Book Signing!

It is official! My book Make It, Take It: 16 Cute and Clever Projects to Sew With Friends will officially launch at QuiltCon!! I'm so excited for many reasons, but mostly because I'll be able to share it with friends from all over the blogosphere that I'll be meeting for the first time in person at QuiltCon. Many of the contributors to my book will be there as well, including Felicity, Krista W., Krista F., Leanne and Cindy!

The book officially releases February 10th (only 16 more sleeps). You'll be able to purchase a hard copy starting that day here. Your purchase directly from Martingale automatically includes a FREE digital copy so that you can take it along on your device to your next retreat, or to shop for supplies!

If you're headed to Austin for QuiltCon, you'll be able to purchase a copy in person there before it is available in any store, or shipping from Amazon!  Come see me on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in the Island Quilter Booth #109 or at 1:00 p.m. at Modern Cottons/The Quilt Haus Booth #306 (both of which are adjacent to the demo area). I'll sign your book and give you one of my awesome "Retreats Rule!" buttons.  If you've already pre-ordered your book (THANK YOU!), please stop by and say hello, I'll have a button & book plate to sign for you as well.  If all else fails, flag me down in the show hall or at the Moda party!

All of the contributors will participate in a blog tour in early April where you'll learn more about the inspiration behind each of their projects and have lots of chances to win your own copy of the book. Stay tuned for more details and a schedule coming later in March.
