It’s hard to believe that UK Handmade is 3 this Winter! We’ve come such a long way since we first embarked upon this journey, walking a unique path with the support and collaboration of some amazing talent. It feels great to be involved with something that


I personally find so inspiring! To


celebrate and give something back, we are


launching our Beekeeper’s Quilt


Competition in partnership with jelly (find out more on p15 - 17). There’s an exclusive interview with Stephanie Dosen of Tiny Owl Knits who tells the story behind her Bee Keepers Quilt pattern currently taking the knitting world by storm. We also have gift ideas for people who have everything, advice on making your business greener for 2012, a bumper winter events roundup and lots more! Have a great Winter!
