World of Geekcraft reviews + Star Wars Craft Book interview!April 13, 2011 at 11:02 am | Posted in books and mags, geek crafts, reviews and interviews, world of geekcraft | 2 Comments
I’m getting really excited for some big updates about my other new book, World of Geekcraft, coming up at the beginning of May, but there are already a few cool things going on I wanted to share. First, HUGE congratulations to my friend and book contributor Bonnie Burton, who wrote an awesome essay on life at Star Wars world HQ for World of Geekcraft, on her fabulous new Star Wars Craft Book!
It’s packed with easy and even kid-friendly Star Wars-inspired crafts to make, from a Bossk Bean Portrait to a Cuddly Bantha, and I got to do a super fun interview with Bonnie about the book and her awesome day job at Lucasfilm over at geekcrafts.com today!
Speaking of the Star Wars Craft Book, I was thrilled that the books were paired up for a great review in the April/May issue of BUST (along with Cooking for Geeks, which I have to get for sure). Thank you so much to BUST for the shout-outs for the Oregon Trail + Mario Magritte cross-stitch patterns, Vintage Sci-Fi Book Cozy, “Marvelous Machine” Steampunk Pendant, and Harry Potter Baby Costume projects!
And Lonny Magazine picked World of Geekcraft for their Lonny Library feature in the April/May issue too, spotlighting the d20 Deluxe Earrings, Trio of Tribbles, and Secret Message Quilt – thank you so much!
It’s been a little dizzying switching back and forth between log cabin quilts and geeky crafts (plus keeping up with whale chalkboard menu planning, Quilts for Quake Survivors, and the Bazaar piece I’m working on for CRAFT:!) so I’ll just say I’m glad I was thinking ahead last year when I made Pearl’s special Easter dress in a nice roomy size that still fits my tall (and almost three-year-old – !) girl!
