DIY Holiday 2014 is the premiere issue of a new publication that is being released as a special edition of Interweave's Stitch magazine! If you are a lover of all things hand-crafted, this is for you: 25 beautiful projects that you can make for the holidays, or make just because you want to learn something new! And guess what? I've got three of them to give away! More on that in a bit...
There are eight different art areas that the projects fall into: crochet, knitting, quilting, modern sewing, needlework, jewelry making, mixed media, and weaving. As you can see, there is something for everyone, and a lot of inspiration to help you kick-start your next obsession. Personally, I'm really intrigued by a new-to-me technique called ply-split weaving. Many of the projects are marked as "cool crafts on the cheap". That's helpful too, don't you think, especially at this time of year?
Would you like to win a copy of this magazine? I've got three that need to go to good homes! Here's what you need to do...please read this carefully. Leave me a comment here and include your email address. If I don't see your email address, I won't be able to contact you. No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person. You are welcome to spell it out if you'd prefer, for example, cyndi at mazeltovjewelry dot com. If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice! Deadline: December 3, 2014

This sounds like a great idea for a new magazine and I'm looking forward to seeing it. I think this will be right up my alley.
Thanks, Kay Crichton
