We finally found a house and we'll be officially all moved in tomorrow (Saturday)! Yay! Which is also the day my part of the Blog Tour begins! What Blog Tour you ask? Why the super groovy one I'm going to be sharing with the ever so talented 'Sew Liberated' author, Meg McElwee to celebrate our books being released of course! Check out the press release below and join the fun!
The Sew Liberated and I Love Patchwork Double-the-Fun Blog Tour: 2 Fabulous Sewing Authors, 2 New Books, 2 Weeks 'til Christmas!
Interweave is thrilled to announce the publication of two new contemporary sewing books: Rashida Coleman-Hale's I LOVE PATCHWORK: 21 IRRESISTIBLE ZAKKA PROJECTS TO SEW and Meg McElwee's SEW LIBERATED: 20 STYLISH PROJECTS FOR THE MODERN SEWIST. To celebrate in style, Meg and Rashida are hitting the Internet highway on a double-author blog tour. Follow the schedule and see gorgeous pictures from their books, learn more about their design personalities, gain a chance to win free copies, and more! During the tour they'll also be giving us a glimpse of their home studios and creative environment on the Studios blog, and at the end they'll wrap it up with a designer-to-designer conversation with each other on their personal blogs, http://www.sewliberated.typepad.com and http://www.iheartlinen.typepad.com. If you're not already following their blogs, bookmark them now and visit often. We can't wait for you to get to know them better.
Want to be a part of the tour? Here's a fun giveaway open to all bloggers! Leave a comment with your blog address on Rashida's blog or Meg's blog on Friday, December 11 (The blog post with the tour schedule). On Monday, December 14 at Noon EST each author will randomly draw one person from the comments to receive a complimentary copy of their book, which Interweave will airmail out. The winners will then have the opportunity to interview Rashida or Meg and post their interviews on January 4, 2010 as the capstone post of the tour.
