Giveaway: Craft Buds' Craft Book Month Blog Hop and FreeSpirit Friday

Hi everyone!  Coming up on Sept 17, Inspire Me Grey will be participating in a month-long craft book blog hop hosted by the lovely folks at Craft Buds.  Today is the end of the first week of the hop, and it's also FreeSpirit Friday, which means you can enter to win loads of great solid fabric from FreeSpirit.  Visit the Week in Review at Craft Buds for a review and giveaway.

Back-to-school season means its time to hit the books. Craft books, that is! We love craft books for their inspiration, stunning photography and crisp, glossy pages. Hard covers or soft, we just love craft books, and we know you do, too!

All month long in September, our friends at Craft Buds will celebrate sewing, quilting and all kinds of craft books by shining the spotlight on new releases, interviewing authors and editors who make the magic happen and giving you a chance to win.
