2008 interns + more January 17 2008

anezka media and its related ventures are looking for 2008 spring and summer interns. purls forever at TNNA jan 2008Please see the 2007 intern announcement for the basics and submit your resume accordingly. Our upcoming booklist is still primarily craft and needlearts-focused, so experience with or interest in crafting is a plus. You will be working with our CEO on a number of interesting projects, and we will work with your school's program to provide academic credits. The photo at left is our author Jonelle Raffino's book poster at the National Needlearts Association show in Long Beach, California this past week. Purls Forever is still selling very well, and Jonelle's yarn company, South West Trading Company, remains an inspiration to small businesses everywhere. Readers really love the personal touch her stories give to the patterns! The TNNA show was enlightening in many ways -- Alchemy Yarns has just self-published an amazing book which shows the power of vision in the publishing process, and of staying true to your design sense. What I loved most about Gina's book (the amazing Gina Wilde, the force of nature behind Alchemy Yarns) was the models -- all shapes, sizes and ages! I once heard a statistic about the percentage of knitters who are over size 14, and it was well over 50%. So why use 20-lb 15-year-old models to advertise knitting-related products? Well done, Gina!
