Giveaway: Two Books by Marcia DeCoster

September 23, 2013, 14:51 pm  Posted by Lark

Did you know that some of Marcia DeCoster’s die-hard fans call themselves Marciettes? (I’ll let you in on how that’s pronounced: “mar-shet.”) Well, this blog post gives you the chance to win a copy of both of her books…and if you’re not already a Marciette, you’re going to become one!

One lucky person wins a copy of Marcia’s new book, Marcia DeCoster’s Beads in Motion, and her previous book, Marcia DeCoster’s Beaded Opulence. To be eligible, simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Monday, September 30, 2013. One winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries on Tuesday, October 1, 2013. Click here for the official rules.

And while you’re waiting breathlessly ’til next week to hear if you’re the charmed person who scored the loot, click here for a free project from the new book! THIS GIVEAWAY IS OVER. THE WINNER WAS SANDIE SINATRA OF RHODE ISLAND.

    I do not call myself Marciette, all the same I am a devoted fan of Marcia. To tell the truth, I am älready a happy owner of “Beaded Opulence”, but have a friend who can’t afford to buy it, and I’m sure she would be very happy to get one. And of course I would be very glad to get “Beads in Motion”!
