Remember the book Home Sweet Home by Carolyn Pearce? I reviewed it when it first came out, and it proved to be quite a popular book – so much so that it sold out and whether or not it would ever be printed again was uncertain.
Home Sweet Home is a jolly book for learning finished techniques and for making finished embroidered items. And the good news is – Country Bumpkin is having it re-printed! If you want to be in on when it’s back in stock, sign up for the Country Bumpkin newsletter. That’s where all their news first appears, and it’s your best bet for notification as soon as the book is available.
And speaking of Home Sweet Home, the Stitching Shop in Denver, Colorado has apparently managed to source all the supplies for the project in the book, to sell them as a kit. They also have (or had) a few copies of the book left at the time I communicated with them, but the copies are for sale only in conjunction with the kit.
I couldn’t find the actual kit on the website, but if you’re really keen to have the kit for the projects in the book, I’d definitely drop them a line!
If you live in Colorado and are looking for a needlework shop, you might check them out. It looks like a nice shop – it’s on my list of places to visit next time I head west to the mountains.
I’m excited about the re-printing of this book! It’s hard to find through used booksellers. I found one French copy available for 40 or so euros, but other than that, unless you can find it still in stock at a local needlework shop, it’s hard to come by.
Here’s hoping you can fit in a little stitching this weekend. Are you working on anything fantastic? If all the stars and planets are aligned in my favor, I’m planning to finish one particular project today – I’ll show it to you next week.
