MAKING STORIES MAGAZINE ISSUE 8 :: CAMPFIRE PRE-ORDER

£25.00

The launch date for the new issue of Making Stories Magazine is 1 September 2022. Any items included in the same order will be all shipped in one parcel after the launch date. 

Theme: Campfire

In this Fall & Winter issue, we’re inviting you to come sit and knit with us while getting lost watching the flames of our campfire dance. 13 modern, wearable knitwear designs will keep us cozy and warm, not only around the fire, but also in our everyday adventures. 

Texture, cables, colorwork or soothing stockinette – no matter which one speaks to you at the moment, you’ll find something you love in these pages. Speaking of love: The love for this planet and carefully caring for it while we’re out in nature is the thread that weaves through this issue’s essays and illustration.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT MAKING STORIES MAGAZINE?

We’re (to our knowledge) the only ad-free knitting magazine on the market today. We believe in preserving our independence when it comes to deciding who we feature and work with through not accepting any ads for this magazine.  

We’re printing on 100% recycled paper, one of the few that’s certified not only with the EU Ecolabel and the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, but also with the Blauer Engel certificate. 

We’re keeping production and fulfilment as local as possible, working with Umweltdruck Berlin as our printer, the first printer to be certified with Blauer Engel. We have our own fulfilment space here in Berlin and work with The Woolly Thistle as our fulfilment partner in the US.

Who’s behind Making Stories Magazine?

Making Stories GmbH is an independent knitwear design publisher, owned by Hanna Lisa Haferkamp who runs it together with her small, kick-ass team. 

We believe in choosing to use resources and capacities, be they human, environmental, social or financial, in a way that can be sustained in the long run. We believe in being aware of and actively reflecting on all parts of our (work) process and communicating them openly and honestly. We believe in treating all living beings involved in our work fairly, respectfully and lovingly and in caring about and for their physical and mental well-being. We believe in not discriminating against anyone based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, health, physical appearance, economic situation, education or any other factor, being mindful of what that means for their lives and their stories and working towards a world where everyone is free to create the life they wish to live.
