​​Exploring the People & Places of Yarn

​Our mission is to feature those not usually seen in mainstream magazines.

In light of the current situation with coronavirus (changes in purchasing priorities and job security) we are taking pre-orders for a period of 2 weeks.  

If we reach 200 digital pre-orders by Friday April 3rd Issue 6 : Colourwork will go ahead.  

Sadly if our goal of 200 pre-orders is not achieved we will be placing the regular production of yarnpeople on hiatus until the coronavirus pandemic has eased and refunding any pre-orders which have been placed.

​I truly hope we have enough support to continue to work with the talented individuals and the many new designers who have signed up to our open call mailing list.

​Intentional Inclusion

​​All Contributors to yarnpeople are selected by Intentional Inclusion.

​We specifically look to work with people of colour, people from/living in places outside of the US and UK, male & gender-queer identifying people, people with disabilities, and so forth.  

​We seek to collaborate with people with different identities, life experiences, skills, and geographies.

​Across the Globe

​Each issue has a theme that centres around a technique rather than a season.  Our contributors are across the globe, as are our readers, and we ​all experience different weather based on our location. Focusing on technique makes the e-zine more inclusive and relevant no matter where you are in the yarn community.
