Bonus for Pre-Orders of the Vintage Sewing Machines Coloring Book - Ships in April

The Vintage Sewing Machines Coloring Book will ship by mid-April, and pre-orders receive a bonus!

The coloring book has a heavy, high-gloss, UV-protected cover. On three sides of this cover are 8x11" full-color illustrations just as James drew and colored them for our own wall hangings. A maximum of 200 pre-orders will be signed with a personalized message from James.

When you order the book from our Etsy site, you will have the opportunity to let us know if you would like James to say anything in particular when he signs his illustration- in case you are ordering the coloring book as a gift for someone.

Even though this is technically a "pre-order," there will not be a long wait! Coloring books will ship in April. If you haven't yet read the facts regarding receiving mail and packages amid the corona virus emergency, please read this article from Our intention in releasing the book during this crisis is to offer a relaxing pastime to our friends in the VSM community, as coloring is believed to lower stress and anxiety in adults. We color ourselves in our home, and we find it to be a pleasant creative diversion as a family.

It's more than a coloring book!

When we asked for suggestions regarding which machines to illustrate for the book, we asked for any stories or special connections related to the machines. In a 7-page introduction, James discusses industry history and shares the stories of many of the machine owners.

Designed for quality results!

This book is produced by a manufacturer specializing in coloring books (and they are taking careful measures as well regarding the virus emergency). The illustrated pages are one-sided on quality 70# uncoated paper, great for shading and blending as you color. By being one-sided, this means you can remove any page for hanging - and they look great framed. We have some framed in our home.

James's whimsical but detailed style combined with your creative coloring will make a beautiful image.
