I adored the first issue of DIY City Mag, who didn't! It was a wonderful look at the DIY scene in New York, with tips on where to shop, new designers and great project ideas. Like most I immediately book marked the page and am eagerly awaiting the next issue on New Orleans.
I also joined the DIY City Guides too (the adjoining crafter's community), as I saw so much opportunity to connect with other artists and crafters and useful share tips and information.
I started posting away, about craft books and places I had been to that could be of interest... mostly from posts I had created here;
Craft Book Guide
Craft, Fabric and Haberdasheries
Shows, Fairs and Markets
When I received an email out of the blue... 'We would like to invite you to become an Editorial Board Member for the magazine and contribute to it's content.' ... Thud (the sound of me hitting the floor - that seems to be happening to me a lot lately!) ... Must stop doing that Sara and check for bruises! Needless to say I am absolutely delighted and have accepted their offer. I hope to start in April after my exhibition (Read about it here at my 'Diary of a Textile Crafter'), so keep your eyes peeled for links to my articles and features...
