Welcome to our very first CraftWorld digital magazine! We’re bursting at the seams on the site to bring you exciting content, so here’s a lovely curated magazine featuring the latest news, good reads, skill-building masterclasses, shopping offers, free patterns and more to tantalise!

Our aim is to bring you a mix of amazing crafts to cater for all and tempt you into trying something new to excite your creative soul! The sun is shining, so it’s the ideal setting to craft your next project, so grab a cup of tea and some biscuits and settle in for a read before you start. You can get to know knitter Sylvia Watts-Cherry, learn top tips for colour blocking with Tilly and get a glimpse behind the scenes at TOFT.

There are some amazing tutorials and pattern downloads in this month’s issue – it’s hard to know where to start! The colours really pop in our Mia Mandala squares, Kay’s mixed-media card is bloomin’ gorgeous and Ruth’s velvet cushion is so much fun to make.

Last but not least, have you seen our CraftWorld Premium Membership? If you upgrade your free CraftWorld account you have access to over £800 worth of additional benefits to enjoy. Unlock the full CraftWorld experience to have the latest inspiration, downloads and offers at your fingertips!

I really hope you get some time to enjoy creating this month – and make sure you upload your latest projects onto CraftWorld and tag them with craftworldmagazine so we can see who is following!
