Ohmygoodknits! Did you hear?! Loom Knitters Circle magazine is going to shut down again. That makes me sad. The next issue will come but after December it will go away again. Be sure to show your support and buy downloads of back & current issue of this fantastic online magazine! Maybe we can rally the troops a bit! http://www.loomknitterscircle.com/
We regret to inform you that LKC will be closing after the Winter 2012 issue. We had hoped that it would take off and that more submissions would be received. However, we have had the same few people submit every quarter. There are very few designers out there and unfortunately the magazine cannot sustain itself. The designers, columnists and the staff work almost free for each issue.
We had hoped that the sales of the magazine issues would help to pay fees and eventually increase the compensation to the designers, however, sales have not increased.
The next issue will be released at the end of this October. The last issue will be at the end of January.
Thank you for your support during our second try at the magazine” – Isela Phelps
Do you think you could help and pass the word?
I’d love to help hostthe site for back issues to remain avalable but not sure how.
I’d love to rally everyone and see what can be done but I know it needs a consistent audience to keep running an actual magazine. Let me know if you’d be interested in the issues still being available somehow. I’ve offered my help but we shall see.
