Note: Fiber Art Calls for Entry is including a snippet of the original post. You will be directed to the Handmade Librarian website for the complete post with full details.

I’m hard at work on an exciting new book project that combines my two loves–libraries and craft. And I’d like to invite library-loving crafters and makers to be part of it!
Tentatively entitled Handmade at the Library, the book will be published by STC Craft | Melanie Falick Books. It is a crafter’s library companion, and in it I will share tips on how you can make the most of libraries’ unique and historic collections–both in person and online–in your search for information and inspiration in your own handmade creations.

In addition, crafters and designers will provide original ideas and instructions for making beautiful, modern projects based on inspiring, vintage library collections. Each project will highlight the rich potential that awaits within research libraries’ unique collections. And that’s where where you come in. I’m looking for talented working crafters interested in creating project tutorials for Handmade at the Library
