Announced on their Facebook group today: October 18, 2012
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.
Comment with your thoughts!
- My name is Kristen. I’m an Interior Designer & knitwear designer as well as a YouTube Tutorial filmmaker & Video Host for crafts, knitting and more. My Loom Knitting tutorials are great for Knitters (or any crafter) who wanna try their hand and want to know how to convert their stitches over to the loom. Many do it to ease their hands/carpel tunnel or work faster. It’s definitely a growing trend for traditional knitters to take up or people who love crafting with yarn! My site is GoodKnitKisses or YOUTUBE. I also write and sell my own loom patterns on my ETSY shop and on Vivaloom.com I look forward to meeting new people and sharing the love of fiber arts :-) -Kristen
