STOCKPORT, England, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The crafts revolution has swept the UK over the past few years, turning many a
home into a handmade haven. From the thrifty ideas of Kirstie Allsopp to The
Great British Sewing Bee, there's never been a bigger buzz about getting
creative.

There's so much more to crafts than crocheted doilies and A-line skirts
though, as new launch Crafty Magazine aims to prove. Covering the very best in
contemporary handmade design, Crafty says "ta-ra" to twee and waves hello to
gorgeous, practical and exciting ideas for the home, gifts and everyday
living.

As Editor Sarah Adie explains, " Crafty Magazine is the go-to mag for the new
breed of makers - people who haven't necessarily had craft skills passed down
from family members, but who know how much fun making can be and thoroughly
embrace the handmade lifestyle and all its trimmings.

"We aim to inspire everyone, whether they're male or female (because craft
isn't just for girls, you know!) in all areas of their lives, whether it's
using their sewing machine for something other than making clothes and bags,
taking good business decisions to help them make money from their crafts or
simply just finding the best places to go for a bite to eat and a spot of
vintage shopping. Despite its name, Crafty isn't just about crafts - it's
about creativity, inspiration and, above all, sparking your imagination."

Issue 1 of Crafty Magazine is on sale now, priced at £4.99, and comes with
free calico fabric and enticingly simple ideas for putting it to good use.
Crafty Magazine is available through WHSmith, Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys,
Morrisons, Waitrose, Hobbycraft and all good newsagents. The title will also
be exported to the USA, Canada, Australia and mainland Europe.
