Image 1: Me with the master copy of the handbook that I printed out on cheap paper (the colour will be more vibrant in your book!) and taped to my wall and window to triple check every element of the handbook to make sure it's as good as it can be before it arrives in your hands Spring 2024.

Dear patient and lovely Supporters of the Craftivist Collective Handbook


First of all thank you to everyone who replied so empathetically to my vulnerable update I sent in November.

Dear Handbook supporters :) 

I can finally confirm that the Handbook will be in your hands February 2023 and in stores Spring 2023. I know this sounds like such a loooong time to wait for a book.

YAY! We're passed half way = 52% with 661 Supporters! Thank you lovelies. Help us spread the word :) x
