STOCKPORT, England, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The crafts revolution has swept the UK over the past few years, turning many a home into a handmade haven. From the thrifty ideas of Kirstie Allsopp to The Great British Sewing Bee, there's never been a bigger buzz about getting creative.
There's so much more to crafts than crocheted doilies and A-line skirts though, as new launch Crafty Magazine aims to prove. Covering the very best in contemporary handmade design, Crafty says "ta-ra" to twee and waves hello to gorgeous, practical and exciting ideas for the home, gifts and everyday living.
As Editor Sarah Adie explains, "Crafty Magazine is the go-to mag for the new breed of makers - people who haven't necessarily had craft skills passed down from family members, but who know how much fun making can be and thoroughly embrace the handmade lifestyle and all its trimmings.
"We aim to inspire everyone, whether they're male or female (because craft isn't just for girls, you know!) in all areas of their lives, whether it's using their sewing machine for something other than making clothes and bags, taking good business decisions to help them make money from their crafts or simply just finding the best places to go for a bite to eat and a spot of vintage shopping. Despite its name, Crafty isn't just about crafts - it's about creativity, inspiration and, above all, sparking your imagination."
Issue 1 of Crafty Magazine is on sale now, priced at £4.99, and comes with free calico fabric and enticingly simple ideas for putting it to good use. Crafty Magazine is available through WHSmith, Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Waitrose, Hobbycraft and all good newsagents. The title will also be exported to the USA, Canada, Australia and mainland Europe.
