Today sees the release of the fabulous Autumn issue of UK Handmade 2012. Arguably one of the best so far, and packed to the seams (no pun intended) with amazing articles, features, interviews, tutorials, recipes, business advice and much more. UK Handmade featuring the best of UK designers, artists and artisans has been going since 2008, and has generated a huge following, putting itself at the front of the UK handmade movement.
On August 10th to support and promote the Buy Handmade Campaign, UK Handmade is launching an awesome COMPETITION where two lucky winners can win themselves £150 worth of handmade bespoke designer jewellery.
But, sadly this will be the last issue for former Editor and talented jewellery maker Anna Stassen, as she and her hubby are leaving the UK to live in Australia. Anna has been with UK Handmade since it’s inception four years ago. Her contribution to UK Handmade has been invaluable as Editor and Director. Her drive, enthusiasm and vision has been instrumental in making UK Handmade the success it is today. Read the article about Anna and what she has done for UK Handmade here.
The talented designer/maker and deputy Editor Bebe Bradley is taking over as Editor full time. Bebe has also been with UK Handmade since it began, and has been responsible for many of the magazine’s fantastic lifestyle articles and lovely photography. Her contribution has also helped to shape the look and identity of UK Handmade.
So, I wish Anna a fond farewell in her new adventures, and welcome Bebe as Editor. Do enjoy the magazine, and don’t forget to check out that COMPETITION.
