Must Read Book List for Green Crafters


Inspiration abounds on the internet these days, but I still find great comfort in picking up a real book. I have loaded up the shelves in my craft room with some great reads for the beginning and green crafter. Here are my top recommendations.

Crafty Reuse

Sewing and Fashion

Printing

  • Printing By Hand by Lena Corwin – great book on the basics of printing by hand including tools and techniques
  • Lotta Prints by Lotta Jansdotter – inspiring projects and patterns from an icon in hand printing

Business

  • Craft Inc. by Meg Mateo Ilasco – a must read for every crafter who plans to sell their goods for hobby or for a living
