Hi makers! Jewell here with the OML dream team and I'm so glad to be back hosting the OML podcast, episode 6! I'm speaking with Alberto Reyes, the co-founder and creative director of We Are Knitters, which offers all the happiness in a kit through its cool and modern DIY knitting and crochet kits based out of Madrid, Spain.
Alberto has an amazing story about his start, growth, experience and leadership with We Are Knitters, a brand many of us in the maker community have come to enjoy and support so much. Since the first OML 2016 meet-up in New York City, Alberto and the We Are Knitters team have been great supporters of the OML maker movement and a top sponsor at our events through super fun and exclusive WAK knit-a-longs!
Hit the play button for Episode 6 as Alberto shares his maker story on We Are Knitters, how knitting is the new yoga, DIY and happiness in a kit - I'm pretty excited to chat with Alberto and we hope you enjoy listening!:
