Zakka 2.0 :: Patchwork, Please! + A Giveaway

There's been some activity behind the scenes and it's a bit of a relief to finally announce Zakka 2.0 :: Patchwork, Please!
You may remember how much I enjoyed the Zakka Style Sew Along last year {enough to make every project!} so when I heard about the new book by Ayumi Takahashi of Pink Penguin fame, I was pretty excited. And then when Lindsey of LRstitched invited me to cohost a sew along through Patchwork, Please!, I hopped at the chance. My copy of  the book just arrived, and honestly now I'm even more excited to get stitching! Here's a glimpse between the covers!
Patchwork, Please by Ayumi Takahashi ::  peek inside

This new Zakka sew along is set to begin June 3, when we'll sew a new project each week with a delightful line up of contributors:


Each Monday one of them will be posting about their project, and we'll all have a week to sew and link up our projects by the next Sunday. Then a prize winner will be announced the following Monday along with the new weeks project. Check out Lindsey's link, here, for some more specifics and a list of our awesome sponsors so far.

Be sure and join the flickr group if you haven't already! You can also keep tabs on Zakka 2.0 via facebook, Threadbias, Pinterest, and on Instagram, using the hashtag #patchworkplease

*** This giveaway is now closed. Thank you! ***
And about that giveaway! I have a copy of Patchwork, Please! to give away! The book will ship directly from Interweave and is only open to US readers.  (So sorry International readers!) Just leave a comment below and I’ll choose a random winner on Tuesday, April 9. Meanwhile, stay tuned and before you know it we'll be stitching up a storm in Zakka fashion!
