CraftSanity Magazine is Back! Issue 10 on sale now



With this quilted teepee I’m announcing my return to magazine publishing. My sincere apologies to all those I’ve kept waiting. The magazine is at the printer now and in it I explain why I took a long and unintended hiatus from producing it. I’ll explain more here soon, but for now let me tell you about Issue 10.

CraftSanity Magazine is back and bigger and better than ever. With a new larger format, the redesigned magazine includes bigger photos and even more inspiring content.

This issue contains feature stories about several artists and crafters including: Illustrator Yulia Brodskaya (the artist who designed the 2016 U.S. Love stamp), Maya Pagan Donenfeld, author of “Hope, Make, Heal” and Clara Parkes, author of “Knitlandia.”

This amusing story is about a self-involved selfie addict named Dazzle Dazzle Fox written by my daughter Abby, the CraftSanity Vice President of Fun, and illustrated by our friend Jonathan D. Lopez, the CraftSanity Multimedia Editor.

How to buy the magazine
There will be very limited number of print copies available in my Etsy Shop. The new rectangular print edition will retail for $16.  (*** The $1 off preorder sale ends Feb. 15, 2016. Magazines will ship by Feb. 19.***)

* I encourage you to call these local retailers to reserve your copy.

It’s taken a lot to get to this post. So much that there were moments when I wasn’t sure I could pull it off.  But thanks to the cool people mentioned above as well as my husband, daughters and my mom, I made it. Thanks so much for your patience and support. It means the world to me and I really hope you like this issue. : )
