There’s a lot to look forward to this month. Apples are in season (hello, apple pie!), local yarn stores are stocked with wool and other cold-weather yarns, and hot chocolate is back on the menu at your favorite bakery. But we have something that’s better than all three of those combined: Craft Month at Chronicle Books!
Each month, Chronicle Books chooses an Eye Candy theme and offers e-books in that category for less than $3.99. Lucky for us, September is Craft Month.
To make this deal even sweeter, our friends at Chronicle Books are offering one lucky Craftsy member the entire collection of Craft Month e-books for FREE! To enter, just head here by September 28, 2013. Then, comment on this blog post letting us know what craft project you’re planning to make this month. We’ll randomly select the winner on September 29, 2013.
Here’s just a little taste of what’s in the e-book collection. Get ready to drool.
Amy Butler’s Style Stitches
If you’re an Amy Butler fan, get ready to add tons of bags to your to-craft list. This book has 12 patterns that, with variations, can turn into 26 different bags ranging from clutches to hobo bags.
Heart Felt Knits by Tamara Mello
Take one look at these nesting bowls and you’ll want to crawl right into this knitting book full of 25 knitted and felted projects. You might also be surprised to find actress Christina Hendricks, who popped up on our list of famous knitters, as the cover model for this book.
Embroidered Effects by Jenny Hart
Fans of embroidery probably recognize Jenny Hart’s work from the fantastic Sublime Stitching patterns and supplies. Craftsy members are fans of Jenny’s work, too. You’ll see some of Sublime Stitching’s patterns floating around Craftsy, like sushi napkins and glow-in-the-dark thread, straight from Jenny’s shop, and even jeans embroidered with Jenny’s rock and roll patterns.
This book, like the Sublime shop, is a beautiful collection of stitches, instructions, and patterns you can print at home.

Whether you’re brand new to freelancing or you’ve owned your own business for a while, you’ll find the tips in this book both useful and inspiring. The book also includes interviews with other creative business owners, so you’re getting advice from many different types of people and backgrounds.
