While we might admit a small bias towards books (and can you blame us?), we also love to try new projects, techniques and ideas from a range of different sources. We often share patterns from our books with the craft magazine publishers and have a lot of friends in the craft mag world. Here’s a round up of some of our favourite magazines for crafters (these magazines are based in the UK but often available further afield with digital subscriptions)...
Full of lovely ideas for all sorts of crafters, and often including free craft kits, new subscriber gifts and beautiful pull-out papers; if you’re looking for a craft mag that’s always ahead of the trend, you can’t go wrong with Mollie Makes.
Simply Crochet is a great magazine offering a range of patterns from the super cute to the seriously stylish. We love the crochet inspiration and technical advice that helps with our crochet questions.
There are loads of reasons why we love Simply Sewing—with patterns for seasonal wardrobes, sewing techniques and handy home-sewn items—but as we were writing this blog post, we saw the beautiful sundress in the latest issue and now we love it more than ever!
With great gifts for new subscribers and fantastic sewing patterns—from lovely outfits for adults and children to quirky accessories and items for the home—this is a brilliant monthly mag for sewers of all levels.
We love this magazine for its inspiring range of crafts and things to do. From card making and paper craft to jewellery making, baking and your usual knitting, crochet and sewing crafts; there’s a project in here no matter what mood you’re in.
We love the creative homemade cards and pretty paper crafting ideas in the magazine! It’s a great magazine for anyone who loves to get crafty for friends’ birthdays, anniversaries, thank you notes, invites... in fact, there’s always an occasion for card making!
