Win This Great Book on Beaded Embroidery

beadbookcoverWould you like to win a great book on beaded embroidery? Today I’m giving away a book called Beaded Embroidery Stitching by Christen Brown. Just leave a comment below and you may win a free ebook version of her book.

I’ve never added beads to my embroidery work. Why you ask? Because if I get started, I may never stop! Those shinny glossy bits of glass are so tempting and I’m afraid I’ll soon become addicted. But if there is anything that would lead me into bead temptation it is Christen’s colorful book on beaded embroidery.

She gives you terrific instructions on how to make basic embroidery stitches like the Lazy Daisy with beads. Pages are devoted to making flowers with stitch combinations, beaded edges, and the peyote stitch. But wait, there’s more!

beadbookpageEight projects are included with the book so you can put all that great bead knowledge Christen has given you to work. Create beaded broaches, bracelets, sewing caddies, and more. They are all beautiful and full of color and light.

Christen has put together an informative book on beading that even a novice like me can understand. If you’d like a free ebook version of Beaded Embroidery Stitching , please leave a comment below. A random number will be chosen tomorrow. If you win, I’ll request your email address and send a link for the ebook. Good luck!
