A Schoolroom Alphabet, our NEW book, is here!

We're so happy to introduce our brand new book A Schoolroom Alphabet! Each of the 12 projects in the book is inspired by an 18th century alphabet handkerchief from "the landmark collection of Betty Ring." The projects are as practical as they are pretty: emblems for backpacks and purses, a needlework tool-tote, an e-reader cover and a blue bird pencil case are just a few of the alphabet-themed designs. The original handkerchief, titled "Inside of A School," features a bustling classroom scene surrounded by an alphabet border, complete with images to accompany every letter. Maegan's large sampler pays tribute to this humble piece from the past. We'll post more images from the book, as well as stories about its creation soon. But, we wanted to get the news out so you can let your local shop owners know to look for A Schoolroom Alphabet at market in Nashville. The book should be posted soon at www.pickledishstore.com/. Thanks so much for sharing our enthusiasm. --Maegan & Vickie
