Knit Wit is a new voice for and home to the modern craft movement. Through captivating photography and thoughtfully-arranged storytelling, we aim to celebrate the dynamic world of contemporary fiber arts and craft; to create a publication that is as richly beautiful and exciting as the work and community it reflects.
With an internal motto of “interest over instruction,” Knit Wit seeks to engage and inspire; to clear an inclusive space that is inviting and comfortable for masters, hobbyists and newcomers alike. It’s a publication for anyone with a curious mind, a love of design and an interest in people.
About Issue 4
Hot. Here, we celebrate all things fiberous en plein air. Our coverstar, Maura Ambrose, grows or forages all the dyes with which she creates fabric from hand-stitched quilts. Meanwhile, in the very southern tip of India, Industry of All Nations gets a lesson in ancient resist-dyeing techniques using humble nails and wax. In Australia, twin sisters (and stitchers) Maricor/Maricar create vibrant embroidery, always with a playful wink. In the well, Hilary Walsh takes her new line Doen out for a spin with some friendly alpacas in California. All in all, an issue worthy of your beach bag, your knapsack or anywhere the summer might take you.
