I won’t believe it until I see it, but today is the big day when my first newspaper craft column appears in print. Since most who read this blog and listen to the CraftSanity podcast don’t live in West Michigan and won’t be able to look for the column in the Home & Garden section of The Grand Rapids Press, I’m going to direct you over to my newspaper blog “Running with Needles,” so you can read the column and download a fun pattern for a fabric headband designed by MaryBeth Raible, owner of Island Girl Limited. Check out Raible’s story to learn about her passion for embellishing jeans and making handbags, headbands, key fobs and other fabulous goods.
