This issue explores the topic of Growth with patterns that reflect this inspiration both in their stitch patterns and construction. The patterns have been selected with an eye towards versatility in wearing as we approach spring a transitional season where layering is key.
The idea of Growth is considered from other angles, talking to fibre business owners who share their views on business growth and sustainability.
Gaye Glasspie dives into what sustainable growth meant and means for her, and how her crafting business took off and what that has to do with authenticity and vulnerability
Beatrice Perron Dahlen of Thread & Ladle, Emma Robinson of Woolly Mammoth Fibre Co., Armenuhi Khachatryan from Oysters & Purls and Sandra Braida of L’Échappée Laine talk about sustainable business growth and whether or not sustainability and growth are mutually exclusive
Alina Jordan explores the depth of Social Media and how its growth has changed her life as a knitter, and Ani Lee opens up about growing to appreciate her body
The Making Stories Magazine strive 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.
