Ok, folks, the premiere issue of CraftSanity magazine is set to ship out Tuesday Dec. 7 (revised date)and I can’t wait for you to see it! The magazine is 8″x8″ and contains 44 pages featuring 15 projects ranging from knitting and crochet to sewing, weaving, paper craft and embroidery. And because I LOVE to interview people, it also includes handmade stories and Q&A interviews. You’ll also find recipes, gift tags, and an adorable paper doll with a penchant for quilting, reviews and a gift guide, too.
Here’s a peek inside…
I made this quarterly magazine for you with the help of many wonderfully talented contributors. Inside Issue 1, you’ll find work by the following artists and crafters: Cathy Carron, Lindy Graff, Anna Hrachovec, Sarah London, Alessandra Hayden, Rebecca Green, Alyssa Thomas, Cydney Colvig, Linda Tieu, Steven Rainey and a generous knitter named Jake. You’ll also find Diane Morgan’s delicious recipe for homemade graham crackers and get inspired when knitter Debbie Bliss gives us a peek inside her sketchbook. I included a few of my own projects, including and a mod hexagon apron tutorial for you to enjoy, too.
This magazine project was a labor of love that would not have been possible without the pagination and tech support of my husband, Jeff. We worked on the magazine late at night at our kitchen table and it felt like things had come full circle for us. We met at our college newspaper and have worked for the same news publications ever since. This was a fun project to tackle together while our daughters were sleeping.
