I am a big fan of Germany based “Making Stories” for their beautiful patterns and articles by and for knitters - discussing not just their craft but their perspectives on issues around identity, body positivity and equality.
Making Stories magazine is an ad-free knitting magazine. They believe in preserving their independence when it comes to deciding who they feature and work with through not accepting any ads for this magazine.
The magazine is printed on 100% recycled paper, one of the few that’s certified not only with the EU Ecolabel and the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, but also with the Blauer Engel certificate.
Who’s behind Making Stories Magazine?
Making Stories GmbH is an independent knitwear design publisher, owned by Hanna Lisa Haferkamp who runs it together with her small, kick-ass team.
They believe in choosing to use resources and capacities, be they human, environmental, social or financial, in a way that can be sustained in the long run. They believe in being aware of and actively reflecting on all parts of their (work) process and communicating them openly and honestly. They believe in treating all living beings involved in our work fairly, respectfully and lovingly and in caring about and for their physical and mental well-being. They believe in not discriminating against anyone based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, health, physical appearance, economic situation, education or any other factor, being mindful of what that means for their lives and their stories and working towards a world where everyone is free to create the life they wish to live.
