Dreams do come true!
I'm excited to announce that on September 4th of this year, my first BOOK will be released! It's been over a year in the making, and now I can finally share this amazing news with you!
I've always had a passion for sewing, and I knew that if I wanted to be happy, I would do what I love. Over the past few years, one thing has lead to another and my dreams have turned into reality. But dreams don't come true without hard work.
Always go with your passions. Never ask if it's realistic or not. - Deepak Chopra
My dream of writing a book is finally coming true! It may have taken over a year, but some of the best dreams can't happen overnight!
My book is called Create with Cork Fabric and it includes 17 upscale projects made from cork fabric such as bags, accessories, and home decor!
I had always thought of cork as stiff and brittle, but I soon found out how wrong I was. My love of cork fabric began the moment I felt how soft and pliable it was. After sewing with cork fabric for the first time, I was hooked.
I wrote this book because I don’t want you to be afraid of sewing with this unique material. Each of the projects in this book include basic techniques for sewing with cork. It’s my hope that as you work through the projects, your confidence will increase and you’ll be inspired to pursue other projects that use cork fabric.
I can't believe I'm actually saying this... but you can now pre-order my book!!! (Eeeek!) Can you tell how excited I am?! Otherwise, you can always request it at your local quilt shop! I'd love to come for a book signing or teach a project from my book. Please shop local when you can!
Thanks for hearing my big news! September can't come soon enough!
