Our Flamie Award Winner

I just had to make a special announcement ’cause we’re so proud here at Leisure Arts…the 2010 Flamie Award goes to—

(Imagine a drum roll!)

Drew Emborsky, our very own Crochet Dude! Last night, he received the Best Pattern Book Award for his publication—Crochet It. Love It. Wear It!

And, it just so happens, that I have a couple of signed copies of Crochet It. Love It. Wear It! that I might be willing to part with. Just leave a comment here on my blog congratulating Drew between now and Easter at midnight, and you might be a winner.

In the meantime, if you can’t wait to win, order your very own copy of Crochet It. Love It. Wear It! at LeisureArts.com!

Congrats Drew! We’re thrilled for you!

  28. Congratulations.!!
    If in Indonesia there is a great man like you, maybe knitting/crochet would be more favored by men..
    There are many talented men, but less become icons, they do not write books like you..
