Special-interest magazine publisher Future is launching a new monthly magazine focusing on contemporary fabric crafts.
The new title – called Mollie Makes – aims to tap into a new generation of crafts enthusiasts who are currently getting inspiration for their hobby online.
Future said the title would be a 100-page magazine featuring craft projects alongside photography and crafty ideas from around the globe.
Kerry Lawrence, publisher of Future’s hobbies & craft portfolio, said: ‘Future has a long-standing track record of launching fresh and innovative craft magazines and this latest addition to the portfolio is set to continue that tradition.
‘Mollie Makes is aimed at the new generation of crafters who are not currently being catered for on the newsstand.
‘The mix of unique editorial, first-class design, beautiful production values and innovative cover-gift will make this magazine an irresistible, must-have purchase for anyone with a passion for handmade.”
The first issue of Mollie Makes goes on sale on 12 May priced £4.99, which will include a cover-mounted ready-to-make kit.
The magazine, which will be edited by Joanna Heptinstall, will also be available via the Zinio platform for tablets and iPads and online at Molliemakes.com.
Mollie Makes is the second magazine launch to be announced in as many weeks by Future.
Last week, the publisher released details of a new quarterly magazine aimed at readers interested in automobile-related technology.
That new magazine – called iCar – will cater for ‘growing consumer interest in more efficient, intelligent and technologically advanced cars”.
Both magazines will be produced from Future’s offices in Bath.
