Hello Crafters!
It’s time to introduce a new chapter of CRAFT. I’ve had a wonderful time being the editor of CRAFT – it’s been such a thrill working every day with amazing crafters who consistently bring fresh awe-inspiring ways of creating to the world of crafting. However, I’m now going to finish a book project I started 2 years ago, so today is my last day at CRAFT. It’s been the utmost pleasure connecting with all of you in the craft community.
Incredible Moon Embroidery by Rachel Hobson
The exciting news is that CRAFT writer Rachel Hobson will be taking over, starting today! Anyone who has followed CRAFT should know Rachel, who has blogged thousands of posts for us over the last 3 ½ years. If there were one image from our archives that could best exemplify Rachel, the above embroidered moon would be in the top 5, since it shows both her astonishing talent as a crafter as well as her love of space and science. Without further ado, I’ll let Rachel take it from here…

Thanks so much, Carla! The CRAFT team has been lucky to have you, and it’s been a true pleasure working with you! I’m honored to be taking the helm here at CRAFT. I’ve been a CRAFT devotee for years, and still vividly remember that excited feeling I had the first time one of my Average Jane Crafter projects was featured here on the blog. Joining the CRAFT team almost four years ago was a thrill, and I relish the opportunity to showcase the work of so many great indie crafters and to be part of such a vibrant and dynamic community.

I learn something new every day, and adore the folks I meet online and in person. I’m passionate about the ways in which people can connect through the crafting process. I’m excited to be heading up such an awesome team of writers, artists and video gurus. Truly, the CRAFT team is top notch, covering all craft genres, skill levels, and subject matter.
I spend way too much time reading hundreds of craft blogs, digging in to various social media and adding ideas to my “Must Try” craft list. In my spare time, I’m a tap dancing, hand embroidery-obsessed space geek with two kids, a husband, a cat and a one-eyed dog, fixing up our atomic ranch home in suburban Houston, Texas.
Looking forward to many more CRAFT adventures,
