The very kind people at A&C Black Publishers (Bloomsbury, London) sent me a copy of Karen Nicol's incredible book of couture embroidery design and inspiration. I asked, knowing that I'd want to greedily keep it for myself (let's just be honest here), if they'd possibly consider sending an extra copy so I could give one away to you? They said yes!
♥ For this giveaway, one winner will receive one copy of Embellished: New Vintage by Karen Nicol ♥
THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. See below for the winner!
Comment to win! (Do just one of these things. Not all three, silly):

> Facebook - Comment to the post announcing the giveaway (not just anywhere) on the Sublime Stitching Facebook page.
> Comment on this blog post! Please note: comments don't appear immediately. They are moderated first, so don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away, and please don't comment more than once. Also, not all earliest-made comments may appear (they're getting bumped off at the bottom - need to fix that). Don't worry if you can't find your earlier comment! We can see ALL comments that have been made on our side. Promise!
Comments will be closed on Sunday 8/19/12 at 4pm PST. One winner will be picked and announced right here by Monday 8/20/12 7pm PST. Good luck!
P.S. There are some extra images of her work over on Embroidery As Art.
