Giveaway Time!

I love talking about English paper piecing, and since the book came out, I've had a lot of fun talking to so many quilters and hearing about their EPP projects, goals, or fears.  (Seems lots and lots of people have WIPs..)
Talk is great, but what I really need is time to sit and sew, so I am arranging an EPP quilt retreat in Greece next summer.  I would LOVE it if a bunch of you would join me there.
It's a week-long handwork-only get together at the beautiful Anezina Village Hotel on the island of Paros.  You can read more about it here, or request a registration packet by emailing me (jessunderquilts at yahoo dot com). 
We will play with a bunch of EPP shapes and ideas and get in some good stitching (and relaxation) hanging out poolside, at cafes, at the beach (!), and anywhere else we can find on this picturesque island.  Included is a Greek cooking class, lecture on traditional Greek needlework, and ample time to explore the area.  Registration is open until February 1st and quilters from everywhere are welcome (classes will be taught in English).

In order to get people thinking about the idea (and hopefully deciding to do it!), today I'm offering a giveaway if you help me spread the word about the retreat..
Would you like to win a copy of my book and two packs of English paper piecing templates?
To enter, do any (or all) of the following:
1.  Blog about the retreat and giveaway (go ahead and borrow the images in this post!), then come back and leave a comment with the link to your blog post.
2.  Find me on Instagram (@jessica_alex) and regram the giveaway pic with the tag #greekislandquiltretreat
3.  Post about the retreat/giveaway on Facebook with a link to this post, then come back and comment that you did.

I'll choose a winner on November 25th.
The giveaway and the retreat are open to everyone.  Thanks for helping me get the word out!
Good luck!!
