Centenary Stitches – How to Get It!

Centenary Stitches printing 001
As some of you know, we have had some problems with the printing of Centenary Stitches in the USA, and also some problems with Amazon giving out false information.

I THINK we have now got it all settled, and this is what we are doing.

The proof printed in the US was not nearly as good as the UK printing (done by Book Printing UK). Discussion with the US printer showed that if we were to have a comparable paper in the US it would cost far, far too much. It has turned out to be cheaper to get the books printed in the UK and ship them in bulk to the US.

The content will be the same, but the paper will be thinner and the printing of the photos darker and flatter. (The quality of the printing does not affect the readability of the pattern instructions.)
