Exciting Announcement

I am thrilled, honored, and proud to announce that I am writing another book. What makes it so special though is that it is going to be a book about swaps and collaborations.

This book brings together the hugely popular medium of fabric and the enthusiasm creative types share for swaps and collaborations. In addition to the author, Chrissie Grace, thirteen contributing artists will guide readers through 22 projects that focus on either swapping (both materials and finished products) or on collaboration (as in a completed journal and an art-quilt wall hanging.) Step-by-step instruction shows the reader how to create each project, then additional inspiration is provided by the finished examples of the contributors.

The talent that will be going into this book is almost more than I can imagine. I have to keep pinching myself! I am so honored to be working with these women...

All of these women have blogs, websites, stores...etc.

Thank you Northlight, and to Tonia, for believing in me again. This is a wonderful opportunity and I am sooooo excited to see this book!

Hi Chrissie! I'd love to trade a pair of earrings for one of your prints! Email me and let me know which pair you like best.
