Just 12 hours Remaining for the Connecticut Sampler Book Giveaway

Just a few more hours left for you to enter this very special giveaway of the new book: Connecticut Needlework authored by Susan P. Schoelwer, former curator at the Connecticut Historical Society. This book subtitled: Women, Art, and Family, 1740-1840 looks at all the needle arts created in this 100 year period. There are more than 100 examples illustrated, some never seen before, and photographs include details of designs, stitches, reverse sides and sketches. All you need to do to enter is be a Needleprint blog customer  and to send a birthday message of thanks to Dorothy Bromiley Phelan who will be 80 on Saturday. I thought it would be lovely to celebrate her birthday by telling her how much her contribution to needlework history means to us. So, send me your message of thanks for Dorothy and we'll have them all printed out together nicely and sent to her in time for her special birthday.  Closing date is end of Thursday 16th September (Pacific Time). Your message will be put into a draw and the winner will receive a copy of this special book sent directly to their door. (Publication date is October). Simply click here to leave your special message for Dorothy or leave a message on this post.
