My first impression was that it's SO well presented!
It's full of lovely bright colours, and stunning photography. Everything is so nice! The getting started section is brilliantly written, and the cute illustrations just add to the whole feel of the book. The patterns are amazing and I want to make some for myself already! If the rest of the book is as wonderful as the preview, it will be fantastic!
And I'm not just saying all this as a friend and fan of yours - it's legit one of the nicest stitching books I've ever seen (and I have seen MANY) :D

AAHHHH The book is finally live on the site. I could die of pride.
Also the preview has been update to show the final versions of the pages and with even more free patterns than before!

Free US shipping and discounted international shipping until Nov 27th!


Over 150 projects made this year for the book! (not all pictured)
I'm exhausted but thrilled!
.... Also remind me to hire some test stitchers if I ever tackle something like this again. Holy crap.

Thanks so much for all your support guys <3

This was such a huge project to undertake (especially doing all the patterns, stitching, and photography by myself! :shock: ), and I learned so much about the process!
I just hope this shows a demand for more officially licensed craft stuff from the gaming industry. I'd love to see more gaming / pop culture stuff available!

I'm with you there. There's quite a selection of pop culture stuff, but I would dearly love to see more official game stuff. A SEGA book would be an absolute dream to work on for me! (Or a Final Fantasy one, but SquareEnix are notorious for not allowing outside companies/entities to use their IPs unless VERY closely managed, so something like this would probably be out of the question!)
