BRIGHT / Vol. 1


We welcome you warmly to the wonderful world of BRIGHT! With the release of BRIGHT / Vol. 1 this Friday, April 15th the energy is electric, and we’re excited to share with you an immersive multi-sensory experience created for makers in print + digital + audio formats.

BRIGHT is a brand new contributor-based mixed media publication that aims to spotlight diverse voices, wellness, and the makers who bring sparks of creativity and innovation to our local and global communities.

Expanding the scope beyond traditional textile patterns and projects, BRIGHT seeks to include a broad spectrum of craft types and editorial features.
 For the first time, all pattern information and templates can be found exclusively in the digital issue, available on the Making app. This allows us to highlight the wonderful makers, beautiful photography, and vibrant editorial of BRIGHT in the print issue.
