13 Days to Go

Just 13 days to go in our Pozible fundraiser. Yesterday we reached the 30% mark of our fundraising efforts.  Someone pointed out to me that not everyone might understand the Pozible fundraising  platform. It operates in much the same way as Kickstarter but is more directed at creatives and fundraising for  things like self publishing, events, exhibition costs even residencies. The idea is that you create rewards to which people pledge and only if your target is reached is money collected. If the target is not reached it's bad luck  for the person seeking the funds. You can also look on the Pozible website to find some answers to questions you may have.

So with this in mind we have really tried to give good value with our rewards and have looked at it as a kind of pre-ordering of the book, but it is also actually helping us to create the book because without you there will be no book.

So a lot of the work we are doing at present is in the hope that the project will be funded and if it isn't well at least we have tried to pursue our dream in creating an art  house style book about quilts.

One of the chapters in the book is devoted to  journals and how I use my journals.

Also you can read some of my travel thoughts in the newest edition of Through Our Hands magazine which is available for free- just click on the image. There is some interesting articles by some very interesting artists from around the world. Enjoy!
