Today I received the latest edition of my Crochet Today subscription — but actually I didn’t.
You see, I received a letter stating that Crochet Today will no longer be published.
Without any warning, they are now out of business. I was very sad to hear of this, but there was a bright spot.
They replaced the Crochet Today issue that should have been there with a copy of Mollie Makes US edition.
My favorite UK crafting magazine is now offering a US version. Yay!!
Mollie Makes combines all kinds of crafts into a beautifully published magazine that I have coveted since the first issue I ordered digitally through my iPad.
I had held off on the print subscription though because it was close to $100 a year to make the trip from the UK to here. Though the print version did come with fun extras like crochet hooks and pin making kits, I just couldn’t find it in my heart and wallet to spend that much.
Now, however, the US subscription is only $24.99 for 12 issues. The cover price is a whopping $9.99 an issue so the subscription is definitely the way to go if you like this magazine as much as I do. There are a few questions I have that I will keep you updated on in case you are wondering like me.
1) The letter stated that the Mollie Makes would be sent in place of the Crochet Today issues that will never get to be made. However, Mollie is a monthly and CT is a quarterly so will I receive issues monthly until my subscription runs out in August? Since the subscription price is about the same I’m guessing I should get monthly issues. Fingers crossed.
2) Will the US edition of Mollie Makes have the monthly fun extra that the UK edition provides to its subscribers? I will probably subscribe either way as long as the quality of the magazine is on par with the UK version, but I just love the little kits (search Mollie Makes on eBay to see some) that they include.
So I’m sad to see Crochet Today go, but I’m super happy to see Mollie Makes US come.
