Bella Crafts Quarterly Introduces Winter Journey

Bella Crafts Quarterly introduces its winter issues entitled Winter Journey!  One thing is certain…there is no such thing as too much crafty inspiration!  Now if you are not familiar yet, we’d like to introduce Bella Crafts Quarterly™, the #1 completely FREE downloadable digital craft magazine.  Finally, a craft publication designed for everyone.  OH….before I forget, I'm participating in a Blog hop and giveaway with Margot Potter this week….so check at the end of this post to find out how to participate and what prizes you can win!  That's right…prizes…plural.

Bella Crafts Quarterly™ is published by four of the Craft and Hobby industry’s top craft designers, Ann Butler, Carol Heppner, Lisa Rojas and Theresa Cifali.  These four individuals, who make up the Bella Creative Team, know crafts and craft consumers.  With the number of craft publications diminishing, a need to fill that gap was recognized by these talented ladies.

On October 1, 2012, Bella Crafts Quarterly™ launched its first issue, a Halloween Special Edition featuring Halloween crafts and a variety of relevant, industry related articles.  This issue was listed #8 of MagCloud’s top 15 popular magazines.  A smaller Thanksgiving Special Edition was created for the month of November.  These publications have been well received by the crafting industry at large.  On December 1st, Bella Crafts Quarterly™ released it first full Quarterly Issue called Winter Journey.  This issue has been greatly anticipated by readers!

Each issue of Bella Crafts Quarterly™ is filled with a variety of craft projects designed to inspire readers and foster a love of crafting.  However, the publication offers much more than inspirational projects and fabulous eye candy. Bella Crafts Quarterly™ introduces readers to craft industry professionals through its Artist to Artist and Blog Star columns.  It also serves to educate through its column Lessons with Lisa where readers can glean valuable information to improve their crafting skills.  Photo Talk deals with taking better photos for craft business.  The topic of photographing jewelry is being addressed in the winter issue.  That’s not all!

In addition to being seasoned craft designers, Ann, Carol, Lisa and Theresa are business owners with decades of experience between them.  Aware that many of their readers are also craft business owners, the Bella Creative Team strives to offer its support.  With this in mind, Bella Crafts Quarterly™ features several columns to specifically address craft business matters.  Socially Sensible is an example of this endeavor as it is designed to help craft business owners get the most out of their social media.

Finally, in the spirit of encouraging others to recapture time in their week for creativity, the Bella Creative Team features a “quick craft” in every issue of Bella Crafts Quarterly™.  This column, aptly named Cre8time™, is designed to support the Craft and Hobby Association’s Cre8time™ foundation.  The Bella Creative team is thrilled to show their support to an industry they adore.

  8. Thank you for introducing me to the Bella Crafts Quarterly!

    My biggest PR and Marketing hurdle is that I'm not sure what I'm selling!

    Fun! I will be getting this magazine now. I meet with several women every Tuesday morning for our "SSCD" (Super Secret Craft Day–joke name given by another friend). It's an open house time where we craft, share ideas, chat, have coffee, etc. I am currently teaching one lady to crochet and another to knit. I love the give and take of discussion as we come to each other with craft questions seeking advice on something that isn't just quite right. This magazine will be a little bit like that, I think. Thanks!

  11. Georgene Palka says:

    Thank you for the givaway and participation in the blog hop.   I will be checking out the issue as soon as I can.  

  12. Theresa says:

  13. kimberlee says:

    Wow, there are a lot of ideas in the magazine!

  14. I never heard of Bella Crafts Quarterly before today.  I'm going to check it out after I post this comment.  I'm following you on Facebook and pinterest now and I already like what I see.  So this shameless self-promotion blog hop must be working.  Thanks for doing it.  I sure hope to win the book.  I'm a writer myself, a different kind of craft, but when I'm done with the book I'm working on I hope to shamelessly self-promote it.  Looking forward to your reading magazine.  

  15. Laura says:

    I am so excited to find your site - I work full time and only have a limited time to create and promote.  I am at a loss – should I write a blog?  Make a website?  A facebook business page?  An etsy site?  I don't know where to begin! Even if I don't win Margot's book, your site looks very promising to help me promote myself.  Thank you!
