We had a lot of fun making this goofy video. As it declares, coming in June, CRAFT, our popular go-to site for the crafting community, will be moving over to makezine.com. We’ve always felt as though crafting was just another type of making. As we’ve moved our content management deeper into WordPress, it makes sense for us to move our craft content over to the makezine.com domain and to treat it as one of the key content areas that we plan on building out as we move forward. So, coming next month, that’s what we’ll be doing. CRAFT on MAKE.
Here’s CRAFT editor Rachel Hobson on the move:
Our teams already work closely together to bring you the best of the maker movement. By moving CRAFT over to MAKE, we’ll be able to offer you the crafty content you love in a more streamlined, efficient way. You’ll get the same types of posts each day, from the same team members you know and love. All our feeds will automatically transfer, so you won’t have to update your RSS reader or other methods of reading the new CRAFT feed on MAKE. The transition will be as seamless as possible.
We’ll also be joining forces at Maker Faire Bay Area this weekend. The CRAFT and MAKE areas have merged into one amazing space, ready to spark all of your making curiosity, from stitching to soldering. Be sure to check back this week for updates on our exciting CRAFT programming for the Faire.
We look forward to working as part of the greater MAKE team and continuing to share the best DIY inspiration for makers of all kinds.

Not long until the Craft name itself disappears and only Make is left.
Boo! The same thing happened with the print version…without even notifying me that I would no longer be receiving my Craft mag or that Craftzine.com was an option, I started getting Maker in my mailbox. I find it condescending and just plain wrong when you say that “crafting is just another form of making.” I’m not even a little bit interested in metal, mechanicals or electronics and I love fiber and stitchery. Tell me how these things are supposed to integrate? It’s like trying to blend Popular Mechanics and Interweave Knits. Boo! Badly done.
Craft will be a “channel” on MAKE, with the same basic content that’s on CRAFT now. Same content, same authors, just under the MAKE banner, on the makezine.com domain. That’s why we say “same roof, different rooms.” Nobody is going to ask you to learn “metal, mechanicals, and electronics.” You never have to go to another area of MAKE if you don’t want to.
Likewise, I care not for fabric and crocheting. Oh well.
Will the YouTube channels stay separate as well? I was so glad when Craft got its own channel to get away from the “ug, me want kipkay” comments.
