Let's not do that again: Studio Miranda Issue #21
By Studio Miranda  • Issue #21 • View online
Wow, waiting more than two weeks between issues isn’t working for me AT ALL. What a terrible idea. I really missed this! So it’s back to every fortnight, with a sigh of relief. (Incidentally, I’ve moved my personal blog posts over to my old site, keeping my professional site clear for design-related posts.) 
And now, a feast of linky goodness.

Read this
The indie craft magazine boom
Knitting in Espionage
Abby Glassenberg’s feature on Binding Babies is an interesting and inspiring read, with lots of detail on launching a sewing notions business. And I’m very much looking forward to reading this book on the home-made clothing movement.

I have a new design coming out soon. It’s exactly the comfort knitting I needed this year: simple, rhythmic and very, very pleasing. It will be my 20th paid pattern, and I’ll be celebrating with a special offer. Be sure to keep reading my newsletter for details!
Happy making,
Did you enjoy this issue?
