Follow Your Bunny:
The Creative Life from A to Q
If you’re coming to Stitches West, you already know the joy of creating beautiful and useful things by hand. But is it possible to overdo it? What if your creative well runs dry? What if you find yourself up to your elbows in yarn, utterly bereft of the urge to cast on?
Author, designer, and long-time Stitches instructor Franklin Habit invites you to take a lavishly illustrated, rollicking backstage tour of the creative process, drawing upon on the coffee-and-chocolate-soaked wisdom and tears of folks whose lives depend upon the needle and the hook, the spindle and the loom. Gaze upon wonders seldom exhibited for public view, from the Couch of Despair to the Bathtub of Revelation to the terrifying Deadline That Just Wouldn’t Die.
Franklin’s stories will help and inspire you to keep your own creativity fresh and vibrant; to throw off the shackles of negativity; and to expand your horizons as a maker without fear or hesitation.
Be forewarned, though…
making pretty things isn’t always pretty.
