Wooohoooooooo!!! Hello hello! Omg, the day is finally here! I am officially kicking off the Patchwork Gifts Book Tour today! Can you tell I am excited? Well, I am super excited and I hope you are too!
My publisher, Tuva publishing, sent the book out to our super duper talented book tour makers a few weeks ago and they've been working away on the projects of their choosing. I don't know about you, but I can't wait for them to share! I love how they all have individual styles and I'm so looking forward to seeing how they have interpreted the projects in their own style and colors.
I love how colors and prints can make a project look so different and unique, and I am sure they'll inspire you to use your own creative voice when making projects from the book!
Meet the makers!
I'm sure you're familiar with a lot of the makers on the book tour and if you're not, click on their name to take a peek at their Instagram accounts! A lot of them also have wonderful websites and blogs for you to take a look at, just check out the links in their bio!
To make this book tour more fun my sis Emelie and I thought we'd play Patchwork Bingo! What is it you ask? Well, each day of the book tour we'll call two numbers that have been assigned tasks for you to complete...tasks will be like follow the maker of the day, show us a project from the book, show us your sewing space etc. As you complete the task corresponding to the number on your bingo card, cross it off. And once you have 5 crossed out numbers in a line (horizontal, diagonal or vertical) post your completed BINGO card on instagram and call out #patchworkBINGO and tag me @eliseandemelie on the photo and in the comments so we don't miss it!
Don't have your bingo cards yet? Get them HERE.
Print out your BINGO cards, there's one for each of the 6 weeks of the book tour. Have the one for Week 1 ready on Monday February 17th when it's our first maker's turn to share their project! We'll call the first number 10 am-ish...so make sure to turn on your notification on instagram so you don't miss the number calls! Eeeeeek, this is going to be so much FUN!!!!
If you don't know how to turn on notifications on Instagram, there's a quick video tutorial on the Patchwork Bingo highlight on my Instagram page!
Ok, patchwork bingo sounds fun, but oooooh..what's in it for you? Faaaaaaaabulous giveaways from our amaaaaaazing sponsors that's what! Wanna know who the sponsors are? Ok, ok....here they are!
The book is officially going to be released March 1, 2020 here in the US, but I know it's already out in Europe because so many of you have shared the book on social and have already started on projects. I mean, is this for real? I'm so honored and grateful for all your support and cannot wait to share your makes too! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!
Ok, I'm gonna go and shake off some of this extra energy I've got bubbling in me with all this excitement! What's your favorite tune? I'm kinda hooked on Dance Monkey on repeat right now....
