Winner: Day 7 Giveaway of Draping, The Complete Course

arizona_winnerMany apologies for my tardy posting. I’ve had a dear friend and long time customer on the premises, burning the midnight oil for the past two days. Be that as it may, I’ve not forgotten my pretties.

This giveaway –Draping: The Complete Course– was a popular one as well should it have been. I am looking forward to seeing commentary from the inter tubes once it has been released for sale and folks have had an opportunity to sample its intellectual largesse.

To recap, you can pre-order this book now. I’d actually recommend it because it helps the publisher gauge the size of the print run and if they run out, well, you know how that goes, you have to wait until the powers that be decide if and when it may be worth reprinting. There are too many promising products that are never rerun after the first splash because not enough expressed sufficient interest to buy it when it mattered. I can’t tell you how many emails I get from people saying “where is such and such you mentioned, I went to buy it and it’s not available”. Strike while the iron is hot.

But I digress. Arizona was our winner, yay! Arizona: I don’t know if you’re the Arizona I know so it would be good to send me your shipping address so the publisher can ship you the book.  In the meantime, here is a recap of the information for everyone else to stick on their respective wish lists:

    I am so disappointed to hear the second drawing is closed. Although I have been sewing and altering clothes for many years I have always bought the store bought patterns and now want to step up my game and learn the best fitting way to do this.
    I have finally left the work force due to health reasons and decided I need to bring in an income and I love to sew so this seems the perfect option.
    Would you even have used books that people have returned? As i mentioned im in a roygh spot at the present and could use a break. I have a dress form I bought a couple years ago and its still in the box as I spent every moment giving my all to my work untul my health failed me.
