I'm not sure why, but all my friends told me I had to, so I joined Facebook. I think it will be a great way to get the word out about what I'm doing - classes, appearances, etc. The only down-fall is that I can only check it out when I'm at a wifi hot spot. (It takes about 10 minutes for the home page to down-load on my dial-up connection.)
I'm also on Ravelry and it is the same situation - unless I'm at a Wifi place - the Town Hall, a cafe, the library - it is too difficult. My user name there is kristinnicholas (no space). I just uploaded the cover to my new book there if you would like to check it out. I also added the first cover that didn't get chosen.
Ah, technology.... Maybe I will figure it all out one day. As for today, out to the garden.
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
