Originally launched in the 1990s, the early issues complemented the television show, highlighting some of the projects that Stewart completed on the program. Since the end of the television series, the magazine has devoted itself to providing readers with the same tips and projects that Stewart does in her spare time. In a special Ask Martha section, readers can write questions that Stewart herself will answer about cleaning, craft supplies, and similar topics.

Each issue also includes a few simple craft projects and ideas for storing items and organizing your home.
