By Hand Lookbook No. 6: Blue Ridge Mountains.

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 city 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. 6 is all about the Blue Ridge Mountains, a region pretty close to our home here in central North Carolina, so many of the locations are likely familiar. This issue will introduce or reacquaint you with a variety of makers who live and work in this undeniably beautiful part of the world: yarn shops and dyers, soapmakers and woodworkers, weavers and other fiber artists.

Black Mountain Yarn Shop is profiled, a special place we know many of you love to visit when you’re in the area.

There are also patterns and instructions for knitting, sewing, craft 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 or reminiscing on a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains, By Hand is a beautiful publication you’ll want to page through. It’s ideal if you’re in need of a little armchair traveling, too!

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