The winners of this giveway are commenter #36, Penny, and commenter #102, Reine. See the full announcement here.
Have you ever wondered what it takes to turn your crafty skills into a crafty business? Imagine if you could sit down with women who have done just that, maybe have a conversation over coffee, and listen to their stories. You could hear from them how they came to their craft, what their motivation is, and how they manage to get it all done. They’d tell you the biggest challenges – and the biggest rewards – of their crafty endeavors.
In Crafty Girls Talk, Jennifer Forest brings the conversation to you. She interviews 20 women who have built businesses around their craft. Her interviewees span the globe, from Australia to the United States and places between. She talks with knitters, sewers, embroiderers, and more who have followed a variety of paths as writers, designers, store owners, travel guides, etc. You’ll recognize many of the names, but you’re also sure to find some new faces new to you as well. The conversations are in-depth and honest.
If you’re looking for some inspiration to take your craft to the next level, or just want to learn more about women who have followed their craft, this is the book for you. Make yourself a pot of coffee or pour a cup of tea, and curl up with Crafty Girls Talk.
Jennifer has a paper copy of Crafty Girls Talk and a Kindle edition to give away to Craft Gossip readers.
To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment here telling me the question you’d most like to ask someone who has turned their craft into a business. Please also tell me whether you want to be entered for the paper copy or the Kindle edition (or both). I’ll choose one paper copy winner and one Kindle version winner at random from the comments.
Giveaway ends Wednesday, January 30, 2012.
