Fiber folk: Shannon is a knitter, sewer, designer and mother. Her desire to encourage others is evident through her blog and the various other places you’ll find her, but her ambition and hunger to make and inspire is what initially attracted me to her work. You can hear the smile in her voice and the happiness she finds in creating. You can find Shannon at and on Instagram @soveryshannon.





Man on the street: For this week’s “Man on the Street” I asked the question, “How has music influenced your fiber arts?” We had some great answers from Brienne @brienne_moody, Jennifer @jaykay_knits and Brittany @woodandwoolco
