Yup, that's right Feeling Stitchy readers. Apparently, we haven't given you enough stuff this month. Thanks to the good people at Hachette Books, we're giving away one free copy of Amy Sedaris' thoroughly bizarre and hilarious Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People!
Make no mistake - this isn't exactly a craft book - I mean if you're looking for instructions and patterns and anything to explain how to actually put things together, you won't find it here. But if you are looking for a thoroughly irreverent, strange book full of laugh-out-loud weirdness, this is the book for you. With headings like: How to roast hot dogs on a rake (p.228), Chorizo neck warmer (p. 262), a chapter entitled "The Joy of Poverty" and a special Crafting Under the Influence section, it's clear that this is not your average craft book. :)
Hilarious weirdness notwithstanding, this book is beautifully photographed and filled with wonderful embroidered details by artist Megan Whitmarsh. You know, I couldn't help but be inspired by this book - maybe next time it can include a few actual patterns for us crafters? That's my only suggestion. :)
So here are the rules for this giveaway:
-Only residents of the U.S. or Canada are eligible to win
-No P.O. Boxes, please.
-Winners will be subject to the one copy per household rule, so if they win the same title in two or more contests, they will receive only one copy of the title (or one set in the case of grouped giveaways) in the mail.
Edit: 1/31/11, 9 AM - Comments closed - winner announced soon!!!!
