Hot Off the Press
Leah Day, Creative Girlfriends Press client and founder of the Free Motion Quilt Project, just released a second edition of her comprehensive guide, 365 Free Motion Quilting Designs.
We helped Leah refresh the look of the book and its cover. New to this edition is a spiral binding that allows the book to lie flat next to the sewing machine.
Inside, readers will find hundreds of quilt designs to inspire their next work of fabric art.
The book will be carried exclusively through quilt shops. For more information, visit Leah’s blog.
The Random Number Generator picked 5–making Emily C. the winner of our Sew Mama Sew book giveaway!
Thanks to all who entered. We appreciated your feedback on ebooks and printed books.
It’s Giveaway Day! (OK, Giveaway Week!)
We’re excited to take part in Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day this year.
To celebrate, we’re giving away copies of two of our favorite books: Stupendous Stitching by Carol Ann Waugh and 365 Free Motion Quilting Designs by Leah Day. You’ll love the fiber art techniques Carol teaches and the hundreds of inspiring quilt designs that Leah compiled from her Free Motion Project blog. Thousands of people have enjoyed the Craftsy classes these authors teach online. Creative Girlfriends Press was thrilled to work on their books.
To win, just leave an answer to this question in the comments section below: When you’re buying how-to art and craft books, do you prefer ebooks or printed books?
Thanks for entering! We’ll choose a random post on Monday, Dec. 16. If the winner lives outside the US, we will send him or her ebook versions of the books.

Paper or Fabric?
Looks like you can get the best of both worlds with C&T Publishing’s new product Kraft-Tex. Take a look at the flickr page to see all the gorgeous ways you can use this paper that cuts, sews and washes like fabric.
Feeling stitchy? Susan Sorrell is hosting a stitch-along on her blog and a private Facebook page. She promises that it will be nothing like your Grandmother’s embroidery…unless you have a very hip grandma.
