Dear super-supporters of How To Be A Craftivist book, 

Can you believe it's been 3 years since you pledged to make this book a reality?! Because of your early support the book has gone on to sell over 7000 copies worldwide, the paperback edition is selling well (not bad for an unknown author and niche topic!) and more importantly it's inspired, educated and empowered people all over the world of…

Together, let's make hope possible not despair convincing this 2020

Dearest Craftivists and friends 

I'm excited for 2020! The solutions to climate crisis are so wonderful: clean air, more trees popping up all over cities, towns and as many places as possible, valuing our precious planet instead of taking it for granted... 



Timing is everything. It's a vital year to campaign to solve the climate crisis especially for UK based campaigners…

Dear #HowToBeACraftivist Backers :) 

Love is such a short word to say but it is often such a difficult word to practice when it comes to protest...

When we see harm being afflicted onto vulnerable people or our beautiful planet it's easier to hate, dehumanise and blame others for all of the harm we see in structures and systems stopping people and our planet from fulfilling their wonderful…

Happy news on this Blue Monday

Little by little we travel far...

Wow! I can't believe our book is out and about now. It feels so surreal to see it sitting beautifully on bookshelves in stores and it feels even more surreal seeing people read #HowToBeACraftivist in coffee shops (I have sneakily snapped some photos of them doing so just for my private photo collection hehe) or readers sharing their images of the book in their homes around the globe. Isn't it…

#humblebrag alert:

The more our world seems to be divided, the more I think my book is really important to help us see that activism and protest can be beautiful, kind and fair. I'm on the final of three proof edits of my book checking for spelling and grammar etc and each time I read it I genuinely think "ooo I like that bit, did I write that?!" hehee. I've been nervous to say it's a…

To my lovely supporters and friends (that's you!), 


I hope you are well, warm and had a happy Christmas :) To give hope for a happy 2017 when many of us are feeling despair, I thought you might like to read a very short extract from Chapter 9 of the book you are helping to create.
