Taunton Press has signed a distribution agreement with newly-formed crafts publisher Lucky Spool Media. The deal, which went into effect on December 15, calls for Taunton to provide sales, marketing, and distribution for Lucky Spool's books.
“Taunton is widely respected for its high quality illustrated books and their values and goals are right in line with my own,” says Lucky Spool founder and publisher Susanne Woods. “We will be proud to have Lucky Spool craft books side-by-side with Taunton’s own titles in major retail chains as well as in local book and fabric shops.”
Founded in 2013 by Woods, who has worked at craft publishers Interweave and Stash Books, Lucky Spool plans to publish its first two titles in summer 2014, eventually releasing approximately 10 titles annually.
