I will post free patterns, and so check-in often for the newest craft. Feel free to submit your own patterns or how-to tutorials on your crafty creations.

Germasidle is also interesting and more generally punk-rock music focused, and be sure to vistit my online shops for gifts and handmade creations. I also write online with the bulk of my writing being how-to articles, many of them with lots of resources, links and crafty instructions.

I will provide links to great crafting patterns, blogs, websites and books, magazines and online 'zines. I hope to inspire some to begin crafting and to spread the word of the fantastid art and work that is being made out there.
