Exploring the People & Places of Yarn
With this e-zine we show how identity, experience, and geography meet with making to create incredible work.
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 every issue of yarnpeople, the Guest Contributor chooses a charity that is meaningful to them.
We give $1 from us and $1 from you to that charity for each copy purchased.
Issue 1's Guest Contributor is Nathan Taylor aka sockmatician. His chosen charity is the UK based National AIDS Trust.
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.
