    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.

    Making Stories mag issue 7

    I LOVED this magazine!!! It had so many interesting articles! I especially liked the one written by the spinners in Alberta who started their own business from sheep to yarn! I’m from Ontario so that was neat!!

    Fanlight Sweater

    I absolutely love this sweater. The colours are perfect (it gets so many compliments!) the yarn is perfect - lightweight but warm, and I thoroughly enjoyed making it. Thank you!
