Sewing with Oilcloth Blog Tour Day 2!!

Welcome to the Second Stop of the Sewing with Oilcloth Blog Tour. We've had to switch things up a bit, due to some rough books. While the gracious Sister Diane from CraftyPod awaits her copy of Sewing with Oilcloth, I'll share some photos from my book release party and give away a copy of the book to one of you lovely readers!

Please check out the Crafty Pod on September 12th for her review and giveaway!
The fine fellas at Feathernesters hosted a lovely book release party for me on Sunday. Despite Hurricane Irene's best efforts, we were still able to have the party as planned. It was very nice to flee my home and Irene's going away gift. Honestly, she really didn't need to drop that tree on our home.
One of our little models was able to make it to the party, I had her signing books too! Too cute!!

Marc and Tony have a lovely assortment of cupcakes; Lemon, Strawberry and Chocolate! As the chalk cloth tags from the book say, they were sinfully yummy and delicious!
Nicole and Brad stopped by with flowers from there sweet shop Nicola Flora! How sweet was that.

I want to thank all of you that came out to wish me well! For those of you that were unable to make it because of storm recovery, I'll be sure to invite you to the next Richmond signing.

So let's talk giveaway! I would love to send one lucky winner a copy of the book and 2 yards of oilcloth! Please leave me a love note and I'll pick a winner tomorrow night.

My first visit to your blog & I find it delightful. So sorry about the tree on your house thanks to Irene, but glad that everything else seems to be OK.

Congratulations on your book - it looks like it will be a fine addition to many a crafter's library.

My best shopping bag is made of oilcloth and is one of the most durable and most used items I own.

I'm going to follow your blog and look forward to lots more good reading and fun ideas.

Best wishes,
Kerri (Earringopia)

I just heard about this book today from How About Orange.

I've been putting off a couple oilcloth projects because I'm a little intimidated (table cloth, banquette cushions) and so am now very excited for your book!

Can't wait to browse around your blogs a bit and see how much it adds to my "must sew" list!
