Long Thread Media LLC, a new company formed by Interweave founder Linda Ligon and longtime editor Anne Merrow, announced that it has purchased the publications and products related to handspinning, handweaving, and traditional needlearts that were formerly part of Interweave.


“Looking at these rich, niche crafts, we knew that they needed a very personal approach in order to thrive today and in the future,” says Merrow. The three subscription magazines—Handwoven, Spin Off, and PieceWork—will continue publication and remain at the core of the new company, which will also develop video, multimedia, events, print, digital, and other products in those crafts. “Spinners, weavers, and traditional textile buffs count on au-thentic community and solid technical information. Linda and I know them; we are them,” Merrow adds. Read the full press release.
