A fabulous exciting giveaway...

Don't you love this spring weather?  The sun, daffodils and longer days make me feel like I can get on a do things.  I have been contacted about a most exciting giveaway!  Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom is a designer of fabrics and other things and you can find details of her fabric designs at Freespirit.  Jennifer has launched a new pattern book called Girl's World. 
This lovely book will be available in the UK through Amazon (and probably elsewhere) from the 1st May 2011.  It has 21 projects in it which include the patterns and although it says "little girls" they are suitable for girls up to pre-teeens. The dresses are in gorgeous fabrics and designs that both girls and mums love!  
The giveaway is for a signed copy of the book, an online one-hour video tutorial created with Jennifer by Rick-Rack thread therapy for sewers, also, you'll get a discount code so you can buy some beautiful fabric with 25% off from Fabric.com   How fantastic is this giveaway??   If you don't win and you are interested you can register for the tutorial and more up to May 12, 2011 at www.virtueradionetwork.com/rickrack.htm.
OK here is the prize:

•1 autographed copy of the book, Girl's World: Twenty-One Sewing Projects to Make for Little Girls;
•1 downloadable Mary's Fancy Sash Dress how to sew video demonstration;
•1 downloadable project instruction sheet w/step-by-step color photos (PDF);
•Supply list;
•Access to the student-only Fabric.com Jennifer Paganelli/Girl's World Online Class Store where class supplies (and more) will be available for purchase at 25% off Fabric.com's already low prices; and
•1 hour live chat with Jennifer Paganelli (Dolin O'Shea will join in to answer any sewing questions concerning this project )
 
Here are the rules:
 
(Because this is such a great prize I am giving two chances to win to each entrant).
 
1 entry for leaving a comment on this post (with some way of contacting you)
1 entry if you spread of the news of this giveaway by facebook, tweeting, blogging etc.
 
If you want two entries you'll need to leave two comments, one with the details of how you spread the news!
 
The giveaway will run for 2 1/2 weeks and I will draw the winner on Tues 26th April.  Good luck.
