A new issue of World Sweet World magazine

Monday, December 7th, 2009

Hi everyone,

we proudly announce that the latest issue, #8, of World Sweet World magazine is out now, in shops around the country and some shops in Australia, and available from our website. Here’s a little sneak preview!

World Sweet World Issue 8We have a picnic-set project in store for you, in time for summer – have your own kit stowed in your bag at all times for emergency picnic breaks. We talk about crafty businesses again, in Miss Millie and Lucy Arnold’s article on selling at craft fairs, which is full of inspirational tips to help you get the most out of your crafty day. Also, we’re excited to report that Wellington now has it’s very own weekly craft fair – Frank Kitts Market, starting Dec 12th, underneath Frank Kitts Park on the waterfront. We’ll be there most Saturdays, so do pop by to stock up on mags for gifts, to renew your subscription, or just to say hi.

Last not least, summer is never complete without a soundtrack, so we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite New Zealand musicians and compiled a summer mixed tape (free download!) for you to bike, swim and play to. We’re absolutely stoked to have such talented artists on board and are proud to be able to support their music.

Have fun, and we hope you have a good summer! xx Thomas and Hannah

issue5 cover

Lots of news since the last post! Issue 5 is out now so get your mitts on a copy. You can buy it from any of our usual lovely stockists, and for those of you who’ve been finding us tricky to track down, we’re also now in all Whitcoulls stores too. We’ve got heaps of cool projects again (well, of course I’m going to say that): Making your own fondue set, making blankets out of curtains, bottling light (read it to believe it). We’ve also got an article on the lovely Heike Theis of minu, a piece on fairtrade coffee, and Rebekah Kelly lays out the options when it comes to dealing with your organic waste (we’ve even got a how-to on making your own worm farm).

Seeing as we launched in Autumn last year, that officially makes the mag one year old. Hooray and happy birthday to us (even though we already celebrated our “business idea” birthday at the end of last year. The more birthdays and celebrations you can squeeze into a year the better, I reckon).

We’ve also been celebrating for other reasons. Not to turn this blog into a me-fest, but those with eagle eyes may have spotted in Issue 5 that Hannah Gardiner no longer works for World Sweet World. Thomas and I got married last weekend, so you’ll now see Hannah Schickedanz plastered throughout the mag. Another hooray for us. Sorry to everyone whose mags have been a little late in the post over the last couple of weeks – now you know why!
