First of all, a huge, huge, thank you to all of you who have purchased a copy of my book so far. The response has been truly humbling! By the end of the day yesterday, Machine Quilting With Style shot to #1 in Patchwork on Amazon and is now ranked the number 1 new release! How exciting is that?? It’s currently hovering between #2-#4 in these three categories: patchwork, quilting, and sewing. I couldn’t ask for a better first-day release!
Several of you have emailed your concern that the book is temporarily out of stock on Amazon. I asked my publisher about that and it just means they Amazon hasn’t received the next shipment of books, but they are on their way. Depending on how long it will take Amazon to receive its shipment and get them into their warehouses, customers are getting shipping update notifications that are going into October. On one hand that is super exciting for me, because that translates to good sales, but on another, that can be frustrating for you to have to wait!
But not to worry, if you want to get the book quicker than that, you can order directly from Martingale. All orders placed through the publisher’s website get a free ecopy to download instantly, so that’s pretty spiffy. Also, you can order a signed copy directly from me. I should be getting my stock of books any day now and will get those out to you as soon as I can! As a little unannounced bonus, I’ll be including one of my Christa Quilts pin buttons with every signed copy I sell.
Thanks again for your support – writing this book has been a dream come true for me and it thrills me to no end when I see you all making your versions of my designs. 🙂

Congratulations Christa! I am not surprised to hear your book is jumping up to the number one spot. You have always been a wonderful teacher and your quilting is beautiful. So happy for your success!
Congrats on your wonderful book!
Congratulations! It is a fantastic achievement.
Hey Christa -Congratulations on your immediate success on you book! I pre-ordered your book on Amazon, I can’t remember if it was from your online store or not. How can I tell? I am having it sent to San Diego while I am there on vacation from Sept 22-Oct 5th. The timing is great because it saves me shipping since I live in Canada. Any advise on what I should do?

Thanks so much! If you ordered it from Amazon, they will ship it to you. Since you ordered early, you should have no problem getting it. 🙂
Congratulations Christa. I’m so happy for you.
