Schiffer publishing Co. called me on Friday. They are sending a preview copy of Linda Heinrich's new book, due to be released at the end of the month -- Linen. This is a second edition of her previously sold out -- The Magic of Linen (1992) with updates on what is happening in the world today.
Linda is a Master Weaver, whose Master thesis focused on Linen.
We will have her new book in time for the Linen Festival on Saturday, August 7th. And will have preorder forms available. Cost is $50 plus applic. taxes at the Linen Festival. Shipping in Canada is $15 for this large format hard cover book. Shipping is free if you order it at the Linen Festival.
I'm really excited about this. I've been waiting for this book for over a year. I've read the first book several times -- getting it from the public library. Its full of very interesting facts about the history of linen, as well as helpful tips about spinning, dyeing and weaving with this ancient fiber.
