Making Stories 1
We instantly fell for the aesthetics and ethos of Making Stories Magazine, with this inaugural issue featuring 9 covetable knits made up in carefully considered yarns and portrayed through stunning photography, topped up with written and illustrated reflections to keep a knitter’s mind engaged between stitches.
The Making Stories team is based in Berlin, where this 136-page ad free magazine is also printed onto 100% recycled paper – it’s got such a pleasing handle, may we add! Each printed issue comes with a Ravelry download code so that you can keep a digital copy too.
From the editors:
“With Making Stories Magazine, we strive to feature companies and makers who focus on sustainability, transparency, fairness and equity in their work. We love telling their stories and hope to inspire and enable crafters to make conscious and informed decisions about the materials they use and companies they support.
In Issue 1, you’ll find thoughtful accessories and versatile garments that are designed with change in mind – change in seasons, in the way we work and live, in our choice of materials. We’re proud to be able to share the fantastic work of writers and visual artists with you with pieces that range from disability and knitting to body image, from queering the knitting status quo to what change means for our lives.”
