Making Stories Magazine No. 3
Making Stories Magazine is a German magazine (but published in English) that aims to showcase companies and makers who centre their work around sustainability, transparency, fairness and equity, tell their stories, educate and inspire crafters and enable them to make informed decisions.
Making Stories shares scenes that tell not just one story, knitwear that is shown on more than one body type, pieces that are being worn as we’d wear them in our everyday life. It publishes pieces from a diverse range of voices, is interested in exploring and learning from different perspectives and strengthening our community.
Issue 3 of Making Stories Magazine explores the topic of Growth. As we come into Spring , the season of new growth, the patterns in this issue reflect this source of inspiration both in their stitch patterns and their construction. All designs have been chosen for their versatility during this transitional season when layering is key. The articles in the magazine also look at the subject of Growth from different angles: a conversation with fibre business owners who share their views on business growth and sustainability; Alina Jordan explores social media and how its growth has changed her life as a knitter; and Ani Lee opens up about growing to appreciate her body
Patterns by: A L Leong, Claire Walls, Sari Nordlund, Stephanie Earp, Nataliya Shinelshchikova, Valentina Cosciani, Vanessa Pelissa et Making Stories.
