Anh-Minh Le has a great write up of CRAFT in the San Francisco Chronicle! –

“The quarterly started out as a special edition of the 2-year-old magazine Make, which focuses on do-it-yourself technology projects. But, according to Craft Associate Editor Natalie Zee Drieu, the publishers quickly knew they were on to something bigger. “They realized that this was such a growing community that had a lot of ideas to share,” she said. “There was so much content that it could be its own magazine.”

The premiere issue of Craft features 23 projects in all, ranging from home and garden ideas to fashion remixes. The instructions appear to be detailed, with lots of color photos and illustrations to guide the reader along. But I decided to put a couple of projects to the test. I wanted to gauge whether the instructions are indeed easy to follow and whether the finished products are worthy of showcasing in one’s home. “Link.
