Wow- after over a year of hard work and lots and lots of beer the book is a done deal and ready to hit the shelves . I couldn't be more stoked and can't wait to celebrate with the friends who helped make it happen. Laura and Rob Sams did an amazing job with the photography and the folks at Andrews McMeel hit the ball out of the park with awesome design, layout, editing and the million other things it takes to make a book happen. Matt Newell came up with the patterns and a great website. I think it's fair to say we've blazed a new trail in craft publications, a unique path that leads from the fridge to the craft room, along the way we sampled some kick ass beer. So come join me in toasting the best in sustainable crafting the one that "involves you to open a beer" as my daughter might say. We're partying down at The Beer Bunker on May 18th 2pm. 7918 Stark St. in Portland. I'll be bringing some snacks and a whole lot of craft supplies and there will be a limited supply of tasting trays too.
