Making Stories Magazine No. 6 - Skyward
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.
In Issue 6 we are looking skyward, to see the beauty above and to take a breath of fresh air.
The 12 knitting patterns in this issue are inspired by everything that we see when we take our eyes off the ground - the sky, the clouds, buildings, trees, textures and the light.
Patterns by: Fiona Alice, Makenzie Alvarez, Elena Solier Jansa, Valentina Cosciani, Emily Joy Rickard, Susan Schädler, Ayano Tanaka, Kjerstin Rovetta, Ksenia Naidyon, Julia Exner and Audrey Borrego
What's so special about it?
Making Stories is a completely ad-free knitting magazine. Making Stories believes in preserving its independence when it comes to deciding who it features and works with by not accepting any ads for this magazine.
Making Stories is printed on 100% recycled paper, one of the few that is certified not only with the EU Ecolabel and the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, but also with the Blauer Engel cerfificate.
Production and fulfilment is kept as local as possible - the magazine is printed by Druckhaus Berlin-Mitte, the first printer to be certified with the Blauer Engel, and with Urbanmail as its shipping partner, both located in Berlin, home of Making Stories.
