Whoo whooo! My first sewing book, Learn to Sew with Lauren, is officially out into the big real world today!
I know a few of you have already spotted it out in Waterstones and a few pre-orders have reached their lovely new owners already... but as it's the official release day that I was given all those months ago I wanted to mark the occasion!
It’s a whole bundle of emotions when a moment like this comes. I still can't read the acknowledgements page of the book without getting a lump in my throat because I'm so grateful to all my family and friends for their support. It really is impossible to do something like this without good people around you. It’s given a me big flash back to how much has happened in the last year! I’m so excited that it’s now an actual real thing that people will buy and have in their homes and sewing rooms.
I have one of those ‘One line a day’ journals where one page represents a day with a space to write one line a day for 5 years. It’s really cool and a great way to remind yourself of what you were doing in the past. I actually started the journal 2 years ago to the day, the 1st September 2012. You won’t believe what I was doing 2 years ago today!!…….I went to the final audition for the Sewing Bee in London! It just goes to show you how much can change in a relatively short period of time!
If you are one of the lovely pre-orderers you will have had a special delivery on Saturday or maybe today….last week I was busy packing and wrapping the first batch of books to go out.
If you fancy getting a signed copy you can still order one from the shop (click here) (or non-signed from Amazon). We still have a few spaces left on the make and take workshops happening during the launch party this Saturday. (Spaces are FREE when you order from us! yay!).
As always, wishing you happy sewing and I hope you find lots of inspiration in my book!
