The following is an announcement from Interweave/F+W Media…
LOVELAND, CO – February 22, 2013 – John Bolton, SVP and Publisher for Interweave/F+W Media today announced the promotion of Knitscene editor Lisa Shroyer to editor of Interweave Knits and Knit. Wear. Over the past five years, Shroyer has developed Knitscene magazine from a once-a-year special edition to one of the fastest-growing quarterly knitting magazines on the market. Her fresh approach to style in Knitscene has resonated with contemporary knitters, and in 2013 the magazine will move from special issue status to a full subscription magazine.
Shroyer is excited to bring this same energy to Interweave Knits, and explore the signature style that has made the magazine well-loved in knitting circles. Interweave yarn group editorial director Karin Storm was thrilled to offer the promotion, stating, “Lisa has built a reputation as a creative editor with a great sense of style and deep knowledge of the knitting industry. Interweave Knits and Knit. Wear. will continue to grow and thrive under her leadership.”
Interweave will commence with a search for a new editor for Knitscene magazine. Former Interweave Knits editor Eunny Jang will be leaving Interweave in early March to pursue other opportunities.
