Coming soon!!!!!

In my last post, I wrote about an opportunity that I had recently turned down because it just did not seem to be the right fit for me, today I want to SHOUT about an amazing opportunity that this time, was absolutely right!

Over the summer I was contacted by an acquisitions editor representing  Quarto Publishing, with the Walter Foster  group, I must admit that the email really caught me by surprise and I had to read it more than once.
As it turned out, while doing artist research, some of my doodles had caught this editor's attention and I was being contacted to see if I might have interest in collaborating with them on a book project.

Whoa!......you gotta know I sure was interested and couldn't wait to hear more!

She proceeded to fill me in on the concept of the book as well as what they had envisioned for my contribution.  It did not take long to determine that this project certainly did seem to be a perfect fit, and, as you might imagine, I was quite excited to accept the proposal and eagerly got to work creating projects for my section.......(although I really should not use the word “work” as I have been thoroughly enjoying the process)

The Art of Fashion Tangling: 40 prompts, patterns & projects for fashion-forward tangling artists &doodlers is to be 144 pages featuring several artists/authors, each one bringing to it, their own unique, fabulous style.........and I am completely thrilled to be counted among them.

You can read details about the book and its scheduled release date here
 

I snagged this image from the web site.....I LOVE the cover art they chose to go with!

Below you will find links to the web sites of each of the book's contributing artists, you may already be familiar with many of them, ..... just click their names to explore their work. 

Jill Buckley........... you are here :-)






I can hardly wait to see it all come together......so SO excited!!!!

I have just pre-ordered your book, and will now wait (impatiently!) for it! I have been enjoying your blog for awhile now, from an art quilting perspective, but this will bring a whole new dimension and renewed interest I hope, to my dressmaking projects! SO looking forward to the book!
