Hire Me | The Zen of Making

I’m a professional craft writer specializing in technical craft writing and clear instructions, and I provide complete project design and tutorial services for a wide variety of companies, publishers, and publications within the crafting and DIY communities. With an eye for primary colors, bold shapes, and upcycled or repurposed materials, my designs are a hip, urban response to traditional crafting.

In addition to craft writing, I am also an experienced workshop leader, and have designed and run in-booth demonstrations for industry events and trade shows, including the Craft and Hobby Association Conference & Trade Show and World Maker Faire.

To request writing, pattern, or project samples—or to see if I might be a good fit for your company’s products—please email me at haley@thezenofmaking.com. To see examples of my latest work, you can also check out the tutorials section of my blog.

I look forward to working with you!
