It's here and it's gorgeous! 

Find it here on Etsy:       Wild About Yarn Magazine Issue 1
                                                                            

The idea for a magazine dedicated to yarn has been fermenting in my mind for over a year now.  I can’t tell you how happy I am to finally see it hot off the press.   Each issue will have interviews with FOUR artists/makers/creators, a recipe in the section Kitchen Bites, a tutorial or two, a page for  Inspiring Instagrammers, tips, articles on yarn and related subjects and much more.



I hope you will embrace this new venture with me.   This is an independently published magazine though I'm not new to publishing. In 2003, I completed a degree in writing and literature and over the years, established the first Australian Book Arts Journal.  I have since written many published articles in several disciplines that I'm passionate about. 

If you know me, you'll know I love colour - the magazine has 32 pages of full colour bursting at the seams!   Do you recognise anyone you know in these photos below???? You might just find them in the first issue!
