New York, NY, March 04, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Popular Woodworking, the nation’s leading resource for woodworkers, isn’t afraid to take a band saw to stereotypes. The June cover features Anne Briggs, a brilliant woodworker who, as Anne of All Trades, is also an entrepreneur with a large and active social media following. The cover story in the June issue (on sale April 23) is a showcase for the burgeoning “maker movement” which emphasizes learning by doing in a social environment – values Anne and Popular Woodworking share in common.
Popular Woodworking’s editor in chief, Andrew Zoellner said, “Our mission is to inspire people to make beautiful things, and Anne's life and work embodies that spirit, from her skillful use of hand tools to running her own hobby farm business.”
Patty Craft, publisher, Popular Woodworking said, “It’s been nearly a decade since a female woodworker who wasn’t on the magazine staff has been featured on the cover of Popular Woodworking. Kudos to Andrew for partnering with Anne Briggs to showcase the impact that expert, female woodworkers are making in the formerly male-dominated hobby.”
Advertising support for the issue has been robust, highlighted by the return of Freud USA to the Popular Woodworking roster after a one-year hiatus.
Ray Chelstowski, SVP, General Manager of Popular Woodworking’s business division commented, “The new empowerment of women that we’re seeing in business, in the entertainment industry, in politics – a trend savvy marketers are keenly aware of – means a woman today sets her own rules. It’s a new day and by featuring Anne Briggs on this great June cover, Pop Wood is helping to lead the way.”
