I'm partnering with Pets Alive, the animal shelter where we adopted our beloved Rosie, to organize a drive to help them. You see, they need some sewn items (bedding and "adopt me" bandanas) and what better way to celebrate the book than by helping an organization near and dear to my heart? Starting next Monday, I will be posting tutorials here on how to sew the things they need. I hope you will join in and help out! I will be posting more details on how to participate along with the tutorials.
Next! I'm having a book release party in New York City at The Sewing Studio on September 15th, and I'll be posting an invitation announcement here. I do hope that you will join me for snacks, cocktails, a book signing, and some sewing fun. Tickets will be able to be purchased for a suggested donation amount, the entirety of which will go to Pets Alive. My friends Coats & Clark, Kollabora, and The Sewing Studio are generously hosting! If you think you may be able to make it, please save the date (and start planning your frock now!).
Lastly, if you've made it through this post, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. The book would not exist without your support and enthusiasm for my work. It's so wonderful being able to share all this with you, my dear readers.
More to come!
