​​Exploring the People & Places of Yarn

​ With this e-zine we show how identity, experience, and geography meet with making to create incredible work.

​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.

Curated ​Playlists​

​​For each issue, we invite all yarnpeople Contributors to add songs, audiobooks, and podcasts to our curated playlists.  These playlists add to the theme of the particular issue.  The playlists also give you something fantastic to listen to while you stitch.

Issue 1's Playlists are about identity and diversity.

​Giving Back to Community

​For ​​issue's 1-3 of yarnpeople we give ​$1 from us and $1 from you to ​that issue's chosen charity for each ​copy purchased.​

​From Issue 4 onwards 10% of all yarnpeople product sales will be contributing towards a Business Scholarship Program to benefit minority owned businesses. 

More details will be released soon.

Issue No.2 : ​Brioche +

In this issue we show that brioche techniques can be simple or complex.  They are possible in both knit and crochet. They produce fabrics for all seasons. Brioche is not limited to one gender.

Likewise, the designers come from the yarn community worldwide. They speak many languages. They are from and have lived in many different places. They are adventurers, expats, immigrants, and wanderers. They have survived and thrived using their making as a way both to express and heal.

Issue No.1 : Lacework

This time we focus on the beauty of lace in different weights of yarn, for all seasons.  We have hats, shawls, scarves, a toy, socks, wraps and a cardigan.  We feature interviews, designer and dyer stories, the history of lace through the ages in both knitted and crochet form.  With a monthly giveaway for all readers there is something for everyone.
