Hello there! Welcome, Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day visitors!
If you are new here, I’ll share a tiny bit about me before I cut to the chase and share about the giveaway.
I’m Shea Henderson. Wife to a handsome redhead and mom to three young and spunky mostly-redheads.
I love to sew clothes for my kids, quilts for friends and family, bags, accessories… you name it. Sewing brings me much fulfillment (and stress relief!). We are proud to call Kansas City, Missouri home. (Go, Royals!) Sugar cookie decorating is sort of becoming an obsession, too.
I’m also the owner of Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio (a sewing and quilt pattern business) and author of School of Sewing: Learn it. Teach it. Sew Together. The book follows along as I teach my eight friends and neighbors to sew, one lesson at a time, over the course of a year. It’s meant to be a book for beginners and also for those hoping to teach beginners. My favorite are the quotes and stories from my students, woven in throughout the book.
School of Sewing just won an awesome award and I could not be more thrilled and thankful! It’s the Gold Award winner in the Craft and Hobby category for the 2015 Ben Franklin Awards, given by the IBPA (Independent Book Publishers Association). Woot! Look here to learn more about the book and watch the trailer!
Now… about that giveaway! I’m giving away a copy of School of Sewing! (I will ship internationally for this giveaway!)
Psssst! I’m also giving away a copy each via my Instagram (@emptybobbin) and my business Facebook page. Check those spots throughout the day to try your luck there, too. I’ll chose one winner in each location on Wednesday, May 13th.
To enter: Tell me… which side do you identify with more: are you the beginner sewist? OR are you the one who wants to teach your friends and family to love the wonderful world of sewing like you do?
