Memory Makers Magazine is saying goodbye... here is an excerpt from their letter...
Dear Friends of Memory Makers Magazine,
After much analysis, we have made the determination to cease publication of Memory Makers magazine with the September/October 2009 issue and cancel the annual Memory Makers Masters competition.
The passion and dedication of the Memory Makers contributors, advertisers, vendors, staff, and readers these past 13 years is what has made this business so rewarding for those of us fortunate enough to publish the magazine. Sadly, in light of increased industry consolidation, severe advertising cut backs, poor economic conditions, and lack of new consumers coming to the hobby, we cannot continue to profitably publish the magazine on- or offline.
As we work to bring this last issue to closure, however, I want to take a moment and thank you for your role in crafting the Memory Makers story. The beautiful thing about this magazine is that it has memorialized the scrapbookers and scrapbooking companies forever that really launched this exciting hobby. We are proud and thankful for that heritage.
If you have any specific questions regarding this closure, please contact me directly.
I have to say that this was one of my favourite magazines to work with... some of my favourite front covers were with them...They will greatly be missed.
