"The Magic of Linen"

The book "The Magic of Linen" is about to be re-released as a newly updated version in April 2010. I have been in touch with author Linda Heinrich and she generously provided me with all the revisions. Shuswap Guild members are invited to stop by my blog and read the details ahead of placing an order when the time comes.

Also, you can help spread the news about this soon to be released revision by simply telling other weavers that its coming out in April, or send the link to this post to your newsletter editors to share with others. Use this link here:

Many thanks, Susan Harvey
