Magazine Review: Artist & Makers

  

Hello Knitters and Creators,

I figured since I enjoyed the last issue  so much, I’d share with you the Spring 2015 issue.

Magazine: Artists & Makers, Spring 2015
Publisher: Interweave/F+W 
Format: Digital or Paper
Retail: $9.99

I’m at Starbucks working away today. The part I love about my job is it’s portable. The other part of my job is, being able to review amazing magazines as this.

Let me take you on a virtual tour…

This issue is about going public–engaging in social media, a booth at an art show, or even building a website. And much more!

Meet cool featured artists like Tula Pink. Oh my gosh, I fell in love with her and her story. She’s a colorful textile designer who has stayed true to herself. You will love her too.

Again, more featured artists. I think, for me, these stories drive home the reason I do what I love to do. For example Jonathon Adler takes you through his day. A typical day for him begins with tea and ends with a nice roast chicken.

Perfect, huh?

Pat Sloan states, “I don’t sit and make quilts all day, I run a business most of the time. I’m lucky that I also get to make quilts as part of that.”

This is where it is for me. A business woman meets creative woman. I feel that those lucky enough to call their (craft) a business, should spend time with this magazine. It will make you say, YES! It will give you that warm feeling that makes you feel what you’re doing is the real deal.

This magazine is the perfect pairing with your favorite beverage. In my case, coffee or tea. I will honestly cozy up on the couch and read it from cover to cover.

I would highly recommend you find yourself a copy.

So, I bid you much love knitters and creators. I encourage you to take a peek at this magazine if you are a creator of any kind. You will appreciate the depth of this magazine.

You won’t be sorry. Have I ever steered you wrong?

Knit On!

Deb
