We kick off 2015 with another great giveaway:
this month another wonderful book is up for grabs. Courtesy of Storey Publishing we have the book “sew what! FLEECE” by Carol Jessop & Chaila Sekora.
This 159 page spiral bound book asks you to give fleece a chance! If you might be feeling hemmed in by fragile fabrics & complicated patterns, forgiving fleece allows you to skip right past difficult linings, traditional seam finishes and tedious ironing. (Please note that the images below are not found in the book…..we did not want to enfringe copyright regualtions by scanning book pages!)
There are some really cool (or should I say warm?) projects to sew from hats & gloves to scarves; PJ’s; doggie pillows & jackets; baby bunting; blankets; robes; wraps; skirts; jackets; vests; poncho’s, leg warmers……WOW this book has a lot to offer. And to my way of thinking the best is that these are easy, quick projects that are perfect for sewing while the wind and snow swirl outside!!
AND we thought that January was the perfect time for a book about sewing with warm, cuddly fabrics like fleece.
As before…..all we need you to do to enter the draw for this book is to send us a comment in the box below this post giving us
- Your name – just Mary S is OK. You don’t have to give your whole name
- Your local Janome dealer’s store (we can ship to any Canadian dealer’s store or to your Canadian home address if you live too far from your local dealer to pop in to collect the book).
- AND….we would like you to tell us about a winter project you made with fleece. No need to write a book….we have one for you…..just a quick couple of sentences telling us what the project was & one tip you have to share about the sewing of it.
As previously, we will randomly generate a # by computer & match this with the # allocated to your comment. Please don’t respond more than 1x so that we can keep things simple. We will announce the winner of this book on Monday 2nd February on this janomelife blog.
PS – Day one & the entries are flooding in. GREAT fleece sewing ideas from quillows to dog coats to PJ’s & more…..check out the comments column. You are one talented bunch of Janome sewers…..and it IS January in Canada after all so fleece is pretty natural for us!!
