I'm so excited to announce my new book with Chronicle, Sewing For All Seasons!
It's a collection of twenty-four projects to sew all year round, including a spring flowers-inspired wrap skirt, a sunny and colorful picnic quilt, a super-handy French press and coffee cup cozy set, and a cozy, pretty pair of wool slippers. I collaborated with my lovely editor at Chronicle, Laura Lee, on color stories (all put together on library cards like the ones on the cover!) and inspiration boards to set the tone for each season, and I love how lush and colorful the book is as a hardback... I couldn't be happier with it.
Sewing For All Seasons came out on October 15th - I will be doing several book events this fall and would love to see you at one of them!
- Sunday, October 13, Powell's City of Books is hosting a book signing at 4pm, and I'll be drawing winners for holiday projects prizes.

You can order Sewing For All Seasons through Chronicle Books, Powell's Books, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, or your favorite local bookstore.

I think...
