I love reading and learning. I am guilty of always having a book or my Kobo in my purse. So for me books are the perfect giveaway. Thank you Marsha!
I would really enjoy Classic Needlework.

Those are nice. I would find that hair book really fascinating!

I would love any of these books. I think the order of my preference would be 1. Hair, 2. Traditional, 3. Bargello.

I've never worked with hair, but I think you treat it like other fibers and spin or twist it into lengths. I had read a bit about it once when I was thinking of making something with hair I'd brushed from my friend's golden retriever.

What a fun give away thanks Marsha one can never have too many books. Along the lines of hair stitching I have only used cat hair and not by design the one time i did use cat hair to stuff a small pyn cushion i found that their hair is very fine and pokes out of the linen making a very hairy pillow indeed. I would love the traditional or bargello book if i happened to be drawn.

I have stitched with human hair quite a few times. My mother happened into a salon at the same time a young girl was getting her first hair cut. The hair is so lovely, long and an stawberry blonde color. Mom was able to safe two envelopes with this hair. When I have a sampler I would like to place it in, I use it. I have stitched hair into 4 different samplers.

If any one would like more information, just drop me an email.

I would love to read the Hair book. I found this link the other day on the Needleprint blog about a hair museum which people may find interesting.

There is also a book available about crafting with cat hair which includes advice on preparing it.

I'd love to be entered for the bargello book or the classic needlework book. I must admit the whole "hair" thing creeps me out. There is a huge collection of "hair" things in the Charleston museum for those who are fascinated with this subject. Thanks Melody

Hello. I'd like to win the Hair Book if my name is chosen. I don't know how to stitch with hair but I have seen samplers and other pieces of needlework made with hair and it is fascinating. Thank you for the give-away!
