The Knit Show with Vickie Howell: Kickstarter Campaign!
I. Am. So. Excited. Behind the scenes, I’ve been working on something for some time now and have been DYING to share it with you. Now is the time!
In an effort to spearhead a void that’s been lacking in our industry for far too long — together with the team from ProductionFor — we plan to produce what will be the first studio-quality, community funded, internationally accessible how-to knitting episodic series. (Phew, that’s a mouthful!)
What It Is
The Knit Show with Vickie Howell is a web-based series combining those foolproof aspects from the former TV shows that YOU loved with elements that speak to today’s mindful and media savvy viewer, including:
- Industry experts and superstar guests;
- Knitting & crochet tips and techniques;
- Modern, totally make-able, high quality projects in a range of levels for your downloading pleasure.
Along with a heaping dose of how-to content, each 30(ish) minute episode will also include a segment focused on mental & physical health as pertains to knitting & crochet, or a fun glimpse into the shops, groups and lifestyles of our global craft community. We’ll also make it easy for you to be a part of that community through open communication via social media. PLUS, you won’t have to worry about the financial burden of having cable, or the hassle of figuring out when your public television station is airing what you want to watch. This is an egalitarian, inclusive-to-all, knitting playground made for and with you!
The entire first season of “The Knit Show” will go live, via our website and Youtube, at one time. This means whether you’re in Austin Texas, or Melbourne, Australia you’ll be able to binge watch the season whenever (and as often) as is convenient to you!
Here’s a video where I tell you that and more!
