    At first I worried I wouldn’t be able to come up with something…but only because I would pretty much love any of them…lol. I’ve been especially keen on finding my own copy of any of the Japanese dressmaking books. I have yet to see something I haven’t liked made from those books 🙂

    Kelly, I had to look up that one!!

    I am having trouble deciding… I love Alicia Paulson’s site, and want to get her new book “Embroidery Companion”, and I want to get into sewing dolls again… my husband was suggesting for me to find a knitting book earlier today, since I usually make it up as I go along…

    love this site!

    sooo many good choices to pick from hmmm……however my current favorite is actually a magazine, although, it weighs as much as a book :). It is called “Stuffed: a gathering of softies” by Stampington and company.

    I’d like to buy one of Denyse Schmidt’s books if I won! I never can bring myself to buy craft books as it would mean less money to spend on craft supplies!

    Martha’s Encyclopedia of Crafts is very informative and full of great ideas. I really want to get her Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts.

    I’ve definitely had my eye on Fa La La La Felt since seeing your review the other day – I think I’d choose that one!

    I love Sandcastles Made Simple by Lucinda Wierenga. I know this is not a typical craft book but I only hit up the beach a few times this summer and this book certainly came with me. Really fun to read and try to reproduce! 🙂

    Definitely Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Crafts, it’s good for anything, all year round!

    One book that I want but it isn’t out yet is Big Book of Knitted Monsters by Rebecca Danger and also The Big Ass Book of Crafts.

    I would love a copy of Craft Hope by Jade Sims ….and since I am picking up sewing I would also love Vintage Notions by Amy Barickman. I LOVE having your feed on my homepage, keep up the good work!

    My favourite right now is Sock Innovation by Cookie A.

    How boring is this, but I’ve been jonesing for the Martha Stewart Encyclopedia of Crafts forEVER. I know, I should just go buy the thing but then they came out the the Fabric one and now I’m torn.

    My past favorite is Amy Butler’s though.

    I’d love to have Anna Maria Horner’s ‘Seams to me’. Its been on my wishlist for awhile now!

    The Big Ass Book of Crafts. Fun stuff!

    I really love art & crafts
    books from the 70’s,
    esp. Native Flash, it’s all about tricked out jeans, which = Awesomeness! 🙂

    Either the knitting 24 7 or the martha crafts one!!

    I love doing crafts! I would really appreciate a Plushie Making book. I plan to make a whole lot of them for the children’s hospital here in my city! 🙂
