Why A Sewing Magazine?
Hey you...yeah I'm talking to you. I need your help! Would you like to read a exciting new sewing & craft magazine designed for us by us, featuring African American makers! I know that I am tired of looking at sewing magazines wondering why I do not see more faces on the covers that look like mine. Not only that but when I take a look on the inside of the covers, none of the contributors look like me either. I have been dreaming about this for a long time now and it's time to put a plan into action.
I'm at the information gathering stage and I want to know if anybody else out there is as excited as I am about this project. I have created a super short survey of ten feeler questions. If you can take a moment to participate I would be grateful!
Now hear me out my non-African American Peeps because I don't want to loose you here. I enjoy the sewing magazines that I purchase and all the experts that are contributing are awesome in their respective crafts. All I'm saying is that I know my people are just as talented and I feel that it's my calling to seek, find and feature those African American experts that I know are out there.
These are the images from my most recent batch of sewing magazines.
This is more in line with what I have in mind.
