In the meantime here is Foundation Myth, written and read by editor, Cherry Potts
Your next chance to catch us live is in Manchester! Thursday 27th June 7pm at Blackwells. free but ticketed.
There will be cake. Of course. I’m think of a little forest of gingerbread buildings stuck into something chocolately…
Just before that, editors Rosamund, Cherry and Kam will be doing a panel discussion at Greenwich Book Festival Room QA065 Queen Anne Court Greenwich University Old Naval College Greenwich SE10 9LS at 10am on Saturday 15th June FREE but you will need a ticket.

It is a little known fact that one of the reasons that Arachne Press is called ‘Arachne’ is because editor in Chief and owner Cherry (that’s me) is a spinner and weaver. Not about to challenge Athene to a weave-off however!
For £40 or more, a hand-stitched designed-to-your-preference (up to a point, limited by my skill!) book/mini-ipad/kindle pouch, or something of similar dimensions. (this stuff is erroneously known as tapestry, it really isn’t, I’ve made real woven tapestries, MUCH harder. This is tent stitch.) There is only ONE on offer.
My designs tend towards the geometric, but not necessarily symmetric, and will be limited to the colour palette shown on the left! previous design below to give you an idea. This takes a while as I only do it when also watching TV, so if you want it for someone’s birthday, allow a few months!
