From their website: Submit a text of any genre and length through our Submittable form, accompanied by a creative pitch letter detailing how you see it coming to life as a textile object. Methods proposed to create the object can include sewing, knitting, crocheting, weaving, cross-stitching screen-printing and more! If we accept your submission, we’ll consult with you on the creative vision for the object and provide the labor to bring it to life as a limited edition artist’s book series. Sew, what are you waiting for?
