CraftSanity Magazine Issue 4 Is On Sale!

Here it is! The Fall 2011 issue of CraftSanity Magazine is scheduled to hit the streets Sept 21 and I can’t wait to share it with you.  From the apple pie jam on the cover to the other sweet recipes and crafty treats inside, this issue has a little something for everyone who takes a DIY approach to life.

This issue features a whopping 20 projects, patterns and recipes to help you stay toasty warm this fall. I also sprinkled in some handmade stories and Q&As with emerging and established artists, crafters and a couple train-jumping musicians, too.

In this issue you’ll find patterns, recipes and tutorials to:

• Crochet lovely doily blankets, slippers, rugs, pillows and vintage inspired pot holders

• Knit cabled fingerless gloves, capelets for children and adults, tiny chickens and a feather patterned blanket with a story behind it

• Combine your knitting and crocheting skills to make a Granny Hybrid Hat

• Sew an apron and stuffed camel

• Make apple pie jam, apple butter, cinnamon sugar applesauce and try an illustrated recipe for freezer dills

• Whip up homemade soap and lotion and experiment with natural dyeing.

You’ll also get to meet Charlie, the potter, the fourth paper doll in our series, find out why it’s awesome to stitch like your granny.

Issue 4 featured artists, crafters and contributors include:
Lydia Adams
Rose Beerhorst
Dee Bellini
Larissa Brown
Jennifer Casa
• Cydney Colvig
Rebecca Green
Lisa Gutierrez
Anna Hrachovec
Sarah London
Julia Rothman
Amanda Blake Soule
Laura Stantz
Amy Stevenson
• And yours truly.

This is a fun issue, folks, and I hope you really enjoy it. (My proof copy is already tattered from overuse. :)

Print copies of the magazine are slated to ship Sept. 21. The PDF version of the magazine ($5) will be added as an instant download on the left sidebar of this website soon after.

I’m looking to get the magazine into more independent book and craft stores and need your help. So here’s the deal, if you convince your local yarn shop/book store/craft shop to stock CraftSanity Magazine, I’ll send you a personal thank you and a free magazine. To get in on this deal, all you have to do is have the shop owner tell me your name and address when he or she places an order of 10 magazines or more by October 15, 2011.

Thanks so much for your support!

  2. Nu Andrei Chiliman a pornit aceasta criza, ci Crin Antonescu. Nu cred ca Andrei Chiliman ar trebui sa taca si sa inghita doar pentru linitea USL. Nu-i dau jos pe portocalii ca in locul lor sa pun PSD si PC, OK?

  3. The room turned out beautiful. My mom was just telling me great it looked. Thanks for showing us. Good job. Looks like it took some time. She is going to love it. Now you need to take a picture of the boys in their bunk beds.

  4. Denunciarmi per diffamazione???? Per una battuta????? Allora il tuo é un vizio!!! Ok, raccogli 800.000 firme anche contro di me, e mi vedrò costretto a chiedere scusa! Fino ad allora, mi vedrò costretto a citare Bruce Willis. “Una volta qualcuno mi ha detto che questo é un paese libero”…

  5. They are so much nicer than any of the shoes River Island are actually selling right now!! Thank you for sharing. Makes you wonder what other gems we miss because 'the masses' might not want to buy them. Love them!
