final reward added to Solstice Shorts Crowdfund

This one is to make Mandy Macdonald laugh, if she remembers a conversation earlier in the year.

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!

So on the theme of textiles, the final reward on offer for our Crowd fund (finishing 4pm on TUESDAY – thats only 48 hours left!)

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!
