Look Inside Our Books!

Welcome to STC Craft | Melanie Falick Books Blog

My name is Melanie Falick.  I am the editorial director of STC Craft, which is an imprint of the book publisher Stewart, Tabori & Chang (STC), which is a division of Abrams Books. Our offices are in New York City but I work from home (about 11/2 hours away) a lot of the time. I took this photo of my desk at home long before I started this blog, when I was trying to figure out how to use my new digital camera, so it's a pretty typical example of what it looks like while I'm working. I try to clean it up at the end of each day.




My name is Liana Allday and I'm a senior editor at STC Craft. I’m an avid sewer and knitter (though I don’t shy away from anything that involves scissors, glue, or numbered steps). After a day of editing craft books, I sometimes feel so inspired that I simply have to embark on a new project the second that I get home. And after four years of working on the STC Craft list, well...the output has been prolific (which can be very handy during the holidays!). The photo below was taken at my desk, posing with the stuffed dog from Kata Golda's Hand-Stitched Felt. To learn more about me and follow my crafting adventures, visit my blog ( or my Etsy shop (
