Name: Natalie Zee-Drieu

Gig(s): Editor-in-Chief of CRAFTzine.com/Founder of Fashion Blog, Coquette

Excerpt from Craft Corps (Chapter 14):

VH: The CRAFT website is always really supportive of the craft community, posting multiple links per day to designers’ work. In the future, what role do you see the site having in perpetuating that community further?

NZD: I would hope to see more of a diologue with our readers. I’d like our community to reach that next level where we post cool projects but also hear what readers want, and giveit to them. Tools like blogs, Facebook, and Twitter make that attainable.
VH: How do you think new media has affected crafting for everyday crafters?
NZD: I wish it had been available back then when I was learning all this stuff. Right now, it’s wonderful to go online, research how to do one little stitch, and get a video that teaches you something as you work on a project. Or, if you have a question, Ravelry is a great place to post it to a forum. Community is out there; when you’re home by yourself and don’t really know how to do something, you can quickly learn to do it on the Web.

    I only got into crafts recently. Thought it was all granny stuff but Etsy showed me that there’s some really cool stuff. Yippee

    The online crafting community really is great. With different websites and message boards I have been able to learn how to knit almost anything from cables to lace. I’m on my way to check out craftzine.com now!

    This magazine is one of the most missed things ever! It was exciting to see what crazy stuff (that I never knew I wanted to try) would be in each issue. The website it still terrific and Natalie is always very responsive when you email her.
