Bead it Like You Mean It! giveaway!

 
You may remember this post, on the influence Lyric Kinard's new DVD, Bead it Like You Mean It, had on me. This is an excellent DVD. Lyric was voted Quilt Teacher of the Year 2011, and I can see why. She is an excellent teacher. Charming, clear, well spoken, straight to the point, and certainly knows her stuff. I've been beading for years...thought I knew it all (ha!). I learned sooo much from Lyric! Even something as seemingly basic as a way to tie a knot on the back, or how to stitch on single beads so they really do stay put or get this, she picks up the beads with the end of the needle, rather than pick it up with her fingers and put it on the needle! genius. Honestly, I was amazed at how clueless I was, and how much I learned from watching Lyric's DVD. I really recommend it. 
So, you can either dash over and purchase one here, or wait and leave a comment on this post and see if you win a copy. (Or, you could do both, and if you win, give one away as a gift. This would make a fine stocking stuffer.)

So, leave me a comment, on this post, by this Thursday, October 13 6am PST, and I'll chose a name by random, and send you Lyric Kinard's new DVD, Bead it Like You Mean It. Be sure and check back here on October 13, so see if you won, and then send me your mailing address.

  58. Just beautiful colours. I live in a remote part of Papua New Guinea with no roads and no shops but when I am in town I buy secondhand clothes with beads on to add to my growing hoard. The picture on your blog inspired me with what I could do with mine (well, some of them anyway). Also, listened to your interview with Lesley Riley and enjoyed it very much. Gaynor

  76. So far this fall I have accumulated many of your recommended supplies including the Pogo. I've become a Janeite apparently. Beyond the supplies the info from your Art Journaling DVD has given me some pleasing and confidence building results. My dilemma is do I paint or do I stitch? Of course the answer is ALL of it (:
    I too have found Lyric to be a clear teacher and am sure her DVD would be a delightful addition to my studio so I wouldn't mind winning it.
    Thanks,
