By Hand Lookbook No. 5: Michigan’s Great Lakes.

The latest volume of By Hand is here!

By Hand is a series of lookbooks, a magazine of sorts, where each issue focuses on a place or region. The subject matter is the makers of that community, the designers, hand-dyers, yarn companies, and fiber artists that both shape and draw inspiration from the place they call home.

No. 5 is all about the Great Lakes region in Michigan, and will introduce you to a variety of makers who live and work in this beautiful part of the world: designers and dyers, chocolatiers and leatherworkers, weavers and other fiber artists. Andrea Mowry, designer of the popular “Find Your Fade” shawl, is profiled, as is Jill Zielinski of Knitterella.

There are also patterns and instructions for knitting, jewelry making, sewing, and cooking projects. So many of us partake in a variety of handiwork, though we may call one or another a favorite; it’s nice to see a diversity of interests on display in this publication.

Whether you’re planning a trip to the Great Lakes region or are simply in need of a little armchair traveling, By Hand is a beautiful publication you’ll want to page through.

You’ll find By Hand on the teacart here at the shop. Come by to pick up a copy and plan your next project!
