Coronavirus and your subscription

The Corona Virus outbreak has had a significant and unprecedented impact on a number of businesses throughout the UK, including publishing.

Sadly, we are very sorry to update you that due to the impact of the pandemic on our business, we have had to make the extremely difficult decision to cease publishing a number of our publications.  We appreciate that this be very disappointing news but we wanted to thank our readers for their loyalty and support, whether you’ve only recently joined us or if you’ve been a member of our community for many years.

Magazines affected:

  • Craft magazines that we are sadly ceasing publishing: Cross Stitch Crazy and Cross Stitch Gold.
  • Craft magazines which were paused but resumed publishing in July are Love Embroidery, Love Patchwork & Quilting and Mollie Makes. These titles will now publish a new issue every 4 weeks.
  • Craft magazines that were unaffected and will continue to publish 13 issues a year are: Simply Crochet, Simply Knitting, Simply Sewing, The Knitter, Today’s Quilter and The World of Cross Stitching.
