By Hand is a series of look books that focus on different fiber and fabric “making communities” around the country.
Each serial will feature photo journals and interviews with both up-and-coming and well-known yarn designers and dyers, local yarn stores, knitwear designers, fabric artists, and other makers who share the same philosophy and aesthetic of hand crafting functional forms to share and connect with others in the community. Projects, patterns, classes, and opportunities to purchase the artists’ work will also be included, as well as an opportunity to share what is beautiful and unique about each locale.
Journey with the By Hand Serial team back to the Northeastern USA, to explore two states that sit snugly side by side and have maintained a direct link to the past through their textile industries, artisans, and crafters.
