Sisters on the Fly, a 2-Winner Giveaway!

Denver is always fun, made the more so when my very, very creative friend, Irene Rawlings, has a tidbit of time to spend with me. Such was the nice surprise last week, which is how I was able to secure a photo of us to accompany this Sisters on the Fly 2-Winners Giveaway!

Irene is the author of the very first book about the traveling sisterhood known as Sisters on the Fly. Sisters on the Fly: Caravans, Campfires, and Tales from the Road celebrates the camaraderie and travels of a group of women who live by the motto “we have more fun than anyone.” Even if you’re not into fishing, much less outdoorsy anything, you will love this book. It’s a travelogue like no other.

Irene and I not only share a friendship – we’re both published by Andrews McMeel, and it’s through AM that I’m able to offer two pre-publication copies of SOTF!

So here’s the deal. You can enter to win twice: once by leaving a comment at the end of this blog entry and another as a subscriber to my Apron Memories newsletter. If you’re already a subscriber, then you’re already in the running! Easy breezy.

Timeline on this 2-Winner Giveaway: Friday, May 7th is the last day of entry. Winners announced Saturday, May 8th (ten days before the book’s official publication, May 18th).

I was turned on to SOTF by my friends Grace Brown and Rene Groom, who are gearing up for a Spokane/Posser, WA gathering, complete with barn dance! This will be some good time, and missing out is a bummer. However, when it comes to SOTF, another good time is just around the bend.

Tie One On…an apron, of course!


  1. Dear Ellynanne, I’m so happy to be your friend and that you’re giving two copies of my book, Sisters on the Fly, away on your awesome Apron Memories website. I only have one question. When we’re standing together, why do you always look so gorgeous and I always look goofy? xoxoxo Irene

  2. Hi EllynAnne! It was so nice to finally meet and talk with you last week on the phone. Bet that pound cake was delish! I went vintage hunting this weekend and found a wonderful 1960’s Knott’s Berry Farm souvenir apron. Sounds like you had a wonderful visit with your friend. The book sounds interesting. Please enter me in your giveaway.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

  3. hahaha! …just know that being a SOTF & “collecting” Vintage Trailers is habit forming! LOL!
    Sooo, I guess the Million Dollar question is…when are you & Irene going to get vintage trailers & come play with us? haha!
    Prosser this weekend & then our June outting for the Farm Chick show…then the NorthWest Gathering up in Wenatchee, WA.
    Whew! way to much fun…
    Like our group motto says..”We have more fun then anyone”
    Thanx for having the drawing for Irene’s cool book.
    Now go get a trailer so you can have a blast decorating your trailer.

  4. This looks like a really neat book! Right up my alley. I love your blog. I recently started blogging too, but know very little about it so far. Would love to make my blog as wonderful as yours some day. Thanks, Rebecca

  5. Dear Ellynanne,
    I was hoping to get my hands on an advanced copy myself for the event I am hosting here in Prosser this weekend with some of the other girls of SOTF.. but.. I will have to just be content knowing that I was at this event with Irene last year and what fun we had on the banks of the Spokane River. Hey Irene, I think you both look gorgeous in the photo…. all the success in the world to both of you….

  6. I saw your Sisters on the Fly give-away on Facebook and immediately decided I had to try for the book. I can’t wait for the Sisters to come to Oregon! Imagine my surprise when I came to Apron Memories and discovered that two of the Apron books by EllynAnne are laying on my coffee table…they were given to me at Christmas by a very good friend and I absolutely love them! I also have a collection of home made aprons given to me by friends. I must be destined to become a Sister sometime in my life I guess. I have been on the hunt for a trailer for several years but haven’t found the right one yet. I would love to win the book and give some copies to several very good friends who would benefit from knowing some Sisters at this time in their lives. Thank you and look forward to hearing…

  7. Looking forward to the book, I’m sister #1209, fish and have a vintage trailer……. I also have some vintage aprons that I love, so I’m a new newsletter subscriber!

  8. Heya. . .I saw the video of Sisters on the Fly on U-Tube and I thought “what fun!” even if I’ve never camped in my life and am very private about my bathroom habits. . .Next year I hope to join you as an AM author! Yes, I’m ready and the proposal is ready to mail. Do you know an agent I could call? Really and truly, an agent?

  9. I am a sister on the fly and i can’t wait for the book and i aksi make and love aprons, so these two are right up my alley.
    you both a special “sisters”.

  10. Oh what fun. I am a sister with a vintage trailer decorated in a 50’s kitchy theme. I love to sew and a new apron would be just the thing to wear when I am wandering around the campsite with my other sisters.

  11. Just decided on a theme for my kitchen in the house we just built…aprons and my “mama”..Actually my Grandamother, but she was Mama to me. Love you and sisters…am lookin for a wee trailer!

  14. Hi Ellyanne,

    Love your blog! My next trailer will be all 40’s and 50’s decor. I already have the decor and the vintage aprons to fill it up. I emailed you a photo taken at my grandmothers at Christmas in the late 50’s…all the women in their best aprons serving Christmas dinner. Thanks for the memories!

  16. Dear Ellynanne,

    I’ve been a follower for a long time but did not receive the April 26th update. I’m also sister #911 and I agree with Grace….you need to be one of us….we have more fun than anyone! I’d love to be included in the drawing for the Sister’s great new book.
