Books in transit!

Our lovely books are on the road again; several impressive snowstorms have impeded the progress of our shipment, one even closing the bindery for two days, while they received and dug out of a couple of feet of snow. We expect to receive them in just a day or two, and of course will begin shipping immediately. Updates will abound both on this page, and our Facebook page, which we hope you will join us on by giving us a “Like” and adding us to your News Feed. It should be quite a party there as books begin arriving.

In the meantime, please enjoy a peek at the developing Underskirts of Kate’s Pagoda Bangle.

    Hi there, any ideas when the beaders over the pond can expect their books which are so eagerly awaited? 🙂

      Karin, I’m afraid all I can do is tell you that they are shipping to you this week- beyond that, Customs is out of my hands. Some things come swiftly, some take weeks. I’ll hope they all fly through Customs and into your hands in short order.

    Luscious! Geometric bracelets are wonderful works of art! I’m thinking of buying some of those plexiglas cases used to house sports memorabilia and displaying my CGB pieces when not wearing them.
