Hands up – who’d love to welcome the addition of a shiny new sewing book to their collection? Thanks to the lovely people over at Simplicity I can help you with just that! The Simplicity Simply the Best Sewing Book is a must-have for all seamstresses – whether you’re just starting out or need a reference guide to look back over as you complete more advanced projects.
The book contains pages and pages of information on how to carry out various sewing techniques, including inserting a sleeve, creating a cuff, working with lace, doing French seams, getting the fit right, sewing with satin and silk, washing fabric, choosing an overlocker… literally everything you can think of. It sure is the Essential Reference for all Home Sewers!
Here are a few snapshots of what’s inside the book (it’s hardback and ring-bound too so no matter how much you use it, fold over the corners or use it as a straight edge for pattern drafting it’ll withstand the test of time!) So would you like to win a copy? I’ve got one copy of the Simplicity Simply the Best Sewing Book to give away to one of you lucky readers! To enter:
- Leave a comment on this blog post telling me about your current sewing project for one entry.
- Follow me on Twitter (@Sew_Sensational) and Tweet about this giveaway (be sure to tag me in it!) for a second entry.
And that’s it! The closing date is FRIDAY 6TH JUNE 2014 at 12pm, where I will select one winner at random from all the entries. Unfortunately the competition is open to UK RESIDENTS ONLY because this book weighs a gosh darn tonne and would cost me an irrational amount of money to post abroad. I’m sorry! Next time I’ll give away something a bit lighter 😉
Good luck! (and I might throw in a few little extras with the prize, too!)
*This competition is now closed* Thank you to those who entered!
