Fabric Printing at Home Pre-Order Giveaway Starts Today! Extended a week! Now running through November 10!!

Hi friends!
Today marks the beginning of my first sojourn into marketing my book! Deep breath here (laced with excitement and anticipation!)...

I'd like to announce the Pre-Order Signed Book Plate and Fabric Pack Giveaway for Fabric Printing at Home!

Here's how it works:
The giveaway takes place from Monday, October 20 through Monday, November 10, 2014 and includes autographed bookplates for the first one hundred who follow the steps below.  Participants will also be entered into a drawing for a selection of hand painted and printed fabrics designed and created by me.

I call this fabric, Fiesta! Doesn't it look festive?!

Steps for Entering the Pre-Order Giveaway for Fabric Printing at Home:

1. If you haven’t ordered Fabric Printing at Home yet and want to take part in the giveaway, just click on the photo of my book in the right-hand column of this blog (or the highlighted book title anywhere in this description of the giveaway) and it will automatically direct you to the Quarry Bookstore where you can choose your favorite online bookseller to pre-order my book. If you’ve already pre-ordered my book (thanks!), just continue with the steps below to join the giveaway.

2. After pre-ordering Fabric Printing at Home, you’ll need to send an email with proof of purchase to Be sure to also include a mailing address and if you are among the first one hundred to respond, you will receive an autographed bookplate! Stick it in your book when it arrives and viola, you will now own (or can gift) a copy of Fabric Printing at Home signed by yours truly!

3. Whether or not you are among the first one hundred to respond, your proof of purchase automatically makes you eligible for the entry in the fabric giveaway.

4. The pre-order giveaway ends at midnight (Eastern USA time) on Monday, November 10, 2014. On Tuesday, November 11, a winner will be randomly chosen to receive the selection of hand painted and printed fat quarter fabrics. Good luck!!

Thinking this one needs another layer. What do you think?

I've gotten a start on the giveaway fabrics but will continue to update you about my progress over the next couple of weeks. If you'd like to know how I created the piece below, see Issue #22 of Julie B Booth Surface Design News.

I've titled this one Aurora Borealis.
P.S.: If you have questions, just leave a comment here and I'll get back to you.


  1. Congratulations on this book marketing adventure!

    1. It is certainly an adventure, Mary Ann! Thanks!

  2. What a great idea! The excitement certainly must be mounting as your publication date draws near : ) You'll be happy to know it's on, which means people in Italy can get it more easily too.
    As for the fabric you asked could add another layer if you are inspired to, but the design could also be great as the first layer for the winner's own project-or used to complement other patterns (just my two cents' worth)...

    1. Hi Lisa- I have to agree with you that perhaps that piece of fabric is a good start for someone else. The excitement is mounting! I'd love it if more people took part in this first giveaway...esp those who might not be able to get a signed copy any other way. Spread the word!! :)
