Craft magazine sent me an email this week and also posted on their website that they will no longer print their magazine CRAFT. Instead they will focus on the Craftzine.com website and the print version of MAKE magazine.
I can't say I'm surprised given the current magazine environment, but I am bummed because I enjoyed CRAFT-- I loved the layout, the size and I always found something interesting in it.
And the last issue (and I do mean LAST issue), featured Amy Sedaris, who I think may be the funniest woman on earth. And coincidentally, I had just bought her book, I LIke You: Hospitality Under the Influence, which covers such important entertaining topics such as how to put on pantyhose (with step-by-step pictures) and how to handle a psychopath at your party (lure him or her into the closet and block the door with furniture). She covers party etiquette as well. When you regret to a party, she says "everything after the 'because' is bullsh*t." You know what she is talking about-- "I can't come to your party BECAUSE I have to wash my hair." Words to live by-- just say you can't come.
Goodbye, CRAFT. I look forward to seeing the changes they come up with for Craftzine.com.
