    I still haven’t accepted that googlereader is going away, so I still follow you on there! But, I did open a feedly account to help me transition when the day comes that googlereader is no more.

    I’m entering for my Mom who lives in the States, I think she would like ‘seams to me’, thanks for the giveaway.

  10. ashley scarborough says:

    I would pick Anna Maria Horner’s Seams to Me but its a tough choice, to be honest. Both look like books I would get a lot of inspiration and use out of.

  11. Kristie says:

    I’d love either, but I guess if I have to choose, it’d be “In Stitches”. Tough call. Great giveaway.

  12. racergirl1313 says:

    Please enter my for Seams to Me (I already own In Stitched 😉 ). Thanks for the giveaway! racergirl1313 AT hotmail DOT com

    Long time follower, formerly through google reader now through The Old Reader. Thanks again for the chance!

  14. skh says:

    Love them both but I think my first choice is the Anne Marie Horner as the local library has the Amy Butler book.

  15. Cathi Pedersen says:

    I would be happy to win either book, though I am leaning a little bit more to In Stitches. They are both great.

  16. Bekah says:

    Super generous, thanks! It is quite hard to choose those books both look great, I have eyed them both, but I have Anna Maria Horner’s Handmade Beginnings so I’d love to have her other book. Fingers crossed!

  17. Jenny says:

    I think Seams to Me would be my choice, but if you pick me second, and you already gave it away, give me the Amy Butler! I’m sure I’d like it. Thank you!

  18. Kristin S. says:

    Hello from Minnesota! My first pick would be Anna Maria Horner’s book; I have her baby sewing book (the one with the Quick Change Trousers pattern) and I really love it.

  19. Dede says:

    Either book would be great, but I’d really love Amy Butler’s In Stitches. Thanks so much for the chance at your giveaway!

  20. kmcassie says:

    Both look like amazing books that would be perfect for me. I guess I may like In Stitches a little better, but I like Seams to me, too. Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. kristin says:

    GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. I will contact the winners and announce it here on the blog on Sunday afternoon (sorry not sooner, technical difficulties).

    Thanks so much to all who entered! Happy Mother’s Day!
