Like many of you, I was sorry to see Matthew Teague step down as editor of Popular Woodworking, but I’m pleased to announce we’ve found the perfect replacement in someone you know.
Megan Fitzpatrick, our executive editor, will be taking over this key position and her promotion is certainly well-deserved. Over the past eight years Megan has been a passionate advocate for Popular Woodworking Magazine and for the craft in general.
You already know her from her magazine articles, blog posts, in-person workshops and participation on the woodworking forums, but Megan has played an even larger role for us behind the scenes. There, she’s been one of the guiding forces in developing the content of each issue and she’s been our leader in finding creative ways to bring you that content online. (Just as important, she makes sure we get the magazine to you on time – no small task when you’re working with a group of perfectionist woodworking editors.)
Megan is creative, hard-working and loves woodworking. I can’t imagine someone better to lead the magazine as we continue to develop it as a top source of woodworking advice, instruction and inspiration.
