Book Giveaway: Sewing for All Seasons

Sewing for All Seasons CVR

“For everything, there is a season…”

I like Susan Beal’s new book, Sewing for All Seasons. The sections in the book are broken up into the four seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. In each season’s section, you’ll find stylish and simple sewing projects: from cute spring headscarves and gardening aprons to winter garlands and wool slippers.

  1. Autumn is my favourite season: not too hot nor too cold, school starts (always exciting for a college librarian like me), and gorgeous foliage.

  2. It’s hard not to pick Fall when you live in New England! So many pretty colors and the start of cooler temperatures. Lovely!

  3. I love spring. The renewal of life and hopes for the future emerge like nothing else one can imagine. Autumn is a close second, because both of these seasons have more temperate weather, neither too hot nor too cold.

  4. Summer… nothing better than hanging at the beach. In terms of sewing Winter is my fave… especially hanging out with my machine on a rainy day.

  5. I’ve always been a big fan of fall. I’m so ready for the cooler breezes, the garden is winding down (but definitely not done!), the school year at my work is just starting up again, and the holidays are near enough to start planning for but not get panicked about just yet.

  6. I love the fall. The hot weather has ended, the crunch of the fresh apples, and the explosion of color here in New England. Spring is beautiful, but with allergies, I would like to be able to enjoy it from a distance.

  7. I love autumn best. This is the season I got married in. Gorgeous oranges, reds and browns with a hint of gold are just glorious.

  8. Despite today being a dreary, rainy day, fall is my hands-down favorite for the colors, respite from summer heat, and promise of my favorite holidays!

  9. I love fall- the crispness of the air, pumpkins, beautiful colors, watching the birds and squirrels fatten up and gather food for the winter! :)

    PS The deadline says the 29th, but I only received this email today, the 30th!

  10. Fall is my favorite season, except that moment of panic when you realize that you haven’t finished your holiday shopping and you only have a couple of weeks to mail out your holiday cards which you bought on clearance in January and now can’t find anywhere in your crafting stash! :-)

  11. I love fall. I live in California, but spent most of my life in Ohio, and I miss the color changes associated with fall.

  12. Autumn is my favorite season–the colors, the change in temperature, Thanksgiving. But by next June I will welcome summer and its sunshine with open arms. For right now I am cheering autumn, though.

  13. My favorite season is Fall, and my favorite month is October. In fact, my husband and I got married in October because it is my favorite month. We’ve been married 28 years now – not a small feat! I love to sew and would “sew” love this book! Thanks for the chance to win! – Wallis Davenport

  14. I love the coolness of autumn after the heat and humidity of summer. Cool mornings remind me Christmas is coming, with all the things to make that that entails…

  15. My favorite season is Spring when all the plants are starting to wake up and make the world green! Baby animals baby plants, I can’t get enough of it! But Autumn is the perfect season to begin a new sewing project!

  16. Spring is my favorite. The thaw brings hope that the bike will come back out and antennas can be built and tested outdoors without frozen fingers. I don’t know how the Chickadees survive the winter but I respect them for doing it.
