“Crochet Goodies” book is back in my Etsy shop until I run out again!

Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 5.12.23 PMMy crochet book is back in my Etsy shop while my new supply lasts!  I just received them today. When I hauled in two superheavy boxes, I was like, “What did I buy??! I don’t remember buying anything heavy!?” And I got scared, cuz, shopaholic amnesia brain damage. BUT, then I looked at the return address label, and saw that it was my book distributor!

As some of my newer blog readers may have noticed, my book has been difficult to find, or really expensive. This is due to the fact that my book sold out of its print run and will not be re-printed by my publisher, as they are no longer publishing craft books. My plan is to get the rights back to re-print/re-pub it, but that can take some time. I read on my latest royalty statement that my publisher actually had more books back in stock (this happens when stores return books), so I asked if I could buy them all for you guys and put them on Etsy!

So if you’ve been looking for my book in the U.S., here’s your chance to get it! (Sorry for the long rambly story, but I don’t think I ever blogged about it before, and I thought some of you might want to know what the situation was with the book.)

Also, it’s my plan to start writing Book #2 in November after I’m finished with Renegade Craft Fair, so…. hold on tight!

    I am a huge fan of your work and have been loving working up some of your free patterns… And I think I recently indulged a good bit on your Etsy. I’m so so so happy to have gotten a copy of your book this go, and I can’t wait to a. Make that radish scarf nine times… And b. Buy your next book the day it appears in my local bookstore! I’ll even order it in so they’ll invest in extra copies of it. They’re really good about that! It’s also super neat that you’re relatively local. I’ll say hi if I ever see you at a craft fair!

    It seems we are down to the last book!

    YES! New book! I’m ordering it as soon as it is available on preorder! I love all of your patterns. I personally crochet a little different than other people, so some patterns I’ve gotta change them a ton. Your patterns are so brilliantly simplistic. Nothing overly complicated that I can’t wrap my head around them. Are you putting your existing patterns into the book, or are you making all new patterns? My mother bought your last book because she wanted to make the steak scarf, and she was a little bummed that it wasn’t in the book. But we all love this book. I can’t wait for your next one! I hope I can keep getting more and more of your amazing patterns!

      Hi!! When I have more time in Nov-Dec (depending on orders of course) I will sort out the book, but I think it will be focused home goods, so I will then probably release scarf patterns separately on Etsy, unless people want a whole other book with just scarves. Publishers seemed to feel that a true sequel would seem too boring, but I don’t think they understand my fan base at all!! hehe

      • Bianca says:

        Alrighty then people, nobody order anything so that our beloved Twinkie can get cracking on this here book of her’s, which will be amazing no matter what all she decides to put into it! (just kidding, I know you need to pay the bills and whatnot)

    I have your book and LOVE it! I can’t wait for the next one. Before buying the book, I had not crocheted in 20 years. Your book has gotten me back into it. My daughters are requesting scarves from it and so are their friends!
