CONTEMPORARY GEOMETRIC BEADWORK

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

New releases next week

I am thinking of you all, and I so miss our team getting together to work, edit, and bead in person.

We are all in a bit of crisis right now with the pandemic, America is having a contentious election, and this tough time is shredding all feeling beings. But I want you to know that behind the scenes here we are working hard and ready to rock with the first books of our cascade of new releases.

After we get through this next week, I’ll post a couple more public excerpts and patterns, and we on team can start talking about how to get the books printed and shipped during what seems to be an endlessly rising body count.

I know we can get through this. I hope you here in the US are all planning to get out the vote. Be well, please wear masks when you are out, and take care of each other.

We will ride again.

Please remember that all replies to these blog posts in your email post as public comments – don’t worry about your shipping address or anything else at this time – we will do a professional mailing list analysis, postcard send and email check before we print and ship.


And there is NO NEED to pre-order our books, ever – we print tons of them and they will be available everywhere. So don’t worry about that either. Hugs.

    Have you sent out books at this point?

      No – please check the news portion of this site, which has a lot of updates. We are ready to go with two of the four new projects, but unfortunately as the entire US is a hot red zone of COVID we cannot gather as a team, and printing and shipping is a massive job – thousands of books, many tons of weight, many weeks of work by many people. We simply have to wait until this is under control. It is very difficult for us, also difficult for us to survive without the income.

    Hi Kate, Have you sent out the digital copies yet? No pressure, just making sure I get them when they’re sent. Thanks.

    I have been so excited to see your work, and play a small role in your progress. It has been an amazing three years, and I am glad that you are recovered and doing so well.

    For those of us here in the UK would it be possible to have a download copy or would this not work? Just an idea. Love your work and thank you

      Oh, of course, we will sell the digital copies and also provide them free to everyone who pre-ordered or supported the project by contributing work or edits.

        Kate, I don’t want to pressure you but I hardly wait for Vol.3 pattern book. Any chance we will get a digital copy before Christmas.
