We saw the rumor Tweets this morning and now, sadly, it's confirmed. Meredith's ReadyMade, one of our favorite DIY mags, is folding.
MediaBistro's FishbowlNY reports: "According to Ad Age, the magazine closure is part of cost-cutting measures at the publishing company. As with any magazine shuttering, the magazine will be missed, but the truly sad part is people losing their jobs. This move by Meredith reportedly resulted in 75 people losing employment."
In 2009, the Bay Area publication moved to Iowa, Meredith's headquarters, where it underwent a major redesign. Unfortunately, the changes weren't enough to save the mag. Links below the jump.
