There are a lot of books in the world. More are written every day. Some of them actually find publishers and reach real bookstores, both brick and mortar and virtual. quite a few of these books have something to do with crafts.
From instructional manuals on knitting, crochet, woodwork, quilting, and making odd things out of pop top tabs to tips on starting your own crafting business, to Life Lessons Learned while doing origami, to novels, to histories, to books of cartoons and funny sayings about one craft or another, there always seems to be room for one more book on the shelves.
So I’m curious: if you were going to write a crafting-related book, what sort would it be? Would it be aimed at adults or children? Do you think it would hit the New York Times best seller list?
If I were to write a crafting-related book, it would probably be a novel for adults. Most likely it would follow the life of a lacemaker sometime in history. Possibly in the early days of machine laces, where there’s the handy conflict of technology vs individual work, and the opportunity to discuss the up and down sides of both. I’d like to have a special edition available with a special bobbin designed for the purpose and basic instructions for bobbin lacemaking included.
What? I’m a dreamer?
