Take a Break Makes 1 2022

Welcome to the brand-new issue of Take a Break Makes, a magazine for enthusiastic crafters brought to you by the team at Take a Break.

 Spring is coming and we’re looking forward to warmer weather. To celebrate the start of the new season, we’ve got some gorgeous spring projects for you to try. This issue is packed with makes that we know will keep you busy until summer!

 Whether you’re just starting to dabble in crafting, or you’ve had lots of experience — we’ve got something that will help you get creative. All you have to do to make something beautiful for yourself, your home or as a gift, is follow our simple step-by-step guides. If you don’t have much time, there are some quick makes that only take minutes. But if you’ve got time for a bit of slow crafting, then try one of our weekend makes.

Wedding season is on the horizon and if you, a friend or family member are getting hitched, check out our wedding craft special. We’ve got some gorgeous projects to add a personal handmade touch to your big day. You could also get inspiration from the brides who decided to get crafty for their weddings. If you’re looking to add a splash of spring colour to your home, then we’ve got lots of fabulous projects for you to try — including a felt flower wreath, a pom-pom chandelier and an embroidered folk-style plant pot.

 Our team of experts will also be helping you get to grips with some new crafts, including rag rugging and wood carving. These masterclasses include lots of top tips and a simple step-by-step guide to a simple make to get you started. We’re sure you’ll fall in love with these new crafts.

 And it wouldn’t be Take a Break without our real-life stories. We’ve got some inspirational women who have turned their hobbies into successful creative businesses. Once you read their stories, you’ll want to make the leap yourself. We’ve also been talking to the refugee women who are using craft to weave a new life for themselves in the UK. And some of you have been sharing your favourite makes and telling us why you loved making them.

 If that wasn’t enough, we’ve also got amazing prizes that every crafter would love to get their hands on. So don’t hang around — just turn the page and start planning your next project!
