And the winner is.....

Kris Miller’s excellent new book, Introduction to Rug Hooking: a beginner’s guide to tools, techniques, & materials [copyright 2015 Stackpole Books] made for a lively book giveaway.  Thanks to everyone for the comments and enthusiasm!

The names of new rug hookers, wanna-be rug hookers, friends of rug hookers, and experienced rug hookers were written on the back of my unused and out-of-date business cards.  Then they went into the dye pot [minus the dye, of course].  The response was truly inspiring! 

To make the drawing very official, I had two witnesses helping me. All on the up-and-up!

I’m happy to announce that the lucky winner is Brenda, who commented  “always looking to improve my technique… would love this book!”.  Congratulations, Brenda.   I will contact you for your mailing address, so I can get that book right out to you.

This was so much fun to do.  I will be doing more book giveaways from time to time, so keep a lookout on my blog and on my Facebook business page.

For all of you who participated in the book giveaway and didn’t win, I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Kris’ book.  There is always something to be learned about our favorite fiber art.

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the enthusiasm of rug hookers everywhere!

Congratulations, Brenda!

Congratulations, Brenda!
