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.
Readers will enjoy the usual fun selection of patterns to knit, crochet and sew mixed in with tasty recipes, including one illustrated by Rebecca Green. 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.”
Issue 10 also features a crocheted rainbow mitts pattern by Alessandra Hayden and stories and patterns from emerging designers, Teresa Wiers and Peggy Patterson, as well as columns and tutorials by yours truly.
A fun, new feature is a work of illustrated fiction that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. 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.
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. : )
