Editor, Yvette Streeter
Hello! I’m the Editor of Mollie Makes, and work with our amazing team to help pull together the best craft mag ever. Getting to meet the most talented designer-makers and create something I’m hugely proud of is a dream come true. Who wouldn’t love a job that involves pom poms and confetti? Outside of work, I’m a parent to two cats, love pretty much every craft going, and I’m crazy about colour and all things cute. When I’m not scrolling my life away on Insta, you’ll usually find me hanging out with friends/family/cats and eating pizza.
Hey! I’m the digital editor for Mollie which means I’m the one behind all those Instagram stories, repins and blog posts. Before joining Mollie I worked for a digital marketing agency and studied publishing and literature at uni. I’ve also done a lot of freelance writing for music magazines in my time and am the social media lead for a music gig brand right here in Bristol. As you can tell, this all means social media is quite literally my career and life. Hit me up if you ever need a retweet.
Art Editor, Sarah Malone
Hello, I’m Sarah, Art Editor here on Mollie Makes. I’m obsessed with magazines and print design. I love coming up with new inspiring ideas for Mollies photoshoots and creating refreshing, eye-catching covers and layouts each issue. So being able to take the reigns of the Art side here on Mollie has been a dream come through. Before Mollie I worked on a wedding magazine so working with and creating fresh images is my passion.
When I’m not obsessing about the look and feel of Mollie, you can usually find me obsessing over interiors and trying to decorate my home in my spare time…
Acting Commissioning Editor, Becca Parker
Hello! I’m Acting Commissioning Editor so, with green tea in hand, I spend my time thinking up new project ideas for you all, and searching for the very best designer-maker talent to bring those dreams to life. Pre-Mollie, I’ve worked on a crochet mag, in a wedding boutique and been a bonnet-wearing tour guide. By night, I chase my side hustle dreams making colourful, vintage-inspired accessories. There’s always a knitting or crochet project under my desk.
Commissioning Editor (on maternity leave), Lindsey Newns
Hello! I’m on maternity leave at the moment with my newest addition to the family, so I’m taking a break from my role as Commissioning Editor for Mollie Makes. When I’m on the mag, it’s my job to dream up the cover gift and craft projects for the mag, choose designers, and then work with them on colours, materials and design ideas each month. I love the variety of projects I get to work on, from clay monstera leaf ring dishes, to rainbow crochet piñata cushions. You’ll find me grappling with the big questions: how many pom poms is too many? Should the pink of that skirt be more blossom pink than candy pink? And so on… I also write and curate the Mollie Loves pages of the magazine, celebrating indie shops and designer-makers’ products (and so inadvertently shopping a lot of them myself too!). Before working for Mollie Makes I worked in book publishing for 7 years, and in my spare time I dabble as a crochet designer and blog about what I’m crafting as Lottie & Albert.
Picture Editor, Emma Georgiou
Hi, I’m Emma the Photo Editor at Mollie Makes and I’ve been working on the magazine since it launched! Part of my job is to organise the shoots for the At Home With and Meet the Maker features, which can be photographed all over the world.
Before Mollie, I worked on Grazia. When not working, I am out and about looking for vintage glass and ceramics, photographing doors for my Instagram feed and doing crafts with my 8 year old.
