2  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Call for submissions for new SNB Book of Men's patterns! on: October 16, 2006 04:03:10 PM
Hey everyone-

I'm working on another book, and this one's going to be full of knit and crochet projects for men (and boys). I've already got a bunch of fab stuff together, but I still need a few more submissions. I'm looking for socks, gloves, hats, scarves, sweaters, bags, and anything else you can think of. If you've got something you'd like to contribute, please send an email to stitchnbitch@bust.com by November 3rd (or before) You may send photos of completed items, or sketches of items you're proposing along with a photo of a (large) swatch knit or crocheted in the manner that you'd like to do the project. YOu don't have to try and get an entire sweater done by November 3rd, so don't sweat it. If I am able to include your project, you will be paid for your pattern and provided with all the yarn you need to work up a sample for the book.

I'm looking for stuff that men will actually wear or use, so if you're female and you've got an idea, run it past a person of the male persuasion and get their input before sending it off. I want to put an end to the curse of the boyfriend sweater, with a book full of boy-tested, boy-approved projects. Male stitchers are particuarly invited to contribute!

Questions? Feel free to email me: stitchnbitch@bust.com.

Thanks everyone!

Attention happy hookers:

Just wanted to start a quick l'il topic to let you know that I've posted an errata page that you can print out and stick in your book:


and also, that I'll be travelling all around this great land at the end of April and May, and would love to meet any and all of you -- if you can make it to one of my book signings, please be sure to sport some of the fine projects I've been seeing posted here! I'll be travelling with a bagload of projects from the book,  so you can see 'em--and touch 'em, and squeeze 'em-- in real life.

I'm gonna be stopping in NYC ('natch), Washington DC, Raleigh NC, Chapel Hill NC, Tampa Fl, Miami FL, Chicago IL, Omaha NE, Denver CO, Sacramento CA, Berkeley CA, San Francisco CA, Portland OR, and Seattle WA. To see where I'm gonna be when, check the calendar on my site (Midwest/West Coast dates will be added soon, so check back in a week or so):


I now return you to your regularly scheduled crafting....

6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Voulez Vous Crochet Avec Moi? Call for submissions for next SnB book on: February 12, 2005 11:46:34 AM
Hi there -

Sorry to bum-rush this thread, but I did get Leah's permission first.

I'm writing to tell you about my latest Stitch 'n Bitch book project, and to invite you to contribute to it. The subject of this next book is going to be crochet. I know blasphemy!!but where I'm from, if you're a needleworker you're a needleworker, and there's no reason not to add more mad skillz to your repertoire. Besides, crochet has it's benefits: It's much easier to do on the beach (I always pick up a few crochet projects over the summer); if you're already a knitter, some of your skills can easily translate over to crochet (especially if you knit left-handed); and crocheting is just plain better at certain things than knitting is. This book will be the perfect crochet primer for both total newbies as well as those with developed knitting skills, and will include special "for knitters only" tips to help you get through the rough spots. Not only that, even if you've never felt the urge to get hooking before, the projects in this book will be so cool,  they'll make you want to give it a try.

Speaking of cool projects, that's where you come in: I'm looking for contributions of the funnest, most awesome, hippest crochet projects, using any and all crochet methods (the book will cover it all), from the simple to the more challenging. The projects can range from clothing to accessories to household items to jewelry to baby things and pet items. Whether you're a closet or out-in-the-open crocheter, I'd love you to contribute to the book. Even first-time designers are invited to contribute. If you're familiar with my two knitting books, you know the kinds of things I'm looking for.

But get crackin', because the deadline is March 7th!

To contribute, please send the following:

1) If you have a completed project, please send a few good-quality photos of the item, along with a detailed description of it. Please email your photos and description to me at stitchnbitch@bust.com, and be sure to include your full name, email addresses, daytime and evening phone numbers, and mailing address. You can also mail these to me here: Debbie Stoller, BUST Magazine, 78 Fifth Ave, 5th floor, New York, NY 10011.


2) If you have an idea for a project but have not yet completed it, that's okay too. Just send me a very clear, detailed sketch  of your idea, along with a  photo of a swatch made in the yarns and stitch pattern you plan to use. This swatch should be rather large: 10" x 10" would be the best, if it's possible (for some types of projects that might not be possible.) Email that to me at stitchnbitch@bust.com, and be sure to include your full name, email addresses, daytime and evening phone numbers, and mailing address. You can also mail these to me here: Debbie Stoller, BUST Magazine, 78 Fifth Ave, 5th floor, New York, NY 10011.

If your project is accepted, you will be provided with the yarn you need to produce a sample, which will be photographed for the book and kept by me (to take on tour, 'natch!). You will also be paid for your submission, and will receive a free copy of the book once it is completed.

If you have any questions about the process, feel free to email me. Thanks in advance, everyone!
