    Yes, we do print sustainably.

    We print on 100% recycled paper – and we are super proud to have found one that lets our photos and patterns shine!

    They're crisp and true to their original colors. The secret? Our awesome printer, Königsdruck Berlin (local to us, yay!)

    They work with an LED-offset printing machine that dries the ink right after it's applied to the paper. That way, it can't sink in and the colors stay as glowy and beautiful as possible.

    The best part though? The machine is completely climate-neutral.

    We're the ones who care.

    We started Making Stories because we deeply believe in the power of two things: sustainability and knitting.

    Stitching sustainability into every aspect of life (and business) can not only help us save this beautiful planet, but also lead a more fulfilling life.

    That being said, we believe sustainability looks different for everyone. Finding what exactly it means for you and making decisions that reflect that in your daily life is incredibly empowering.

    We're here to help you with that in your favorite pastime, knitting.

    Making Stories 2

    Es sind schöne Modelle, dass Titelmodell wollte ich eigentlich stricken, aber ich merke, die Anleitung ist mir zu kompliziert. Ich habe durchaus schon nach englischen Anleitungen gestrickt, aber das ist mir echt zu hoch. Schade. Aber Heron Island kann ich wohl bewältigen, wegen des großen Ausschnittes aber in einem Sommergarn...... Herzliche Grüße Sylvia Schnick

    A fabulous issue

    I could knit each pattern of this issue! The magazine is filled with six beautiful sweaters and cozy accessories. One of the best issues in my opinion.
