You Sew Girl - The Giveaway
Well, what an exciting couple of days it has been!
Along with my Cosmo Fun Fearless Female Nomination on Monday, I also received a signed-by-the-author pre-release copy of You Sew Girl.
I've been watching Nikki toiling away over the last year or more, putting her heart and soul into the making of this book - writing, editing, making samples, testing, taking photos, getting everything perfect.
I was so proud to be able to help along the way by testing some of the patterns, and heading along to one of the photo shoots.
It's so wonderful to see the end product - an amazing craft book by a fabulous Australian author!
There are so many projects inside that I can't wait to make, and all of the patterns are in an envelope at the back of the book.
It's also full of all the best tips and techniques to improve your sewing skills.
Now of course, there's absolutely no way that I'm giving up my copy (and it already has my name on it)..... but I do have an extra copy which I'm giving away to a very lucky blog reader. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. The giveaway will close on May 1st (the book release date) at 8PM, and the winner will be chosen by the random number generator.
If you can't wait that long, you can actually reserve your very own copy and pre-order You Sew Girl.
After May 1st, it will definitely be available at all good bookstores, and directly from Nikki's shop..... a little bird might have also whispered that there *may be some copies available to buy from the Nicole Mallalieu Design stand at the Australasian Quilt Convention?
*Please don't hold me to that, just in case the planets don't align and they're not quite ready in time!
