CraftWorld Magazine Issue 26: August 2023
Welcome to issue 26 of CraftWorld Magazine, the only magazine dedicated to bringing free inspiration to sewists, papercrafters, knitters and crocheters every single month!
This issue is packed with projects you’ll love to make, including festive inspiration with our Believe in the Magic of Christmas makes (page 8), a presser foot masterclass on page 22, gorgeous knitted gift bags (page 25), some beautiful die-cutting designs (page 42) and a stunning Chevron blanket (page 38). We have makes for all skill levels, each one designed to add colour to your style or the perfect seasonal element to your cards.
If you’d rather just sit back with a cup of tea and a slice of cake and have a good read, there’s plenty to choose from too. I loved reading about the Sewing Bee winner (page 45) and don’t miss out on our daily dose of happiness feature on page 50 that takes you through the science and mindfulness of knitting.
I hope you enjoy this issue, and if you do, please share it with your friends!
