I promised you a big giveaway announcement and here it is!
I'm giving away a book!
I purchased Sherry's book right after it came out and I've spent plenty of time perusing the pages for information and inspiration.
Sherry does a great job of laying out the fundamental aspects of bead embroidery.
It's full of information for the beginner, stitches, materials, methods, and is a gallery of some of Sherry's best pieces as inspiration for the advanced embroiderer.
I think I've gleaned from the pages all the information that I can, and so I'm ready to pass it on and share the wealth of knowledge.
My original plan was to destash it in my shop, but I've been so overwhelmed this past month with your response to my tutorials and jewelry that I've decided to give it away to one lucky reader as a thank you.
Here's how to get your name thrown in the hat twice:
1. Leave me a comment telling me honestly what you think about bead embroidery? Do you like the big collars that win awards? Do you like embroidery on clothing or handbags?Have you ever done bead embroidery or are you interested in starting?
I just want your honest opinion on the topic. I've heard both negatives and positives when it comes to bead embroidery, so you're not going to hurt my feelings!
2. Share the giveaway however you want to...blog, twitter, mass e-mails, facebook. Just let me know how you shared it.
I'll draw a winner on June 1st. I know that's not a lot of time, so you gotta jump on board while you can!
Have a great Memorial Day and thank you again everyone for your support!
P.S. I know blogger is being funny about commenting and what not. If you find yourself unable to comment, but want to enter, send me an e-mail at abney_m(at)yahoo.com and I'll add your name to the list!
