Announcing the Launch of By Hand: Making Communities!

By Hand

By Hand is a series of lookbooks that focus on different fiber and fabric “making communities” around the country.  

Each serial will feature photo journals and interviews with both up-and-coming and well-known yarn designers and dyers, local yarn stores, knitwear designers, fabric artists, and other makers who share the same philosophy and aesthetic of hand crafting functional forms to share and connect with others in the community.  Projects, patterns, classes, and opportunities to purchase the artists’ work will also be included, as well as an opportunity to share what is beautiful and unique about each locale.

THE FIRST ISSUE OF BY HAND IS BASED IN PORTLAND, OREGON AND FEATURES:

Issue #1 also features three exclusive knitting patterns:

  1. I received my copy and you really opened my eyes to how amazing Portland is. Now I really want to take a trip there! I would love to visit the yarn store Knit Purl that is mentioned…sounds amazing. Also Canon Hand Dyed yarn is new to me and it looks so beautiful. I really enjoyed the whole issue. Congratulations! : )
