Sewing with Oilcloth: A Giveaway!

While researching my story on oilcloth for issue #14 of UPPERCASE, I had help from Anna Marino of Oilcloth by the Yard, Cardie Molina of Oilcloth International, and Kelly McCants of Modern June.  Each of them is very passionate about coated cloth.

Kelly has gone so far as to write a book Sewing with Oilcloth. She graciously sent me a copy to use in my research and I'd like to share it with you. It's full of wonderful projects and tips of the trade. Her website also has a super-useful guide to the differences between and best uses of oilcloth, laminate, and chalk cloth, which was reproduced in the UPPERCASE article.

Leave a comment below for an opportunity to win this book. Tell me something, anything, about oilcloth—an oilcloth memory from childhood, a project you created with oilcloth or laminate, or simply what about it appeals to you. I'll keep comments open until August 7, and announce the winner on August 8.

I look forward to hearing from you!
