I've got no objections.  :)

As Kathryn points out, there are lots of historical pattern books with 
titles that contain "new".  In some cases among the historical 
needlework books it's especially amusing to see that label on works that 
contain a large proportion of recycled material - either from the 
publisher's own earlier works, printed from blocks obtained in trade, or 
flat out duplicated from some other printer's products.

In this case, "new" is a perfectly justified and appropriate 
appellation.  Right up there with "long awaited" and "celebrated."

Go for it, Kathryn!
