Well, if you’ve been looking for it in the US, you’ll probably be happy to know that Colour Confidence in Embroidery is now available through Amazon here in the States! Yippee!
Last year, I also reviewed Hazel Everett’s Goldwork: Techniques, Projects and Pure Inspiration. At the time, it was not available in the US yet, but you’ll now find Goldwork: Techniques, Projects and Pure Inspiration available through Amazon now, too. It actually came out a bit ago, so you may have already jumped on that one.
So, if you’ve been holding back, waiting for those books to be available in the US, there they are!
Now, Carolyn Pearce’s book, Home Sweet Home, is another story. Home Sweet Home is available in the US through Wooly Thread, but it’s not available through other book sellers yet, to my knowledge. I think it’s due out in the States “at large” in April some time.
However, I have an extra copy of Carolyn’s book, and I’d like to give one of you a chance to own it!
It’s a wonderful book full of many beautiful projects – some little, some bigger, and one Big Project, the workbox! What I like best about the book is its instructional value – once you’ve tried your hand at Carolyn’s projects, you can adapt the process for your own designs. It’s really a great book to have in your needlework library!
