I received the following in my inbox yesterday:
We have received new release date information related to the order you placed on August 16 2011 (Order# [redacted]). The item(s) listed below will actually ship sooner than we originally expected based on the new release date:
Sarai Mitnick "The Colette Sewing Handbook: Inspired Styles and Classic Techniques for the New Seamstress"
Previous estimated arrival date: November 22 2011 - November 29 2011
New estimated arrival date: November 03 2011 - November 08 2011
Yes!! Do you think the publisher expedited the release date because the pre-orders and reception have been overwhelmingly positive? I sure would like to think so! I can't wait to receive it some time next week!
