Talk at MIT / links to shop

Hello again! We will find out today whether we are posting our IPhone video of the MIT talk, or getting a slot to go back and professionally record it into the MIT network. The latter would be wonderful, but if not, of course we will post our own.

Apologies for an odd link error this morning that did not take people to the Shop when they wanted to go see the new stuff. Here is a nice new one:

    Ai yi yi…. I am away for a few days, come back to a humongous vet bill and THE KIT is in the shop… hopefully I’ll be able to order/pay in early November and not miss out? Already have the Pattern Book bundle ordered. It’s all too exciting…

      No rush! We ship in early December. I hope that whoever had the vet bill is feeling better. : )

        Thanks for the reprieve–! As for the patient, she is feeling temporarily better but the diagnosis is lymphoma so our future may be limited. She’s 12 and has been the most wonderful companion. She’s a Saluki. Think Miss Fish in a tall dog suit, in a way. As for the vet bill, my wallet is in bad shape…

    Aargh, l have the pattern book on order and now you tempt me again when I’m waiting for the plumber to come and fix a leak! Will have to see how much that costs before I can commit to any more spending, hope it isn’t a one week offer.

      Smiling! So sorry about the plumber, I know the worry about “what on earth will this cost?”

      The only thing ending soon is the special on the bundle you already have on order, and then of course the bead kits that ship in December are a one-time offer. But plenty of time still for that.

      exactly what is shown (32 glorious colours of Delica, many at the top of the price range) plus a few extra surprises, and a pattern that isn’t out yet.

    If you click on the picture the link works, but the embedded link does not work.

    Hi Kate — I pre-ordered the Pattern Book back at the first call for $40. Now it’s combined with the Coloring Book for $50, but I don’t see the Coloring Book separately. Will that eventually be available separately? No hurry to answer, but I’d like to know eventually. Meanwhile, happy to pre-order Vol III to support this most excellent adventure!

      Actually the Pattern Book Bundle has always been $50. All of the new books are going to be $50 each, no exceptions, except probably the colouring book, which we will decide about when it’s finished. It will be at least $25, and it comes for free with your Pattern Book pre-order.

      Thanks for your message, and OF COURSE for your support of our project.

    Thanks Kate! Ordered the Pattern Book Palette Kit and am so excited!

      Thank you! I am excited too, in fact I just finished writing all of our excellent and absurd colour names on my own set of tubes. This project is the most fun I have ever had.

    What’s the actual link to the shop? That’s a lovely screen shot, but I’d love to do a preorder.

      Imagine my frustration at the same error twice in one morning. Shaking fist at WordPress.
      FIXED again! Thanks much!
