(Note: The magazine giveaway is now closed, but the apron giveaway will remain open until August 28, 2016. See below for details.)
I'm very excited to be part of this issue, and even more excited to have a copy to give away. And just to spice things up, I'm holding a double giveaway. Read on for the details....
1. Vintage Crochet 2016 Giveaway (giveaway now closed)
You could win your very own copy of Vintage Crochet 2016, and a skein of lovely Malabrigo Silkpaca in Polar Morn (a pale silvery-grey with faint bluish undertones):
~ If you're a "No-Reply Blogger", or if your online profile does not include an email address, make sure there's a way for me to reach you.
~ If you can't leave a comment because you don't have an online profile, send me an e-mail (see my profile for the address) with "Vintage Crochet Giveaway" in the subject line.
Giveaway closes on: Sunday, August 14. The winner will be chosen by random number generator.
Magazine winner to be announced on: Monday, August 15.

2. Apron Give-Back-Away
Yes, I'm giving away the original Modern Afternoon Apron - the very same apron that appears in the magazine:

But this Apron comes with some strings attached (really obvious apron pun). I'm happy to give this apron away, but I'd like you to give something back.
How to enter the Apron Give-Back-Away: Make a donation to Bike MS - ANY amount, big or small - on my Bike MS Washington fundraising page. (To donate, click here or on the blue "Bike MS" button near the top of the blog.)
Please note: this money isn't for me. All donations go straight towards services and research to help people with Multiple Sclerosis. I do have a fundraising goal to meet, and I'm excited about being part of this amazing bike ride. But even if something happens to keep me from riding, your donation will still be doing good work for people with MS.
How the winner will be chosen: You can make a donation to Bike MS at any time, but I'll choose a winner by random drawing from those who make donations from today, August 2, through Sunday, August 28.
Apron winner to be announced on: Monday, August 29.
You are welcome to enter both Giveaways! Just remember: comment for the magazine giveaway, donation for the apron giveaway. (Even a dollar will help the fight against MS, and every dollar counts. Yes, I'm shameless about asking for help in a good cause.)
Both giveaways are international. Good luck, and, as always, thank you for reading this.
