Bad Blogger, Good Giveaway



Somehow I've ended up with two copies of this fabulous sewing reference.

As an apology for my spotty attendance here at the blog, and because I'm trying to keep my rubble under reasonable control, I'm offering my second copy (previously owned by the Chester High School Home Economics Department) for giveaway.

No rules, you don't have to tell me the reason why you want it (though stories are always welcome because they make good reading) - just leave a comment by July 3rd and I'll pick a random entry on the 4th and let the lucky winner know after that.

Keep cool, everyone.

*** Edited to add that, due to budgetary constraints and the price of international postage, the giveaway is U.S. only; if you're outside the U.S. and willing to pay postage, please leave a comment to that effect.

I would appreciate receiving a copy of this book as it brings back happy sewing memories with my Mum. I am now returning to sewing after a long hiatus and the tailoring/sewing techniques in this book would be really helpful.
Thanks for offering this giveaway.

Not too internet savvy sorry so choosing an identity to publish isn't working. Here's my email addy should I be successful.

Neat! I hadn't heard of this book until you posted it, but I'd love to win it. I've been trying to sew more out of magazines like Burda and Manequim because I like the fit better the Big 4 pattern companies, but sometimes the lack of instructions slows me down. I have a few books on shirt construction, pant construction, etc... but I'd love to have one definitive book I can flip open for construction order!

While I can't say I recall anything about this book in particular, little bells are going off in the back of my head trying to tell me that I *once* knew something about it and it should be worth commenting!

Although I think Bell Neice should win since that's her dad's alma mater. ;-)

I've only ever heard of the bishop method and read something here or there. this would be really great to have. Thanks for offering it!

BeckyMc said...

I'd love a chance to have the Bishop Method book. Always trying to improve my "method".

badmomgoodmom said...

Ooh, that's a book I really want to read.

I especially appreciate that she calls them methods instead of "tricks" or "secrets".

Let's just agree to call them methods or techniques and not keep them secrets, ok?

Rebecca said...

I don't have this one yet! I've heard its good.
