Sewing Machine Basics Giveaway

How do you fancy winning a copy of Sewing Machine Basics by Jane Bolsover?


You can read more about the book in my Sewing Machine Basics post. It's like a complete sewing course for the beginner, showing the basics in the first section and with 11 different workshops in the second, building up your knowledge as you work your way through the book.

Of course, the book isn't only for beginners, it comes with pull out pattern sheets which any sewer can use, and as the workshops take you through different techniques, they would be good for brushing up the skills of more advanced sewers too.

I bought a couple of these books so that I could offer one to my readers. If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning it just leave a comment on this post by twelve noon on Friday the 20th of March 2015. A name will be drawn at random soon afterwards. I usually offer to post my giveaways worldwide, however, this is quite a heavy book so I'm afraid that on this occasion, this is a UK only giveaway as the cost to post abroad would be huge.

    1. You mean you don't want to learn to sew? There's lots of men in The Sewing Bee this series.

  6. Oooh A sewing book, I spend a big chunk of my time sewing or reading. I think that you are never too old to learn, this is a lovely giveaway. I would cross my fingers but that would make things just a tad awkward.

    1. I like how it starts with the very basics and works up to a pattern for something which looks very complicated to the beginner. I'm sure that most people could get something out of this book.

  8. How generous you are Jo. I won't enter this one though, as I won the last giveaway! Poor Miss M's little sewing machine has gone completely kaput, sadly. But a new one is on its way very soon - a pink one!!

    1. I've popped your name in the hat. I've done so many giveaways over the years that lots of people have won one, it's just luck if you win again. What a shame about Miss M's sewing machine, especially as she was enjoying using it so much, but a new pink one will be the bees knees.

    2. That's very kind, thank you. By the way, the pink sewing machine has just this minute arrived!! I will put a picture of it in my next post :-)

    3. I'm sure Miss M will be very excited when she gets in from school, she'll be very busy tonight. Looking forward to seeing it in your next post.

    1. I don't think you can beat having someone to show you what to do, but a book is a close second.

  11. Please enter me, my sewing skills are very lacking unfortunately xx

  12. What a very generous thing to do, but don't put me in the draw as I think I've enough books to sink a ship. I think that is the one I just bought my granddaughter, as I'm not near enough to help her with anything. Take care.
