Art and craft enthusiast publisher Interweave reorganizes

INTERWEAVE MEDIA, publisher of 16 craft magazines, reorganized and redistributed revenues by combining groups into two main divisions: “Fiber” and “Art & Jewelry.”

The Quilt + Paper, Specialty Fiber and Yarn groups (INTERWEAVE KNITS, INTERWEAVE CROCHET, QUILTING ARTS, CLOTH PAPER SCISSORS, SPIN-OFF, HANDWOVEN, FIBERARTS AND PIECEWORK) united to form the Fiber group.

According to foliomag.com, Vice President John Bolton will head up the new division, which also includes KnittingDaily.com, QuiltingArts.com and CrochetMe.com. Bolton’s wife, Pokey, will continue as Quilt + Paper group editorial director.  The couple will relocate to the company’s Loveland, CO headquarters.

The former group publisher of the Yarn Group, David Pyle, will become vice president and publisher of the Art & Jewelry division (AMERICAN ARTIST, DRAWING, WATERCOLOR, WORKSHOP, JEWELRY ARTIST, BEADWORK, STRINGING, and STEP BY STEP WIRE JEWELRY).

Interweave owns and operates 16 consumer art and craft magazines, more than a dozen special newsstand publications, 290 art and craft books, 30 websites, 8 online communities, e-mail newsletters, an e-commerce store, 7 consumer events, video workshops, and sponsors 3 craft television series on public television.  Interweave was acquired by Aspire Media in 2005.
