Local hipster Sarah E. Miller was dead-set on starting a new kind of Seattle arts magazine when she realized, to her horror, that she did not have the right haircut and should therefore not even try.

But the founder of The Needling, who she had already interviewed for a Q & A profile, demanded the publication move forward.

“I don’t give a shit if you’ve never shaved a tribal symbol on part of your head, tried Bettie Page bangs or died your hair blue before,” said The Needling’s founder and editor-in-chief. “The precious words I’ve dictated must be published, scribe!”
