Sup makers, Nathan here! I don't know if you know, but October is bullying prevention month. I wanted to share my thoughts, experience, and how knitting loops in with it all.
The more and more I knit, the more and more I learn that it's not always about knitting. It is always about making and it's time to make people aware of bullying and how it negatively impacts everyday children and adults. Before we get into it, I want to say thank you to Lion Brand for reaching out to the community for creating such a great awareness movement. Lion Brand has been responsible for so many great things within the community. Also, thank you to Stomp Out Bullying, a non-profit organization who Lion Brand has partnered with to put a stop to bullying. Be sure to check them out on their website and social media.
Hello makers, my name is Amanda and I am the designer, creator and freedom fighter behind Mandi’s Makings, a company birthed from the idea that we can all do something about the issue of human trafficking. It’s my passion to inspire makers to embrace their calling and use it to impact the world around them, and I'm excited to share my story today on the Our Maker Life blog!
Hi makers, Michelle from Two Brothers Blankets here! In today’s world, it can sometimes feel like shares and likes are what determine a person’s talents and abilities. With social media at our fingertips, it can be easy to compare and start to feel like we aren’t good enough. As makers and entrepreneurs, we tend to not only compare our lives, but our work and businesses as well. This is what I call the Comparison Trap, and it’s not a fun place to be. I'm excited to be a guest on the Our Maker Life blog today to share 5 tips to avoid this Comparison Trap so you can produce and grow in your own unique way, and have fun doing it!
Hi there! I'm Cristin, the coffee addicted designer behind Kozy Komforts and I am thrilled to be sharing my story here on the Our Maker Life blog!
Hi makers! Kristine of RESPONSIVE TEXTILES here! I’m so excited to share my craft with you today, but first, I have a confession. This has been weighing on me for a while, and it’s time to spill the tea. I’m a knitter who can’t do much with knitting needles. There it is! I said it! Beyond the basic knit and purl, I’m pretty lost, and it feels good to finally admit it. So how can I call myself knitter? Well, my craft is actually machine knitting.
