With Making Stories Magazine, Hanna Lisa strives to feature companies and makers who focus on sustainability, transparency, fairness, and equity in their work.
They love telling their stories and hope to inspire and enable crafters to make conscious and informed decisions about the materials they use and the companies they support.
They’re proud to be able to share the fantastic work of writers and visual artists with you with pieces that range from disability and knitting to body image, from queering the knitting status quo to what change means for our lives.
In addition to the designs, we’re so excited to share these essays and illustrations in Issue 6 with you:
- Susan Chin shows us what we can see if we look up in her stunning illustration “Skyward”
- Deborah Stack shares why knitting is not the new yoga and three fantastic tips on connecting with your knitting in her essay “Mindfulness and Knitting”
- Luuanne Chau explores identity and name in her beautiful personal essay “Another Name”
