Coming Soon! Exciting Changes Ahead!

My Workbasket- a blog about crafts, traditions, the crafting of traditions, and the tradition of crafting

I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

If you have stopped by anytime recently or have been reading my last few posts you know I’ve decided to make some changes here. Well, the biggest change of all has been decided. I’m super excited!! I’ve been doing this blog for over 2 years, and I’ve changed quite a bit since the beginning, but this change is the biggest one I’ve tried yet. It’s BIG!

I’m NOT blogging anymore.

But don’t worry! I’m not going anywhere. I’ve decided to run My Workbasket as an online craft magazine instead!!!

What does that mean exactly? Mostly that instead of posts and patterns bumbling it at various times, every two months ALL NEW content will pop up all at once! Every free pattern will have any needed tutorial videos to match. Articles to help with those free patterns and with your crafting in general. Even some fun reviews for yarns, crafts books, and more. Several fun and QUICK crafts too!

It MAY grow into an e-zine at some point, but right now that’s not happening. Everything will be here, still free, still crafty. Nothing special to download or track down anywhere.

The first Issue is due out March 3rd! I’ve already got patterns lined up and projects figured out for you. It’s gonna be great.

In the meantime, this month I haven’t forgotten you- I have my latest FREE crochet pattern coming out! My new pattern is called The Nicholas Hat. It’s beginner friendly, and get this, it works with ANY yarn, and makes ANY size! PLUS, I have a full series of tutorial videos to help you every step of the way. I don’t have an exact date on that release yet. My Editor (aka husband) is still working on the videos. I also am waiting for some decent weather to take some good photos of the finished project. If I don’t get good weather then I’ll come up with something! It should be all ready in the next week or two though. The intro video to show the pattern off a bit should be ready any day!

To be the first to know about the first issue of My Workbasket, and when my Nicholas Hat pattern is released, be sure to sign up for my newsletter!

So in Summary:

  • I’m not blogging anymore.
  • Mark your calendars for March 3rd!
  • New FREE Hat pattern coming out this month. Works with ANY yarn and makes ANY size.
  • Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter to be notified of the pattern release and the first issue release!

I’d love to know are YOU excited?!!?!? Does the craft magazine format sound exciting!?!?!?

  1. Alicia, if you need some projects to do, I’m listing a bunch of Fad of the Month Club kits on eBay. I’ve got 36 up so far, with many, many, many more to come. Take a look!

  2. Where can I find the first issue of your craft magazine? Thank you!

      Hi! Unfortunately, I had a variety of life happening and decided to hold back on the magazine idea. SO I’ll still be releasing free patterns and all but not in the magazine format as planned.
