Or rather, photograph/upload/edit/format/save/choose/insert/save in the case of yarn pics, and proof read endlessly in the case of the new magazine.

Yes, you heard correctly – the new magazine is done! It was printed last week and copies are making their way to their warehouses as I write this. The new website is also nearing completion, hence the interminable process of uploading product photographs. But I’m very close to being done and I have a carrot dangling in front of me to urge me towards the finish line: a few yards of cotton lawn fabric so that I may sew a summer dress.

Anyone looking for the new magazine in Canada will most likely find it in the same stores that have carried it in the past. In the US, it might be a little bit more complicated – you see, we recently decided to strike out on our own and to distribute ourselves in the US, as we have done all along in Canada. So, we are starting from scratch – right now, I don’t know which US retailers have been carrying the yarns and magazines, but I will add their listing to my website as I learn who they are.

In any case, I think you’ll like the new mag – As before, you’ll find patterns from Pam Allen, Jared Flood, Laura Grutzeck, Robin Melanson and Carol Sulcoski. We’re also joined this issue by Franklin Habit, Kirsten Kapur, Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Barbara Prime (see the blogroll for links to their websites). Stay tuned for teasers!
