Hi, I'm Violet

I (used to?) make a zine called Idle Tuesday but I haven't put out an issue in four years. I've been reading a lot of amazing zines lately, though, so the inspiration might be coming back!

Besides reading great zines, I spend my time knitting, sewing, spinning yarn, baking, gardening, reading about food politics, drinking hot beverages, and doing yoga.

I spent the past four years of my life getting a degree in Women's Studies. Now I'm just another semi-angsty, mostly unemployable twenty something with a degree. Life is mostly awesome though; I'm not complaining.

You can read my knitting blog here.

Hi, Violet! I'm not sure what is the best method to reach you, and I couldn't find a more direct way of sending you a message. I'm doing a presentation on zine collections in academic libraries. My presentation partner took a picture of your zine Idle Tuesday issue #2 during a visit to Barnard Library in 2011, and we'd like to use the image of that cover in a slide for the presentation. Please email me at willcn84(at)gmail(dot)com if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you.

Good to hear! I just finished second year of my Bachelor of Arts (Political Science), am making lots of zines, writing music reviews, dreaming about travelling through Russia... If you email me your address, I'll send you my new zines. :) I think/hope they're a littttle more interesting than the ones I made back then...

Hey Violet! How are you? It's been so long since I've seen you around the zine world. I still re-read Idle Tuesday every now and then. :) What have you been up to?
