Jennifer and I have been working a little with a new magazine called, Make it Mine and wanted to share what’s going on in their latest issue with you! Here’s a sneak peak of some of the great project ideas they’re offering as inspiration to make your style… well, your own! Check it.
Turn your own blueprint design into a one-of-a-kind scarf!
Diamonds as a girl’s best friend is soooooo pre-“Blood Diamond“! It’s all about the shoes, now. 😉 Make it Mine’s 2nd issue celebrates this love of fancy footness, with a ton of examples on prettifying your peds!
In the mood for a little felt on felt action? Well, there’s a feature just for you. LeBrie Rich (watch the interview I did with her last November at Stitch, here) shows us how she turns fiber, into art pieces!
If you haven’t already checked out the magazine, it can be found on most news stands, now.
I also have copies of the latest addition (featuring all aforementioned crafty goodness & more) to give away to 5 people (picked at random), who add Make it Mine as a “friend” on MySpace over the next 3 days! Simply go to their page and click on “Add to Friends”. On Sunday afternoon, we’ll put on a blindfold and point at names on the “Friend Request” approval list. It’ll all be very scientific! 😉 If you win, we’ll contact you via MS for contact info.
The majority share of the knitting, crochet, and crafts industries, and the community that supports them, are women and non-binary folk with uteruses. After yesterday's devastating supreme court decision, essentially removing women's constitutional rights over our own bodies, need to support one another. We need to love each other enough to not give up. I see you. My heart is with you.
Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to be on a Zoom action-meeting run by a major women's healthcare organization. We feel powerless, but one of the suggestions they gave for things we can do is to donate to grass-root organizations that focus on women's healthcare clinics.

If any women or non-binary people with a uterus who are attending @hhamericas and need emotional support after today’s devastating Supreme Court ruling, meet-up at the seating section on the show floor next to the stage, after the Indie Magazine Panel at 1pm. 💗 #roevwade...
YarnYAY! Design Team member Chris Bahls has done it again — he created another gorgeous palette of our A-Frame Shawl! We love it so much, we’ve made it a kit. See this one, and our other shade options (featuring VH Montoya Merino Light) in the YarnYAY! Shop (link in bio) at www.YarnYAY.com
