Have Your Crafty Questions Answered, and Be Entered to Win the Craft Book of Your Choice!

March is National Craft Month, and in celebration of this honored month, we have decided to dedicate The Short Storey, our montly newsletter, to crafts for March as well. Oftentimes we feature an author in a Q&A-style interview — with the questions asked by me or another Storeyite. For this craft issue we want to mix it up a bit and have our crafty readers (that’s you!) ask the questions.

Bonus: Submitting a question will get you entered to win a Storey craft book of your choice! Browse our catalog to select your book.

Do you have a fixation with fiber arts? A passion for nature printing? A love for lace making? A serious addiction to sewing? A crush on crafts?

Even the most dedicated and practiced crafters sometimes get stumped; are unable to complete their project; or repeatedly encounter the same errors but cannot pinpoint where the problem started.

If you are a crafter and have a specific question on your craft of choice, our expert authors can answer it for you. Ask anything related to crafting. You can also specify which author you would like to answer your question. We will review the questions and call upon our authors. Not all of the questions will be featured in the newsletter, but we will try to answer them all here, on the InsideStorey blog. If, however, your question is selected for our newsletter Q&A, we will send you a craft book of your choice from the Storey library!

How to submit your question and be entered to win:
Post your question in the comment section below or e-mail it to You can enter as many questions as you like. All entries must be submitted by Monday, February 25, 2013, by 9:00 a.m. EST to be qualified for the giveaway and to be featured in the newsletter.

Thank you in advance, crafters — we look forward to receiving your questions!

I sewed when I was younger (I loved 8th grade Home Ec!), but I got a new sewing machine a couple of years ago, and I just can't seem to get used to it. I've watched the DVD included a few times and tried, but I seem to presser foot & bobbin problems. Every now and then I get excited and pull it out, only to return it to the closet in disgust. Have I "lost it", or do I just have a lemon machine?
