From idea to book--5 tips for getting started

Writing a crafts book to share your skills with others is an exciting and rewarding experience. If you've ever considered doing this, here are some points to consider:

  • Are your plans original? Patterns and plans are usually copyrighted; don't violate this.
  • Are necessary tools and materials readily available? If not, can you adapt your plans?
  • What skill level is required for your projects? Be clear about your intended audience.
  • Are your instructions easy to follow? Have someone else try out your plans.
  • Do you have any writing experience? Writing an article is a good way to start.
