I wrote an introductory piece to Selvedge's Handmade Holidays section and have posted images of the pages from my online subscribers' edition (I couldn't wait till mid-December for my bookstore to stock its shelves with the print version!).
My piece is a cultural exploration of the DIY movement, with, I hope, a dash of wit. The print below won't be legible, so do take a look for Selvedge on the style racks. It should be arriving in a couple of weeks!
