Making No. 6: Black & White.

Happy to announce that the latest issue of Making is in!

The theme of this issue is black and white, and features projects for makers of all kinds – knitters and crocheters, quilters and sewists, weavers and rug hookers, bakers and more.

I spotted plenty of familiar names in the knitting department – designers like Gudrun Johnston, Jennifer Steingass, Susan B. Anderson, Amy Christoffers, Mary Jane Mucklestone, Veera Välimäki, and others contributed to this issue.

Beautifully photographed and lovingly produced, Making is a treat of a publication.

Look for it on the teacart here at the shop, surrounded by the best in new books and magazines for makers like us. See you there!

Making 2018 Wall Calendar.

The Making 2018 wall calendar is here, and so lovely!

Each month has a beautiful drawing of a particular breed of sheep alongside a plant used for natural dyeing.

Many of these sheep breeds are unfamiliar to us – how we wish we could represent them all in yarns on our shelves! We did see a few friends, though, like the Finnsheep whose fleece make Tukuwool Fingering, and the Rambouillet whose fleece make Brooklyn Tweed Vale.

This would be a welcome gift for any knitter, spinner, dyer, or sheep-lover this holiday season. Come by the shop to pick one up!
