Seattle Book Signings!

Here’s my book at Borders. We pulled it out a little so you could see my creepy face peeking out at you.

SEATTLE!!! COME SEE MY CREEPY FACE! Don’t let it down! Make every other city in the world jealous and come out and see IT!! 😉

I’m signing books all weekend in your fair city. Click HERE for more info.

Events:
12/3/10 – Third Place Books (Ravenna), Seattle, 7:00pm – signing, audio/video extravaganza, crochet class (gingerbread man!). This is the only event in Seattle where you’ll get to see my awesome Power Point presentation. Free gift bags while they last! Possible Yummy You pop up shop. Do you guys want me to bring the Yummy You scarves?

12/4/10 & 12/5/10 – Urban Craft Uprising winter show, Seattle – signing books Saturday 12:00pm-1:00pm, Sunday 2:00pm-3:00pm (These are just me sitting at a table signing books and shaking hands and taking pictures with babies. Very low time commitment for you, plus, you can check out the craft show and shop!) Should I bring my fake tattoos to sell at the table?

12/5/10 – Fiber Gallery, Seattle, 4:00pm-6:00pm – crochet class. We’ll be making cupcakes! Free gift bags if I still have them. Gimme a break! They charge you for extra luggage now!

Here are some photos from a few of my past events. We haven’t gotten video of anything yet. We’ll try in Seattle!

Here’s me and Brianna at the Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica. She brought me a drawing. Isn’t she the bestest!!?? I look like I have the demon eye in this picture.

So here’s the version where Brianna has the demon eye. As it turns out, she had better pictures on her blog!

This was an interesting signing. There was some mix-up with the time, and people had just been waiting around waiting for me to arrive. Then, the audio/video presentation was sort of choppy because their projector kept overheating and they tried to cool it down with a sack of frozen fruit. I felt a bit out of my element, since my talk had been based on my power point presentation, but everything worked out. Everyone asked LOTS and lots of questions, and all was good!

Here’s my very first crochet class!

We’re at my favorite local yarn shop, ImagiKnit! I have been shopping here for years, so it was very awesome to me personally to end up signing books here. People, I do not know how to teach, especially crochet!! I had no idea what I was doing, and we had people there of all skill levels, so I kinda didn’t know what to do with myself. Luckily, Katelyn (sp??) from the shop was there to help out!

Here’s a pic of me and Anna, who provided the ImagiKnit picture!

Finally, here is a pic of the audience at my signing at Stories in Echo Park/L.A. I think we are all watching the video!

I had taken a short video clip from the front of the room, but it turned out too dark. I wanted to capture Shrinkle cowering in embarrassment about her music video appearance.

Anywayyyys, I will be in Seattle this weekend and then Portland next weekend! With a booth at the Academy of Science here in SF in between! More info soon!

    Look at that! Tee hee. I’m totally reblogging that Imagiknit pic. It was so fun seeing you in action and I’m glad I got a chance to actually introduce myself, even if I was a bad student and a little late to class (sorry, everything I saw said 4:30!). Haven’t had time to do anything from the book yet, but I plan on doing a mash-up scarf with a little bit of everything in it… I like the thought of giving people’s eyeballs indigestion.
    Good luck with all your book signings! I’m hoping to make it to Academy’s Crafty Nitelife thingy and Renegade, so maybe I’ll see you there.
    Take care and have a safe trip to Seattle!

      Mix-ups in start-times are kind of the trademark of all my signings! Ahah! It was super great meeting you! The Academy thing is weird. I said I’d make a project dependent on my location (as in, “I am flexible”) but never got any info about location. I’m just gonna make it up….
