an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators

A project for the Pre-Orders!

We are happy to say that we are marching ever closer to our press date, still shooting for August. It’s fairly amazing here, with Dustin back and all of the stunning beadwork in from the Beads Of Colour crew, Debi, Chris and Barb. Kyle Cassidy continues to shoot our close-ups, and is doing the final design for the cover. Magazine articles and interviews are being set up, our Resources list is bulging. And there are just a very few Book Bead Kits left in both Jean’s and Kate’s shops- I think we each have two left to sell.

This is the project that we are publishing in our publicity advance for the book, known in the trade as a “Blad”.  It will contain full instructions for this project (and a companion ring or pendant) and have sneak peeks at many of the other projects in the book, some of which no one has seen. We’ve definitely got some surprises up our sleeves!

Emails with the project and the peeks will go out as soon as it’s ready- looks like late next week. (Lots of people are working at once and it all has to be put together….) We’ll put up a blog entry here and on our Facebook page (and on each of our personal blogs as well) so that everyone will know when it goes out, and at that time, when you see it up in one of those places, you can let us know if you didn’t receive your copy.
