So there’s good news and not-so-good news from the DWQ Studio. First the not-so-good, so we can just get it out of the way and move on, at least temporarily: the infamous InchieSee & InchieDo Viewer Tool & Ruler Set is still not available, because the original manufacturer still hasn’t gotten it together to produce a quality product that I can sell. I did receive another set of samples that are greatly improved, but it’s still not perfect, and I won’t accept anything less.

Yipee!! The book is back from the printer and in the AQS warehouse, and much earlier than originally expected! I can now officially say that I’m a published author. WOW! That’s pretty cool, though it still seems a little unreal. Maybe when I actually have my hands on a copy, it will really sink in. 🙂
Inchie Quilts is available to order directly from AQS, or you can order it from me in about two weeks. I just ordered copies to be shipped to me, and they’ll take a week or two to arrive. I’ll be offering an introductory special on the Inchie Quilts book and InchieSee & InchieDo Viewer Tool and Ruler Set for just $35, more than 20% off the combined regular prices!
Since I’m here anyway, I’ll also tell you that one of my Inchie Quilts will be in the next issue of Irish Quilting, which should be on newstands in the first part of June. This is a quilt that is not in the book and the article features the quilt pattern and includes instructions to make Inchies! I’ll be sure to share pics when my copy of the magazine arrives. Well, there will be pictures of the book when it arrives as well! For now, it’s back to work writing Inchie workshop supply lists and handouts!
I know, I said there would be something of substance here by the end of the weekend, and now you’re thinking I lied. I suppose I did, technically. But here’s the excuse:
You see, it’s hard to get anything done with Fat Boy in my lap all the time. He’s just so big, and I have to move back from the keyboard so he’ll have space, and then it’s hard to type, not to mention having his tail right on the keyboard. What? You don’t believe he’s there all the time? Dangit. Well, it was worth the try anyway. 🙂
So what did happen that prevented that “substance” from appearing here? Life, and those “finishing touches” to the DreamWeaver’s Quilts Studio online shop that I mentioned before. I’ve been ordering stock, setting up accounts, planning promotions, and making sure everything will be ready to go on schedule.
So what types of products will be available at the DWQ Studio anyway? You’ll find many of the products that I use to make Inchies, some of which I’ve had a hard time finding myself. Two of the most notable items are Continue reading Inchies: The Inside Story
This was a great thing to wake up to this morning:
Even without the picture of the cover, it’s still a pretty awesome feeling to see your own book listed at Amazon.com! This caused quite a stir in our house on Saturday morning! The book is also listed at the AQS site, in the Upcoming Releases section and on it’s own page, and you can actually see a picture there as well as a short description. Continue reading Coming Soon!
