The Kickstarter project

We are creating a small publishing (miniature really) branch of Pico Accuardi Dyeworks.  PAD Publications is publishing a 2012 Knitters Datebook themed "Created in Oregon".  You can see the front cover on our website.  We are using what we've learned through creating the calendar to publish a book that has been milling around in Deb's head and her notebook for several years.  We are moving forward on the creation of this project, but we really need your support.  We have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds we need to pay a layout artist, a professional photographer and to keep the printing in North America.  Ideally, we want to print right here is Portland.  That definitely costs a lot more, but it supports a local company and keeps the creation footprint small.
This book will happen with or without the Kickstarter funds, but it takes so much stress off of the Dyeworks and the book will be of higher quality.  Plus it will be out by early Spring!!  Remember that with Kickstarter it is all or nothing.  So tell all your friends, relatives and strangers on the street.  lol
And just check out that site in general.  There are some amazing projects out there!  Such creative people out there in the world.  I love that this site exists to give us a chance to find them all.
