Way to go, Ebbie! “The Big Little Book of Fabric Die Cutting Tips” is here!
Here are a bunch of things going on today:
- crazy fog out my window
- preparations for the big Houston quilt show this weekend
- my friend Ebony is releasing a book!
You know Ebony already as a frequent guest on Quilty the show and as our resident longarm expert in Quilty magazine. Here’s her purty face in case you need reminding:
Here’s what Ebony’s book is called: The Big Little Book of Fabric Die Cutting Tips and here’s why you should get a copy: it is, as my sister Rebecca would say, “totes amaze.” I’ll be a little more specific.
The book is for die-cutting enthusiasts OR people who are curious about the whole die-cutting “thing” and are just getting their feet wet or exploring it for the first time. The book isn’t a project book; it’s really more of a reference — an invaluable one, I’d wager, from someone who has been passionate about the die-cutting method for quiltmaking for a long time. Ebony preaches the die-cutting Way with full conviction — I got a personal lesson at her very own studio! It was pretty amazing, I gotta say.
The book goes through how to choose a die cutter, the various mats and add-ons and things, dies of course, how to prep your fabric, etc., and there are tons of tips and suggestions for other resources, too. It’s a bad mamma-jamma, this one.
Ebony, my friend, best of luck. It’s so neat that you have a real, live book!! I wish you the best and I do encourage folks to check out “The Big Little Book of Fabric Die Cutting Tips” if they have any interest at all in this very cool development of the die-cutting method within the quilt industry.
