I am taking another trip deep into my bookcase this evening to review another one of my favourite books on the subject of ‘Craftivism‘. It is written by Craftivist Collective founder and author of the new book ‘How To Be A Craftivist‘, Sarah Corbett. I am presently reading her current title and am looking forward to an interview with Sarah once I have finished the book. The book I am reviewing today is called ‘A Little Book of Craftivism‘ and it very literally is a little book, measuring only 6.1″ tall.
When I first unpacked it from the mail, I wasn’t too sure what to expect, but was definitely a little surprised, as this mini-tome offers a brilliant glimpse into the world of Craftivism, even giving you the tools and a variety of different ideas to get started on your own.
Try the simple cross stitch tutorial and stitch your Craftivist message onto recycled fabric swatches or whatever other scrap materials you can find.
The author sits down with a very inspiring pop up Craftivist, who has set herself in a beautiful public park setting, making herself available to answer bystanders questions.
There are even a list of inspiring quotes that the author has included to get your mental juices flowing!
So whether you are looking to start a Craftivist group of your very own with 5 or 6 of your pals or if you are just interested in changing the world solo, this little book is a must read!
