More details

"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. 

Issue 2 focuses on loving and caring, with all their bright and sparkling facets, but it also shines a light on the small acts of courage and kindness that so many of us strive to integrate into our daily life. We’re proud to have a beautiful lineup of patterns for you as well as a range of absolutely fantastic articles and illustrations. From loving your body to recognizing the overlapping circles of your community, from building a caring community step by step to having conversations on racism and diversity in our community, we’re excited for you to read them, think about them and let them inspire you."

Verena Cohrs and Hana-Lisa Haferkamp
