i have been working with f+w media (north light craft publishing) and the jim henson company for the past seven months in an effort to birth a knit and crochet book based on the fraggle rock tv series. the jim henson company is on board, and the only bit left to clear is the approval of the sales board at north light. they have asked that i gather up as much information as i can to satisfy what they call “evidence of need”, which means they wanna know just how many people out there want to have a craft book with creations from the fraggle rock show.
the publishers and i are currently trying to hammer out just what will go into this book. will it be just knit and crochet projects, or will we bring in other crafts as well? who among you crafty gods and goddesses would be interested in contributing to such a book, if such a title were expanded to include such things as sewing projects, beading, jewelry making and others?
now, you know and i know that if any of us saw that book on the shelf at borders or in our lys, we’d probably start freaking out, jumping up and down like small children and buy damn near every copy at hand, just in case we wore one out (okee, i know i would…) so if we can pool together here with this handy little poll i’ve created, we can show the publishing board just how badly we crafty people want a book like this on the market!!
so have a look over the poll below, fill it out and be sure to send it to a friend! let’s see just how many people we can get the word out to!
now, my dear friends, post this everywhere. link it in your own blogs, twitters, facebooks, favorite ravelry groups and anywhere else you can think of. i’m considering renting a blimp and throwing out pamphlets. let’s really start this buzz and show the wonderful team at north light publishing that we want a fraggle book!!!
i love you all. thank you for your help with this. i will, of course, keep everyone posted as new events develop with this book. thank you all for being patient with me as we worked our way to this point.
ps. if you can’t seem to get the poll to load, please simply leave a note here in the comments saying if you are excited about this book project or not, and i’ll be sure to include your feedback with the results when they go to the publisher!!
