It's here! It's here! My book DIY Woven Art: Inspiration and Instruction for Handmade Wall Hangings, Rugs, and More is finally available for pre-order!!! I may or may not have purchased the first copy back in February when it was a mere text listing but now that there's something for everyone to see, it's feeling very exciting! I'm incredibly proud and honored to have been invited to write this book for Interweave Press as it has always been a dream to get published. I am also thrilled that I was able to be a part of a resource that will help anyone that's ever wanted to learn to weave on a frame loom but didn't have access to a workshop or felt overwhelmed with finding more than one tutorial in the same place to answer their questions. Now there's a physical, tangible resource with all of the stitches and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the basics of frame loom weaving and discover your personal style!
Pre-order sales, from what I've heard through the grapevine, act as forecasters for how many copies big bookstores purchase as inventory so I'm passing that information along if you've been anticipating the pre-release along with me. Orders made now go a long way in the way the publishing world works so if you purchase yours now rather than in September after it's hit bookstores, you'll be getting a huge virtual hug from me and a giant THANK YOU for supporting this big dream of mine! Find it here through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Indie Bound.
It's been a good week, friends. I got in some good friend time with gals I haven't seen in awhile, made plans for more friend time with another gal, started finalizing my next e-course with A Beautiful Mess, have a podcast interview scheduled with the lovely Elise Blaha-Cripe, and got a few other exciting business e-mails that I am eager to explore! I'm ever so thankful for all of the opportunities that are showing up or are already in the works and owe so much of it to the support from readers and followers.
Thank you for sharing in my excitement, friends!
