    It's all change at HQ!

    Hi everyone! I hope you are all well. Everything's been happening here at HQ so I wanted to let you all know of a few changes - especially Let's Make Cards & Let's Get Crafting changes. First of all, it's with much sadness that I have to tell you all that next Friday (2nd) will be my last day on LMC & LGC. I am moving on to pastures new. I've so enjoyed editing the magazines and also getting to know you all over the last few years. You're a fantastic bunch and your comments, pictures and challenge entries genuinely brighten our days! Thank you for making the forum such an awesome place to be! So, as you know, Tanya also left a few weeks ago which means we have some new faces on our team! Liz Hudson, formerly of CB, is taking my place as Editor. Elaine Bennett, formerly of LK, is taking over the reigns as Deputy Editor. Our lovely Abbie Southern has moved, not far, to LK. And we've welcomed Gabriella Blake to our LMC / LGC team, whilst Crafts Beautiful have welcomed Holly Shackleton to theirs. So, feel free to say hello to our newbies and make them welcome! I'm sure I'll see you all around the boards over the next week but, as this is my 'official' goodbye, I just wanted to wish you all the best for Christmas and 2012. I hope it brings you much luck and happiness! Emily.
  3. Hi everyone! It's about time we got some healthy competition going for LMC46 isn't it?! Sorry for the delay, Tanya has left a big hole hasn't she?! So, to enter, please make a card using the fabby Christmas themed kit from issue 46, take a picture and post it in this thread. One entry per person. Entries close on 9th December at 5pm and the winner will be announced the following week. Ready, set, GO! Emily

    What is your favourite craft?

    Thanks PinkPuppy, I've had a chance to try my hand at all different things over the years having worked on LMC, LGC, Sew and Make Jewellery so I'm a bit of a jack of all trades (...and master of none?!) - but I've always loved sewing the most and I think that might be my crafty resolution for the new year (we're working on new year issues right now!) - to become an expert in one thing, sewing!

    What is your favourite craft?

    I love knitting and enjoy papercrafting, but I have be honest and say that, despite working on LMC and LGC, my first love is stitching (don't tell Abbie and Tanya! :red:)! Sorry guys!

    Owl purse lgc 28

    Love the purse Marie! Well done. That was one of my favourite projects from that issue so it's nice to see people still enjoying it

    Another bent copy :-(

    Glad to be of service! And complain about that naughty postie of yours, he sounds like a character!

    Just wanted to clarify that as a subscriber you should normally receive your issues a little earlier than the on sale date, however around bank holiday weeks it does sometimes knock things back a bit so we appreciate your patience! If you have any further problems, please let us know! Emily

    Thanks very much LGC

    Our pleasure Marie! We hope you enjoy all the yarn issues that we're having such fun putting together!
  13. Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know about a pattern correction that has come to our attention. In Let's Get Crafting 32 on page 36 there is an error in the tea cosy pattern. Shape Top Row 1: (k3, k2tog) rep to end of row Row 2-4: As Row 1 This should read work 3 more rows This means that you would continue working in stocking stitch without decreasing. Continue from Row 5 in the magazine as stated. You will also need to sew both sides from the Cast On edge to just above the double rib, not the Cast Off edge as stated. Apologies for that! Enjoy your knitting! Emily

    Creating a crafty home!

    I'm so jealous! All this talk has put me in the mood for decorating but alas I'm not allowed to paint my walls I'm inspired to schedule in a good spring clean and maybe spruce the place up a bit - some new storage solutions, throws and cushions should do the trick!
