By Hand Lookbook No. 7: British Columbia’s South Coast.

The latest volume of By Hand is here!

By Hand is a series of lookbooks, a magazine of sorts, where each issue focuses on a city or region. The subject matter is the makers of that community, the designers, hand-dyers, yarn companies, and fiber artists that both shape and draw inspiration from the place they call home.

The focus of this issue is the south coast of British Columbia, and the weavers, needle-felters, ceramic artists, and natural dyers who live and work there.

Many of these names were new to me as I paged through this issue, but Shannon Cook is a familiar one – her “Bradway” shawl and “Veronika Cardigan” have been popular patterns here at our shop.

Along with maker profiles, By Hand also features knitting patterns, recipes, and other crafty projects. So many of us partake in a variety of handiwork, though we may call one or another a favorite; it’s nice to see a diversity of interests on display in this publication.

You’ll find By Hand on the teacart here at the shop. Come by to pick up a copy and plan your next project!
