Episode #47: Deborah Balmuth, Publisher at Storey

April 20th, 2015 · Comments

I'm talking with Deborah Balmuth, the publisher at Storey. We recorded this podcast at Craftcation 2015 in Ventura, California. In this conversation we talk about what makes a great how-to book and how Storey selects authors, including what Deborah is looking for in a book proposal. We also talk about how craft publishing can create something that sets it apart from all of the free content available online now and we discuss the future of publishing, including an in-depth discussion on ebooks and digital marketing. And, of course, I ask Deborah to recommend great stuff she's enjoying right now.

Episode #46: Rebecca Ringquist

April 6th, 2015 · Comments

We're talking about embroidery as an art form with my guest, Rebecca Ringquist. Rebecca is a Brooklyn-based visual artist and designer. Approaching the technique of embroidery as a way of drawing, Rebecca has taught hundreds of people new ways of making marks on fabric with thread. Her popular Dropcloth samplers have designs pre-printed on them ready for you to hoop and stitch.

Rebecca has nine workshops on CreativeBug and her new book, Rebecca Ringquist's Embroidery Workshop: A Bend the Rules Primer, will be published by STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books in April 2015.
