New spinning magazine published

Postby Blackdog » Fri Aug 13, 2010 11:42 am

If anyone's not seen it on Ravelry there's a new magazine just been published called Yarnmaker. The first edition's out now with some useful tips & interesting articles.

I've put this in here rather than in the other magazine section as it's aimed at spinners in particular.

Thanks for the reminder about this, Angela. I was invited to join the group over on Ravelry and accepted, but haven't had a look yet!

That's interesting, I was really hoping it might be in e format, as I'm getting snowed under with paper versions of assorted craft mags and will need to do extreme culling over the winter! lol

My husband's been working at home a fair bit recently (which means no paying of extortionate train fares to and from London - we're about an hour's ride from Liv St - or expensive sandwiches from Pret A Manger etc) and, I think because he's also recently bought himself a second-hand Renault Kangoo van for his shooting/fishing activities, he bought me a year's subscription for Yarnmaker and the first issue arrived yesterday. It's very informative and the articles are interesting as well.

What a smashing husband you've got Christine, mine just sort of grunted when yet another craft magazine arrived in the post :lol:

Purplegem, the lady publishing the magazine decided that at the moment she wants an actual paper magazine to be published, but who knows in the future she may go for e-zine s well

Much as I love e-mags, I find that if I have a mag in hardcopy, I tend to use and read it more. The comp is great, but to me, not as enjoyable to read - it's much nicer to sit down with a cuppa and pick up a mag instead of sitting in front of a screen. Just my choices. When I edit, I read manuscripts hardcopy but edit on the computer...

I got Yarn Maker - it's fabulous isn't it? About time too! It kept me entertained for way longer than any other mag does, and I've just submitted a couple of things :oops: for the next issue and the december one possibly! How exciting! Having just learnt to hand card as well, the fleece scouring article was perfectly timed for me!
