Making Stories Call For Submissions

Making Stories Magazine, a new publication that showcases fiber artists and companies who focus their work around sustainability, transparency, fairness, and equity is seeking submissions for Issue 3, which will explore themes of growth in both good and challenging ways. This could include how you’ve grown your business, a pattern that encourages growth with a new skill, or even a lesson in how to add length to a too short garment. While pattern submissions do not need to go beyond a swatch and a sketch, articles, poems, or essays need to be submitted with the full, final text. Deadline to submit your work is Sunday, April 7.


I Thought I Knew How

For your consideration, I Thought I Knew How is a humble, honest, and easy-to-listen-to podcast that follows one woman’s journey through the Master Hand Knitting program. In her most recent recording, Episode 5, host Anne Frost discusses tension and her struggles through the seed stitch swatch of the program. She parallels knitting and life, offers music to knit by, and encourages knitters to slow down with their knitting and always learn something new. Episodes are available on iTunes, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
