Happy New Year! We hope you had a festive Christmas and enjoyed all the food and merriment. If you happened to have bought a copy of Mollie Makes in December, you’ll know we’ve had a little mention on our top seller, Luca Pom Hat Kit! It was certainly a great way of rounding up a very busy first year and we’re super chuffed about the caption, too, paying homage to our designs always makes us smile! =)
A lovely feature on Stitch & Story’s founders’ Jen Chan and Jen Hoang by Blogster: The Boulevardiers. Here’s a snippet of our Q&A with them:
Who’s Stitch and who’s Story in your duet?Our name doesn’t represent anyone but rather, an idea. Knitting is a way of embedding our creations with emotions and memories i.e. on all the careful time spent crafting; the cakes and coffee accompanied with curious minds; and the victory of finishing your hand-knitted item, quirks and all! We want every knitted project to be meaningful, whether it’s for gifting or for yourself – there’s just a great sense of achievement in having knitted an item yourself and that adds to the richness of stories behind handmade products and thus, every ‘stitch‘ knitted builds a ‘story‘…!
Knitting…how come it’s now fashionable?
Like other recent boom in household crafts such as baking and sewing, the return to needles and yarn has been seen as a wider backlash against the superficiality of modern life. While manufactured goods can be functional, durable, beautiful, even inspiring, the very fact that they are mass-produced makes them disposable. In its uniqueness, a handmade item such as a knitted item carries the imprint of its creator. The very fact that you’ve made it means no one else will be wearing the same thing as you!
Tis the season to be jolly…and learning a new craft! If you’re stuck on what to gift your loved ones this Xmas, why not choose something different such as a knitted scarf, hat, or jumper? Learn to knit with Stitch & Story with online video tutorials and knit kits.
Which colour will you choose this Xmas?
