I have been following Gaye Glasspie’s blog, ggmadeit.com, for a while now, and I’m so excited to get to feature her today! She commented on a recent interview I did with Michelle Coffey, and I knew it was my chance to ask her to be on Knit’s All Folks! Her blog is honest, funny, and […]
Knit Picks has a 40% off deal on their amazing collection of knitting and crochet books. The sale ends Monday, so act fast! I perused looking for diverse designers to support, and sadly did not find a single designer in the top 100 best sellers. As in zero. I was so disappointed. At least some […]
Super pumped that Ann Miner, owner of the Yarn Folk store in Ellensburg, Washington, featured Knit’s All Folks! in their newsletter this week! Ann has been so supportive of my goal to encourage more diversity in the yarn crafter community, and I’m so honored that she chose to give a shout out to Knit’s All […]
Diversity and representation are important and need to be encouraged in our culture. Knitting and crochet media has a tendency to skew white, as I’ve written about in previous posts. This post is for the knitting and crochet designers of color who are killing it with great designs and amazing books. If you think of […]

I don’t want to step on toes if you’re only looking for crafters of colour. […]
I’m so excited that I have a guest post featured on the amazing Donna Druchunas’ Sheep to Shawl blog.
Donna is a legit-as-hell knitter, designer, and teacher! (That’s obviously a technical knitting term.) She has eleven knitting books published, including a sock book I really need to pick up. (I need all the sock knitting help I can get.) She even has a section of her blog devoted to Subversive Knitting. How cool is that?
I met Carla on Ravelry and I was immediately excited by her blog, Tiny.Angry.Crafter. I used to call theater productions I produced and directed One Tiny Woman Productions, so I related immediately! Carla’s blog shows off her fabulous fashion sense and provides interesting insights into vintage knitting and sewing. Let’s get to know Carla better, shall we? […]
There are a lot of diverse fiber folk – despite that moment when people look at you like you’re in a zoo for doing something wacky, like knitting in public. Interweave Knits, a knitting magazine with generally fantastic and awesome patterns, recently included this quote on inclusiveness in the preview of their 2017 Spring magazine, the […]
