Giveaway: Woven Treasures by Sara Lamb!

***FREE STUFF ALERT***FREE STUFF ALERT***






Have you ever wanted to try loom weaving? Do you already do some weaving and would like to try more styles? This lovely book by Sara Lamb may be just what you've been looking for: an introduction to loom weaving that will take you from the most basic beginner steps through more projects that grow in complexity as you make your way through the book.

Sara teaches seven different handmade bag projects to guide you through the entire process, from concept and planning all the way to personalizing and embellishing. There is an excellent materials and equipment section in the beginning of the book, and along the way you will be treated to information on the history of folk weaving techniques.

Is it time for you to learn to weave? Just leave me a comment below, and in a week I will randomly pick a winner to receive this exciting book!

My brother gave me a table loom and I've never used it because I don't know how. This book might be just what I need to get started. Thank you for the opportunity to win it!

Ooh I SO want to do weaving. I've just not had the guts to try it yet :) Now here's a chance to win a good looking book about it - how could I not comment? ;)

What a lovely giveaway! I have always wanted to someday learn to weave but have been intimidated by the wealth of information out there. This would be fantastic to win!

I have wanted to learn how to weave since I was a little girl and a teacher said I was too young and wouldn't teach me!!! I would love to win this book!!!!

Weaving looks so relaxing and sort of romantic.

Linda Augsburg said...

I have friends who took weaving class and loved it! It seems so cool to be able to actually make your own fabric.

Dolores said...

I have always wanted to weave. I have attempted it a couple of times but never got anything finished. ;-)

Kim said...

Oh joy! I love free things, and this book is one that has been on my list since I first heard of it!

Max said...

I would like to make a floor rug from some of my older and not my size now clothing. Maybe this book will give me the 'how to do it'.

I don't have a loom yet, but jury-rigged a wood frame and some shuttles. Would love a copy of the book. Thanks!

Carol Westover said...

Oh my! Another thing to learn ... exciting is a mild word to use to explain my feeling. I've admired weavers for years and wondered if I could ever learn such a wonderful craft. Lovely -- and thank you for being so generous as to give a book away!

I follow your posts from afar! I especially enjoy your tutorials and find them helpful when planning for my own classes.
This may be the first time I'm leaving a comment, and yes, the freebie book is added incentive to comment!

Thank you for this Cyndi,
I've put this book on my wish list. As a textile design student I can see using the information to go with my new loom!
