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.
The designers featured in this publication include: Adrienne Larsen, Armenuhi Khachatryan, Cheryl Eaton, Jennifer Barrett, Joanna Ignatius, Lauren Wallis, Linolimon, Maddie Harvey and Nataliya Sinelshchikova.
