Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Meredith Publishing Co. announced this morning that it is shutting down ReadyMade, the drool-worthy, bi-monthly design magazine once-dubbed the "Martha Stewart for 20-somethings."

ReadyMade, founded in 2001, was known for its witty content, genius design makeover suggestions, and ruthless dedication to everything DIY. No word on refunds for subscribers or when the last issue will be released.

In the meantime, if you spot a crafty-type in tears or a young creative with far too many supplies and no direction, you might want to let her know it's going to be OK.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
