I’m super excited to visit New York for the first time in five years this week – and so happy that Brett Bara is hosting a book party for me at her beautiful new craft space, Brooklyn Craft Company, on Saturday morning!
We will be doing a Holiday Garlands project from Sewing for all Seasons, using a fabulous brand-new Accu-Quilt Go! Cutter (yay) and some of my favorite fabrics! You can buy a signed copy of the book (which will come with a bonus coffee cozy kit) and we’ll be serving coffee, donuts, and mimosas, too. The party is completely free and you don’t need to RSVP, just please come by Brooklyn Craft Company to have some coffee and make garlands with us!
Brett is lovely (you may know her wonderful book, Sewing in a Straight Line, which is one of my favorites) and I was so honored that she and Denyse Schmidt wrote such kind words for the back cover of Sewing for all Seasons.
Guinevere posted a very nice interview with me on their blog yesterday, and you can see my pictures at @chroniclebooks all week. This is my favorite one – how could it not be?
This is Mt. Hood Organic Farms outside of Parkdale, south of Hood River – go buy the best apples you’ve ever had in your life and then hang out for a picnic in their meadow with this incredible view. That was our afternoon on Saturday, and it was just awesome. My week has certainly contained some less photogenic moments but I was grateful for this one!
