Miss Cavendish in Selvedge Magazine

I'm delighted to share an early peek at my article in the November/December issue of Selvedge, the London-based textiles magazine.


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!

I'm totally fascinated by this article; frustrated I can't read it right now. You wouldn't share a pdf?

I did my MA thesis partly on the Arts and Crafts Movement in the UK and how the fine artist grappled with the commodification (read: art market) of his work at the turn of the 20th c.(an era that valued the mass-produced over the high-minded toils of the artist, artisan, crafter. . .)

Amazing, Miss Cavendish!
