an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
CGB Calendars all shipped February 3rd. Anyone who ordered one, and doesn’t have it yet: email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ve only got a few left over, and I want to be sure about exactly how few. 🙂
The CGB Pattern Library will be the next thing to publish; it will be free to all and will contain all of the basic patterns from both books, along with many other specific patterns contributed by beaders worldwide and lots and lots of additional image galleries. I don’t have an exact opening date, but it won’t be long now- my guess is that it will open by the end of March. This will be exciting- and new patterns will be released- lots of them.
Following that, I’ll send CGB Volume II for edit and to the press– this should all be done by the end of April. While it’s being printed and bound, I’ll finalize the commercial digital version, with a goal of having everything ready to ship and download by the end of May.
And that will be that! And we will bead up a global storm with the new beaders that stream in to join us, and the web sites will glitter, and I’ll sit in the garden, making shapes, being happy.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. Keep an eye out here for news- and if you haven’t, subscribe to this blog. The Follow box is in the right sidebar, near the top.
