25th Anniversary Special Issue

Martha grew up in a hardworking Polish-American family where crafting, baking, cooking, gardening, sewing, and building were everyday activities. From the outset, she envisioned Martha Stewart Living as a how-to brand, and she insisted that every recipe and instruction be thorough and accurate. Yet for a lot of people, it’s hard to justify making anything at all by hand. If it can be bought, why bother? Because creating matters. When you make something yourself, it acquires significance and meaning—it gains a backstory—and it connects you to something vital and creative in your core.
