The CRAFT eBook Collection (PDF) is exactly what it sounds like. It's 10 volumes of CRAFT magazine available in separate PDF downloads.
CRAFT is dedicated to the renaissance that's occurring within the world of crafts. Celebrating the DIY spirit, CRAFT's goal is to unite, inspire, inform, and entertain a growing community of highly imaginative and resourceful people who are transforming traditional art and crafts with unconventional, unexpected, and even renegade techniques, materials, and tools; people who undertake amazing crafting projects in their homes and communities.
Launched in 2005, CRAFT magazine gained a loyal and influential print readership as the first project-based magazine dedicated to today's craft renaissance. With the growing success of the popular CRAFT: Blog, CRAFT was transformed in 2009 into an online magazine reaching 1 million readers each month. CRAFT is also a thriving community -- with CRAFT forums and dedicated Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr groups -- that shares projects online and meets in real life at Maker Faire, the world's largest DIY festival.
CRAFT is the sister publication of (and created by the same team of renegade thinkers who created) MAKE Magazine. Coined "The Martha Stewart for Geeks" by Newsweek's Stephen Levy, MAKE is one of the most highly regarded and well published success stories in the consumer magazine space over the past year.Click the "Specifications" tab to read more about all 10 volumes!

Recycled, repurposed, and reused materials are the focus of the projects in this issue, which will also feature a DIY holiday gift guide. Create cool crafts and save the planet at the same time!

Craft magazine's summer issue celebrates the season by featuring recipes for ice pops, as well as how to make silicone pop molds, how to build a kite, and cold-brew coffee. We also show you how to build a rustic end table with a tree trunk, a ruffly modular dress, and stained glass. You'll learn the basics on how to bonsai plants, make a Polaroid transfer, and a vintage scarf bedspread. Best of all, we feature an entire section on weaving: basics, how-tos, and inspirational ideas for weaving projects, all packaged with a free pocket loom.
Craft magazine celebrates spring in high style, devoting our theme section to shoes! Learn two ways to mod Converse Hightops: knit one pair and swap the fabric on another. Fashion a pair of ribbon-tie sandals, open source shoes and build your own rollerskates. Plus, learn how to batik fabric, dÃ¯Â¿Â½coupage a map on a coffee table, reupholster a chair, and build a set of portable speakers.
Play is what it's about in Craft 06. Our 30 fun-packed projects include mix-and-match monsters, a flashy LED hula hoop, super cute Japanese "otedama" juggling toys, a personalized coloring book, a thumb piano from found objects, and a plush chicken and egg toy. Our eclectic mix of other how-tos includes sewing a reversible wrap-around skirt, knitting a math equation into baby pants, making solar jewelry, fig wine, a tablecloth skirt, a curio cabinet, and cardboard chairs ... and that's not even the half of it!

Beyond costumes, we'll show you how to knit a hay twine rug, work with natural dyes, carve your own crochet hooks, build a mod vinyl bench, macrame a suede curtain, create your own fabric designs, start your own craft business, and much more. A total of 29 projects!

Franchises, patterns, copies, and counterfeits — creative clones to replicate what you see, duplicate a design, or create a whole that's more than the sum of its parts.
