Amy Singer: Knitty Magazine Editor and Publisher
This week I talked with Amy Singer — the editor and publisher of Knitty, the longest-living, online knitting magazine. Amy’s publication gave me my first break as a designer back in 2003, and our paths have crossed many, many times since then. We talked about her guest spot on a TV show I used to host, her allergy to a material some would consider crucial in the knitting and crochet industry, what the genesis was for her launching a web zine pre-mainstream blog and social media days, how crowd funding completely changed her business, and about how some somewhat common –although not often-enough discussed — women’s health issues can really harsh a gals’ creative mellow. Amy is smart, open, and always fun to chat with.
