Lots of craftsters seem to design their own awesome knitted goods.  Does anyone ever submit their stuff to magazines/books for publishing?

There's a new knitting zine in town that's looking for pattern submissions.  They want funky.  They want alternative goodness. They want YOU! 

Here are the deets from the editor:


SPUN: Knitting in the key of alt

Spun Magazine is an online magazine geared at the new generation of knitters.
You know who you are -- you have more in common with Debbie Stoller than Debbie

We will be publishing bi-monthly beginning in February 2005. The site is still
under construction but you can think Bust meets ReadyMade meets Tiger Beat and

The editorial board is looking for previously unpublished knitting pattern
submissions. January/February layouts include I "HEART" YOU (knitted gifts for
the person who you sort of like/ love/ enjoying hanging with), and cocooning
(titles TBD).

Unfortunately, we are unable to pay at this point. (We are developing an
advertising model from which we can demonstrate traffic and impact for potential
advertisers. It's all in the plans.)

Please email your submissions to Mary-Margaret Jones at: murmur_j at yahoo dot com

This is a VERY late response post...

Thanks for the well wishes, loudxmouse.  I hope that SPUN becomes all it strives to be.  (since posting this, I've become involved with the mag and have great hopes for it!)

SPUN is almost ready to launch with an introductory "SPUNlite" edition... watch for it in early February, 2005.

We're now in the process of looking for patterns and written submissions for the March/April edition.  Have a look-see at the website for more info:  www.spunmag.com

Yo, craftsters, it's time to represent!
