Early reviews of Inspiration Kantha on

Thank you to those who have submitted unsolicited reviews to the author directly:

Susan G., Moosomin, SK: I have been enjoying your book and wanted to congratulate you again on such a successful and inspirational book.  It is truly lovely and so full of information.  I was drawn to it immediately because of the photographs but as I have spent time with it I realize that it is truly a gem of instructions and more.  I’m so looking forward to putting my hand to the work and trying out the techniques. It will be wonderful to have this book as a reminder of you and our coming together at AQC.  I wish you much success with the sales of this amazing work.  You can be as proud of this masterpiece as you should be of the pieces you have created in your journey with Kantha.  What an inspiration you are to us.   FYI – I have also posted a review on Amazon to let others know the great value of your book.  Thank you for signing mine it makes it even more special.

Nelly K, Kingston, ON: I just want to let you know that the ‘Inspiration Kantha’ book arrived in good shape, thanks to your excellent packing.  I browsed all the way through the pages and it’s wonderful!  The photography is awesome!  Thanks so much for sending it early with a lovely signed message.

Maggie B. D., Toronto, ON: I just received my copy of “Inspiration Kantha ” tonight. Congratulations – it looks fabulous! First impression was I loved the size and shape of it. Of course I flipped through immediately so…thanks for giving me such a beautiful spread!  The photo inserts look super. – I read “Inspiration Kantha” from cover to cover. Your writing is flowing and instructive and the directions for projects beautifully simple with super illustrations. The paper is lovely too.

    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


  3. 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.
