(Calling all seed beaders!) Book Giveaway from Lark Crafts -- Beading All-Stars

HEY SEED BEADERS!!!!  I am giving away an amazing book from Lark Crafts which has not been released yet -- you'll be among the first to own it!


The book is called "Beading All-Stars" and it includes 20 jewelry projects from Marica DeCoster, Jamie Cloud Eakin, Mabeline Gidez, Diane Hyde, Amy Katz, Rachel Nelson-Smith, Glenda Paunonon and Liisa Turonen, Sherry Serafini, Melissa Grakowsky Shippee, and Anneta Valious, all experts in their own right.




The book is 127 pages with 20 well-planned, well-illustrated seed beading designs, with nine pages of techniques.  I recommend this book for those who have done some bead weaving or free form stitching before, as the projects tend toward the intermediate to advanced category.  You will NOT be disappointed in the range of projects the book contains!  Plus there are Gallery photos throughout that will get your creative juices flowing even that much faster!


I am giving this book away to US residents only.

(I'm sorry -- international postage would cost more
 than the book -- what's up with that????).


I'm going to try out Rafflecopter for the first time and see how that goes.  Cutting out all the names can take a lot of time, even though Zack loves to do it for me (usually).  There are various options to give you points.  The only mandatory one is that you comment below and have a way for me to contact you (your email connected to your blog or include your email) and remember, US only. I'll have something for International folks soon!

I will also have three books from Interweave/F+W 
to give away soon as well,
so stay tuned!!!
