PUSH Stitchery Giveaway!

Look what we got our hands on…

And we couldn’t be more thrilled. Except for one point…we don’t get to keep it.

You do!

That’s right, we have a copy PUSH Stitchery, the contemporary embroidery book curated by Mr X Stitch (aka Jamie Chalmers) that’s been all over the crafty blogosphere of late and debuting to rave reviews. And you can win this copy!

What do you have to do? Just leave a comment on this post and you’re entered! You have ’til Monday, Oct. 3, 2011 at 11:59pm Central time. We’ll announce our randomly generated winner next week.

So what’s all the fuss about?

This new book is a gorgeous collection of cutting edge embroidery from artists from all over the world. It’s got interviews with the creators as well as beautiful full page photos of absolutely divine stitchery.

If you ever feel the need to defend your embroidery as an art form, this is the book to keep on your coffee table. This collection of artists and crafters shows just what this medium can do, and do it well.

Jaime’s collection shows that embroidery is not just alive, but thriving as the counterculture graffiti of today’s crafting generation.  I love it.

And I’m not the only one. You better hurry up an enter, because this book is just dripping with delicious stitches, and you know Craft Bunny’s penchant for devouring all things tasty and crafty.

(though I do promise your copy will be delivered free of chompy bunny marks)

    found you thru embroidery library comments on april fool’s day. which has led to a bigger design collection and a daughter who is now interested in doing hand embroidery! who’d thunk the child who had no interest when she was at home and i tried to teach her would come back to her crafty roots?
    and chompy bites would just add character to ‘my’ book; thanks

    I am so tired of using commercial embroidery designs. Although I do my best to make them my own by changing colors and density of stitches throughout the designs. This would definitely be the PUSH I need to jump off the edge of my creative block into a whole new world of creativity! I know I will soar with this inspiration.
