Digital is available, printed book coming soon!


As of January 10, I went ahead and put the PDF version of my new book out for sale. It's available as an instant download both in my Etsy shop, and also in my Craftsy pattern store.
There will be a printed book coming soon! It's currently at the print shop getting put together.

I worked very hard on this book, and have to admit that I'm pleased with it - and actually amazed that it got done! I hope those who buy it will enjoy it.

As with all my patterns, I'm totally happy when people post pictures of the things they've made from my designs. BUT, please respect my copyright and do not post my files or pictures of the inside pages of my book ANYWHERE. Just mentioning this, because occasionally I've seen some copyrighted work posted on places like Google+ and Pinterest. This is piracy and hurts the designer because they depend on sales of their patterns to make a living. If designers are not respected, they will stop sharing their designs, and the whole craft will be poorer as a result.

It's okay to "pin" the covers of the book, though - that's free advertising.

It's on my wish list, gong for the hard cover.
I totally agree with you I hate to see pages from books on Pinterest, I thought they might have stopped it due to copyright.
