Win a Free Copy of One-Yard Wonders!


UPDATE, JANUARY 10: Our winner has been chosen by this Random Number Generator and it is Bobbie23nc. Congratulations! Thank you all for your enthusiastic comments and overwhelming response!



This morning, publicist Alee Marsh brought to my attention a fun online event being coordinated by the fabric team at Pink Chalk Studios — a Sew Along inspired by our best-selling book One-Yard Wonders. Over the course of 2011, the team at Pink Chalk Studios is planning to work their way through all 101 projects in the book, in order, a la Julie and Julia — and they are inviting their readers to join in via their blog. What an inspiring way to kick off a crafty new year!

In honor of the Sew Along, we're giving away a free copy of One-Yard Wonders to a randomly chosen winner. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post. The lucky winner will be chosen on Monday, January 10.
