The Fall/Winter 2016-17 print issue of Whidbey Life Magazine has hit newsstands and is full of stories about people who celebrate the treasures of our island—from its sheep to its shellfish.
The cooling weather and colors of fall inspired us to bring you a trio of articles about “Whidbey’s Way with Wool.” You’ll meet four artists who work with fiber and learn about the animals who provide it. If you’ve ever wondered about how a sheep’s fleece becomes yarn, you’ll enjoy our story about the Abundant Earth Fiber Mill.
Two stories highlight iconic Whidbey Island structures, including a photo essay featuring the Deception Pass Bridge and an article about efforts to preserve our heritage barns. You’ll also learn about oyster farming, the Cribbs family of artists, and a couple that serves delectable food in a converted airplane hanger.
Pick up a copy in some of your favorite shops and stores island-wide. This high-quality, 68-page full-color magazine is created by talented Whidbey writers, photographers, and artists with the goal of sharing the best our beautiful island has to offer. Whether you’re a local or a first-time visitor to our fair isle, Whidbey Life Magazine gives you special insights into island life.
