Crafty Chica Glitter Give-Away!

posted on May 28, 2009

It’s been almost four months since my book, Crafty Chica’s Guide to Artful Sewing, has been released. Within that time, I’ve heard from scores of women who had so many heartfelt and happy things to say about the book. And for very vast reasons too! For some, they cheered that the four-alarm contrast of colors and patterns made them giddy. Like Cyndi Garcia of the Here she is showing off the Yarn and T-Shirt Skinny Scarf project she made!

Others said the book motivated them to break out their sewing machine and get busy, like Christy Petterson of

“I had an idea the other day for a new little something that I want to sew, and reading Kathy’s book really sealed the deal for me,” she said.

Some said they even went out and bought a machine to get started from scratch! There were a few who admitted the projects strayed from their style, but still considered the book a gem thanks to the positive message and essays. Some of my favorites have been from kamikaze crafters like myself who picked up on the idea of personalizing their machine like the one on page 18 of the book! Check out Jean’s (Quilted Cupcake) work of art!

And then there is Stefani Gerard of who made a coffee cozy inspired by the Kamikaze Scrap Belt project. So cute!

I wish I could post each and every picture and letter. I’m absolutely blown away by the kindness and enthusiasm from book readers and crafters. Keep sending pictures, I’ll share them on my blog and link to your site too!

As a way to say thank you, I want to give a little gift - a FREE jar of Crafty Chica Glitter. Now, I can’t find a reasonable way to give everyone a jar of glitter, but if you take the time to leave a review on Amazon or B& today, Friday, May 29th, 2009, email me at, with your address and I’ll send one right out! It is my way of saying mil gracias - a million thanks!!!

Regardless, keep on stitching!

I made a laptop bag for my netbook after reading Crafty Chica's book! It's a great book.
