Handmade Style

Handmade Style Book Giveaway


Happy Friday everyone! I feel like a giveaway is in order. I’m very excited about seeing projects sewn using my book, Handmade Style. It’s the best part of doing what I do, seeing what you make. So today I’m giving away 3 books, signed by me.

I think the sewing community is a wonderfully generous group of people and I’m happy to be a part of it. If you have a chance, be sure to check out the #HandmadeStyleBook hashtag on Instagram (some are posting to #HandmadeStyle too, but there are lots of other miscellaneous pics in there). Also, if you use Flickr, check out the group, Noodlehead Tutorials & Patterns. I need to pop in there more often! So much goodness!

Handmade Style by Anna Graham, book giveaway

Here’s a lovely quilt my friend Marta (From Marta with Love) finished! Isn’t it beautiful?! Check out her full post here and here. It’s the Picnic Plaid Quilt pattern from the book, it has two other sizes as well!

To enter:

  • Open to everyone! I’ll be reserving one copy of Handmade Style for an international winner and two copies for US and Canadian winners!
  • Leave one comment. For fun, tell me, how do you stay up-to-date with your favorite blogs or makers? Do you use bloglovin’ or feedly, subscribe to their newsletter, follow them on certain social media sites? All of the above? I’m curious! Or if you want to answer a different question, what sewing project is next on your must-make list?
  • Giveaway closes Sunday, September 13th at 10 p.m. CST. This giveaway is now closed, thank you to all who entered!

Have a great weekend!

ps. Did you know that my daughter took the photo on the cover of the book? She did, and she was 8 years old at the time! Also, the ‘handmade’ script on the cover, that’s my writing. There’s also bits of it scattered throughout the book, too. Kinda fun, right?!

      I subscribe to email and follow daily on blogs. I’m home with cancer so I have plenty of time to see and follow blogs .

  2. Mary Cordell says:

    I have used Bloglovin. Now I keep a list of favorites. I have them divided into categories. I enjoy checking in when there are several post to catch up on. Congrats on the book!!!

      Hi there! Zandra from Sweden here. Mother to Lo, a five months old girl. Next on my to do sewing list is a bag that a can have underneath the stroller. At the moment there is a wire basket. Not that practically when living in sweden with many months of rain and snow.
      All good,

  3. Alissa says:

    I follow my favorite blogs on bloglovin’. I spend way to much of my day on it, but I can’t help myself!!

  4. Talina says:

    I follow your blog on feedly, and I follow your instagram, and pinterest….
    as for sewing projects…. I’m thinking about making myself a skirt!
    Also, I’ve made 4 poolside totes this year – one for me and three for gifts – everyone loves them!
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  5. Margo says:

    I follow blogs on Feedly, but I started an instagram account this year so I could keep up with people that way and also share what I make with designers. It’s fun to log in and get little glimpses of what people are doing, and it’s a pretty easy way to share what I’m making as well.

  6. Leah says:

    Since the demise of Google Reader (RIP), I use feedly to follow sewing blogs!

  7. lisamcgriff says:

    I follow my favorite blogs on Bloglovin and a few very special blogs by email.

  8. Claudia says:

    I follow blogs through bloglovin. I’ve been seeing handmade style projects pop up all over the place and want to try some! Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy!!

  9. Sarah Olson says:

    blog lovin. all day everyday. (at work… shifty eyes…)

  10. Amy S says:

    Mostly social media and newsletters, but there are so many great ones that it’s hard to stay current with them all 🙂 thanks for the great giveaway!

  11. Cristina Galvin says:

    I used to subscribe some through bloglovin but now I’d say primarily social media like FB and Twitter.

  12. Kathy says:

    I generally follow blogs on Bloglovin and get newsletters. But I might start following more on Instagram too.

    I love to use Bloglovin’ to keep up to date with my favorite bloggers. Thanks for the opportunity!

  15. Lindsay says:

    Bloglovin and Instagram!

  16. Kiran says:

    I use Instagram and Feedly, now that Google reader is gone.

  17. Stephanie F says:

    I use Bloglovin and IG as sources of inspiration.

  18. Selena E. says:

    Mostly social media. Facebook & Instagram.

  19. Serena says:

    I don’t really follow anything on a blog reader anymore (it started when I stopped blogging myself). I’ve followed my favorite bloggers on Facebook and Instagram. It became too much and was an easy way to pare down to my favorites.

  20. Riley says:

    Bloglovin’ all the way! Your book looks lovely. I have it on my must-have list!

  21. Heather says:


  22. Patti says:

    Thanks Anna! I would so love to win your book – everything I see made from it is just beautiful! For following blogs I mostly use Bloglovin, but I also subscribe to a few, especially if there are extra perks for subscribers!

  23. Micheline Trottier says:

    I use Facebook to keep connected.

  24. Kim says:

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of your book! Mainly, I use feedly and Instagram and to a smaller extent Facebook and newsletters.

  25. Ayelet says:

    I use Bloglovin, although I’m honestly not that big of a fan of the format so I’m interested to see how everyone else responds! RIP Google Reader 🙁

  26. Amy says:

    I follow blogs through bloglovin’ on my phone. I no longer have Internet access or a computer at home. The next sewing projects that I have lined up are a bunch of skirts for my daughters. My 6 yo is super excited that she’s FINALLY getting her poodle skirt!

    After that I have a couple of large tote bags planned. One with natural colored duck canvas & turquoise lace.

  27. Cyndi says:

    I don’t have the time for Twitter or Instagram so I am currently using NewBar on my mac to keep up with all of my favorite blogs. I would LOVE to win a copy of your new book Handmade Style.

  28. Tina says:

    Dear Anna, I would LOVE to win the book.

    I use bloglovin, but I think Instagram is even better to stay up to date.
    Instagram totally is the new blogspot 😉


  29. Caity says:

    I use Feedly these days. Logging all the future projects I want to make while my baby is nursing or sleeping.

  30. Jana says:

    I use Bloglovin’ but also follow favorites (like you!) on Facebook and Instagram.

  31. Lynne Tilley says:

    I use Feedly to follow all my blogs and I love it. It’s very reliable and I can keep up with hundreds of other sewing/quilting enthusiasts! Thanks so much for the chance to win this fabulous book!! I’m such a fan !!

  32. Heather Mallady says:

    Instagram is the best outlet for me to track designs and projects.

  34. Katie says:

    I would love to win a copy of your book! I use Bloglovin to stay up to date with all the blogs that I follow.

  35. Clemencia says:

    Congratulations on your book! I am so happy for you 🙂 I used to get updates by email and that was not a good idea when you follow more than 1K blogs lol so I do bloglovin, I have the app so I get updated while waiting in line, or etc etc. 🙂 I really hope I can win your book, I really need that push to start sewing again, I haven’t done it since I was in my 20’s and now I am 40 lol

  36. Eileen DiPietro says:

    I’ve been wanting this book so bad especially since I see what everyone is making from it on Instagram and because well your patterns and instructions for your bags are flawless! I keep up with blogs using Bloglovin, sometimes it takes a while for me to keep current with them but early mornings, with a cup of coffee before anyone else is up is the perfect time to catch up!!

  37. Vanessa Hernandez says:

    Greetings from Costa Rica!! I’d love to get your book!!
    I stay up to date by following my favorite’s bloggers facebook pages, and you are one of them!
    Your work is amazing!

  38. A Hoiland says:

    Hello! I’m a feedly user.

  39. Sina says:

    Hi Anna,
    I would also love to win your book, since I started sewing only recently. I follow your blog on feedly.
    Have a great weekend, too.

  40. Maureen says:

    I follow my fav blogs on Bloglovin or their newsletters, wherever I can find them. I love this book, thanks for the chance to win!

  41. Mary Gregory says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! Your book has been in my amazon cart forever!

    I use bloglovin’.

  42. Ginny says:

    I use feedly and instagram (surprisingly little crossover between the two!).

  43. Brittany says:

    I usually use bloglovin and subscribe to newsletters. Then those that I don’t read regularly, I follow on social media and will hop over to the blog when I see a link that interests me. But the next project for me is new pillow covers for my couch.

  44. Amber says:

    Facebook keeps me most up to date on my favorite blogs 🙂 I would LOVE a copy of this book!

  45. Natalie says:

    Oh fun! I’ve seen so many of your book projects out in the world and they are lovely. I like feedly best for reading but I also use bloglovin because I like how I can browse the categories for new blogs.

  46. Thank you so much for your generous offer. Books like yours are very hard to find in Portugal 🙁
    Answering your question, I use blogovin’ to keep up with my list of favourite blogs and in some cases (blogs that I only follow one topic) I subscribe the newsletter. Social media only for my top 10 😉
    Have a nice weekend!

  47. Joan says:

    Bloglovin and Facebook provide updates – Facebook is probably more reliable since I seem to miss posts when I rely on email updates. Your book looks fantastic – super excited for you! I started following your site when Pinterest led me to you while I was looking for tutorials on sewing zipper pouches for travel. Your tutorials are very well written and broken down in such a friendly way that new projects are way more fun than daunting. Keep up the GREAT WORK because you really are making a difference to folks like me!

  48. Manette Gutterman says:

    I follow my blogs through Bloglovin, Facebook, IG, and Pinterest. I need inspiration daily with my coffee☕️

  57. Krystn says:

    Your creations are beautiful! They incorporate form and function in a wonderful one of a kind way.

  60. hinzkj says:

    I follow blogs on feedly and often also on facebook. I love your patterns and would love to win a copy of your book :).

  61. Lindsay says:

    Feedly, facebook and the grams – love your look!

  62. Janelle Jones says:

    I.LOVE.THIS.QUESTION!!! Reading all the responses is enlightening, as I’m new to following creative blogs (to fill my soul). Generally, I have my faves (like noodlehead and mamalovequilts and … ) and check in off links I’ve saved (cumbersome) for ones not off the top of my head. Also I subscribe and get pinged via email. And, for this look, I saw your post w/ the link and jumped over … Thanks for the inspiration and for the insights on ways other people follow. Hope the info is valuable to you too.

  63. Jill Jackson says:

    I follow on bloglovin, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook! I would love to win your book! If not, I will definitely be buying it!!!! Love your blog, patterns and your creativity!!!!

  64. Sara says:

    Bloglovin! I’m just starting to dip my toes back into the sewing pond and have decided to sew Easter dresses for my 3 little girls (3.5y, 23mo, due in Oct). I’ve got my hands full, so I’m giving myself ALL winter to sew the dresses and knit up some cropped sweaters to layer overtop.

  65. Janelle Again... ;D says:

    Also, great portrait for the front cover. Clearly your daughter has creative genes. One of my “little” ones is a junior in college studying fashion design. I’m hoping if I win the book she will be as inspired by your work as I am. Thanks for the opportunity.

  66. Teri P says:

    I have my favorite blogs on my Top Sites on my desktop, and I use Pinterest. I haven’t decided what my next project will be just yet.

  67. Megan says:

    i mostly use bloglovin and Instagram to keep up! And for the second question, I am really wanting to make the market bag out of your book!

    Love from Belgium !

  70. alexa says:

    I use theoldreader.com and have hfolders within it to separate my different interests. Your book looks absolutely wonderful by the way.

  71. Mary says:

    Bloglovin, nice to have my favorites all in one place.

  72. Courtney Z says:

    I really like to subscribe to newsletters for the blogs that I particularly enjoy. I typically follow them on bloglovin’ as well, but don’t check it very often. One thing that I HAVE been doing for those that I don’t want to miss a post is following them on FB so that I get a notification on my feed that they have posted. I think that works the best for me to actually SEE it. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I LOVE all your patterns.

  73. Charlotte says:

    Ooh this book looks beautiful & I’m so impressed your daughter took the cover photo. I follow A LOT of blogs via Bloglovin’ and I also follow my favourite creatives on Instagram too. I’m addicted to both:) P.S I’d be an international reader.

  74. Catherine says:

    I follow you on Feedly and Pinterest. Right now, I’m mustering up the courage to attack the buttonholes on an Aster blouse. Thank you for the opportunity to win your gorgeous book.

  75. Hilari Sheffield says:

    I’ve been following more on Instagram lately than anything else.

  76. Stephanie S. says:

  79. Sas says:

    I follow my favourite blogs with bloglovin. Yours I have been reading for a long time now and I love that you make so many different kind of projects. The clothing, the bags and purses, I love them all.

  80. mskhofhinn says:

    Yay! I’m very excited for a chance to win. I generally follow my blogs with bloglovin’

  81. Bethany A. says:

    I follow many on Bloglovin’ and sign up for newsletters. I like their Facebook pages when I get the chance, but (is it only me?) I’ve actively avoided adding Twitter to the cacophony that is my life.

  82. Jessie Schutt says:

    Oh my! This question made me realize that I’m a little blog obsessed. I mainly use bloglovin’ so that I don’t miss anything, but I also sign up for newsletters and follow blogs on instagram and pinterest. I just love to see all of the pretty things!

  83. Monica says:

    I follow lots of blogs on Bloglovin’. I am also addicted to Instagram. Thanks for such amazing giveaway. Wish me luck 🙂

  85. I follow blogs with bloglovin’. Thanks for the chance to win!

  86. The bloggers I like I follow on facebook or Instagram.

  87. Emily C. says:

    I use Bloglovin and Instagram. I am finishing up a quilt top right now, and getting ready to start several pairs of mittens for my kids for the coming fall/winter (mittens are such a good way to use up little pieces of fleece!).

  88. Kari says:

    I love the personal touches! How fun for your daughter to see her picture on the cover of a book!!
    Bloglovin’ and IG for me.

  89. Sonja says:

    I use feedly! Thanks for the giveaway!

  90. Heather LeVeque says:

    I need this book – one of my favorite blogs. I follow updates via Facebook for the most part. Kudos to your daughter for the awesome picture!

  91. Meghan N. says:

    I’m pretty old school. I bookmark my favorite blogs, though I do follow those that have Instagram accounts on Instagram, too! I’m a beginner sewer, and I’ve only done a few simple projects. I’d really like to make my girls some satin Christmas dresses this year, so I’ve been practicing like crazy!

  92. I use Instagram first and feedly second. I get only about 3-4 email newsletters, it’s not my favorite way to keep up with the blogosphere. And I hate Facebook, so that’s definitely OUT.

  93. Lisa Weiner says:

    I follow on feedly – thank for offering this giveaway!

  94. Amy Harward says:

    I usually stay in touch with my favorite “makers” on Bloglivin’ and Instagram. It’s fun to see what they are working on day to day, in between the blog posts 🙂

  95. Tina says:

    I receive emails and follow on Pinterest and Facebook. I would love to make the Leather Bottomed Pouches. I never have enough bags, totes and pouches. Your designs are the best. Thank you for this chance to win the book.

  96. maninsanchez says:

    I suscribe to their newsletters, follow them on instagram and facebook … 🙂

  97. Barbara says:

    I follow links on your blog, on Fringe Association, and on Grainline Studios to find other sewing blogs or sites and pattern ideas. Next on my sewing to-do list is a little doll bed, pillow and blanket for my granddaughter’s first baby. I’d love a copy of your book.

  98. Rhea says:

    I keep up with my favorite blogs through social media or subscribing to their newsletters. I love Instagram.

    My next sewing project(s) will of course be Halloween costumes for my two of my three littles. I have hand sewn Halloween costumes for the last 22 years (my oldest is 22 and I’ve only stopped making her costumes in the last couple years).

  99. Sheryl says:

    I use Feedly to keep up on blogs. I have been looking at this book and would LOVE to have it! I’ve just started sewing a few zipper pouches and knitting project bags and I’m hooked. I can see my fabric stash growing next to my yarn stash!

  100. Sophie Zaugg says:

    Oh, I would love to win your book ! I have a list of favourite blogs in Blogger. I am an international reader (from Switzerland). Thanks for the giveaway !

  101. Marnie Soom says:

    I use feedly and follow some designers on Instagram as well. Thanks for the opportunity to win, I’d love to check out this book!

  102. Elise B says:

    Facebook and Newsletter!

  103. smonakey says:

    I just received an email from Amazon telling me that shipment my copy of your book has been delayed, so your giveaway is so very timely! If i win, I can cancel my order & still have your book!. I use Feedly to keep track on the blogs I follow. I’m not all that big on other social media, though. I don’t keep up with Facebook, InstaGram & the others.

  104. Amy M says:

    I subscribe to feeds using Blogger and love to spend my break times reading new posts.

  105. Claire Collet says:

    Hello, Thank you for this giveaway! I follow you on Facebook and I am an international follower!

  106. I keep up with Bloglovin’ and thanks so much for the chance to win! This book is on my Christmas list for this year 🙂

  107. I use bloglovin’. It is nice to be able to see which blog posts I haven’t read yet or to mark read for the ones I don’t feel like reading.

  108. Katie says:

    I need this book! I use Feedly for blogs 🙂

  109. Lin says:

    I used to check my bloglovin more but as I’m constantly in FL or instagram I tend to just follow my faves (you included) in social media. Thanks for the chance to win your book. It looks fabulous

  110. Sheila Keeling says:

    I usually subscribe and also do trolling on the internet!

  111. Katina daems says:

    I follow you on bloglovin. It has become a daily ritual to check in and see all the inspiration from around the world!

  112. Karla Yoshinaka says:

    I technically use Bloglovin’ but actually rely on Facebook a lot – that’s where I saw this post!

  113. Rachel Wofford says:

    I can’t imagine trying to keep up with all my favorite blogs without bloglovin’!

  114. Grace says:

    I am another mourner of Google Reader. Now it’s feedly for me. I should really figure out what Instagram is one of these days. AND I am about to sew another open wide zippered pouch (thank you) for a birthday present. Thanks for the giveaway, the book looks beautiful.

  115. I’m a huge fan of Instagram, but I use Feedlly for blogs. Another app I can’t live without is Pocket. I store any article that I want to save in there to read later. I can read it offline and save on data if I’m not around wifi. This means that I’m never without something to read.

  116. ESheen says:

    I mostly just follow on Facebook and Instagram, and a handful of email newsletters, but it sounds like I should really get my Bloglovin set up!

  117. Elke says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I use bloglovin’.

  118. Mel says:

    I requested your book from the library but there’s a waiting list. I’d love to win a copy! I follow blogs with bloglovin’.

  119. Jessie Aucoin says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I follow “my” blogs on bloglovin’ but then, whenever possible, also follow them on Facebook and Instagram. I like that I can see different aspects of the bloggers lives by following them on different social media accounts.

  120. I follow blogs mostly through Bloglovin. Instagram is my second favorite way to keep up with them. Facebook has become a major way I track bloggers though. I manage social media accounts for my day job, so I’m always on Facebook following blogs related to the industry.

    I’m itching to make a tote bag, but just can’t come to a decision on a fabric.

  121. Margie says:

    I don’t follow blogs with any app …. i just have my faves and check in when I can!

  122. Renae says:

    I follow on Bloglovin. I would love to win this book and start sewing projects from it!! renae1225@gmail.com

  123. Patti Krueger says:

    I do facebook and instragram and email. I think your book is awesome!

  124. Martina says:

    I mostly follow via bloglovin’. So whenever I have time I can catch up with the blogs I like to read, as yours, lol!
    Thanks so much for including us overseas in your give away. And say hi to your daughter, she did a great job with the cover picture. i really like it!
    Hugs from Switzerland, martina

  125. Junglewife says:

    I subscribe to all my favorite blogs (including yours) with Feedly, since the demise of Google Reader…

  126. Debbie says:

    I mostly follow blogs via Bloglovin’. I rarely read newsletters, though I receive a ton, and sporadically scroll through my favorites on Instagram as well.

  127. I use Bloglovin and Instagram to stay up to date.

  128. I follow my favorite blogs, including yours, on Bloglovin. You daughter took a great photo. Congratulations on the book.

  129. christina says:

    I’m old school Blogger dashboard but I have a Feedly feed just in case.

  130. Mei-Lyn says:

    Hi, I’ve tried to find your book here in Belgium, but couldn’t find it so far. So I would love to win this one!
    I follow via Bloglovin’, Facebook, email,… Any way I can because I love to follow all this creativity. I gives me lot of new ideas.
    My next projects are a couple of winter dresses for me and my girls.
    Happy weekend!

  131. Debbie says:

    Congrats on your book! I follow blogs (including yours!) on Bloglovin’. Thank you for a chance at winning your book!

  132. mamacatquilts says:

    I love instagram for it feeds my desire for eye candy, but photos are never enough to fulfill my curiosity. So, I also use Feedly to organize my favorite blogs into categories to peruse during my spare time. Thank you so much for sharing your creations and content over the interwebs!!

  133. Fiona Pullen says:

    I’d love to win a copy of your book, I’m in the UK so this is an international entry.

    I used to subscribe to people’s blog feeds but I never seem to have time to read my blog reader so now I keep up to date with the latest posts via social media – Twitter,Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. A very select handful of blogs I subscribe to their newsletters.

    As for next projects I have several bags planned including a handbag, an overnight bag and a big bag for storing my son’s toys in.

  134. Kyrian says:

    Thank you for your giveaway offer:-) I follow designers by subscribing to their newsletter or blogs and RSS feed as well as Facebook. .

  135. mauri says:

    Love that your daughter took the photo cover (my son is also 8 and has a phenomenal eye with the camera! They are amazing little people, aren’t they? kiddos!)
    As for keeping up with blogs, I am old school… I type in the address of my top 5 that I follow (1 is you, of course).
    And my next project? Halloween table linens, napkins and a center table runner out of some really fun fabric!
    As for your book, I have been waiting for my local library to get it! What a joy it would be to own my very own copy! Thanks for the chance 🙂

  136. sewsingular says:

    I like to follow on Bloglovin’ because I don’t have instagram and Facebook sometimes has too much other info on it. I am starting a new quilt for my aunt soon. Plus, I would like to sew a bag for my mother for Christmas and one for a lady that I work with. I will be busy sewing! Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

  137. I’m on bloglovin’.

  138. Sarah says:

    I use bloglovin’ but also just keep a “favorites” page in Safari so I can easily check up on my favorite blogs 🙂 I have a baby quilt, a cargo duffle and some other things on my to-do list!

  139. Susan Gray says:

    I follow using Feedly. I am embaresssed to admit how many blogs that I follow. It’s so great to have a constant source of exciting ideas and projects. There are very few quilt shops near me so with the exception of blogs, my only inspirations are from major quilt shows. Thanks for sharing!

  140. Thea says:

  166. Leah Corbin says:

    I follow on feedly, subscribe to newsletters & follow them on Facebook & IG. Thanks for the giveaway!

  167. Jocelyn says:

    I now follow blogs like yours on Feedly. I had been on Bloglovin but they kept adding more bars across the screen that were taking away more of the actual blog to look at. Thanks for your generosity! And your daughter did a great job with the photo!

  168. Debbie says:

    Subscribe to their emails and follow on fb

  169. Sonia says:

    I use Bloglovin’ to keep up!

  170. I have been using Feedly for some time now & I like it. My next project is going to be a quilt for myself-my last quilt has been well loved by my black Lab so it’s falling apart. Time to make a new one!

  171. Vicki H says:

    I follow blogs with GFC, Bloglovin and email on some. If I didn’t follow so many I could probably get more done, but I don’t want to miss anything.

  172. Hannah says:

    I have been coveting a copy of your book! I follow makers on pinterest (frequently stalking your hashtag!) and blogs using The Old Reader on my computer and Feedly on my phone.

  173. Denise says:

    I follow on IG and bloglovin

  174. Betsy Smith says:

    I follow blogs by email and IG feeds. I love blog and book hops where I meet new crafters.

  175. Sarah white says:

    I love following you and other imaginative crafters on Instagram. I love seeing the different ways to use fabric, using materials I’d usually pass by, or not combine together. Using Instagram lets me just click on the links and have a mooch through blogs and websites. There is soo much gorgeous work out there…I just need to get off the internet and start sewing!! I follow you, Amy sinibaldi and jeliquilts among others.

  176. Wendy C. says:

    Instagram! I love how easy it is to find new artists by clicking through photos.

  188. Kelly says:

    Instagram or when I get a chance to relax on the couch I check in through my favorites list on my computer

  189. Cheryl says:

    I use feedly and have so far avoided instagram. But I may be weakening. ..

  190. Tanya says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win your book! I subscribe to your IG feed and get so much inspiration from it. I’m a novice when it comes to sewing but your patterns make me want to get better. At the moment I’d like to try my hand at making bags, totes and lunch carriers.

  191. Amanda says:

    I follow my favorite people on IG and I also link them on my blog, so I can stay up to date! And for fun, my next sewing project is a Retro quilt from Simply Retro.thank you so much for the chance!

  192. Kim says:

    More than ever I’ve been finding a lot of new artists, crafters, and blogs through Instagram.

  193. Shawn says:

    I follow on Instagram! Just use the handy link and peruse your blog!

  194. Kristi says:

  195. Britta says:

    I use bloglovin.

  196. Elizabeth says:

    I follow you on IG and via Feedly.

  197. Stephanie says:

    Hi Anna, thanks for the chance to win your book! I use feedly to follow blogs and I love Instagram too. There’s endless inspiration there! 🙂

  198. Mary Claire says:

    I follow blogs on bloglovin’. I also subscribe to a few blogs newsletters. And if I REALLY enjoy their blog content I usually follow on Instagram. But actually if I think about it it’s kind of random the bloggers I follow on Instagram. It’s interesting to me how we choose the blogs we follow and where and why we are faithful to some blogs and not others. And I’m so excited about your book! Been saving it as a splurge for myself! Love all the fun things I’ve seen you post pics about from it! Fingers crossed!

  199. Martie says:

    I just keep a window open on my mac with tabs of blogs I follow. Guess I should find a better way! Love your projects!

  200. chelleqlter says:

    I follow via Bloglovin. This past week, I have been trying your Open Wide Zippered Pouch. So far, I’ve made 2, just to practice putting in a zipper. I must say that now I keep looking for fun fabrics to make another pouch.

  201. Glenda Tedesco says:

    I follow my favourite blogs on Bloglovin’. It’s like one giant magazine with all the best articles.

  202. Bonnie says:

    Feedly is my blog follower of choice but I must admit I go back to it infrequently now and instead use Instagram as a quick view of project ideas and inspiration. Even my own blog has lay dormant for far too long. I applaud those who still put in the time and effort required for a single project entry. Just waiting for your fabulous new book to restock in my fabric store but winning it would be wonderful too! Thanks for this chance!

  203. Alexis says:

    Mostly instagram and then i try to check blogs once a week

  204. Jacy Magers says:

    I keep up with my favorites via Facebook and instagram,my favorite being instagram! I’ve been wanting to make the carry all pincushion for a while now so it would be amazing to win!

  205. Barbara Lasky says:

    I follow my favorite quilters mostly with Bloglovin and Instagram. I subscribe to some news letters as well. I made the Supertote over this past summer and it is my all time favorite bag. I have no doubt there would be many projects in Handmade Style I would love.

  206. Gwenn Scarbrough says:

    I follow on Instagram, but I think I’m going to check out bloglovin! Thanks

  207. Michelle says:

    I use Bloglovin to keep up with most. Some I only use Instagram because they post a lot of content on their blogs I don’t want to weed through. So when I see an update about a post that I would like to read on IG I hop over the that persons blog and read it. Thanks for a chance in the giveaway.

  208. miestaflet says:

    Bloglovin and Instagram are my favorites. Would love to win your book 🙂 Enjoy your weekend, Anna!

    Instagram. I sadly use only that, I’ve tried the email thing I someh always miss it.

  212. Julie O says:

    I follow different bloggers in different ways, some newsletters, others twitter. Now that I have an android phone, Google keeps me up to date with websites I visit frequently. I think they call it “Google Now”, but I always call it “Google Knows”, because they do!

    My next sewing project will be an apron. It’s ridiculous that I wear a boring store-bought one!

  213. Anne says:

    Instagram by far and away! Love your style!

  214. Cassie says:

  218. Kristi says:

    I use Feedly to keep up with my favorite blogs, but have also been known to stalk on Instagram and Twitter.

  219. Fullerton Street Studio says:

    I follow my favorites on Instagram mainly. Love love love seeing and being inspired by what my fellow makers are up to. I found an awesome vintage suede duster style coat at Goodwill that I’m going to take apart and make clutches with. I scored some fun wool at a thrift store too, so I think I’ll use that for them too.

  220. Shannon says:

    Feedly and Instagram.

I have used/made lots of bags with oval bottoms and NONE fit perfectly! My hats off to you on this…how about a hat in your next book? I use Blogloving to keep up, but have favorite blogs I check regularly. Yours is on the top of my list, it’s amazing. Thanks again and here’s hoping!

  228. Emily Gillen says:

    I do the newsletter and follow on social media 🙂 I’m looking to make a big bag with lots of pockets 🙂 I’m so excited to be able to have a chance to win your book 😀

  229. Meghan says:

    I was seriously about to go buy the book today, but ran out of time with two little nappers in my backseat! I’ve been daydreaming about the rainbow clutch pattern ever since I saw your umbrella prints version the other day. And a few caravan totes are not far down on my list either!

  230. Karen Cole says:

    I’m a Feedly fan, Pinterest peruser, Instagram idoliser and a Facebook friend!

    Working on a grandmother’s flower garden for my girl and a batiks quilt for my parents….hand quilting which is going slow because it is so hot! I’m thinking of making a coat too!

    Been wanting your book for a long time but waiting for you to get it in your shop….will that be soon?:)

  236. Megan Collins says:

    I usually follow through social media and blog lovin. I love the things you make and design! I’ve tried the wide open pouch, but have been nervous about larger bag making. 😉

  237. Holly Marsh says:

    I do it all- feedly, social media, and newsletters. I tried bloglovin, but wasn’t s fan.

  238. Hilde says:

    I normally follow a couple of blogs who I check almost daily, and they have their own favourtie blog list, that’s how I go from link to link ;-)…thanks for the giveaway, the projects in your book look fantastic, it would be great to win this giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!

  239. Gina Sears says:

    I have the blogs I follow on my Favorites on my laptop. With just a click I can scroll and see what’s new. It also allows me to save a post like your free Madras Tote Pattern 🙂 I just finished aquilt for a grandson due in December and started a lap quilt for my couch.

  240. Jen M says:

    I just open up all the links in my folder and then go through them one by one in the morning while I wait for my kids to get ready for school. I should probably do something more efficient but this works for me.

  241. Emma says:

    Whenever I’m looking for project inspiration I just visit your blog, no blog-following tools or social media required 🙂 Thank you for all the wonderful tutorials, they were instrumental in teaching me how to sew!

  242. Caroline says:

    Big fan of Feedly! I also subscribe to a couple of newsletters. Would love to make that wallet so I’m hoping the book will make it to Stockholm 🙂

  243. Allie says:

    Would LOVE to win your book! And that is so cool that your daughter took the cover photo. I use feedly primarily, but also Instagram. When looking for inspiration I search flickr tags and groups, but I do feel like instagram is slowly taking that over.

  244. Ginette Rennie says:

    Next on my must-make list is a circle skirt using some really fun kitty printed fabric.

  245. Kristen says:

    I use Bloglovin’ and check it a few times a week.

    Ps. Can’t wait to get your book. Hope I win!

  247. Lydia says:

    I’m a visual person, so Instagram is my favorite method (Less words, more pics). I also find their ‘recommendations’ for other accounts helpful to discover new artists.

  248. Rachael says:

    I use feedly and Instagram and I’m just about to embark on making a king size quilt for our new house :-/

  249. Sonja says:

    I use Bloglovin, Instagram, and follow many blogs individually. I saw your book today at the Quilt Expo in Madison.

  262. Jen says:

    I follow on Bloglovin’, some on Instagram, and I’m starting to follow on Pinterest too. There are some people I follow by email newsletters (really, very few) and those are mostly pattern designers so I hear about sales or new products.
    That’s an incredible photo that your daughter took!

    I start off your (an) Instagram, double tap for some love, then proceed to the web if something catches my eye.

  300. Cecilia says:

    I mostly follow my favorite bloggers on Instagram! It’s my favorite!

  301. Wendy says:

    I used GoogleReader back in the day, but when that went kaput I switched to Feedly. It works pretty well both on my computer and my phone (where I read most of my stuff).

  302. Stephanie says:

    I follow them on blog lovin and do pretty good about keeping up with that. I do find that instagram is what most folks have gone too for just more day to day stuff. I like that too.

  303. Rachel says:

    Your book looks lovely. I’d love to make something from it.

    I stay up to date using bloglovin’ as well as IG 🙂

  304. Julia says:

    My next “must make” project? A bunch of zipper bags for co-workers. They were admiring mine and I promised I’d make them some. What was I thinking with Christmas around the corner?

  305. kasia says:

    If there’s a newsletter, I do subscribe but usually follow in IG. I used to follow on a blog shelf app but felt that I was missing out on certain aspects that we’re posted on IG.

  306. Linda McLeay says:

    Linda from New Zealand here. I follow on blog lovin and also Instagram – great for seeing what others are making and what designs/books etc are being used. Have loved seeing what has been made from your book. Thanks for the chance to win.

  307. VeronicaMade says:

    I follow my favorite blogs on Feedly and a few of my favorite bloggers on Instagram.

  308. Salina says:

    Instagram and feedly

  309. Amy says:

    I typically follow my favorites on IG. It’s pretty much the only social media l have time for right now.u

  310. Trudi says:

    I still really miss Google Reader, I now follow blogs on newsify. I tried a few of the others when reader stopped, but didn’t like them as much. I also follow people on Instagram, fb, Pinterest and Twitter. I’m from Australia.

  311. Alana says:

    I adore your patterns and would love to win your book!
    I use Feedly regularly. I like to search IG, but I miss most updates posted there.

  312. Jana says:

    I follow some on bloglovin and some by email. I have looked at your book at a friends house and would love my own copy! I want to make your storage boxes using coffee bean burlap bags. I have a quilt top pieced, ready to start machine quilting it–my first on a queen size! I just sewed a “buttercup purse” with your “zippy wallet tutorial” as a matching coin purse for a friend’s birthday. Fun!

  313. Ramona says:

    Your books looks lovely.
    I don’t …but will check out bloglovin.
    Next project … A dress for myself 🙂

  314. I use bloglovin and instagram. And since a year, I’m exploring the international blogs not only the german blogs – and i love it.

  315. Cynde says:

    I follow and stay up with my favorite blogs on Instagram and some on Facebook.

  316. Kelsey says:

    I keep up-to-date with Instagram and Bloglovin! And next on my list once I finish teaching my first quilting class next week is a printed quilt for quiltcon! And then after that is a big strip quilt to try to use up some of stash. And after that…. 😉

  317. Anita says:

    I would love to win your book, so many great projects! Everyone seems to be using bloglovin’ so I am going to have to check that out (complete novice when it comes to that sort of thing!)

  318. Lynn says:

    I use Feedly! My next project: baby quilt! I love making them for family and friends.

  319. Nicole says:

    I use Bloglovin and I love it!!!

  320. Erin says:

    I keep up using Feedly and Instagram. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book! Amazon keeps telling me it’s on the way, but they just pushed me out another few weeks again!

  321. Kristin R says:

    Love Instagram so I can see all the beautiful images! I am new to sewing and overwhelmed with all the inspiring projects out there!

  322. Hello Anna, thank you for this giveaway and a chance to win your book :). I use mostly feedly to follow my favourite blogs. I have them in one place and available through different devices, so it’s easy to keep up to date and not miss posts. I also follow a couple sewing related pages on Facebook. Cheers from Poland!

  323. Lesley says:

    I mostly use bloglovin, though I follow lots on FB – FB has the habit of not showing me everything I want to see 🙁 Bloglovin is always there, though not all designers use that either. Your book looks fabulous, well done.

  324. Caroline says:

    I use feedly and instagram. Thanks!

  325. Renee says:

    I follow blogs or newsletters and also Facebook. But on Sunday’s I have just go into podcasts, especially the visual one where you can see the projects and then check out the show notes. It’s a great way to communicate to a large audience. Would love to win your book.

  326. Regina says:

    I use bloglovin. You’re book has been on my to buy list, and I can’t wait!

  327. Emma says:

    Hey, thanks for thinking of the international readers! I use feedly, some instagram and flickr. Amazing handwriting, did you do the NOODLEHEAD blog banner too?

  328. clare says:

    Bloglovin and instagram. Love your designs, and there is a space just right for your book on my shelves!

  329. Rebekah says:

    I follow blogs on feedly. I would love to win a copy of your book, the projects look gorgeous!

  330. Melissa MacAdam says:

    I’m a total Bloglovin addict. It’s my favorite thing to do in those spare five minutes that happen during the day, like when you’re waiting for dinner to cook or for your husband to get ready in the morning. Love your book and your style!

  331. patconverse says:

    Next up on my list to make is a bag for me. I’ve been saying this for too long now, so I really need to do it!

  332. gail says:

    I use Blogger AND Bloglovin AND Facebook — I’d hate to miss a single post. 🙂

  333. Olga S says:

    I have been loving Instagram for that lately! I subscribe to newsletters of those who are not on Instagram. This keeps me (more or less) focused: otherwise, no time left to sew!

  334. nicola says:

    I foolow blogs on bloglovin and also instagram . some I get emails from and some on facebook depends which is the best feed. They tend to vary slightly depending on the platform. Sewing class next weekend my first ever so wish me luck. Lisa comfort trousers.

  335. Carmen says:

    I use feedly, Instagram and Facebook. Love the photo on the front of your book! What a creative and talented daughter you have! Oh, and I’m from sunny Australia ?

  336. Hey, hey, hey! Agnes here – I started using Instagram about a year ago, and have never looked back! That is where I follow you. It is so fun and in the minute living! Cool days will be arriving soon, so I am looking for a good poncho pattern to make before it gets chilly.

  337. Davy says:

    Any more, I follow my favorite bloggers on Instagram. Most of them post on IG about their blog posts. I enjoy seeing what’s going on in between blog posts, too.

  338. SamanthaRI says:

    Looks like a great book! I follow with feedly.

  339. Jodie Tawn says:

    I follow blogs using feedly, but I also follow several blog people on Instagram and on Facebook 🙂

  340. Cate says:

    I follow blogs on Bloglovin. I have a large list of ‘next projects’ in preparation for Christmas. Many of which I suspect won’t get completed with a new baby in the house, but a girl can dream!

  341. Ella says:

    I follow you on feedly. I also try to follow folks on IG I enjoy as well. Not a fan of facebook.

  342. Sarah Boshart says:

    I am an Aussie girl who uses IG to follow those I like and if they post about something I want to read I click through from there. I don’t subscribe anymore as I find it too overwhelming to have loads in my inbox! This way when have some time I have a flick through a page I likes feed and if relevant their blog.

  343. What a fun giveaway! I keep up with my favorite blogs mostly on Instagram and I also use the Bloglovin App. 🙂

  344. Haley says:

    I use bloglovin & instagram.

  345. April Sodoski says:

    I would love to be a winner of this book, its on my wish list! I keep up with Instagram and bloglovin I get emails when new posts are added to the blogs I follow. I usually take time before bed or when taking a break to catch up on posts and pics ?

  346. Erin says:

    I use instagram, facebook, and tumblr to keep up with my favorite makers.

  347. Amanda Janke says:

    Hi there! I’m a feedly user. Also I follow instagram links if it’s a blogger I don’t follow on feedly. LoVe!! your work and would simply adore a copy of your book. From another Australian ☺

  348. Amy Ellis says:

    I would love this book! I follow on instagram and bloglovin’ with my all-time faves on my blog list on my own blog!

  349. Kate King says:

    Greetings from Suffolk, UK. I follow my favourite blogs on Blogger, fb updates and a few favourite ones by email updates. My next sewing projects include a run of 1950s barkcloth lampshades, that I sell through a London store and online, a couple of cot sized patchwork duvet covers for my youngest, and as requested! “an owl oilcloth messenger bag”, for my six year old, who says that she does not want to have the same bag as anyone else in her class! I love your blog and makes, and would love to get hold of a copy of your book!

  350. caroline says:

    I do use Bloglovin, but mainly Instagram and still Flickr ? thanks for the chance!

  351. Kathy says:

    Your book is on my Amazon wish list! I follow you both through bloglovin and on my blogger reading list (old style I know!). In general between IG and bloglovin I get most of my inspiration. I do purchase an occasional magazine and then there are the lovely books on my book shelf! So many plans, not enough time!

  352. Amanda Maese-Herron says:

    Hi! First off, I would LOVE to win this book. It’s been on my Amazon wish list since it came out. As for blog following, I do use the blogglovin app on my phone to keep up with my faves. I use IG to click on hashtags and see what fabrics people have used for certain patterns that own (inspiration). And I’m also on FB and try to stay in the know on there as well.

  353. Andrea says:

    Hi! I usually subscribe to their newsletter. It pops up in my inbox and I don’t miss out on anything.
    I’m planning on sewing a good-bye present for a good friend who is moving back to her home country and I’m still pondering about what to sew. I might sew her a few of your wide pouches in different sizes. They are so beautiful and practical.

  354. Jae says:

    I follow all my favourite blogs on feedly, and love checking pics out on Instagram! I would love a copy of your book, great giveaway.

  355. Nicky H says:

    Wow, there are a ton of comments already!
    I use Feedly to keep track of my favorite blogs. Then Pinterest and/or Evernote to save my favorite posts to refer to later. I love following sewists on Instagram. It’s like a bucket of inspiration! I don’t like when people post the same things on many social sites. You know, like someone’s Instagram post automatically feeds to Facebook AND Twitter. That bugs me. Anyway, love your site. It’s my favorite sewing blog right now!

  356. Gwynne says:

    I use feedly and then follow my favorites on instagram as well

  357. Rachel says:

    I subscribe and I follow on social media! It’s how I found you! Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook let me follow and discover new blogs for my crafting addiction!

  358. Evelyne says:

    Same – would love this book. I follow bloglovin and Instagram religiously. Never miss a post.

  359. Marisa peckham says:

    This is amazing. I need this book!!!

  360. I use Feedly since it most resembles the old Google Reader- it will show an entire post, not just a teaser, so I can read all new content in one place. Thanks for the giveaway!

  361. Brooke says:

    I mainly get info by following Instagram. Facebook a little. 🙂

  362. Narelle says:

    I use a mix of Facebook and Instagram, as well as pinterest and bloglovin’. It really depends on what method the person I’m following uses. Really loving Instagram lately though.

  363. Kristin says:

    What a wonderful giveaway! I use Feedly. I don’t know how I’d keep track otherwise!

  364. Shelley says:

    I follow my favourite things just by reading them (my list isn’t too long) but recently I’ve started using instagram for a quick and easy way to see pretty pictures and inspiring ideas. My next sewing projects are a simple puppet for a niece who just turned one and finishing off a bean bag set for my daughter.

  365. Aileen says:

    I Use bloglovin. Your daughter seems to have inherited your artistic talents!

  366. dalia says:

  370. Amy S says:

  371. Nikki says:

    bloglovin, and instagram!

  372. Jo Everett says:

    I would sooo love to win a copy of your book – it’s been my most coveted craft book since it came out – I’ve made your great clutch pattern so I know your patterns are fantastic. I mainly use IG or look at my favourites on my blog which sounds basic but works for me 🙂

  373. Raychel says:

    I follow on Bloglovin’ and on Insta! Love them both.

  374. stacy alfano says:

    I plan on making myself a new purse!!

  375. Linda Nelson says:

    I subscribe via email, but that means I get about 100 emails a day. I would like to get a new email address just for sewing blogs, but haven’t done that yet.

  376. Tracy says:

    I use Instagram more than anything, and use feedly to browse blogs.

  377. marina says:

    I love newsletters in my email, always inspiring and informative.

  378. Ioleen says:

    I follow via email. I follow a few blogs and I keep some posts in folders for future reference.

  380. Annie Andrew says:

    I look forward to seeing you on Bloglovin so often. Your emails are so inspiring and informative.thanks

  381. My next project is to design a purse for my 3 year old granddaughter. When we went to the store to buy fabric for a diaper bag for her new baby sister, she informed me that she wanted a bag. I am going to include pockets for her lip paint, a holder for a small notepad and pens, carabiners for her keys, zippered pockets …oh how do I stop with features so I can actually sew it?!

  382. Emily says:

    Instagram! Happy weekend!

  383. Tricia H. says:

    I have blog lovin and also just subscribe to sewing blogs! I will be making a tree skirt with Hollys Tree Farm fabrics! Thanks for this awesome chance to win your book!

  384. Janet says:

    I follow people on bloglovin, newsletters and Instagram. I don’t like Facebook so I don’t use it. I love your style and your fabric selections. Thanka for the chance to win!

  385. Leila says:

    How cool about the cover photo and the script!

    I find that since having children I don’t really have so much time / inclination to visit blogs. Except for the odd time when the mood strikes me, in which case I just go to the blogs I think of. I follow lots of bloggers on ig and Flickr and sometimes click through to blogs when I find an interesting link through one of those platforms.

  386. Noelene Hewitt says:

    Have quite a few of your patterns – so well written, and the end result amazing! Thank your for sharing your passion ! Follow you on Facebook, email and regularly pop over to your website !

  387. Sarah says:

    I am going to checkout bloglivin’ because I need something to manage the blogs other than having them in my Facebook feed. There are just a few that I have come to my email like yours and Really Handmade by Amy – I already have your book on the way because I asked for it for my birthday (put it in my Amazon wishlist so my hubby and twin daughters could place the order) but I am still waiting for it to ship – hopefully next week!

  388. Allanah McCormick says:

    I subscribe because I like to be notified . I have 3 small children and my mind is not organised. I love being reminded via email. I always get excited to see the Noodlehead email and find out what you’re working on. Or if there’s a free pattern. I have wanted to buy your book many times but have not had enough moulah.
    You have amazing style.
    I am trying to make my own handbags atm to sell. And teaching myself to quilt. First quilt was inspired by your triangle quilt.
    Keep creating Anna xxx

  389. Tina H says:

    I love getting all my blogs in email, right there in front of my eyes.

  390. Marg Harm says:

    Blog lovin is my big one. But I also subscribe to email for many individual ones and use Facebook and Pinterest as well. Congratulations on your new book. Love the photo – and amazing that an 8 year old captured the moment. Creativity in the making there. My life doesn’t leave a lot of time to do a huge amount of sewing but I take all opportunities! Seeing what others are making does fill my soul!

  391. Love the projects I’ve seen from the book. I follow you on bloglovin and also receive your emails. That way I’m sure not to miss anything.

  392. erin mcsweeney says:

  396. kslaughter says:

    I love instagram and email newsletters! Would love to win a copy of your book! Fingers crossed 😉

  397. Nicole McDonnell says:

    I follow my favourite bloggers usually via Facebook. When they post I go to their blog and check out what is new. Through sewing friends and Pinterest I am learning of new amazing sewing blogs all the time. Next on sewing table is a half finished divided basket but what I really want to make is a pincushion for myself!

  398. Chr says:

    My son wants a Pacman quilt so I am doing some research into historic games! Looks like a challenge because I have to design it from pixels.

  399. I follow you everywhere, and I find when I love a blogger or creative I follow them on all platforms as I love to see what they are upto. It challenges me to think outside my comfort zones and inspires me to do more creating myself. Next on my sewing table is a pair of harem style pants for my 10 year old in a funky patchwork fabric.

  400. Tonje says:

    Greetings from Norway!

    I follow blogs mostly using Feedly – and sometimes via newsletters. Some even theough Facebook.

  401. Jen U. says:

    I’m old-fashioned — I like to suscribe to newsletters to be delivered straight to my gmail inbox. That way I only have to look in one place to check my emails, blog updates, and facebook notifications. A simple girl at heart.

  402. Ann McGorty says:

    Thanks for this opportunity to win a copy of your book. I subscribe to newsletters and check Instagram, Twitter and Facebook daily. My favorite is when I can subscribe to get an email notification of a new blog post. I see that several here like bloglovin so I’ll look into that. Thanks!

  403. janet moilanen says:

    I bookmark the sites I want to visit often and sign up for email updates and newsletters if they are available. Love your book and your style!

  404. Pauline says:

    Instagram is really a treasure trove of ideas and links to fabulous work – often I follow people that others do or post, and in that way come across new blogs and creative sites. I also use bloglovin, as well as direct subscriptions to blogs. Would love to make something from this book – have yet to get it because the Aussie dollar is so bad it makes it very exie$$$$

  405. Jennifer says:

    I subscribe via email to blogs, but more and more I keep up to date by Instagram.
    Love hearing that your daughter to the cover photo on your book! I can’t tell you how excited I would be to win a copy of your book!

  406. hayley says:

    I follow via Bloglovin and Instagram mostly. I do a quick scan on the commute to work. Although I find that there are many bloggers that I still don’t follow on Instagram and vice versa! I would love to win your book. Every time I see something someone has made from it I think to myself “I must get that book!”

  407. Alys Hay says:

    Love your book! I follow you and a couple of other bloggers by email. I really like that because I know pretty much immediately when something gets posted. I also like it because if it is something that I want to refer back to, I can file the email.

  408. Janet says:


  409. annehaun says:

    Your book is on my wish list. I use bloglovin to keep up with your blog and many others. Thanks for the giveaway.

  414. Wow. So many followers. I love this WWW. It brings us together in so many ways. I use Bloglovin, Instagram and Facebook if I’m not on someone’s website. I have a little one so it’s either early in the meningitis or late at night after squeezing in some sewing!

  419. Janey L says:

    I have a favorite list from which I occasionally stray. Your book looks like a new adventure. Thanks.

  420. I usually just go directly to the sites I have bookmarked, but I also follow on Facebook and Pinterest. Haven’t quite figured out how to follow blogs yet, guess I should check out bloglovin. I’ve made quite a few of your projects…too many to list…but the next one on my list is a 241 Tote for me….

  421. Josee says:

    I’m in the midst of moving soon but hoping to get some Noodlehead cosmetic bags and a made by Rae Beatrix top at my girls retreat I host in November.I would love to bring you (your book) with me.xo

  422. Betsey says:

    I follow along on Instagram.

  423. My favorite way to keep up with my favorite bloggers is to subscribe, so that I receive updates right in my mailbox. I know that’s lazy. I also follow some via FB, and I am slowly getting the hang of Instagram.

  424. Jude says:

    i love your book, or what snippets i have seen of it! i would love to win a signed copy! i follow what i can on IG…it’s about all i have time for….so fun that your daughter took the picture.

  445. Robin West says:

    I like newsletters. And the ones that are emailed to me. I’m finally going to finish a quilt for my husband and my bed. I have been making things for my grand daughters. If I win the book, I will make something from it! Way to go. Robin in New Mexico.

  446. rozy rosly says:

    i’m from malaysia. i love your creation so much. i subsribed your newsletter email, followed your instagram & fb so i don’t miss a thing. ^_^

  447. Patti McGarry says:

    I subscribe to the blogs and get updated by email!

  448. Angela Sayer says:

    Instagram and bloglovin make blog following a breeze :). Next on my list is a baby doll basket by Dana Made It for my girl and a friend.
    I’m down in New Zealand I think one of these books wants to travel here!

  449. Heather G says:

    I stay in touch however I can; bloglovin’ for some, feeds for others, newsletters, FB, pinterest boards for companies/people. Which is always why I’m on my phone, tablet or computer (according to my husband). My next sewing project is to design and make a few wine bottle holders/aprons/covers. So rewarding when I turn a pattern I’ve created into a finished product.

  450. Helen says:

    I love receive all the emails, and spend time relaxing and viewing them all.

  451. Kathy says:

    I just take a few moments a couple times a week to cruise through the blogs I like to keep up with.

  452. Dominique says:

    Bloglovin is my way to go, and also Instagram and Facebook.

  453. Lynne says:

    I follow on Bloglovin ‘. I love your patterns and hope I win this book – it looks fantastic

  454. Wow this is so kind! Thanks for sharing

  455. Aimee says:

    Love the projects I’ve seen!

  456. Linda says:

    Bloglovin’ is how I try to keep up but I’m on Instagram and Facebook too.

  457. Annabel says:

    I’m a Bloglovin’ devotee but also keep an eye on Facebook for things I might have missed 🙂

  458. duchick says:

    Congratulations Anna! I would be so happy to win your book! I keep up to date with my favorite blogs through Bloglovin’, newsletters and IG. I could read blogs several hours a day for their inspiration. I love that your daughter took the front cover picture….so personal and special!

  459. Tracie says:

    I get my favorites delivered to my inbox but also follow on Bloglovin.

  460. Ann says:

    Social media and newsletters mostly.

  461. Colleen says:

    I follow my favorite designers on Instagram, through their newsletters, and keep a list of favorite blogs. Your designs are beautiful. Thx!

  462. Michelle says:

    I subscribe to blogs so I get them direct in my email and use Instagram. Would love a copy of the book.

  463. Mary says:

    I receive blog posts via email. Bloglovin doesn’t work on my iPad and they don’t respond to my questions. I know you didn’t ask but I’ll offe my opinion on the frequency of emails/posts. I think “less is more” as I’d rather receive a weekly post than daily. Thanks for asking and for the giveaway.

  464. Follow via my RSS reader Vienna.

  465. Norma says:

    I use bloglovin to follow blogs. I love pinterest too. Thanks for the chance to win your book.

  466. Bonnie Larson says:

    Wow. Looks like a gret book. Thanks so much for sharing. I am an email follower

  467. Brianna schueller says:

    I typically keep up with my favorite sewing and knitting bloggers via Instagram. The next project on my sewing list is the Staple Dress!

  468. I usually follow bloggers on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. Different things catch my eye on different platforms.

  469. Alicia says:

    I like to stay in touch via newsletter or blog subscription and I do prefer the ones that email occasionally – find the daily ones a bit too much for me. Tried social media but again too much noise. My next must sew project is a coat – either one from one of the existing patterns I have (following a Cratsy class) or the Cascade Duffle Coat from Grainline Studio.

  470. Kerrie says:

    I stay in touch via newsletters and Facebook. Love your patterns!

  471. Sandra says:

    I use Bloglovin’ and email subscription. But more and more I have moved to email notification because I find that Bloglovin’ keeps sending me cooking blogs–of which I have NO interest. I also have a list of blogs, like a previous commenter, that I have bookmarked, along with special projects. I don’t use Instagram as I haven’t yet got a phone.
    I understand that your book is a best seller. Well done and Bravo.
    How about a book of quilts?

  472. darlene macdonald says:

    I use bloglovin and love your sewing style!

  473. Adrienne says:

    Thank you for the giveaway. I generally subscribe to newsletters to follow blogs.

  474. sweetalchemy says:

    I love (and am possibly addicted to) Feedly and Instagram. I check them right away in the morning while I drink my first cup of coffee to catch up on what everyone has been making.

  475. Linda says:

    I use feedly to follow your blog. Thanks for all the inspiration and the chance to win your wonderful book!

  476. InstaGram is my daily ‘go-to’ and BlogLovin’ is my leisurely catch-up read when I have extra leisure time (which is it often enough!). My current project is finishing many quilts for the ‘FloodTexaswithLove’ quilt drive for those in Texas who were severely affected by the Memorial Day flooding this year (including many personal friends of mine in Houston). Thank you for awesome patterns (I’m hoping I win one of your coveted books – fingers tightly crossed! Toes too!!!?)

  477. I read all my blogs via their email newsletters they send out. I will also check their Facebook pages for new projects or designs and additional pictures. Since I do not have data on my cell I do not follow instagram.

  478. Anne Woods says:

    I subscribe to newsletters/blogs and follow on facebook

  479. Norah Ho says:

    I subscribe to the blogs I like and follow on facebook. Yhank you for the giveaway!

  480. Jo Ann says:

    I Follow blogs using bloglovin. I also use IG. I love your patterns. I have made several of your bags! Thank you for so many awesome patterns!

  481. Carla says:

    I have loved EVERY project I’ve seen from your book. Thank you so much for sharing it with us your followers. I follow through bloglovin, Instagram and e-mail. I barely have time to read them all!

  482. Karen says:

    I follow blogs on email and on bloglovin. Congrats to your daughter for the great cover! And as a reitred teacher, kudos to you for such fine cursive writing–I fear it’s a dying art. Please pass on lessons to your daughter if she’s not learning it in school–it’ll make my heart sing 🙂

  483. athens11 says:

    I use Bloglovin’ and I look at Pinterest where I follow the bread crumbs of my favorites.

  484. Sally P. says:

    How do I stay up to date? It’s hard, really. I try to follow on bloglovin’ but I really feel like it’s so much harder to keep up than it ever was on google reader. It seems like I look at instagram more often than anything else, just because it’s quicker. I’m a traveling teacher and I sometimes have a few minutes between schools, so instagram is a bit quicker to glance at, rather than trying to read a whole blog post.

  485. Carol says:

    I follow blogs using Bloglovin. I would love a copy of your book! I’ve only made a few zipper pouches — would love to expand my bag making skills. That’s cool that your daughter took that picture. Very nice!

  486. Mary Jo says:

    I subscribe to blogs/makers e-mail newsletters and follow some on social media. Would love a signed copy of your book!

  487. Jera MacKenzie says:

    I follow with Bloglovin’ love your work!

  488. Vicki says:

    I’m hooked on IG!

  489. Anita McKay says:

    So far I’ve relied on Instagram to inspire me to check on blog postings. Think I will check out Bloglovin’ and see what it is all about. Thanks for the chance to win your beautiful book!

  490. Julie says:

    I am a new fan and would love to win the book. I use bloglovin and follow others by email

  491. Sherry Hippiechick Schallert says:

    I am 64 today and keep up with email. I don’t twitter or instagram. It’s to techie for me. Your book would make a wonderful birthday present. I have made several of your 2fer bags. Love them! I’d love to have your book. Thank you for your wonderful blog and tutorials.

  492. Taya@TypeB says:

    I use bloglovin and then I also follow most folks on Facebook too. It’s nice to have a couple different ways to keep up with my favorite creative folks!

    I follow on Bloglovin’ a bit but mostly I follow everyone on Instagram. I find it easy and relaxing to scroll through my IG feed once in awhile and see pretty pics. Your book looks amazing. It was on my birthday list but sadly I didn’t get it.

  497. Beth says:

    I just have my favorite blogs bookmarked and click to check what is new. You work has been so inspiring, thanks for the time you put into posting and just being creative!

  501. farmquilter says:

    The blogs I follow the most are the ones that appear all by themselves in my inbox! I much prefer to follow blogs via email than by bloglovin – that is overwhelming to me!!

  502. I use bloglovin and blogger and subscribe to some newsletters and have some blog posts sent right to my email~ I think I’m pretty well covered! LOL Your DD must be so proud to have her photo on the cover! Great job!! crazy(dot)boutquilts(at)yahoo(dot)com

  505. Gina Coetzer says:

    I follow my favourite blogs by email and then others through bloglovin. I find it hard to post a comment on a blog that has come from bloglovin and this is frustrating to me. I like to use my iPad and bloglovin doesnt work as well on my iPad. Maybe that’s just me! Ha ha . Love your book and I hope I win! I would love to make lots of versions of the clutch bag on the cover! Well done to your very talented daughter for the photo.

    Hi there, I’ll be honest I have never followed a blog. New to Instagram and pod casts though. Blogs are next! ?

  513. Michelle says:

    I use a combination of Feedly and Instagram to keep up with my favorite bloggers. I love how much I learn every day. Thanks for the opportunity to win your lovely book.

Facebook is easy cause I can check in on friends and relatives and all my favorites I follow whenever I get a chance. If I see something I love, I always click on the link to read the whole post. I totally envy your creativity and style – would LOVE to win a copy of your book – thanks for sharing!
    Jody from Montana 🙂

  525. Kathy says:

    I appreciate your stylish patterns! I would love to have your book.

  526. Sharon says:

    My favorite way to follow is by email. I enjoy seeing what everyone has written while drinking my morning coffee ?. I would love a special copy of your book as I have several projects picked out in it. I checked it out at an Oklahoma library then put it on my birthday list! Yes,having your eight year old take your cover photo is pretty sweet..topped off with your writing. It must make you smile every time you see it!

  527. Colleen says:

    I sign up to get the blogs I want on the blog site to have new messages show up automatically in my email . I also get bloglovin emails so there are a few duplicates. I found you from someone else’s blog talking about one of your bags she had made

  534. Nina Rose Odegaard says:

    Hi! I love your blog and have had it marked as a favorite/bookmark on Safari for years and have shared it with lots of sewing buddies. My 14 year old made me an Instagram account almost a year ago and I follow you and other sewing blogers there. I love IG for a quick look around at who has been sewing what….and am always inspired. Of course when I have time and crave more details….I gravitate back to my desk top and my favorites blogs. Thank you so much for being so generous with your knowledge and creativity over the years, you truly are making the world a better, more beautiful place! Take Care!

  538. Betty W. says:

    I’m old-fashioned — I type in the URL! I also sign up for a few newsletters via email. I don’t like all the social media stuff (too invasive), so I stay low tech and it works for me.

  539. Kelley says:

    I follow my favorite sewing blogs either by subscribing to their news letter or following on instagram. Next on my sewing list a dress and a coat and a bag for a girlfriend. So much sewing so little time.

  569. Catalina says:

    Hi Anna.
    Thank you for this generous giveaway.
    The rainbow clutch pattern is what I would like to realise first, and otherwise, my next project is a sarouel for my 2 and a half years old son and a “duvet cover” for his new bed (he left his baby bed only a few nights ago :).
    And to answer your question, the easyest way for me to follow the blogs I like is to subscribe to the newsletter.
    Catalina, romanian but living in France.

  570. Since autumn is almost beginning in Belgium, my next sewing project will be a plaid, or maybe a sweater for my daughter. Or yet a tote bag in some rain walk fabrics, which I ordered and will arrive next week?
    Most of the blogs I follow, are trough bloglovin’, but yours I follow by newsletter (e-mail).
    Thx for all the inspiration you give!

  571. Tine says:

    It would be great to win this give-away! I haven’t seen your book here in Belgium! My way to stay tuned with my favorite bloggers is Bloglovin. I check it every day! So many good seamstresses around that have amazing ideas I can learn from!

  572. Beth says:

    I follow on Bloglovin’, but I really like Instagram for the visual impact it has! Even my hubby will watch me scroll through pics and comment on the ones he likes. : )

  573. Julie Overton says:

  576. Lori Zappala says:

    I use Instagram for following blogs. I wish more people had Instagram accounts.

  577. Kiwako says:

    My very first bag pattern that I tried was a Super tote, I was so scared to try my very first sewing project, but Anna’s pattern and her instruction are simple, clear and so easy to follow. I had so much fun and now I’m hooked on Noodlehead patterns! My next project is a Caravan tote and I cannot wait to try it! I would love to win your book so I can learn new techniques and try more sewing projects. I’ve never ever thought I would enjoy sewing this much. The Super tote pattern really changed my life:) I use Bloglovin to find and follow blogs and also follow some bloggers on Instagram too.

    I cannot wait for Anna to release lots and lots more new bag patterns!

  578. Kathi says:

    I’m a total Instagram addict. Most of the blogs I love have an IG account and they show their latest blog post there. If I’m interested I’ll hop over to the blog. Your Super Tote Pattern sits in my shelf for a while waiting for the right moment that will come soon I’m sure 😉 I thought about buying your book for a while so I’m happy to join your give away. Thank you for the chance to win Anna! Best wishes from Switzerland and https://instagram.com/kathikrause/

And your blog is so inspiring for me! Thank you so much! I bookmark my favourite blogs, subscribe to newsletters and follow some on Social Media. Apparantly bloglovin is a big thing…so I have to check that out!
    My next sewing project is a campfire massenger bag for my boyfriend as a birthday surprise – so exciting, especially as I still sew with more passion than skils 🙂
    All the best from Germany! Sandra

  589. Zenna says:

    I use bloglovin’ to follow blogs. For my real favourites I subscribe to the newsletter and follow on Facebook and Instagram (sounding a bit over the top/stalker like now). Instagram is probably my favourite way to follow at the moment but I also like getting an email from my real faves.

  590. Feedly is my blog reading app of choice but I also love to follow everyone on instagram.

  591. Agy says:

    Hello from Singapore! I use IG and FB :-)))

  592. Fran Bott says:

    I stay up to date with Boglovin, Facebook or any other means that the maker uses. I never cared for Facebook, but most of the groups I wanted to join were there so I had to break down and learn it.

    Hi,from Belgium. My next sewing project will hopefully be a flower girls dress for my daughter Louise. It’ll be my first time sewing clothing, so I’m a little nervous about it. 😉

  594. Deb Chang says:

    Hi from London! I’m really happy you’re doing this giveaway because I love the projects you post on your blog! I keep up with bloglovin and instagram. Instagram is great because not everyone posts full blog posts on their projects but do on IG.

  595. Sarah says:

    My preference is to follow on Instagram or by email… (not an email service thing like Bloglovin). Are you on Facebook?

  596. Nerida says:

    Bloglovin. I’m frantically sewing clothes for my almost 6 year old who is growing up way too fast and out of all last years.

  597. Laura says:

    I haven’t heard of the 2 you mentioned, Bloglovin’ and the other one. I’d go back and get the name but it took me forever to scroll to the bottom I might not make it back! Lol… I belong to several groups on Facebook which keep me up to date and I sign up for newsletters from websites.

  598. shirley cree says:

    use newsblur, feedly, bloglovin, email, and facebook to follow my favorites….. and still miss some interesting stuff….

  599. bobbi dougherty says:

    I do all of the above, lol. And double up on a lot of them too. 🙂

  605. Sona says:

    Wow, this is great! I would love to win.
    Bloglovin and sometimes, facebook.

  606. First of all, thank you for this opportunity! And then, I follow my favorite sewing/DIY bloggers by subscribing on their newsletters, or following their socmed accounts (Instagram and/or Facebook). My next project should be sewing a comfy sweatshirt for the oncoming cold season. It’s a must for me. Just need to find a perfect pattern.

  607. I use blog login to stay up to date with all my favourites. Next on my sewing list is a double patchwork quilt in an Aztec style

  608. Marie Long says:

  610. Elena says:

    I would really like to make the tunic from your book!

  611. Erin says:

    I use feedly and the Google now app on my android phone. If I visit a site frequently it lets me know when there is a new post. It’s actually how I saw this one. 🙂

  612. Jennifer says:

    I just bookmark the blogs I love and catch up on Saturday morning with my coffee

  613. Vicki says:

    Hola from sunny southern Spain! I absolutely adore your blog and patterns, so THANK YOU, THANK YOU! – in fact, I just bought the PDF´s of patterns for 3 more gorgeous bags! Already made the Caravan tote and pouch for my mom, and will make the little clutch purse and Go Anywhere pieces for my sister. Who can have enough bags…NO ONE! 🙂

    I keep up to date with my favorite blogs on Bloglovin´and through WordPress. So many projects, not enough time! I look forward to seeing what other awesome patterns you put on your site and will continue to frequent my little local fabric and notions store.

    Keep the great inspirational blog posts coming and enjoy your autumn season 🙂 Would love to win the book for the International giveaway!!

    Vicki B.

  614. That is fun, that your daughter took the photo and it’s your handwriting. I love personal touches like that. I follow my favourite makers on IG and FB. I also use Bloglovin, but I’m finding it hard to keep up with all the blogs I love!

  615. peggy hendrick says:

    I follow my favorites by email/newsletters…I have not yet gotten into the instagram thingys…and only get frustrated by Pintrest…I do like to keep up with many on Facebook…thanks for the chance to win

  616. Diana says:

    I use Instagram and use Bloglovin’ but I also have a list of my favourite blogs (your on that list) on my computer and iPad and whenever I have a free moment enjoy getting fresh inspiration from them. I have made several of your patterns and love them!!

  620. Nancy McKenzie says:

    I prefer the old fashioned email inbox. One stop shopping!

  621. ersinger says:

    I am thinking I am going to make the leather bottom pouches from your last post. So cute. I am looking for gratitude gifts for some friends and these will be perfect! Thanks!

  622. Christina says:

    I use bloglovin and Instagram:-) My next sewing project should be trousers…but I just got a package in the mail so lace underwear might be jumping the queue;-)

  623. Jeanine says:

    I follow some blogs by email and others by Blogloving. BTW, I love Marta’s quilt!

  628. Michelle Warkentin says:

    I follow by Bloglivin and IG. I’ve been loving your blog for years! Best place to find my favourite bag patterns!

  629. Shelley Parham says:

    It’s great to have a giveaway open to Canadians. Thank you. I follow quilt designers by subscribing to their blogs. I’m not on Facebook or Twitter. Great book.

  630. Laura says:

    I follow my favorite designers by subscribing to their newsletters/blogs and Instagram. I also subscribe to Bloglovin’, but that usually ends up being a duplication. I have been eyeing your book since I first heard of the publication: it is a definite must-buy! Thank you for the chance!

  631. Lisa says:

    I follow on all social media. Never heard of bloglovin so going to try that it too! Love your designs and your instructuons are so good!

  632. annettezee says:

    Wow! 634 comments…I don’t stand a chance but here goes anyway. I follow blogs through Bloglovin’ and I follow a number of people through Instagram. I adore your work and I think it’s totally neato that your handwriting is “printable”! And, your daughter takes fab photos but then again she is your daughter so of course she’s very talented!

  633. Therese says:

    I have a long list of bookmarks that I routinely check every day, like this! http://prntscr.com/8fhghi
    I must check out Bloglovin’ though, it sounds interesting!

  634. Liz says:

    Hello from Canada 🙂
    I follow via Bloglovin. Thanks for being a great source of inspiration! I can’t wait to try some of your patterns.

  635. Kit Little says:

    Hey! I spend a ton of time on Instagram
    Ram these days and also subscribe to newsletters and follow on bloglovin too! I have plans for your trail tote and a duffle/weekender next!!! Thanks for the chance – I know I would love your book!

  636. Erika M says:

    I subscribe to newsletter and follow makers on Facebook and Instagram.

  637. Terri Timmons says:

    Oh Sister, I do it all! I subscribe to newsletters { so many e-mails 🙂 }, I’m a bloglovin fool, I save stuff to my favorites, I subscribe to DIY self’s and magazines… you name it I’m doing it!

  638. Dani G says:

    Bloglovin’ and Instagram are by go to sites for certain blogs I follow. Also use Pinterest occasionally when I am looking at a specific design idea.

  639. Kristin says:

    Hello from Germany! I follow you via Flipbord. There I have a Magazine wehre I flip inspiring articles.

  640. sue says:

    Next on my sewing list is a quilt with the new line Eden by Tula Pink. I am absolutely smitten with the tourmaline colorway!

  641. I follow on Facebook – Pinterest – Bloglovin – eletters – I have purchased or tutorials patterns so far – cant wait to see what your books has inside to make <3

  642. I use feedly mostly but I also follow a few on Facebook and Instagram.

  643. Dyann Cox says:

    Bloglovin, email newsletters, Instagram…..I read everyone’s blogs every day and they truly inspire me! I look forward to it every morning 🙂 I would LOVE to have a copy of your book, CONGRATULATIONS it is FABULOUS….and CONGRATULATIONS on your fabric line too!

  644. Dawn Jones says:

    When I find a Blog I like I usually subscribe by email, if I can find that spot on their Blog (you wouldn’t believe how many times that is hidden). I will usually follow on Pinterest because I’m a big Pinterest fan. I do follow Blogs by Instagram, Bloglovin and Facebook, although I usually don’t check these as often, so I keep up things mainly through email. Also some Blogs have a feedly feature which doesn’t work with the IPad unless you download an app, so I don’t mess with that because I use my IPad Mini predominately. Thank you for the chance to give input, have a great day! Oh, your daughters a great photographer.

  645. asteride says:

    Email subscription and instagram are the best ways for me!

  646. Giulia says:

    Usually I check my newsfeed on Facebook. It’s easy!

  647. Nadin says:

    Dear Anna, I’m from Germany and I love following your blog which I found through following another sewing blog 🙂 I mainly use newsletters and instagram to see what my favourite sewers are up to. My next projects are some open wide zippered pouches that suite very well as little presents. Wish you all the best and hope to see lots more of your projects, yours Nadin

  648. Nicole G says:

    I follow my fav bloggers both via email & on FB. Because FB is so peculiar with what I see in my feeds I’d rather double up & email subscribe as well so I don’t miss a thing! Because you’re so awesome I want to answer both of your questions. Right now I’m working on an “origami” purse/bag made out of The Walking Dead fabric to take with me this weekend to LouFest in St. Louis. Thx for a shot at an awesome giveaway!!!

  649. y says:

    Thanks for your inspiring projects! Email and feedly are my main sources to keep up-to-date with new posts. My next project is to organize my sewing space.

  650. Jo J says:

    I tend to use Instagram a lot. It’s like flicking through the pages of a lovely bespoke magazine! I also use Bloglovin.

  651. legato1958 says:

    I follow my favorite blogs by email, and bloglovin. I use Instagram to see cute projects of folks whom I love their style!

  652. Mary says:

    I follow blogs using feedly, newsletters get deleted! I also use IG which is great for brief updates. I’d love a copy of your book – thanks

  653. Janet Maddox says:

    I keep up to date with my quilting bloggers through Bloglovin and email. I enjoy seeing what you are creating each time I get your update.

  654. Linda Duncan says:

    I’ve used several of your patterns and love them! Can’t wait to try some things from your book.

  655. I use The Old Reader, which is very much like the Google Reader used to be. I do also follow some bloggers on instagram, but prefer to rely on a reader to make sure I am up-to-date! Thank you for the giveaway!

  656. Tünde says:

    I am a busy working mom and social media is eating up so much time so I have restricted my time spent on reading blog posts, etc. I am following my favorites on FB and pinterest, but that’s all, I cant believe I am still resisting IG and I do not use bloglovin and others like that. I feel like a dinosaur: I have bookmarked some of my very favorites and I take a look at them every 2 or 3 days. I guess it might sound very strange and old-fashioned but I feel if I allowed myself any other means, I would spend way more time than I cannot afford…

    Another story: My birthday was yesterday (September 11) and I wished to get your book to my b’day but it could not be ordered online I was so sad as it is/was (?) out-of-stock 🙁 Is it a sign that you posted this giveaway on my b’day? Haha 🙂

    Greetings from a long-time follower from Budapest, Hungary 🙂

  657. Léna says:

    Hello Anna,
    I’m from France and I love sewing ! I’ve made a dozen of your baskets (no need to say that everybody’s happy with them) and I’m thinking of making a two-zipper pouch soon… and BRAVO to your daughter for the book cover 🙂

  658. Usually through Facebook and Instagram. After reading all the comments I think that I need to explore Bloglovin. Wow, I am super impressed that your daughter took that photo. The talent apple didn’t fall far from the tree!

  659. Christiane says:

    Hello Anna,
    I’m from Germany and currently living in the Pacific Northwest. Maybe I qualify as an international contact? 😉

    I found out about your bags at one of my favorite fabric stores in Portland, OR and check in on your website for new ideas on a somewhat regular basis without any specific news feed. My next projects will be a bomber jacket and a bag impregnated with otter wax, for the rainy season. I’d love to get one of your signed books.

  660. Shanley says:

    I’m a feedly girl but considering switching my allegiances for something with a better Pinterest interface… What’s the point of reading blogs when you can’t easily pin for later??

  661. JC says:

    Greetings! I mainly use facebook and I have a sewing blog so I get your updates mainly from these two places. Pinterest is a close second as I like the idea of pinning (although many may not know people can save projects to their fb page). Your projects would be a perfect pick me up. Thank you!

  662. Shayne says:

    I use Bloglovin! Also, I just got some great Kokka Echino canvas that is just asking to be a bag!

  663. Claudia says:

    Hi Anna, wow! So many responses already – no wonder, you do a wonderful work and are a big inspiration! Thanks for this great giveaway idea. Delivery time for your book is between 2-4 weeks in Germany at the moment. I really wish I was a lucky winner….
    I follow my favourite bloggers via bloglovin’ and wordpress, and yes I do subscribe to newsletters and I use Pinterest. I am hesitating to use Facebook, instragram, Flickr and so on because I am afraid this would just be too much and I would be loosing myself in this variety. I hope this helps.
    Have a great day! Regards from Germany, Claudia

  664. Céline says:

    Hello, I’m glad some American blog thinks about “overseas” visitors 😉 I have been visiting your blog regularly for the last… 3 years I think, love it!
    How do I keep up to date? Oh, I’m the old type, I have folders in my favourites and once in a while I open a folder (5 to 8 blogs) and see what’s new. That’s a bit like coming to visit a friend, I enjoy it 🙂
    My next project? Hmmm, my next handbag I guess… The spring one is not waterproof and the rainy days are coming even in Southern France J
    Thanks for your great blog, your sharing and all that you do!

  665. Caitlin Armstrong says:

    I use feedly so I can stay up to date with all my favourite blogs. I also follow those who have engaging account on instagram so I can stay up to date on smaller more visual details.

  666. Jackie Papallo says:

    Anna, congratulations on your new book. I am in love with so many of the projects I have seen coming from here! I follow my fellow quilters and crafters on Bloglovin’, Feedburner and newsletters. One of my next projects is your divided basket. Thanks for sharing your talents with all of us.

  667. Helen says:

    Greetings from the UK! hvparkes@yahoo.co.uk I have a brand new baby girl in my arms so not too much sewing going on here! But my little boy is moving up in nursery next month and I want to make something for the lovely ladies who have been looking after him. I’m sure there will be something perfect in your book, I’ve loved all the projects you’ve shared from it so far.

  668. Shannan Mallich says:

    I adore your patterns. Would love the opportunity to win your book. Thank you!! The Super Tote is definitely on my to do list. I follow my favorites on Instagram, subscribe to newsletters, and Bloglovin’.

  669. Tina Kidd says:

    Hello from the UK! I subscribe to newsletters and follow favourite bloggers on FB & Instagram. Love your patterns!

  670. Hanie noor says:

    I keep uptodate through fb, instagram, and get notified when there’s a blog update! Hello from new zealand ?

  671. buntyw says:

    I use GFC and facebook mostly!

  672. Lauren says:

    I use blog login and Instagram to follow.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  673. Nina says:

    I’m still using the Blogger reading list – is that hopelessly out of date?! There was all that panic about Google Reader being shut down a couple of years ago, but I didn’t do anything about it and it turned out the Blogger reading list function kept working. It’s nice and simple and I keep the blogs I follow down to a manageable number. I’m on Flickr too, which I also find very simple and non-overwhelming. Your book cover is beautiful – so nice that it’s really your handwriting!

  674. Emma House says:

    I mainly use Bloglovin but have just started an Instagram feed which I love. Can’t think why I didn’t use Instagram before.

  675. Mirjam says:

    I use bloglovin mostly. I also follow a handful of blog newsletters.
    Greetings from Switzerland 🙂

  676. Kristen says:

    Instagram is the best!!! So inspirational. Thank you!!!

  677. Madelyn McIntire says:

    There are just too many to keep up with. I do check out Instagram regularly.

  678. Connie K. says:

    I subscribe to newsletters and have quite a few blogs in my favorites tab.

  679. Daryl says:

    I follow some blogs via GFC, some with Bloglovin’, some by email. I don’t do instagram or twitter and I only do Facebook a little. I joined Facebook last year to be part of a few bag making groups. But It all gets too overwhelming to keep up with so much AND to have time to sew and create. So I usually only glance at a few blogs, etc. and comment on a few because there just isn’t time to do it all.

  680. Mary H. says:

    i subscribe to blogs or just try to remember to check them occasionally!

  681. jami says:

    hi! I use Instagram daily and bloglovin’ a couple times a week!

  682. Jess says:

    I have a Stitchin’ folder in my Inoreader account, which I ported when Google shut down Reader. I also subscribe to a few newsletters. Instagram is great too, and I love Facebook.

  683. Jeanne says:

    I use both Bloglovin’ as well as Instagram to keep up with all of my favorite blogs!
    Thanks for the lovely giveaway!!

  684. Kim says:

    I follow individual blogs through my bookmarks. It works for me. My next sewing project is to sew up the baby gifts I’ve got cut out. Need to take them to church tomorrow to give my friend who just had her 4th little girl!my

  685. Paula says:

    I subscribe to my favorite blogs and have the emails automatically to a folder so I know what’s new and can view at my leisure!

  686. Tiina says:

    Feedly, pinterest and instagram are the ones I use.

  687. Alison says:

    I’m planning to sew a Tessuti Alice dress with a friend as its spring here in Australia

  688. snausages22 says:

    Hi there Anna,
    I just love your blog…it was one of the first I subscribed to when I discovered blogs back in 2010! I have been home, off work since then due to a disability.
    Oooo…a copy of your book!!! How cool! I own several of your e-patterns too! You are so clever!
    I get most of my blogginess straight in my inbox, but do also use Bloglovin’ and Pinterest to keep informed.
    Quilty Huggs,

  689. sage says:

    Yay! I have been seeing the patterns in this book popping up via blogs and pinterest. Many of those patterns are calling my name. 🙂 I keep up with my favorite blogs using bloglovin’!!!

  690. Vera says:

    I use bloglovin and IG but I don’t feel up to date since everyone seem to be prolific blogger and I’m always behind with my feed.

  691. Diane says:

    I start every morning with feedly, instagram, and coffee. I tried bloglovin after the demise of Google reader but hated it. Feedly works much better for me.

  692. Marta M. says:

    I follow on bloglovin’. I love that the cover photograph of your book was taken by your daughter!

  693. Jill says:

    I follow my favorite blogs through instagram and the sidebar on my outdated blog. I check every few days these days. Love the giveaway!

  694. Marissa says:

    I use Feedly. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  695. Peggy says:

    Blog login is a great resource but my favorites, like yours, come directly to my email.

  696. Marianne says:

    I use feedly and watch bloggers on Instagram; that’s how I found out about this!

  697. zippyquilts says:

    Your book looks lovely! I subscribe to blogs by email. Have the blog readers installed but seldom use them

  698. Anna says:

    Hello Anna
    It would be amazing to win a copy of your lovely book! I’m dying to try some of the patterns, especially the big squidgy floor pouf!
    I use Bloglovin and Instagram, and I subscribe to newsletters. I also spend hours (way too many!) on Pinterest – I love it.
    My next project is to have a go at block printing some linen and making a purse with the fabric. I’m planning to use your leather bottom pouches pattern and I have bought an old suede skirt from eBay to cut up and use.
    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win a copy of the book, and thanks for being such an inspiration!
    Best wishes from Manchester in the UK.

  699. Kerry says:

    I typically follow blogs on Bloglovin’ or through Google Blogger’s dashboard. Some I follow on Instagram, but that’s typically in addition to Bloglovin’ or Blogger. My next sewing project will (hopefully) be sewing up a tee. 🙂

  700. Love your name and your work!

  701. Courtney says:

    I want to sew up all of the patterns in your book! I subscribe to blogs via Bloglovin’, and follow many bloggers on Instagram.

  702. Ullis says:

    I follow blogs with Bloglovin

  703. Tanya says:

    I follow mostly with Instagram & Feedly. Thanks for the giveaway!

  704. monica says:

    i follow the most with instagram, then there are some duplicates in my feedly feed, then ever fewer are duplicated as newsletters.

  705. Dulce Blanco says:

    I don’t really have a method to follow bloggers, just visit the blogs every week or so to see what’s new. For my next project I want to make a quilt for my son from an etsy pattern I bought years ago.

  706. Pinterest, bloglovin and email on my tablet for lunchtime reading. I would love to win your book in the international giveaway as I always find your patterns to be so inspirational.

  707. Audrey says:

    I follow blog post via Bloglovin and email. Thanks for offering a giveaway.

  708. Jasmine says:

    I follow blogs (only blogs) with bloglovin. I love that your daughter took the cover photo!

  709. I get my info through bloglovin and a few newsletter subscriptions. I’m working on a self drafted wristlet/clutch in a faux leather. I’m hoping it will look as good as I imagine.

  710. dawninca says:

    Your book looks lovely and I think it wouild be a great addition to my quilty/sewing library. 🙂 I follow my favorite blogs mostly on Bloglovin’……yours included. Some I follow just with newsletters.
    Congrats to your daughter for a great photograph! Who knows…..maybe she’ll love photography and grow up to be famous. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if she could do something she loves? I think that all mothers wish that for their children.

  711. Your daughter has impressive photography skills. I think it’s fantastic that her photo is featured on your cover, as well as your handwriting. I consider books personal…much prefer them over ebooks…and I now feel yours is extra-special! Bloglovin’ is my favourite way to read blogs.

  712. Judy Cinerari says:

    I always subscribe to blogs I am interested in. Thanks for your lovely book.

  713. Susan McGregor says:

    I would so love to win your book. I’ve seen other bloggers post pictures of projects they’ve made from your book, as well as those you have posted. I follow my favourite blogs (including yours) by bookmarking them and checking in every couple of days when I have some free time on the computer. By the way, I’m from Canada.

  714. Leanne says:

    I follow on blogs.

  715. Leslie Schmidt says:

    I use email a lot, but I also subscribe to Bloglovin’ for a quick overview of not only blogs I follow, but also others that I may not know about yet.

  716. Sandra Davidson says:

    Love your book but I am looking forward to making some bags and smaller projects this fall. Newsletters for mt favs and feedly for others

  717. Kristi says:

    i keep up to date with bloglovin. love it!! your 241 tote has been on my Must Make list for a while now — since it’s for me, it keeps getting put on the back burner while i work on other projects for other people. i’m sure you know the feeling! your book looks like it has lots of great things to whip up!

  718. I follow your blog with feedly and I also follow your IG account. I’m not a fan of Facebook, even though I keep a profile there for those who are. I know everyone is mad for IG but my heart still belongs to blogs. I love being able to see more pictures and descriptions. And you can’t put a good tutorial on IG! I’ve loved following along as you show us your book – I’d be super happy if I won!

  719. Georgine says:

    I do “all of the above”. My next project is the Blavery Ellis legging for my daughter. Thank you so much for the chance to win!!

  720. Robin says:

    My next must -make is a new handbag and I know it will be one of yours. Thanks for the chance!

  721. I love to email subscribe to the blogs I really want to follow, always my first choice, and on IG I turn on the notifications for when certain people post so I am less likely to miss them… This book keeps selling out like crazy so I really hope I win (Canada if that matters LOL)

  722. Arita says:

    Thanks for a great giveaway. I’m mostly following on IG but do check Blogvin every couple of days.

  723. Amie says:

    I use feedley to follow blogs. I would LOVE a copy of your book! Amazon is sold out right now.

  724. Sandra :) says:

    Thank you for a fantastic giveaway – my fingers are crossed! I use Inoreader to follow my favourite blogs. I also follow some on Pinterest, and subscribe to several newsletters – that way there’s always something fun to read when I sit down to play on the computer 😀

    Sandra (in Canada) 🙂

  725. Lena G. says:

    I read blogs while nursing my youngest to sleep. I just have a mental list I check daily/when I know they’ve posted. I also use instagram to keep up. Love that your daughter took the cover photo – how fun!

  726. Amanda says:

    I follow blogs with Bloglovin, but I also love using Instagram! 🙂

  727. Heather says:

    I use feedly and Instagram to keep up with my favorites. My sewing list is long at the moment, I have several garments I want to sew for myself this fall.

  728. Bunny Wilson says:

    I use The Old Reader because it’s so much like Google Reader of past. That, plus facebook keeps me pretty current.

  729. Debby says:

    For sites I really love, I go straight to their website on my own. But then I will also sign up for emails or blog lovin so that it comes right to my email as well. I will sometimes follow on facebook, instagram, pinterest because I know it can help the blogger, but I don’t do it to keep up with what they are posting. I find social media a bit too much!

  730. Jaime Stephens says:

    I like to visit the blogs itself. I need to subscribe but haven’t sat down to figure all that out. I also use Pinterest to find other blogs I might not know about. It’s always fun to see what others make.

  731. Tammy says:

    I get newsletters and visit blogs when I have time.

  732. Sheri says:

    Instagram keeps me up-to-date with my favorite blogs. My next sewing project will be a lace dress for my son’s Rehearsal dinner the night before his wedding. Thanks for writing such an amazing book. And thanks for the great giveaway.

  733. Rebecca H says:

    I’m currently drawing up a wall hanging that I want to try.

  734. Lesley says:

    I Follow with Facebook, Bloglovin and emailed newsletters

  735. Carrie says:

    Instagram, Facebook, and e-mailed postings keep me up to date 🙂 I have a block of the month to start & a noodle head bag in the works!

  736. Annette says:

    I just have certain blogs I check back in with on a regular basis…some not so regular..but I don’t use any tools to see if blogs have been updated. Maybe I’m just not techy enough.

  737. Belinda smith says:

    I subscribe to a few, but mainly Facebook and a lot of time in the evenings searching through my bookmarks. I am currently making my 3rd go anywhere bag, am trying to put in a zippered pocket but am stuck!! So of course reading blogs instead!

  738. Margo says:

    I love to follow by Pinterest….but then there is emails…and of course browsing! Facebook…lol…. let’s just say I should be spending more time in my sewing space!

  739. ybat says:

    I like to follow blogs through Bloglovin and the newsletters because a lot of times when business’s have sales or special offers they will promote through their newsletter.

  740. Annabell says:

    I follow on bloglovin and on Pinterest, I love the Inspiration!

  741. Marjory W says:

    All of the above, although I like newsletters and blogs emailed directly to my inbox the best.

  742. Liana says:

    I kinda do a little of all you mentioned! Also, my next sewing project is a pattern testing item for Sara at Sew Sweetness!!

  743. Claire Ross says:

    I use blog lovin but I also have several blogs that I just browse through the search engine. I also follow some via FB , IG and twitter. A bit of everything really! Thanks for the giveaway. It looks like a great book x
    Iain.ross30 at gmail dot com

  744. Bekki says:

    Sometimes i follow by email but mostly I do it the old fashioned way and search for them in my browser!

  745. kislanykim says:

    Bloglovin’ for me. Thank you for this generous giveaway Anna and especially for thinking of your international audience! That’s super cool.

  746. Cweet Gal says:

    I love bloglovin 🙂 It makes reading feed so easy. Thank you for the giveaway

  747. Cweet Gal says:

    I follow in bloglovin . My previous comment did not appear

  748. owllaughing says:

    Right now my two favourite ways to follow bloggers are Feedly and Instagram. Never subscribe by email. my email box is too cluttered already 🙂

  749. Marg says:

    I follow feedly and get newsletters and look at instagram and spend too much time on the net when I should be finishing other things, and thanks for thinking of us overseas 🙂

  750. Christi P says:

    I keep up with bloggers by subscribing via email and I also follow by bloglovin. Love your blog 🙂

  751. Patricia says:

    After a heap of mending, my next project is a new supertote for me!

  752. I’m a Feedly follower!
    All the way from Australia

  753. Edith says:

    hi , I’m Edith from Germany. I don’t follow but I do have the best in the favorites.

  754. beth lehman says:

    i love that your daughter took the cover photo!! and i’ve followed forever… first with google reader and now with feedly! i always look forward to your posts… and sometimes go straight to them if i see you’ve posted on instagram!

  755. Martina says:

    Hi Anna,
    I’m Martina from Cologne/Germany and I’d love to win a copy of your book, that I know, because one of my friends has ordered it yet via Amazon 😉 I stay tuned with my favorite blogs by bloglovin and the ones I never ever want to miss a post are listed on my blog in the blog fav list (where you’re too, by the way 😉
    Take care, Martina

  756. marisa says:

    I use Bloglovin, although the format has become a bit irritating so often I just type in the URLs of my favourite blogs and access them directly. My next sewing project is a Citronille pattern – my first!

  757. najm says:

    Ohh…i wish i could win….i just love your fabric choices..
    It makes a huge difference in standard to the finished
    I always hop on different blogs….almost on a daily basis?

  758. Joanna says:

    Wow, it’s opened to international entries!!! Well I’m French and that’s a jolly piece of news! : ) To answer your question, I jsut browse my favourite blogs once a week, I don’t want to use any feed. Next on my list is sewing a pair of boxer shorts for my brother, who had his birthday…last June…but who’s used to me coming up with a handmade gift randomly during the year : )
    Thanks for the chance and keep up the good work and fun!

  759. Emilie Girard-Ruel says:

    I have a list of favourites and love to sit on Sunday morning to read through them. I’m making April Rhodes’ Popover Poncho today in a beautiful plaid I bought in Montreal. So excited to sew a cozy fall project!

  760. Lisa Garrett says:

    I use blog lovin but I also subscribe to MANY newsletters, including yours.

  761. Giuditta says:

    I have a number of blogs I follow on both Feedblitz and Blog Lovin’, but my favorites, like Noodlehead of course, I get directly in my email . In fact, I really hate when blogs don’t have that option!

  762. Kristina says:

    I use feedly! Like others, I used to use Google Reader, which was so awesome with the save and search functions, but feedly gets the job done too. Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  763. Erika says:

    I use bloglovin’ to track everything!xx

  764. Rachel says:

    I use Bloglovin and follow on Instagram! I have a few projects on my table (just waiting for my fabric to arrive!) like April Rhodes Popover Poncho, and the Weekend Duffle by Betz White on Craftsy. Waiting for fabric to arrive is the hardest part! Your fabric choices are my biggest draw to your blog, so beautiful and professional!

  765. Teresa Gaio says:

    Congratulations on your beautiful book!
    I follow my favourite blogs, mainly by feedly, and you’re certainly one of them.

  766. Rhonda says:

    I only recently discovered bloglovin’ and I am lovin’ it!

  767. maria kalfioti says:

    Bloglovin and Instagram!

  768. Ruby says:

    I have always love your style and follow on Bloglovin, but often by Pinterest or other links brings me to your site. Your book is on my wish list at Amazon.

  769. Marieluise says:

    I just bookmark the blogs I like and go throught the list when I want to get new ideas and inspiration. Greetings from Germany, Marie

  770. Angela H says:

    I follow on Feedly and Instagram with Instagram being my favorite. I used google reader before and really liked it I tried bloglovin but if the owner of the blog doesn’t connect themselves to it you can’t access their blog through bloglovin so I started using Feedly after being unable to follow several bloggers. I personally am a no to Facebook

  771. Leslie says:

    Hi Anna! IG is my favourite way to keep up with my favourite bloggers. And right now I’m working on sewing my first divided basket. Yay!

  772. Beth B says:

    I follow blogs through Bloglovin’ – I usually check every day, though I slack sometimes on the weekends.

  773. Melanie says:

    I follow blogs through Feedly, though I do have bloglovin I never use it. I subscribe to newsletters sometimes if there are offers of coupons or free patterns, and I like FB pages also. I just started using instagram and twitter though I’m not in the habit of checking daily yet.

  774. Hi Anna! Thank you for this opportunity! 😀 So I usually follow my favourite bloggers on the social media (instagram mostly, also facebook), and I have some of them linked on my blog (www.aikamaku.com) so I can cach them up every time I look my page 🙂
    And the next thing I want to sew for me (if I have some time) will be a cargo duffle bag, a little bit larger than the original pattern, in order to bring my sewing machine with me when I travel! 😀 Thank you again! And regards from Barcelona!

  775. I use Feedly to follow blogs, but also Instagram for more up to date/by the minute updates. Sometimes there’s just too much inspiration (I had a lot less wips/ufos before I started all this), but it’s still a lot of fun to have a peek into people’s creative lives.

    As for projects, I’m working on a quilt-along (Midnight Mystery with Meadow Mist Designs), but my next project is quilting a quilt top I think I started piecing two years ago. (I really need to work on finishing things.)

  776. Sherree says:

    I use the Pulse ap on my phone!

  777. Sarah says:

    I sign up to follow blogs with bloglovin as an encouragement to the bloggers, but don’t really use it much. For blogs I really like and follow, I just type in their addresses when I want to read their blog, and some I get over e-mail.

  778. Jenny Sue says:

    Bookmarks! I also like to look at Instagram and occasionally will subscribe to newsletters.

  779. Adriene says:

    I ove the homemade touches on the cover! I am a daily Bloglovin’ user!!

  780. tinevp says:

    I’m an avid Bloglovin’ reader and also like to be kept up to date via Instagram 🙂

  781. Christine Newman-Aumiller says:

    I’ve tried using feeds but they never seem to work right. I just bookmark those I like and they pop up as favorites.

  782. Tiffany says:

    I keep track of my favorites in Bloglovin’, but rely on Instagram for daily updates. Thanks for the chance! (And I love the cover photo/font trivia!)

  783. Krista says:

    I use Bloglovin’, but sometimes its notifications are slower than the blogs; I love going on Instagram (because photos with captions are my favorite!!)

  784. Amanda Ashton says:

    I keep up with blogs on Bloglovin’ and check Instagram a couple of times a day. Any more than that and I’d never get anything done! Thanks for your generosity.

  785. Tracy McCain says:

    I follow most blogs using Feedly, but some on bloglovin just because they look better on that system. I’m currently in the making of my own pants/trouser block so I can possibly make my own designs someday, but really to help me make adjustments on sewing patterns. My biggest love of sewing is pants, as that’s what got me sewing as a child. I’ve never been able to find rtw pants that fit me well. So, hopefully my block/sloper will do me well!!

  786. Cris says:

    Feedly and a few newsletters. I also LOVE instagram.

  787. deepa says:

    I would love to get one of them!!

  788. Joy says:

    Hi there,

    I just check on my favourite bloggers when I think of them! Thanks for the chance!

  789. EmilyW says:

    I mostly use Instagram. Thanks for the chance to win this book – I just love it!

  790. Kay says:

    I use Bloglovin and also Facebook. I live in England and love to read blogs from all around the world to get a glimpse of what is current, for instance the U.S.A. gets fabric ranges much earlier than we do so I know what to look out for eventually. My favourite British blog is Flying Blind on a Rocket Cycle. Thanks for a fun giveaway. x

  791. Francina says:

    Hi! I’ve discovered Noodlehead recently and LOVE your work!!!! It’s inspiring to see your designs and pics. They are wonderful.

    Depending on the blog, I follow it by newsletter (like yours) or by Blogger. My next projects are a wallet for myself and gifts for friends who are pregnant. I enjoy sewing gifts, but now I need a cute wallet 🙂

    Congrats for your blog and thanks for this chance, I would really love to recieve one of your books!!!!

  792. Hannah says:

    I follow on bloglovin’ and instagram, I like to check both on my phone 🙂 And I’ve got a pair of hudson pants being cut right now, really hoping I’ll get some time soon to sew them up!

  793. Silvana C says:

    I like to keep up with my favorite blogs by following them on instagram and facebook.

  794. katevpa says:

    I follow on bloglovin’ and on my blogroll on my (rarely updated) blog.

  795. Martina says:

    I mainly use bloglovin or use the blogroll on my own underused (shame on me) blog.

  796. Tammy says:

    I follow by email- bloglovin’- and also Flickr & Facebook. I don’t want to miss anything! An open wide pouch is almost always included in a swap package- such a perfect, simple pattern that can be made as special & unique as you’d like! I also have most of your patterns, and wasn’t going to get the book, but the more I see pictures of your amazing projects inside, I feel my self- control going away! Keep the great paqtterns coming!

  797. Lauren M says:

    I use Google now to let me know of blog updates

  798. Rachel says:

    I use Feedly, mostly. I also follow people on Instagram and sometimes I get newsletters emailed, but Feedly is the best place, I love it.

  799. Mara says:

    I just check up on the blogs I like to read whenever I think of it – it makes for lovely surprises when I haven’t had a look at a blog in some time! Also, I’m German, so I’d be delighted to win the international book. Congrats on your work!

  800. Steph says:

    Would LOVE to win a copy of your new book…I tend to follow blogs and learn about new ones from links posted in blogs Im currently reading..It has led me to some great places!

  801. Sarah J. says:

    This book looks amazing! I use bloglovin mostly- sometimes a newsletter. Thank you!

  802. I use bloglovin to keep up but I also go directly to your site on a regular basis. This is a great give away.

  803. Adrienne says:

    I follow most blogs on Bloglovin but I also follow on Instaragm as well.

  804. Jody says:

    Hey, I use Bloglivin and Instagram. There are so many talented people it is hard to keep up.

  805. Kathleen McCormick says:

    I use Bloglovin. Sometimes I subscribe directly….can’t decided which I like better.

  806. Helen White says:

    Your new book looks just like what this 73 year young granny and a 55 year survivor of open heart surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. It was referred to as the “Pioneer Days” of open heart surgery. Truly I am blessed in so many ways relative to this surgery. I died on the table and Dr’s could not restart my heart. Here I am trying to do all the good I can do, because I will only be here once on this earth. I am a retired high school educator from Western S. D. .
    What a joy is would to receive your lovely book Several times a week I follow the Bloglovin, Instagram and Facebook Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win your book.

  808. Laura Luengo says:

    Hi there, cheers from Chile. I use Instagram for sure, i love it. Get newsletters from my favorites blogs and spend a lots of time on Pinterest. I’m new to Bloglovin, but so far i’m in love with it.

  809. Tamie says:

    Before there was Bloglovin, I created a blog that I don’t post to but use to follow blogs. It has been several years now and that is still how I do it. I follow some on IG too. I’d love to have a copy of your book.

  810. Deb Scheibel says:

  814. Elizabeth says:

  820. I love following blogs on Instagram. It’s such a delicious and visual way to keep up. I also follow blogs on FB and via bloglovin.

  821. Julie says:

    Unfortunately I use more than one method to keep up with the blogs I like to read- bloglovin’, Feedly and plain old email notifications. Not very efficient, but there it is! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  822. Luise says:

  825. I’m from England! I like to put favourite blogs on my own blog sidebar and try and keep up to date from there.

  826. Kirsty Wann says:

    Hello from Australia – I have been following for a number of years. I now follow my favourite blogs via bloglovin, instragram and Facebook. Very thankful that international readers have the chance to win. That usually doesn’t happen. Due to the failing Australian dollar purchasing from US is too costly at the moment.
