    Email inquiries to: yardenxanthe AT yahoo . com


    What We Want: Illustrations

    We are looking for a wide variety of illustrations. If you are interested in illustrating for us, we'd like to see a sampling of your illustration style.

    Illustrations can be any style or media, but should work well when printed in black and white.

    We are willing to look at your existing illustrations, but are more interested in custom illustrations that compliment our content specifically.



    CROQ Zine is published quarterly.

    About us:

    In this world of blogs, craft books and boutiques agog, we’re not trying to show you what’s new and hip. This zine came about due to a mutual frustration in regards to the current craft resurgence.

    Why isn’t anyone writing about the importance of what we’re doing? Why isn’t there a craft zine written by people who make stuff? And most importantly, we wanted to see a real print and paper zine that we would actually read. With strong online as well as real-life networks, we are entering a new era never before seen.

    By combining the power of the internet with the power of personal creativity, we are proving that things do not have to be mass-produced, that we can be our own stylists, that there is strength in mastering the sewing machine or the knitting needles or the silkscreen.

    We’re about not only recognizing the past legacy and the future possibilities of craft, but about reminding you, the reader, that you’re not alone. Some say that the bubble has already burst, that craft has reached its apex and is destined to plummet. We say bring it on.
