The headquarters of The Magical Hobbyist magazine are located in Dublin, Ireland. The building, which is the former house of the founder, has a picturesque view of the Irish Sea. The house sits in a neighborhood of Muggle houses and looks quite ordinary from the outside. Muggle neighbors are not sure who lives in the house, though they do gossip about the strange company the owner keeps. To keep suspicion low, many employees arrive to work by apparating into a maze located in the back garden of the house.
The inside of the headquarters reflect the buildings original purpose as a home, with small segmented rooms serving as the offices and conference rooms. The kitchen is where new recipes are tested out and where employees eat lunch. The atmosphere inside is usually very fun and friendly, as employees test out new games and hobbies for the next issue.
The Magical Hobbyist Magazine is devoted to all sorts of magical hobbies and offers something for everyone! The main categories of hobbies that the magazine reports on are: games, knitting and sewing, cooking, and Muggle trinkets.
Staying true to the magazine's original purpose as a Gobstones magazine, the Magical Hobbyist remains the number one source of Gobstones news and information. They also frequently feature other popular magical games such as wizard's chess, exploding snap, as well as amateur Quidditch and Quadpot.
Knitting and Sewing:
Every edition of The Magical Hobbyist features articles on knitting and/or sewing. They offer patterns for use at home, such as sweaters, quilts, and mandrake cozies as well as advice on the best yarn, materials and tools to use. They occasionally spotlight great knitters and sewers.
The cooking section of the magazine features new recipes of varying degrees of difficulty. This is one of the more popular sections of magazine as it introduces witches and wizards to cuisines from all over the world.
The Muggle trinket section focuses on the collection of ordinary Muggle items such as rubber ducks, toilet plungers, and coins. There are often articles explaining (or theorizing) the usage and function of Muggle gadgets and gizmos.
