Making Stories Magazine strive to feature companies and makers who focus on sustainability, transparency, fairness and equity in their work. They love sharing their stories and hope to inspire and enable crafters to make conscious and informed decisions about the materials they use and the companies they support.
Issue 7 focuses on joy – finding joy in the small and big things in life, in a new discovery or a renewed love, in knowing that even the smallest changes can have a huge impact on sustainability and the planet.
The 12 stunning patterns represent something that makes the designers truly happy. They’re love letters to a favourite technique, stitch pattern, garment or accessory type, shape, or colour – same as the essays we’re so happy to share our love letters to finding joy in stitches and reclaiming what others deem is waste.
Designers featured in this issue are Bérangère Cailliau, Clara Gleiß, Isabel Ale, Jill Thompson Beach, Marianne Munier, Marina Skua, Marina Storm, Marion Bulin, Marthe Forodden, Tania Dejoie, Tiffany Chen and Victoria Gerasimova.
