CraftSanity Magazine Update, Ad Rates, Giveaway Winner Announcement, Michigan Fiber Festival Update

Hello! It’s been very busy around the CraftSanity headquarters as we enjoy the last bit of summer before school starts. It seems the summers fly by faster each year.

I’ve been burning the midnight oil working very hard on the fall issue of CraftSanity Magazine due out next month I’m really enjoying the projects, recipes and stories we’re rounding up for you.

I still have some advertising space available, so let me know if you’re interested in placing an ad. I’m offering a 10 percent discount to everyone who purchases an ad in both the fall and winter issues of the magazine. Here are the rates (before the discount):

Business card size ads: $37.50

Quarter page ads: $75

Half page ads: $150

Full page ads: $300

Back cover ads ads: $400.

Things are moving along fast, so please contact me by Aug. 19, if you’d like to snag a last-minute ad space. Thanks so much for your support!

Giveaway Update: Julie is the randomly selected winner of a copy of Brett Bara’s new book, “Sewing in a Straight Line.” She posted this comment about her first sewing experience: “My first sewing machine project was a circle skirt for a belly dancing class I was taking. Can you imagine cutting out a giant circle of fabric more than half the length of your body? The sewing went on forever, and was most decidedly NOT in a straight line, and barely followed the curve I’d cut into the fabrick When I’d finished, I tried it on and it was longer on one side than the rest. Luckily, I was resourceful and put the too-long side over my bum, which was bountiful enough to take up the extra length so that the skirt was actuall the same length all the way around when I was actually wearing it. HA!”

Congrats, Julie! Please send me your mailing address so we can get you your prize.

If you missed my podcast interview with Brett, be sure to check it out here.

Oh, and we’re still waiting to hear back from the iTunes support staff about getting the podcast page restored. It disappeared and we’re not sure what happened. All the podcast episodes are still available through this website and we’re hoping to have the iTunes mystery solved soon. Thanks for your patience.

I’ll be posting a fun musical treat for you soon. In the meantime, I invite you to check out my column previewing The Michigan Fiber Festival which is this week at the Allegan County Fair Grounds.

Now I’m going to sneak off into the woods to do some writing and turn the yarn at the top of this post (dyed by Yarn Hollow) into something warm and wonderful. Have a great day!

Yay, so excited! Thanks again, so much–and sorry for all the typos in my entry comment. Zoinks! I still love that story, though! ;)

Julie’s story is so cute! I have experienced sewing skirt during my high school years and it was fun. Your magazine seems to be interesting, too. I would have loved to avail of your ad space but the price is quite high when converted to our currency. Is your magazine exclusive for you local residents only?
