On Friday, the advance copy of Mandalas to Embroider arrived!! And it came just a couple of days after all the embroideries and other materials were returned to me. So lots of happy stitchy post!!
If you are near London, I’d like to invite you to a little party for the book and all the work that went into it. On November 24th 6-8 PM at The Village Haberdashery in West Hampstead. Please RSVP so I know how many people are coming, I don’t want to run out of wine and cake! ;-)
Count me in! I’ll be at the party. There will be a limited availability of book copies to buy as well.
I’ll have some of the book embroideries there to look at and there will be a raffle for a stitchy prize.
Of course, if you can’t make it to the party, you can also pre-order a copy to be sent to you. All pre-orders will receive a little something extra as a thank you.
I really, really appreciate pre-orders — they do make a difference for authors. They create a buzz among booksellers, the media, and other readers. So if you’re interested in my new book, and you have the time and inclination, it helps to give the book a boost when you pre-order. Plus you’ll get it sooner.
And yes, I totally understand if you order it from Amazon or elsewhere that can offer you free shipping. Unfortunately I can’t do that, but I will wrap your book in pretty tissue paper. ;-)
Here’s one of the spreads from the book, this mandala is called Poinsettia Flourish. I love the photos of the embroideries, styling and photography by Stacy Grant.
I did a short video of me flicking through the book, if you fancy a look inside it. :-)
