If I keep this up, you’re going to think I’m working for Amy. I know I post about her often, but I really love her patterns and fabric and now life just got better for all of us. She is launching her first sewing book called, “Amy Butler’s In Stitches” published by Chronicle Books. With 24 simple projects for styling every part of your life, the book features home and personal style projects along with some of Amy’s favorite new bag designs. The book will be available in stores in late August/ early September. I’m very excited about this book launch, and if the contents are anything like the cover, we’re all in for major eye candy with a twist – projects we can use to spruce up our space.
If you missed Amy’s first book, “Found Style” published in 2003, you can pick it up online at Chronicle Books.
In addition to her new sewing book, here is more about what Amy is cooking up for 2007:
SEW IT KIT
In addition to her sewing book, Amy is releasing a “Amy Butler’s Sew It Kit”, also with Chronicle Books. The kit includes 10 projects from the book and 5 brand new projects including fabric and supplies to make one of the new projects. The kit will launch in Spring 2007.
FIRST STATIONERY LINE
The brand new Amy Butler stationery line will also launch in Spring 2007 with Chronicle Giftworks. The collection is called “Sunblooms” and will feature a boxed stationery set, gift journal, and a boxed notecard set. The artwork is from her favorite prints from previous fabric collections.
