We're Back!

These are interesting times for the publishing industry. The impact of readers like the Kindle has barely been felt and it has already changed the print industry. The legitimacy of digital publication is no longer in question, but these waters are still untested.

Tension Magazine wants to lead the way in crafts publishing and set a precedence for excellent quality and fair compensation. My personal unwillingness to compromise on either of those points pretty much drives everyone around me a little crazy. I won't let something go until it is good enough for Tension.

To accomplish this lofty goal, we need your help. I'm already amazed at the show of support the yarn loving community has shown us. We are thrilled at the response to our website and the three patterns offered in Cocoa. Thank you all so much for links, and please keep posting them.

We need your continued patronage, and that's why we're changing our format around. Instead of quarterly, we're going to offer new content more frequently. We want you coming back for more, more often than 4 times a year.

We don't think you need more incentive than stylish patterns, yummy recipes and interesting articles to bookmark us and return weekly... but we would like to show you our appreciation with our Super Fabulous Yarnaholic Giveaway.
