"A Celebration of Stitching" Press Release



New book benefits efforts to uphold copyright laws

Iola, Wis. - January 18, 2001

A new instructional stitching publication not only teaches crafters about new patterns, but also educates them about the copyright laws surrounding such creations.  "A Celebration of Stitching" is a wonderful compilation of talent and ingenuity, which provides enjoyment along with education.

Thanks to significant donations of time, creativity, energy and services, this new book will benefit the Copyright Protection Fund devoted to raising awareness of the potential threat of copyright violations.

More than 70 international needlecraft designers each submitted a unique project for inclusion in this very special and exciting book.  The designs are colorful and creative, with each designer throwing in his or her flare.  Designers, the publisher, suppliers, trade magazines, organizations, distributors and store owners all did their best to ensure that the majority of the proceeds from the sales of this book will go toward the Copyright Protection Fund.

Everyone involved in the industry realizes the need for this fund.  Too often craft designs are being reproduced and distributed without the author's / artist's consent.  This is considered copyright infringement.

Krause Publications, which donated its editing, designing and paginating skills to the publishing of "A Celebration of Stitching," "is pleased to participate in this worthy endeavor," said Pat Klug, Manager of the Book Division.  "As a publisher, we appreciate the importance of the protection we receive under copyright law... Unless we create under that protection, our books could be easily copied, used, or re-published by others."

"A Celebration of Stitching" can be purchased from major bookstores (ISBN 0-87349-284-6) or directly from the publisher, Krause Publications, Book Department PR01, 700 E. State Street, Iola, WI 54990-0001, for $16.95 plus $3.25 for shipping for the first book and $2 for each additional book.  Residents of the following states please add appropriate sale tax:  Calif., Iowa, Ill., Pa., Tenn., Va., Wash., and Wis.  Contact Krause Publications at (800) 258-0929 or visit us at www.krause.com.
