{Blog Bash Giveaway} Fabric A to Z book by Dana from MADE

Welcome to Family Ever After's 2nd Blogiversary Bash! I'm so excited to partner with some of my favorite companies to bring you some very exciting giveaways. There are 12 total.... check every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday in October for something new. All the winners will be announced on Halloween! Thanks so much to YOU for continuing on this fun blogging adventure with me! xoxo, Rach H

TODAY'S GIVEAWAY:

When I was a student at BYU, I took a textiles class. At first, I didn't think I'd like it. But as it turned out, I actually LOVED it! I loved learning the differences between synthetic and natural fibers. I loved memorizing different types of fabric, their uses, and properties. I have a whole notebook full of swatch samples and descriptions. Fabric has become my new obsession lately, and I just love touching and swooning over different fabrics, and feeling its "hand." A few months ago, Dana Willard (from the blog MADE), published a book all about fabric, called Fabrics A to Z. I am all for "continuing education," so I bought the book right away, and I love it. It's such a great resource to have on hand.

And guess what-- when I bought one for myself, I actually bought another one to giveaway! Yep, I will be shipping this book to the winner. (This giveaway isn't affiliated with Dana in any way. I purchased the book on my own, and love it, so I'm excited to share a copy with the lucky winner)!

  52. I now follow via GFC. I am SO happy I found your blog. Not for the giveaways only, but because I can tell you have great content. I have a box full of fabric swatches from my Textile class 30 years ago. The only thing I kept from my college days. Now that I sell vintage fabrics, I think I need a microscope so I can tell what the fiber is. :)
