I've been hearing about a 'zine called MAKE for quite some time now, but never bothered to look into it. After all, I'd thought, all of the general crafts magazines that I have seen are very similar, and I already had my favorites and not enough time for all of them, so why add another? Well, my local PBS Create t.v. station ran a marathon on Saturday for MAKE TV, and I fell in love. This is so not your typical craft magazine. With projects like robots, digital antennas, and remote controlled aerial camera stands, it's craft with a high-tech twist, and a much broader definition than is usually used. Make the time for this one, you'll be glad you did.

UPDATE: In the comments, dnaprice shared that MAKE has a sister 'zine called CRAFT that is also well worth checking out. And, my son informs me, they both have podcasts too - MAKE podcast is here, CRAFT podcast is here. Or you can get them from iTunes.

We love MAKE at our house too. My 12 yo was glued to the TV on Saturday for that same make marathon. The company that publishes MAKE also publish a similar mag called CRAFT. YOu might enjoy that one

Thanks for letting me know about that. I checked it out, and it's just as cool. Why oh why did it take me so long to find out about these!?!
