This bumper Autumn issue, we celebrate


traditional and heritage


crafts. In exclusive interviews, we talk to the artisans doing their part in keeping these skills alive: Potters, Embroiderers, Weavers, Knitters, Quilt-makers, Wood Engravers, Trug makers, Feltmakers and Spinners. We take a look at some traditional crafts such as Harris Tweed, which are making a well deserved come back and look at others that are struggling to survive. There’s a raft of simple tutorials including weaving, quilting and embossing, as well as advice on how to get started in traditional crafts and much more. So why not join us in appreciating all things traditional and keep these much loved crafts and skills alive for future generations. Enjoy! Anna Stassen Editor
