I don’t know if I have enough crafters reading this blog to do a fabric swap but I’m dying to do one (because I want someone else to pick out some fabric for me, lol) and I know I don’t know enough local people who do crafts to organize one. Would anyone be interested in doing a swap, organized here on the blog, where you would send out a certain number of yards of fabric to someone (we’ll assume no one will be sending uber-cheap fabric but will at least spend a couple dollars per yard or share something fun from their stash) and then get the same in return? Keeping in mind you’d be giving your address to a stranger, so if that bothers you, the swap is probably not for you. If we have five or six people I think that would be enough to do it. If you think you’re interested, post in the comments. If we have enough interest, I’ll organize something official. How many yards do you think you’d like to swap, if you’re interested?
There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.
However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!
Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.
