How to Sew a Button: And Other Nifty Things Your Grandmother KnewNote: This contest has now ended. Congratulations to Angie for being lucky #53! Thank you all for your entries and please be sure to check back soon for more fabulous giveaways.

I shouldn’t admit this but I’m totally that person who will send her shirt that’s sporting a missing button to the dry cleaner in order to have it sewn back on. If my hem falls I set the pants aside and hope and pray that I’ll remember to pack them the next time I go home to Maine so that my grandmother can fix it. I often buy fake pie crust and I’ve never attempted to make chicken stock even once. There. Now you know all of my dirty little undomestic secrets.

But there’s hope for people like me (and you too)! This Tuesday, December 15th a fabulous little book with a shocking pink cover is being released that is sure to give confidence to even the most timid and delivery man addicted of us.

Erin Bried happened upon the idea for How to Sew a Button: And Other Nifty Things Your Grandmother Knew after a failed attempt at making rhubarb pie. I’ll simply mention that Swiss chard was involved… and it was this inedible moment that began her quest to seek out a host of essential life skills that she had forgotten. To accomplish this Erin touched base with grandmothers all over the country who had lived through The Great Depression. The insights she gleaned from interviewing this outstanding group of creative and energetic women are doubly essential to us now, especially given our current economic state.

Conveniently, as we’ve all begun to tighten our purse strings, this book has appeared on the scene to offer us more than 100 straightforward and step-by-step how-to’s for everyday life. Each is written in a practical yet humor filled and very approachable tone — as if your best friend suddenly morphed into a Donna Reed-Tina Fey hybrid.

This weekend, thanks to an advanced copy of How to Sew a Button, I successfully made my very first batch of delicious homemade gravy via Bried’s easy to follow and decidedly fear-free instructions. There is so much amazing content between the covers of this guide including how to: hone a knife, iron a shirt (wow do I need to study up on this one), clean an oven, tie a necktie, make a hot toddy, barter, start a book club, wear red lipstick, and my personal favorite how to make a Manhattan. CK’s grandparents always serve Manhattans when we visit and even though I’ve observed them being mixed a number of times I always seem to forget the steps (probably because one lovingly composed Manhattan goes straight to your head).

I’m confident that you’ll find dozens of useful tips in this book. I even discovered additional insights while reading write-ups on tasks that I thought I had down to a science. How to Sew a Button is a fantastic addition to your bedside table. In addition, I believe this title would make an excellent holiday present. Freaking out over what to buy for that friend, relative, or co-worker who has everything? Why not give them the gift of practical knowledge?! It will certainly last longer and be more appreciated than a box of chocolates or a scarf. Besides, after reading this book they’ll be able to knit their own.

Are you ready to test your luck at potentially winning your own must-have copy of  How to Sew a Button? If so, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post.

In addition, If you share the link to this contest on your own blog, Twitter, Facebook etc… you may have one additional entry for a total of two possible chances to win. If you choose this option please leave a link to your shout out as your second comment.  A winner will be selected via the random number generator this Friday, December 18th at 6:00 PM EST and then I’ll promptly arrange to have the book shipped to your home. Best of luck!

If you’d like to learn more about Erin Bried you can follow her on Twitter, read her blog, become a fan on Facebook, or view other fabulous how-to videos on YouTube.

O. My. Stars! I have a 16 yo that needs this book if she’s ever to leave the nest. It’s not that I don’t know/do these things already, it’s just that I’m too busy doing them to teach them (does this scream impatience?)!

2 Jelli December 14, 2009 at 10:25 am

I am sure that I have a lot to learn from this book. Moreover, I need a how-to handyman guide for how to change oil in a car or how to re-grout bathroom tile. Thanks for the giveaway!

3 Hänni December 14, 2009 at 10:26 am

I know I’m exempt from entering b/c hey, we’re practically family, but I just want to say that’s a really neat book!

4 Renovation Therapy December 14, 2009 at 10:26 am

My niece is getting this book for Christmas. Insta-classic.

5 rachelle December 14, 2009 at 11:06 am

sounds like a book i could use!

6 Carol December 14, 2009 at 11:46 am

This looks like a great gift idea! And maybe I’ll learn a few things too 🙂 I think I need a gravy lesson too!

7 Jess December 14, 2009 at 11:57 am

This book looks super handy!

8 Alana December 14, 2009 at 12:00 pm

12 Jeannette December 14, 2009 at 12:07 pm

and just a plain ol comment to say that if i don’t win this book, i’ll probably go buy it for someone. i have plenty of ‘have everything, need nothing’ friends 🙂

13 Laura December 14, 2009 at 12:12 pm

I am the same with my buttons! And my mom has tried to teach me so many times! I’d love to win this book.

14 Tina Snell December 14, 2009 at 12:14 pm

Pick me!

15 Kim December 14, 2009 at 12:20 pm

I would LOVE to learn all the things those grandmothers know. Especially how to iron a shirt. Every time my husband asks me on Sunday morning right before church I cuss the fact that I don’t have a method to that madness.

16 Jill December 14, 2009 at 12:34 pm

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that there are probably over a hundred benefits to me getting my hands on a book like this one 🙂

17 Jean Badgley December 14, 2009 at 12:35 pm

This sounds like a MUST have book in every home library

18 adrienne December 14, 2009 at 12:38 pm

This looks like an awesome book.

19 Kylee December 14, 2009 at 1:07 pm

Oooh, I totally need a copy of this!

20 michelle December 14, 2009 at 1:21 pm

Oh, I love books like this! Thanks for the chance to win it!

21 Dani December 14, 2009 at 1:36 pm

Even though I’m a grandmother, I bet there are things I could learn from this book, too. Thanks for a chance at the giveaway, Erin!

22 Dani December 14, 2009 at 1:39 pm

I tweeted, but I’m not sure how to do a link. I’m ddh77 and I included @girlieerin in the tweet.

23 Michele December 14, 2009 at 1:51 pm

Sounds like a great book! I’m like you. I make a pile of things that need to be fixed and bring them to my mom. I do not know how to sew a button at all!

24 heather December 14, 2009 at 1:58 pm

what a fabulous book! i was just explaining who Heloise is to my boyfriend earlier — this seems like it would be right up her alley. i’ll have to look for this.



25 amber December 14, 2009 at 2:00 pm

Yay for do it yourself – no fear!

26 Vicki June December 14, 2009 at 2:29 pm

It looks like a cute book

27 Jade B December 14, 2009 at 2:42 pm

What a perfect christmas gift idea. I might have to buy one for myself and a few extra for gifts!

28 Sarah December 14, 2009 at 2:42 pm

I could sure use some help folding those darned fitted sheets! That seems like something this book would include.

29 Erin December 14, 2009 at 2:45 pm

Hi Sarah – How to Sew a Button actually does include a fitted sheet how-to 🙂

30 Jade B December 14, 2009 at 2:45 pm
31 Elaine December 14, 2009 at 3:12 pm

Looks like a great gift for a certain soon-to-be-graduating-from-college girl I love….
Thanks for being so generous!

32 Erin December 14, 2009 at 4:01 pm

Oh goodness – I need this book! I just learned how to sew a button (at the ripe old age of 26) and since then, I’ve been overcome with crazy urges to be all domestic and whatnot.

Plus, my name is Erin, your name is Erin, the author’s name is Erin…fate, perhaps?

33 Hannah V. December 14, 2009 at 4:09 pm

This sounds perfect, thanks for the chance to win!

34 Claire December 14, 2009 at 4:13 pm

What a clever book idea! And so resourceful… I love that the ideas came from WWII grandmas

35 Cindy December 14, 2009 at 4:28 pm

you have no idea how much i need this!

36 Ruta December 14, 2009 at 4:29 pm

Perfect for two of my sisters! One is heading off to college, the other saves her ironing for me when I visit…

37 trek December 14, 2009 at 4:45 pm

Sounds like an awesome little volume to have at your fingertips! Please count me in.

38 Kimberly Choi December 14, 2009 at 4:50 pm

I think I would spend hours reading this, what a great give away 🙂

39 Annie December 14, 2009 at 4:55 pm

40 Kristen December 14, 2009 at 5:09 pm

This book looks absolutely brilliant! I will absolutely purchase it if I’m not lucky enough to win it here 😀

41 Monica H December 14, 2009 at 5:30 pm

This would be a perfect newlywed gift as well. And it’s pink!

42 Kelsea December 14, 2009 at 6:38 pm

I could definitely use this book. As a college student, it would be especially useful. 🙂

43 Jessica December 14, 2009 at 7:30 pm

I could so use this book!

44 Shannon December 14, 2009 at 7:49 pm

54 Emily December 15, 2009 at 5:58 am

Definitely sounds like a good book for lots of people.

55 Beth G. December 15, 2009 at 7:49 am

What a great book to have and give everyone!!! Thanks for the tip!

56 wummy December 15, 2009 at 8:55 am

LOL We all wait for Gram to fix our sewing things!! Remember when she did CK’s socks one year!!!

57 Valerie December 15, 2009 at 9:19 am

Good Morning from *frosty* southern Manitoba!! Sounds like a f-u-n book, many thanks, *Merry Christmas*, cheers, Valerie.

58 Diane December 15, 2009 at 9:46 am

I was lucky enough to have my grandmother living with us all my single life. I’m 67, and still can’t make gravy or pie crust the way she did, but you can teach an old dog new tricks IF the dog is willing to learn. I’m more than willing so I hope I win.

59 Erin December 15, 2009 at 9:46 am

Great giveaway! Thanks, Erin. Happy Holidays! 🙂

60 Rachel December 15, 2009 at 10:46 am

What a fun book!

61 Fuji Mama December 15, 2009 at 10:54 am

What a neat book! Definitely a topic that needs attention. I can’t believe how many skills have been lost. Our grandmothers must be shocked at how little our generation knows!

62 Claire December 15, 2009 at 11:06 am

This book looks fantastic! I think most people these days don’t know how to perform some of these formerly simple tasks that our ancestors took care of without a second thought.

63 Kerstin December 15, 2009 at 11:17 am

Sounds like a very helpful book! I buy Pillsbury crusts sometimes too 🙂 And I have no idea how to iron.

64 Shimmy Shake December 15, 2009 at 11:24 am

Wow, I would love to win!!

65 Penny December 15, 2009 at 11:25 am

Hey, I just found out about this book from Alison Bechdel’s blog, and it looks great!

66 Penny December 15, 2009 at 11:28 am

I tweeted this contest too!

67 Herstorian December 15, 2009 at 11:46 am

68 Herstorian December 15, 2009 at 11:47 am
69 uncleers December 15, 2009 at 11:50 am

Great Holiday ides! Thanks.

70 molly December 15, 2009 at 11:52 am

Brilliant book! Thanks for writing about it. The list of tips made me think fondly of my grandmother who once said “See? All you need is a little red lipstick.”

71 Jamie December 15, 2009 at 12:05 pm

I am almost 29 and could use this book…all those things my mom tried to teach me and I just never would learn!! 🙂

72 Ashley December 15, 2009 at 12:06 pm

What a great idea for a book!
I’d love to win it!


73 Melissa Doherty December 15, 2009 at 1:20 pm

I really could use this book!!! I am completely inept at anything domestic!

74 Danielle December 15, 2009 at 1:55 pm

GREAT Give-A-Way!!! This book is at the top of my need to purchase list! I hope I win!! 🙂

75 Amy December 15, 2009 at 2:43 pm

I literally can not sew a button! I save these unfortunate clothing items for my mother to fix when she comes to visit me, or I pack them when I’m going to visit her.

This would be a very helpful book to have around for me.. and I’m sure my mother would appreciate it too!

76 Michael December 15, 2009 at 3:14 pm

I’d love to be able to give this to my wife for the holidays!

77 Rebecca Petersen December 15, 2009 at 4:27 pm

I think I learned to sew a button in 7th grade home ec and then promptly forgot it. I have a sewing machine and don’t know how to use it either. I could REALLY use this book for a variety of things.

78 Kim Winn December 15, 2009 at 6:33 pm

pick me!

79 Nat December 15, 2009 at 6:46 pm

I already knit and sew a bit, but this book sounds great! Thanks for the opportunity to try and win it!

80 Lauren Brown December 15, 2009 at 10:32 pm

Boy do I need this book. I’m about to graduate college and I feel like I have zero skills for living on my own- in my world, pants do not get hemmed, buttons stay in a jar or get lost and things that are supposed to be easy like properly hard boiling eggs just seem to go wrong.

81 yael December 16, 2009 at 12:11 am

Sounds like a great gift for my newly-married daughter!

82 jacquie December 16, 2009 at 12:39 am

i want to know how to make a manhatten also 🙂

83 Aaron H. December 16, 2009 at 2:31 am

Yessss, want it. And +1 for being the only guy in this entire comments block to admit he wants it for himself (and not Michael who ‘wants it for his wife’… suuurrre). haha

83 FTW!

84 Jesselyn December 16, 2009 at 9:43 am

I would LOVE to win this!

85 Amanda December 16, 2009 at 10:34 am

Cool book! Let’s see if 85 is a lucky number 🙂

86 Mary December 16, 2009 at 12:02 pm

Just moved out on my own for the first time…could really use this book!!

87 Amy December 16, 2009 at 12:10 pm

Wow, I really need this book!

88 leslie December 16, 2009 at 12:10 pm


89 Lenna December 16, 2009 at 12:13 pm

My 40 year old daughter needs this book! She lives six hours away, and still brings all of her mending home! Thanks for the great giveaway!

90 Elizabeth December 16, 2009 at 12:18 pm

As a woman who’s husband does the ironing and sewing on of buttons I definitely need a how-to. My mom tried so hard to teach me these little things but I had other things on my mind (boys!) and I would love to teach these to my kids. My daughter and my sons!!

91 Megan May December 16, 2009 at 12:26 pm

I need this so bad! Great giveaway 🙂

92 lauren December 16, 2009 at 12:30 pm

What a cute book! I love this.

Thanks for the giveaway. 🙂

93 Lara December 16, 2009 at 12:34 pm

What a great idea for a book. I could certainly use help with buttons, pies, and gravy… not to mention hems and nearly any other household task my mom used to take care of for me!

94 Felicia Stover December 16, 2009 at 12:34 pm

97 Holly @ Domestic Dork December 16, 2009 at 12:47 pm

I was just telling my ManDork the other day that I know how to sew a button but not the proper way. lol

98 Sophia December 16, 2009 at 12:52 pm

I knit, I bake pies, I try to fix almost everything and my friends already call me grandma!!!
The book could be my bible!!!

99 Sarah Teel December 16, 2009 at 12:58 pm

I would love to win this book, would be such a darling Christmas present to my sweet sister!

100 Molomatic December 16, 2009 at 1:22 pm

102 Kristine December 16, 2009 at 1:31 pm

Wow, what a great resource! Nice giveaway!

103 Lianne Nichols December 16, 2009 at 1:37 pm

My husband would love it if I won this book. I’m forever saying that I don’t know how to do certain things. Then he gives me this look and says, “Not ever your grandma?”. This would be hysterical!!

104 Sarah Mac December 16, 2009 at 1:47 pm

What a wonderful book!

105 Robin December 16, 2009 at 1:55 pm

I would LOVE to win this! I too have that I-don’t-know-how-to-sew-on-a-button issue.

I would love to win this! It sounds like something I need!

112 Rachel December 16, 2009 at 2:46 pm

Great idea for a book…who couldn’t use this?

113 Katie S December 16, 2009 at 2:51 pm

I could really use this book. It’s embarrassing because I currently rely on my boyfriend to sew buttons back on clothing. It’s something I need to learn to do myself! Thank you for the giveaway.

114 Maura December 16, 2009 at 3:23 pm

This book looks so fun. I’d love to win it!

115 Lori December 16, 2009 at 3:29 pm

118 JOY AUKER December 16, 2009 at 4:06 pm

I soooo need a copy of this book! It looks wonderful. I have my own grams on speed-dial because I ALWAYS have a question for her.

119 bethany December 16, 2009 at 4:12 pm

i know nothing about sewing.

120 lil D December 16, 2009 at 4:20 pm

As a young woman, in my mid20s and facing the prospect of engagement and kids, this book seems like it could become a go-to lifesaver for a bunch of different problems I will eventually encounter in my new roles. This is the type of stuff I wish my Grandma, who is still alive but has no memory, would have taught me.

121 marta December 16, 2009 at 4:27 pm

Clever! Sounds great!

122 Heidi Kratzke December 16, 2009 at 4:46 pm

This is such a great giveaway. That book would be such a help to me!

123 Megan December 16, 2009 at 5:58 pm

You have no idea how badly my husband thinks I need this book.

124 Angela December 16, 2009 at 6:19 pm

This looks so great! It can go into my regular rotation, along with my other favorite, “Where’s Mom Now that I Need Her?”

125 Jennifer Lee December 16, 2009 at 6:23 pm

One of my guys friends has been asking me to sew on some buttons that fell off of his clothes, and for once, I’d like to know how to do it properly!

126 Shannon December 16, 2009 at 6:29 pm

I think I need this book! Just put it on my amazon wishlist! 🙂

127 Valorie S December 16, 2009 at 7:07 pm

This book sounds awesome, thanks for the chance to win.

128 Amanda O. December 16, 2009 at 7:11 pm

This is my favorite type of book to read!

129 kVa December 16, 2009 at 7:53 pm

I love the idea behind this book! My husband thinks I walk on water b/c I can sew buttons back on!

130 kVa December 16, 2009 at 7:53 pm
131 Caitlin December 16, 2009 at 8:38 pm

Oh my goodness, could I use this! There are so many seemingly common sense things that have disappeared from our collective consciousness that I think we could all use the refresher (you could have arranged for a few thousand of these books to give away, right?) but I would be THRILLED to win this!! Thanks for the chance.

132 Angel December 16, 2009 at 8:39 pm

I’d love to win this!

133 joan December 16, 2009 at 8:44 pm

I would love this! My daughter would love this!

134 Dee Ramirez December 16, 2009 at 9:01 pm

I thought it would be a great gift, but reading some of your comments – maybe I need to keep it for myself!

135 Constance December 16, 2009 at 9:13 pm

I would love to win this; I really want to be more self reliant instead of being part of such a “throw away” society. I’d love to be able to mend my own clothes or fix things around the house, and tons of other things I currently have to rely on others to do for me =( Thanks!

136 Michelle December 16, 2009 at 9:25 pm

Would love to win this!! I’m sure it is full of useful information and my grandmother would be very proud if I knew how to do all of the things!

137 Sarah December 16, 2009 at 9:28 pm

I’d love to win!

138 Sarah December 16, 2009 at 9:31 pm
139 Anna December 16, 2009 at 9:40 pm

This book looks very cool! I definitely could use a lot of grandmotherly wisdom. I’m proud of myself for finally learning to iron. Now if I could just cook pasta well regularly.

140 Mallory December 16, 2009 at 10:15 pm

I am a newlywed and I am realizing all of the things I wish I had learned from my grandmother! 🙂

141 dymphna December 16, 2009 at 10:53 pm

I need to share this with my daughter, hope i win

142 Beth December 16, 2009 at 10:56 pm

Hope I’m the lucky winner.

143 Denise December 16, 2009 at 11:42 pm

I hope I win, I have no grandma’s around so I need the advice.

144 Lillie T. December 17, 2009 at 12:27 am

I love the idea of this book. I often look around at the craziness that is my house and wonder how my Grandma kept everything just so when my Mom and Aunt were little. So much wisdom in that generation!
