There is power in believing in magic. 

Hey, it's Amy and Risa from Missing Witches. We wanted to invite you to celebrate the launch of our second book (what?) New Moon Magic: 13 Anti-Capitalist Tools for Resistance and Re-Enchantment.

Pre-orders and library requests help SO MUCH when trying to get a weird new little book to the people who might love it. Thanks so much to those who have been doing that and letting us know, it's been so emotional getting your messages.

New Moon Magic Witch and Stitch Book Launch!!!

Free Virtual Party October 14th!!

Come virtually hang out with us and our coven, October 14th under the new moon!

Bring whatever project you are currently working on and let's talk about tools of magic, resistance, and re-enchantment. While we're at it, let's weave protection into the web for all those who resist fascism, and who work - in their own unique ways - to re-enchant the world.

This virtual event will be hosted by us, in conversation with the incomparable Christena Cleveland.

"New Moon Magic summons us into the gestalt wholeness amid vast difference that can save us from binaries, from antirelationality, from capitalism, and from the type of death and decay that does not plant seeds and replenish the soil."

- Christena Cleveland, PhD. Author of God Is a Black Woman.

This event is produced in partnership with select indie bookstores around North America, folks we admire and adore and whose communities we are excited to meet and connect with.

We encourage you to follow these amazing bookstores and - if possible - to pre-order New Moon Magic through them and support their work!!!

Special thanks to the wildly inspiring indie bookstores below - not just for carrying our book and inviting their communities to Witch + Stitch with us - but for everything you do to build communities, celebrate diversity, and protect every person's right to tell their story and speak the TRUTH in the face of oppression, marginalization, and violence. This is the most profound magic and we feel so lucky to be linked to you.

A Room of One’s Own is an independent, queer and trans-owned bookstore in Madison, Wisconsin on Ho-Chunk land. In 1975, A Room of One’s Own was first founded in downtown Madison as a feminist bookstore named after Virginia Woolf’s 1929 essay of the same name.

We seek to center marginalized voices, small presses, and be a place for learning and liberation through our events, partnerships, and curated selection of books of all genres. Follow.

Windowseat Books, BC

Windowseat Books is a cozy independent bookstore in the Old City Quarter of Nanaimo, British Columbia. The space is small but the books are mighty! Tired of working corporate, owner Andrée Bizier decided to combine some of her favourite things like reading, adventure and chaos and opened Windowseat Books in August 2018 on a whim. 5 years later, it is still the best journey she has ever undertaken. Reading is cool!! Follow.
