Another Scarves GIVE-AWAY

April 15, 2011, 12:31 pm  Posted by Lark
 

I see from my previous give-away post that there are a lot of lovers of Vera out there—and that’s just the way it ought to be! There’s still time for you to sign up to be in that random drawing for a signed copy of the book and two Vera scarves; the deadline isn’t ’til next Friday, April 22, 2011.

So I bought oodles and oodles of scarves to grace the pages of Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose Scarves, and that’s to your benefit. You get a second chance to win other vintage scarves! (And if you didn’t know, Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose Scarves is a new little book that shows you how to unleash the full potential of a scarf or two and transform it/them into some other amazing thing.)

Today’s give-away is for a signed copy of the book and two dotted scarves in red, white and blue. One of the scarves is a diaphanous Vera measuring 44 x 15 inches, and the other is a no-name 30 x 30-inch polyester square. They look great together.

These are the give-away scarves. Very Boden, dontcha think?

It’s totally easy to enter for a chance to win: just leave a comment on this post by 9 a.m. E.S.T. on Friday, April 29, 2011. One winner will be selected at random and announced a week later. Click here for the official rules.

The winner of this giveaway was Ellen Hunt of Lacey, Washington.

I also have an “OBSESSION”(says my husband) with vibrent. colorful things and Soft and silky fabrics.When I search my local Goodwill ;wether it is the visiual or the sensation of touch, I just can’t seem over look them..if they don’t fit I buy it and turn it into something else.I do. alot of recreating from things I find or waste from things I’ve made.I currently am trying to turn some left over fibers and clippings from a scrapbooking project; into textile. I usually just make colorful note paper but I’m looking for new things to do.I would love to win your prize as I am sure this will help with inspiration and taking my craft into a new direction.WISH ME LUCK. ; >

    When i was working I bought lots of scarves at yard sales….then came belly dancing….I am swimming in scarves that I rarely get a chance to wear…this book is a great idea….

    I am not sure the place you’re getting your info, however great topic. I needs to spend some time studying more or figuring out more. Thank you for great info I used to be looking for this information for my mission.
