Sewing School. The manuscript went into the mail to Storey Publishing today. Yes, today! So, you can imagine our relief and excitement. It really is amazing to think that we'll hopefully inspire a bunch of cute kids out there to go and machine sew! Don't rush to the store yet, though. It'll take about a year for the book to come out. In the meantime, we'll have tons of re-writes and re-shoots and go back and forth.
Recently, I've noticed a few blog posts about writing a craft book. I love the process described by Ellen at The Long Thread. She really takes you through the ideas of a book to the final product. The amazing Kathreen Ricketson at Whipup also did a 3-part series about getting a craft book published - great stuff with lots of resources.
So now you know why my posts have been sporadic and not much kid-sewing these past few weeks. But have no fear, we have lots to share with you soon. Some new projects and great ideas for kids who like to sew!
