Elsewhere: Big-screen sweaters, Japanese denim and knitted pie

Elsewhere — links for knitters, sewers, slow fashion advocates

Happy Friday! I know it’s been awhile since my last links list, but this one’s got something for just about everyone—

IN SHOP NEWS: We’ve got the new MDK Field Guide, No. 13: Master Class with patterns by Kaffe Fassett, as well as a limited-edition set of drawstring bags we’re calling Stash Bags sewn from collected miscuts, in a variety of sizes and colors. They’re sturdy canvas, endlessly useful and priced to sell! (At least one size is actually already sold out …)

Have a happy weekend, everyone—

  1. Thank you Karen for this wonderful treat! The film about Japanese denim inspires me to value what is truly beautiful in the things we wear.

  2. I live in Nova Scotia where they filmed the Lighthouse! Let me tell ya, they both wore some delightful knits to the neighbourhood bar after shooting too. That article was a delight.

  3. I loved the video about Japanese denim weaving! Then I did a little bit of research on Zimbabwe cotton production and I found a reliance on pesticide use that was contaminating water and air and is a health and environmental danger. Sigh.
    (After watching The True Cost last night, it’s changed how I view textile production….)
