The Carnival of Green Crafts

Crafting A Green World is thrilled to announce the new Carnival of Green Crafts!

The Carnival of Green Crafts is a twice monthly online celebration of all things eco and crafty. Whether it’s a full-fledged tutorial or your personal musings, photos of projects in progress or completed, great thrift store finds that are destined for a craft project, or a love letter to your favorite environmentally friendly craft supplies, we want it! We hope that this Carnival is a place to show off, inspire, rant, rave, learn, and support each other as we find ways to create beautiful things while protecting the Earth.

If you’re not familiar with blog carnivals, here’s the scoop. A blog carnival is basically a traveling event, a regular series of posts that collect links to recently posted content on the carnival’s theme. Most carnivals move from blog to blog, with each edition hosted by a different blog. Crafting A Green World is kicking off the Carnival of Green Crafts and we’re giving it a home base, but we invite the green crafting community to jump in and make this carnival what you want it to be.

Submit Your Posts to the Carnival of Green Crafts

Our goal for the Carnival of Green Crafts is to make it a true community event and project, so we invite everyone to submit your own work or suggest great posts you’ve seen elsewhere. Since not all green crafting content online is published on blogs, we welcome submissions from online zines, forums, and communities as well. Whether you have an online mega-zine or a tiny blog, if it’s about green crafting, please feel free to submit! Part of the fun of a carnival is discovering new voices, so don’t be shy.

Recently published blog posts, forum posts and discussions, and other online articles are accepted on a rolling basis. If it doesn’t make the deadline for one edition, it will be forwarded to the next carnival’s host. To submit your own post for the Carnival of Green Crafts, please use the Blog Carnival submission form so we know we have permission to include it. (Depending on your browser, you may have scroll way down to see the form.) To recommend someone else’s post, please email greencraftscarnival (at) so we can touch base with the author and make sure it’s ok to include their post.

Skye Kilaen began sewing at an early age and eco-rabble-rousing shortly after that. Many years later, someone finally told her that there are books about how to make quilts. Life was never the same. In fact, she spent more on her sewing machine than her car. Bringing her green and crafty passions back together, Skye is now happily discovering ways to create beautiful and useful objects using thrifted and sustainable materials. No, that's not just an excuse to visit Goodwill more often. Honest.
