All I can tell you is that it will be a little collection of treasures stuffed inside one of these handmade drawstring bags (tutorial should be up next week!) I can give you a hint: think chocolates and candies, tea, crafting supplies (the specific winners can tell me what crafts they do, sewing/knitting/etc), stationary and more. And yes, I did just say winners. There will be two!

Harmony Art Organic Fabric Giveaway

As I said last week, I still have the privilege of giving away this yard of Harmony Art Organic Fabric. Something you may not know about a lot of Harmony Art fabric is that they are an extra wide width. 110” to be exact. So you are getting over 2 times the square footage of fabric per yard! Plus it opens up more options, like sheeting, quilt backing and other large craft projects without having to seam. This particular piece is the Stornetta design in the blue colorway. And silky smooth and organic. It really doesn’t get better.

Rules and fine print about entering the giveaway:

  • To enter to win one yard of Harmony Art Organic cotton sateen in blue Stornetta, simply leave a comment below mentioning what you might make with this yard. (Required.)
  • To earn an extra entry, like Harmony Art on Facebook and leave an extra comment here stating you did so. (Optional.)
  • Only one required and one optional entry per person.
  • Open to residents worldwide.
  • Giveaway will close on Sunday April 20th, sometime in the evening US Eastern time.
  • The wining comment will be drawn randomly and announced here.
  • Be sure to use a valid email as that is how I will be contacting the winner.
  • Do not leave your email address in the comment box. There is a designated spot for it. (Putting it in the comment may cause your comment to be eaten up by my spam filter.)
  • If the winner does not respond by Wednesday the 23rd, a new winner will be drawn.
She Makes Hats eBook Review and Giveaway (closed)

Robyn Devine of She Makes Hats

A year ago I decided to join others in knitting 12 hats in one year. One hat each month. I thought it was pretty ambitious. But recently I came across Robyn of She Makes Hats. She has made it her mission to make 10,000 hats for 10,000 people. This project came to my attention after I was contacted by Asymmetrical Press, a Montana based publishing house run by and for indie authors, to do a review of Robyn’s upcoming book She Makes Hats.

She Makes Hats is a beautifully told story that will no doubt resonate with many knitters. Robyn went through that journey we all went through, stumbling our way into the world of knitting but quickly become addicted after realizing it’s about more that just making something. Through her story, she shares with us how knitting creates hope and warmth, encouragement and comfort, community and connection, for both the recipient and the knitter. Hats were what Robyn was most drawn to and she began making them in earnest, first challenging herself to make 100 of them in one year. Knitting hats helped her through the challenges she faced in her life, specifically infertility, all while offering her the chance to, at the same time, give back. This giving back drove her to set a goal to knit 10,000 hats for 10,000 people, bringing a bit of handmade warmth to homeless persons, sailors, preemies, at-risk youth, friends, family, strangers and everyone in between.

I often think of ways I could be giving back more but worry that I don’t have anything worthy to offer. I’m not rich and don’t have the energy or means to give a lot. But Robyn shows us in this book, just like every knitted item is simply combining many stitches, the grandest gestures are built of many little heartfelt actions.

Asymmetrical Press is also offering one of you lucky readers an e-book of She Makes Hats! The book is due to be released on April 29th, and will be available for purchase on both their site and Amazon. (The winner here won’t actually get their copy until after the 29th.) Simply follow the prompts in the box below to enter:
