Let's Get Ready To Knit + Escape!

First of all, I want to thank Kristy Glass for inviting me to be a part of the upcoming Knit + Escape event! Kristy was one of the first makers who really welcomed me into the knitting world when I was but a young granny. I am thrilled to be able to be a part of her virtual event Knit + Escape! On Saturday, April 10th I will be teaching Social Media Tips For Your Small Business at Knit + Escape.  It's only two weeks away so I have a lot of excitement to pack into a short amount of time, so let's get into it!

I made so many mistakes when I was first joining social media. So this will largely be a do what I say and not what I do situation. But the biggest mistake I made when I first joined the platform was taking tips and tricks from large accounts and assuming that they would work for my small start-up. Hint, hint, they didn't! Many accounts offer advice based on what worked for them 5 years ago or even just 1 year ago and social media moves so quickly that what worked for them might not work for you anymore. 

I want to help handmade businesses get that kick start. Through this class, I hope to set you up for success so that you start to build an audience that cares about what you have to say. 

If you are looking to gain 10K followers overnight then this is not going to be the class for you. But If you are looking to build an engaged following. Then I can't wait to share my cautionary tales with you! 

And if you have questions that you want me to cover in the virtual event there will be time for that at the end of the class so feel free to send me a direct message on Instagram and I will try to answer it on the 10th

See you soon!!!

The Hexie Cloud Baby Quilt By Kylee Alexander

The quilt that started it all - the Hexie Cloud Baby Quilt makes its debut. By Kylee Alexander  The Hexie Cloud Baby Quilt, in all of its glory. As a lifelong sewer and fashion designer, all of my sewing had been garment based. Upon graduating college, the first project I thought I would create was a new collection, or even a garment for myself. Instead, I began patterning on my studio floor, creating a pattern for my first quilt - a log cabin to be exact. In the spate of freelance jobs juggled with full-time work, the quilt got shelved. Over several years I designed and created several collections, lots of garments for myself, but eventually hung up my idea of creating the perfect log cabin design.  It wasn’t until years later that I began reconsidering quilting. At 75, my grandmother began (and completed!) her first quilt and gave it to me. Obviously inspired and with an array of cottons I had stashed, I began conceiving my new quilt design. I had plenty of blues, and as someone who

Top 10 Forgotten Knits in Memorable Movies

W hen you think of each of these movies chances are these are not the sweaters that pop into your head. But they should be! I'm going to explore knitwear that is continuously overlooked because a much more iconic item of knitwear steals the show. Maybe this will inspire you to take a second look at these movies.
