Yes My Book is BACK IN STOCK - 50 Styles of Quilting - Beyond Missionary Stippling!
It has one typo that manged to be corrected for the first print run but revisited the second print run??? In years to come historians will be able to identify 1st editions from 2nd editions! but I like the typo and think I will keep it. My book has 20 videos embedded in to the text via the magic of a free app called Aurasma for your ipad and iphone and the like. On the cover in the description I have typed "imbedded" ooppps but now I think I like the reference to the "i" as in iphone and ipad...I am just so hip and cool with technology baby!
Long way of saying - feel free to order my book - it is back in stock and I shall bring some to Brisbane next week teaching at Pleasuresew and Sewco - see u there.
PS International folks - I am investigating creating an e book so you can pay and down load the book yourself and avoid postage - shall keep you posted.

My Creative Daughter Ineka writes herself a "Bucket List" for the holidays and day 1 completed a UFO from the Christmas holidays. She had a MODA jelly roll of lime green and highly decorative fine detail designs. She can piece as my mum taught her...she created the backdrop and wanted to create a stamp cushion. She loves all things retro - and all things french so her bedroom is very eclectic and loves old stamps like in the 70s with the Queens portrait. It is also quite ironically appropriate coz growing up, the kids at school would ask me if my mum was the Queen cos they did look similar with same hair etc. The kids at school must have been fairly convincing coz one day I came home and actually asked my mum if she was in fact the Queen.
Ineka appliqued the Queens face and did lots of free-motion quilting in the background lime green on lime green but she actually asked to look thru my new book "50 Styles of Quilting" for inspiration! She is my biggest fan and I am hers! Ineka was definite she wanted to create the perforated edges of the stamp. I was definite it would not work but..look, she did it! AWESOME! day 1 of school holidays? Finish a UFO...tick. Well Done Ineka.
On another note - my BFF Michelle Pearson from Handcrafters House in Midland Perth has been awarded National dealer of the Year for 2012 ( also 2010) for her work with Husqvarna, Singer and AccuQuilt. Congratulations Michelle and Handcrafters House team.
