And I have the honor to receive 1 of the first Dutch copies!
A few weeks ago I received an email from Maaike, the designer of this book, whether I wanted to come to here intimate book release party. Well ofcourse I want to! I did not need time to think about the choise, I would love to come!
Small and Cozy
Maaike invited us to the table and we got offered coffee and tea… with special cake from Den Bosch. They call it a ‘Bosche Bol’ (jumjum!) Maaike told us about the reason for presenting this book in this intimate and small way: “She wanted to do something different.”
Her other two books addressed her a lot, but this time she wanted it more intimate: so that she could really speak personal to the invited people. Perhaps this also made the atmosphere so relaxed and cozy! With about 12 women we sat at a table! The beautiful crockery and the big cake ‘Bosche bol’… It was a cozy tea wreath, one of which you can only dream of as a child!
Maaike told us about the process; how her book came true and shows the beautiful crocheted pieces: we can watch them all live, feel, ask questions! We got the book and got a beautiful hook needle and could choose 6 beautiful spheres of Durable yarn in the color we wanted. I went for 4 pink and 2 beige 🙂
It was really a big enjoyable party! Several people I’ve been following @Instagram, I could meet in real life. And sometimes the world turned out to be very small: two did not even live so far away from me!
At 11:30 AM we had a light lunch with cute salads in glasses and a delicious sandwich! After lunch, I was able to thank Maaike personally and gave her a small gift: I hooked a bag and stopped in chocolate and bought a bunch of roses.
In the hook book, Maaike scratched another sweet message. With a lot of fun I look back on this lovely morning! Although I had my camera with me, I did not dare to handle that big thing. I’m sorry now: I had to make a lot more pictures..! Who knows, I get more of these chances: I’ll just take it out of my bag! 🙂
With a well-filled bag full of beautiful stuff I went home! And now, of course, I started crocheting from the book, with the yarn and the hooked needle 😉
Have you become excited now and do you want this book too? You can buy the book yourself at the website from Maaike
Do you also want to purchase the book? If you do not own any of the little ones: There are also plenty of nice presents 🙂
The next week I will put a new pattern online, this in collaboration with the Kreafabriek!
