    Hi Anna, I am new to your blog and very new to Kantha embroidery. I like the look of your new book and would love a signed copy. But I live in Ireland so not sure how it works. Do I pay when I pre-order or when the book is out in August?

    About Kantha, I have longed to try it since I saw my first Kantha quilt online and would dearly love to make one. Is it ok to use 100% cotton or does the fabric needs to be lighter? Sorry about all the questions…I’m just anxious to get started. I am thinking a baby Kantha.

    Happy stitching

    • Hi Sandra,
      Welcome to my blog and to Kantha Embroidery. And thank you for expressing interest in my new book. I just sent off the last edited proof to the editor and will await one final chance to ok the layout before it all goes to the printer.
      I am not sure if you want to wait till the end of August to start your first Kantha. And I don’t think sending an autographed copy will come cheap as shipping to Europe is very expensive. I know, I send things to my family in Germany regularly and can’t get over the high prices Canada Post charges… so my suggestion is to just go ahead and order the book on Amazon. If you then want an autograph and dedication I can send a scanned copy of that when the time comes. You can insert it into the book. I will also email you privately. Look for my email.
      Happy creating, Anna


  2. The reason I so like this kind of artwork is for inspiration in my drawing designs. Tangling has been a fun hobby of mine for a while and the Kantha art designs are lending inspiration for me to get me back to drawing.
