Dear Taproot Subscribers,
We know it's been a while since Taproot landed in your mailbox. We are writing today with the unfortunate news that Issue 59::STITCH has been delayed. You can now anticipate it arriving in December.
To be transparent with you, we find ourselves in a difficult financial situation. We continue to see and experience drastic rising costs in publishing the magazine – from the ink to paper, labor costs, and shipping fees – each month brings a new and discouraging surprise. Making a print magazine has always been challenging, but despite our best intentions and planning, 2023 has proven more challenging than we could have ever anticipated.
We sincerely apologize for this delay and ask for your patience and grace as we weather this storm and while you await STITCH. It’s a beautiful issue, so full of cozy and crafty deliciousness that you’ll love. This upcoming issue is available for preorder.
If you are in a position to support us at this moment, we would be so grateful if you’d consider shopping from our collection of back issues and our online shop, full of our curated selection of goods made by small and independent artists and makers.
We are grateful, as always, for your support of our small business and this independent publishing adventure. We are deeply committed to honoring our promise to you, our readers, and contributors, and we look forward to sending you STITCH as soon as possible.
Amanda, Owner & Editor
P.S. As always, please be in touch with any questions or concerns you may have, as well as any ideas you may have as we move forward. We’d love to hear from you!
