Crochet Red: Crocheting for Women's Heart Health, Knit Red: Stitching for Women's Heart Health, and Sew Red: Sewing and Quilting for Women's Heart Health by Laura Zander (Sixth & Spring Books, 2014) were written as part of an ongoing effort to spread awareness and educate women of the dangers of heart disease, which is the number one cause of death of women in the United States.

To support this worthy cause, dozens of textile celebrities have come together to contribute 30 projects to each book, - Erika Knight, Martin Storey, Melissa Leapman, Amy Butler, Edie Eckman, and Sharon Silverman, Linda Lee, Debbie Bliss, and many more. Each of these masterful contributors provides an in-depth guide to create their beautiful projects and their own take on the subject of heart disease and staying healthy. On top of this, there is an entire section devoted to the facts about heart health that you need to know. These books are perfect for lovers of crochet, knitting, or sewing looking to get informed and create some elegant heart-inspired projects, just in time for American Heart Month and Valentine's Day.

Leave a comment by 11:59 p.m. EST on February 21st and you could be one of four people chosen to win a book! Winners will be chosen at random and announced shortly afterwards.

beachedteach writes: Crocheting and working with my hands brings such rewards. The Red Heart has been apart of my life since childhood and mother knitting and crocheting, making house shoes and sweaters for all of us. I'm now a paraplegic and find so much pleasure in producing useful items with yarn. I, too, have a love of hearts; jewelry, pillows, etc.
