Handbound: Your Thursday Dose of Chronicle Craft


We know it’s not going to be much of a surprise to you, especially if you’ve been reading this blog, but we have loads of interests besides publishing here at Chronicle Books. We’re a building full of photographers, painters, athletes, writers, musicians, foodies, designers, and crafters. We especially love crafting and spend a lot of time talking about our favorite craft blogs, projects we’re making, and new talented artists we read about. We’ve got a lot to share with you, and we know you probably have a lot to tell us. So we’re devoting every Thursday to showcase our talented craft authors, offer downloadable patterns, give away cool stuff, share new sites we discover, and hopefully hear from you about what you’re working on and what you want to see more of. So stay tuned, spread the word, and be sure to come back every Thursday to see what’s new in our crafty world.

PS: That fantastic book image up there is from Night Jar Books. Be sure to check out their Etsy page where you can buy their beautiful handmade books.

If You’re Local, You’re Lucky.

We’re happy to be in the heart of the craft movement here in San Francisco. Talented local designer and fiber artist, Leslie of Feisty Elle, created a Google Map of all her favorite local crafty spots, from boutiques that sell handmade wares to yarn and art supply stores to craft museums. So cool! Email her at Leslie at feistyelle dot com if you want to add to her list. And be sure to check out Leslie’s beautiful selection of accessories available for sale on her website. Leslie is also a member of the San Francisco Craft Mafia, who are hosting the Mafia Made DIY Trunk show this Sunday in The Hall of Flowers at Golden Gate Park. For vendors and other details on the show head on over to the SF Craft Mafia’s website. If we don’t see you there we’ll see you here next Thursday!
