A Sort-Of Giveaway


I’ve been going through my sewing room.

And I have rather a stack of crafty books and mags to pay forward.

Instead of chucking them all on trade me I thought I’d see if any took your fancy.

So… it works like this:

If you want it just make a comment (first in best dressed!) saying which one/ones – or all – that you want.

All I ask is that you pay for the postage or collect them if you are a Chch reader (or have a friend here!). That’s why it’s only sort-of a giveaway.

I’ll leave it open for a week and after that I’ll put the leftovers on trade me as a bulk lot.

Hopefully you can see all the titles in the pics. There are rather a stack of Golden Hands mags which you might want as a ‘set’.

Don’t be shy, say you want them all if you want to. And because you are my readers and I love you I’ll answer questions too. Some classics for the retro lovers in here.

If you do ask a question I’ll answer it below rather than emailing so just check back here.

** Fairly obvious, but I do want these to go to a home where they are wanted so please only ask if you do want them for you or you know someone who will be thrilled to have them**(not because you want to sell them)

  1. You’re a generous Lady. My friend Jennifer would love the mag/book with the crochet paisley pattern in please. She hasn’t seen this – just me. Todays her birthday and shes had such a tough year – losing her older brother, family in Chch to worry about etc. Shes a real “goer’ & runs the knitting group Knitcetera that I belong to ….where we have such fun gathering to knit, yarn bomb, knit sculpture & talk & share. I think a surprise pattern would be a delight for her. I’m quite happy to pay post costs. Thanks Miriam.
