I’m happy to help my friend Krista spread her good news today! She has authored a book titled Make It, Take It, published by Martingale. It’s so nice that she can talk about the book now after having kept quiet for so long! This is the fun part.
Let me tell you about the book. It’s is a collection of projects divided in half: projects you might make to bring with you on retreat (think project bags, etc) and then projects you might make while on retreat (placemats, pillows, etc). Krista talks a bit about her extensive experience running retreats and each contributor shares their experiences attending retreats. I designed two projects for the book that I will show you later on as part of the blog hop scheduled for April. But you can see one of my projects on the cover! It’s the pillow in the top right corner. It’s paper pieced…shocker, right? The thing that I love most about this book is that all the contributors (as well as the author) are friends and that makes it so much fun!
The books will be on sale at www.shopmartingale.com on February 10th before they are available in stores. The purchase from Martingale includes a free digital copy so you can take the book with you on retreat on your tablet, laptop or phone. Krista’s book will debut at QuiltCon and she has two signing scheduled in the vendor hall. More details will follow on her blog.
And of course you can preorder on Amazon. My quilt guild has ordered a couple of copies for our upcoming retreat. They will be the perfect giveaways! More to come in April. I can’t wait to share my second project with you then and for you to see all the other projects as well.
