Judy, I think they are new patterns, this is what it says on amazon:
It includes 5 beautiful projects (1 blouse, 3 dresses and 1 skirton) with tissue paper patterns so readers can learn to sew AND creative a gorgeous project.
You can look inside the book on UK amazon and see the first few pages, looking at the contents page each chapter finishes with a pattern, they are called:
I am very excited and have indeed preordered a copy, thanks Cathe for putting me onto it!
I had figured it was new patterns as that would be quite a let down if it were existing patterns previously purchased!
I know that if you wanted a signed copy Sarai will be selling those from her store.
Either way with or without a signature, I'm all over it!
Wordpress. Definitely. I use it for several blogs and have been a big fan of it for years. Limitations on wordpress.com can usually be overcome by paying more money (like hosting video for example). Personally, I love it visually - find the dashboard relatively simple to find my way around and find the updates to the blogging software useful. Plus Wordpress offers good support - people actually answer your questions in a timely fashion. I would say - thumbs up to Wordpress.
Also - that new book look yum. I've pinned it!
I'm sold, I'll look into wordpress and maybe even consider going the pay route.
Thanks everyone, this is so helpful!
