Making Stories Magazine Issue 7

Format

About Issue 7

Theme: Joy

In Issue 7, we’re focusing on joy – finding joy in the small and big things in life, in a new discovery or a renewed love, in knowing that even the smallest changes can have a huge impact on sustainability and the planet.

The 12 stunning patterns our designers created all represent something that makes the designer truly happy. They’re love letters to a favorite technique, stitch pattern, garment or accessory type, shape, or color – same as the essays we’re so happy to share are love letters to finding joy in stitches and reclaiming what others deem is waste.

What a lovely issue

As always the layout and feel of the magazine are second to none. It’s curation of pattern variety (again) not only spans styles but also levels of complexity.
And can we please give a shout out to the effort of bringing not only an add free magazine into the world but also with 'easy read‘ trying to make the patterns as accessible as possible?! Chapeau to Hanna-Lisa, Claire and the entire team, keep on doing what you’re doing!!!

Great choice of beautiful designs

This is the first volume I have bought. It definitely won’t be the last. Lovely patterns with a good range of sizes and degrees of difficulty.
