-in-one resource and guide. Sew Liberated provides you with all levels of new techniques, creative challenges, and a full range of projects ranging in difficulty and time commitment.


Many of you said that you would like to enter more giveaways, but have various issues with linking. Of course, I want anyone that is interested in entering a giveaway to be able to do so.

Therefore, from now on, giveaways can be entered in three ways:

1) By linking (to your blog, facebook, myspace, or any other site)

2) By leaving a comment without a link or

3) By linking and leaving a comment (this will be worth 2 entries which will better your chances of winning). Find more info under the FAQ page.





If you are leaving a link just use the 'create a link' at the bottom of this post or simply creating a post on your blog and including this link.
If you use blogger just use the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post. If you don't use blogger, that's fine too. Just create a link on your page as you normally would and I will see it using Technorati.
