Our Community

Hi Everyone,

We are still reeling from the recent events going on in our country (and will continue to), so we feel the need to keep our communication with you alive.

The knitting community is passionate, supportive, creative and open to change. We are so grateful for your inspiring posts, as they only advance the dialog in our world.

However, we still have a ways to go in terms of diversifying our community. And we are trying to address this issue (how ever small) in Knit House's social media this week, by highlighting black knitters and designers. We encourage you to follow their Instagram accounts. Great things are happening there.

Clearly, one week is not enough. It will never be enough. But we are committed to gently nudging the craft world into an even more loving, all-inclusive haven.

What are your thoughts on this topic? Do you have any suggestions for how we should best proceed? We would love to continue this conversation with you.

  • Great thought, Nancy! We are all still learning…

  • Julie—great idea. How about contacting art schools locally and around the country who might want to showcase a particular student or their fiber art department. Rhode Island School of Design graduates fabulous artists. I would guess there are some great art schools in NYC with departments showcasing fiber artists. I will try to track down a couple of folks I know that might shed additional light on the subject. Nancy
