More New Goodies!

Two new publications have join our library.
Making Stories Magazine, by Verena Cohrs and Hanna Lisa Haferkamp, strives to feature companies and makers who focus on sustainability, transparency, fairness, and equity in their work. They love telling their stories and hope to inspire and enable crafters to make conscious and informed decisions about the materials they use and the companies they support. In Issue 1, you’ll find thoughtful accessories and versatile garments that are designed with with change in mind - change in seasons, in the way we work and live, in our choice of materials. A Ravelry download comes with each hard copy magazine

By Hand from editor Andrea Hungerford, is a community-centered publication for knitters and makers, published three times annually. In this day and age, many of us are searching for community–a sense of belonging, a feeling of unity, a desire to share our passions with others. As a sense of community becomes ever more elusive, we look for ways to build our own. A community of makers–those who find joy in creating with their hands, minds, and hearts–gives us a chance to share and celebrate our ideas and passions. Each book is a place-based celebration of these communities of makers, focused primarily on the fiber and fabric industry, as well as highlighting artists in other media who share the same philosophy as fiber and fabric artists of functional beauty. 

Each issue of By Hand will include patterns, projects, classes, and opportunities to purchase the featured makers’ art, as well as photo essays, day trips, foodie excursions, and other write-ups of aspects unique to the featured city or region. 

What are we knitting?
