Just had a play on the blurb site, very interesting option
I especially like that I can prepare everything on adobe indesign and then upload the finished PDF files...
What I don't like is that the ebooks are for iPad, iPhone and iPod only.
Well, it'll be a little while till we get to the 'publishing' stage, so that I'll have some time to play with various options and decide what to do to suit most of us :)

I am also fine with a pdf file that we could just print on our own. I am working on my pinwheel quilt which is made from my left-over HSTs .

Thanks, Lotti - good for you :D
I've heard that one can self-publish through Lulu..........
My personal favourite is http://www.blurb.com it looked more idiot proof than Lulu, when I was checking them out a couple of years ago. But that doesn't take into account a) latest updates & b) the idiot :wink:

It all depends on what Lotti feels she wants to commit to, and how many there are, but I would be happy with a collection of pdf files to print and add to the original book.

By the way I am looking at them for the Reels & Recipes book with Romira.

Dear SoTTTs & Strippers

it has been suggested that we make a compilation of the SoTTT & Stripper Quilts that do/did not make it into the official book.

i've decided to volunteer for making this compilation - at the moment we're kicking ideas back and forth...
below copies of the entries that started it.

please DO NOT YET send orders

- when and how to send entries
- how to order
- how the compilation will be provided
will be posted RIGHT HERE once we know more about how the Compilation will actually be be done.

to keep this thread from clogging up the Order SoTTT & Stripper Book thread - i've already started this thread here now ....
very very very important:
NOTHING WILL BE PUBLISHED BEFORE THE ACTUAL & PROPER - SoTTT & Stripper Book IS AVAILABLE !


yes - i will contact carol and ask for her input - however - at the moment she has a lot to do with the actual book - and this is after all - an afterthought - so will have to take second place

thank you all for your input, for your patience and for being YOU and a great part of US! :P :lol: :P

just a thought could some blank pages be put into the backof the Book?

They might be able to add one or two without affecting the cost. but the thing is, lots of extra pages will probably cost more, regardless of whether they have printing on or not.
Personally I think if we could get together all the ones that missed the deadline and put them into something like a pdf that everyone who wants a copy could then download & print out for themselves to put into the back of the book.

Rosemary, that's a great idea! Any volunteers???

I can collect and 'bundle' the pictures
I could then do two sets of .pdf's., low resolution and high resolution depending on how, people want to have them printed...
Postage from Switzerland is insanely expensive so that I'm not a good person to organize an exchange, but as this would mainly be distributed by e-mail or online transfer server, I herewith volunteer...
Figure it's best to do the final layout once we know what the book looks like / have the book, so that the add-on would have a similar feel, unless I'm stepping on toes and copyrights here....
What kind of timing are we looking at folks?
Obviously we want to give as many persons as possible a chance to add theirs, but also don't really want to make everyone wait five years or whatnot...
Any Input?
I'm off to vacation (yessssssss to Ireland,and later the intl quilt festival in galway) on Saturday, so don't know what kind of Internet connections we'll have on the road, so if you don't hear from me in the next couple of weeks, I havn't disappeared, or lost interest, or whatever...
I shall return...
Hopefully with pictures and stories and many happy memories... :)
:)

To start with the obvious person to talk to would be CarolM about what layout she is planning etc.
Just think out aloud here, but since these are add-ons what about the idea of bi-monthly editions (or whatever frequency you think fit) up to whatever date you decide (6 months-1 year after the publishing of the official book?). This would have the advantage of being smaller files generally, and hopefully we might 'sweep up' more members with the multiple deadlines. Just be sure to decide on when you want the final deadline to be!
