A celebration of the great--and growing--crafting community by everyone's favorite crafty grrrl: the fabulous VICKIE HOWELL

 

Bestselling author and stitchery dynamo Vickie Howell puts down her needles to pay tribute to her fellow crafters! Her extraordinary new collection features interviews with 30 successful professional craftspeople as well as profiles of a diverse group of approximately 60 amateurs. And every interview includes a photo of the subject, plus a peek at their work or their studio.

This project--a true labor of love--also documents how social networking sites, groups like Stitch 'n' Bitch, and alternative sales outlets such as Etsy have helped create a close community of crafters passionate about their work and each other.
