We are excited to welcome Make Modern Magazine as a brand new sponsor to the Sewing With Scraps site. This digital magazine is written by quilters for quilters and includes some of the most beautiful photos we have ever seen.
Now, for those of you who are scratching your head and wondering if we really meant to write digital magazine, the answer is YES, we did!! And it is fantastic!
Digital has SO many benefits from affordability to eco friendly and so much in between. Because the magazine is digital you can enjoy it in the comfort of your home on your tablet, computer, smartphone, and laptop instantly. That means no more waiting patiently for it to arrive in the post box. This means that the creators can put your precious dollars into more important things like new patterns, amazing photography, and their creative staff instead of into printing and shipping.
For those of you unfamiliar with Make Modern Magazine, here is some backstory/history. The magazine was started in 2014 by four Australian quilters. It publishes 6 times a year and you can purchase an All-Access subscription or an individual issue that sparks your interest.
To give you an idea of what you can look forward to in each issue, here are a few covers that caught our eye. You can see they are filled with scrappy inspiration, amazing stories, and beautiful patterns for you to stitch up.
With 100+ pages in each issue, it feels more like a book than a simple magazine. It focuses on modern quilt patterns designed by talented quilters from all over the map, shares articles to inspire and teach something new, and interviews with your favorite designers.
Since the issues are delivered to your email inbox as PDF files and meant to be read on your favorite device, you can print off any of the pages as you wish, even patterns. That means, nothing to store, or add to the recycling pile. Talk about a Win-Win!
Speaking of patterns, let’s take a look. Make Modern Magazine is more than just quilts. It offers several smaller projects in each issue, here are just a few to give you an idea.
Patterns range in skill level from beginners to the advanced quilter. The main goal is to keep you inspired and get you excited to start stitching your next project!
Now, the Meet the Maker articles are beyond fun. We love the way each designer shares the skinny on their process, personal experiences and more. They really are a joy to read.
Since Make Modern Magazine is based in Australia and sold in Australian dollars, which on averages is slightly less expensive than you might anticipate. Single issues are AU$10 (approx. US$7 | Ca$9 | €6). Checking out online is easy, you can use your favorite credit card or PayPal.
Plus, if you love what you see and want an even better rate, be sure to check out their subscription plans. They offer an All-Access subscription pass that grants you instant access to all 38 issues of Make Modern (and over 350 quilt patterns) plus and annual subscription. It’s jam-packed with goodies and massive savings!
Please keep in mind that all pricing is shown in Australian dollars and will be adjusted per the current exchange rate after check out.
We are beyond thrilled to share the inside skinny of Make Modern Magazine and look forward to seeing what inspiring things they share next.
