Giveaway - Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing - Kathy Cano-Murillo

The blog tour for Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing by Kathy Cano-Murillo stops here for a GIVEAWAY!

From the publisher Grand Central:


"Sometimes to find your life's true path, you have to stray outside the lines . . .

Scarlet Santana is never happier than when creating fabulous fashions for women of all shapes and sizes. Now, after years of hard work, she finally has the chance to live her dream and study under the hottest designer in New York. To raise money for her move, Scarlet opens an after-hours sewing school in a local record shop, teaching a type-A working mom whose rigid parenting style is causing her family to unravel and an enigmatic seamstress with a mysterious past. But as stitches give way to secrets and classmates become friends, the women realize an important truth: There is no single pattern for a good life. Happiness is always a custom fit. A reading group guide is available for book clubs.

"With a life motto of “Crafts! Drama! Glitter!” Crafty Chica Kathy Cano-Murillo is a creative force of nature. A former syndicated columnist for The Arizona Republic, she is the founder of the award-winning Web site, CraftyChica.com and the author of seven nonfiction craft books and a Web series on LifetimeTV.com. Kathy has a Crafty Chica line of art supplies that are sold nationwide. She also has been featured in numerous media outlets such as The New York Times Magazine, NPR’s Weekend Edition, USA Today, Bust, and Latina magazine. She has shared her crafty ideas on local television, as well as on Sí TV, HGTV, and DIY network. She has been writing stories longer than she has been crafting. Inspired by Judy Blume and Erma Bombeck, she caught the literary bug in grade school, where she used to draw a picture and then write a colorful story to go with it. It’s a creativity exercise she still practices to this day! Kathy lives in Phoenix, Arizona, with her husband, two kids, and five Chihuahuas."

You can find Kathy on Twitter, on Facebook and on her website Crafty Chica. She has her own You Tube channel  and you can check out her craft photos on Flickr.

Prize pack consists of BOTH of Kathy's Books - Miss Scarlet's School of Patternless Sewing AND Waking Up in the Land of Glitter! One lucky reader will win both books. Open to US and Canada, no po boxes please. One winner per household. Simply comment to be entered. Ends Sat. April 2nd at 6pm EST. Good luck!
