The Handmade Crafternoon event held at the main branch of the New York Public Library last Saturday was a great success, and really so much fun, thanks to brilliant and hilarious cohosts Maura Madden and Jessica Pigza, and a really great and diverse turnout of valentine-making enthusiasts! You can read more about this monthly series here and here... Also, in today's post on The Martha Blog, you can view a gallery of images of Saturday's event.
As Martha describes, part of the day's program involved a raffle of many favorite Martha Stewart Crafts supplies, and copies of our Encyclopedia of Crafts and Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts; all to benefit the Handmade Crafternoon Program at NYPL.
In that spirit, we are also giving away both these books, along with copies of Maura's Book Crafternoon, a Guide to Getting Artsy and Craftsy With Your Friends All Year Long, and a selection of our favorite Martha Stewart Crafts supplies on this blog—to three lucky winners... all with the intention of encouraging our readers to gather with friends, family, and perhaps even some NEW friends, to spend a few hours making things together. We had a good time, we know you will, too!
For a chance to win, leave a comment about your favorite craft (50 words or less please), along with a valid e-mail address. All comments must be received by 6 p.m. on February 14, 2011. We'll choose three commenters at random to win these prizes.
