A little while ago I posted about the new series of Japanese craft books in English, Make Good: Crafts + Life. I am pleased to announce that I am hosting a giveaway of two sets of the first two books in the series, Linen, Wool, Cotton by Akiko Mano and Patchwork Style by Suzuko Koseki. That is, two winners will receive two books each, thanks to the generosity of the books' publisher.
I am loving these new books! Suddenly I am seeing how charming the original text of the Japanese books is. Also, they are basic enough for people who are new to sewing, with simple but lovely projects that anyone can try (although there are more complicated patterns as well, including quilts). If you have always wanted to pick up a Japanese craft book but have felt intimated by the lack of English text, these books are perfect. I am excited to see what other books will be released in the future.
You can also try a number of free projects on the series website.
Please leave a comment to be considered. I will choose two winners at random on Friday evening.
