Sequoia Spring Issue Launch Party

Hooray, it’s almost here! We have approved our spring issue proof and our magazines are heading into printing and binding this week! We spent countless hours working on our spring magazine in the past couple of months. From content writing, to photo shoots, to layout design, to interviews, it’s all been put together and we can’t wait to share it with you. If you’ve already pre-ordered your copy, soon we will be shipping it to your door or we will have it ready for pick up.

If you haven’t already reserved a copy, we encourage you to do so here or, come purchase your copy in person at our spring issue launch party happening on Saturday March 2nd here in Winnipeg. We’d love to have you join us! (More details on this event can be found at the end of this blog post.)

So what’s inside our spring issue?

We’ve titled it “forgiveness” and our editor Terrilee Friesen shares her thoughts on the topic with an added conversation with Wilma Derksen, who has a wealth of inspiration and hope to share with us.

We also have our Wisdom Portrait in this issue, and this time we invited Victoria James’ to share her personal story in her own words. It’s a crazy story, and she has us captivated throughout the whole eight-page article.

Our food features are back and in this issue we highlight the benefits of cooking with fresh herbs. The delicious recipes and mouth-watering photos we share are sure to get you excited about the warmer spring months that are just around the corner!

Tiny Urban Living, home & lifestyle feature in our spring issue.

We also stopped by for a visit at a young couple’s loft apartment in downtown Winnipeg. Their tiny space (450 square feet to be exact) is such a charming mix of modern, minimalist design and practical, cozy living. They share with us the perks of downsizing, decluttering and finding peace living in a well designed home. Their cute puppy Rennie also makes an appearance in the article!

Our Gather article in this issue features Terrilee’s family as they share the tradition of making Easter Buns, and it includes the recipe, tips on decorating and photos of the making of the buns as a family activity.

Tips on storing fresh herbs, written by Sarah Harrington, featured in our spring issue.

Our spring issue holds 67 pages filled with more articles that include DIY projects, an artist feature, a local business feature, and much more. We’re excited about its release and we hope you join us at our launch party on Saturday March 2nd! We would love to have the chance to say hi to you, and for you to find out more about Sequoia. We’ll be having light refreshments, a few words by Terrilee at 7:30pm and copies of the new journal issue for sale. It’ll be a come-and-go party at 1400 Pembina Highway, here in Winnipeg. Hope to see you there!
