I feel that I write about this every day but it bears repeating. I do not want to interact with you if you support our current, sitting white supremacist. That being said, I don’t want to interact with you and you have no space on this page if you engage with ANY white supremacist behavior, violence, or racism. I do not want to interact with you if you do not actively work against racism in your every day work and life.
The international news cycle has a spotlight on our community right now and probably will be for the next 24 hours. How will we utilize this spotlight to enact positive change? Is the company that has the monopoly on selling patterns living up to your standards? Should they be investing their funds into moderating more heavily? Why did this ban happen NOW in the first place when white supremacy and racism has been a part of the political and cultural landscape of this country since its inception? These are the questions we must pose to ourselves and to one another. I stand with #ravelry on their decision but wish it was a ban on not a symbolic figure but what he represents.
Please block and unfollow me if this doesn’t sit right with you. I’m proud to state with every ounce of my body, mind and spirit that you are on the wrong side of history. EDIT: will be moderating comments accordingly although at this point I think my queer Jew self has scared away all the fuck heads 🤓🤓🤓🙃🥰💩

This is the last week to support @sisterspgh412 through a purchase of one of our patterns! Instead of releasing new patterns this month, we’re donating 25% of sales to two queer-run nonprofits that we know are doing phenomenal work AS WELL AS revamping four of our patterns - the first of which is the #xtinacrop! We’ve added 9 sizes to this pattern—that’s right, you can choose from 18 sizes, 18 different amounts of ease, 2 colorwork charts AND this gorgeous crochet hem designed by @eweiskindyarns has been added to the pattern. Because of all of the hard work gone into this update, we’ve upped the price to $10, HOWEVER, you can still use our sliding scale discounts to receive 10-25% off the pricetag. Help us raise money and support our fellow, badass queers! Support your fibre artists this summer, we need it now more than ever! #bornandraisedknits #crochetknitting .

We have been hard at work on the #brkretreat over the last couple of months, and I am so thrilled to finally announce who is on our planning committee! We reached out to dyers, makers, designers, LYS Owners, bloggers and fibre enthusiasts to participate and collaborate with us on this project. These incredibly kind and generous individuals have signed on to use their knowledge and experience to create a true fibre retreat for ALL. This committee will meet in September of this year to finalize programming for our first public retreat in 2020. To make this happen and to be able to bring all of these incredible makers together, we’re going to need your help! Stay tuned for more info soon and make sure you’re singed up for our newsletter to be in the know on all things #brkretreat! (also PS I’m terrible at alpha-order plz forgive me!!) -

It’s #pridemonth and this queer-owned and operated company is doing something special! Instead of releasing a new pattern, we’re donating 25% of sales for the month to two organizations we’re passionate about: @sisterspgh412 and @genderjusticela! In the spirit of accessibility, we’re still offering a sliding scale payment method for all patterns—or you can pay full price, whatever you would like! Check out our 🌈 highlight for more info on these organizations and their work.
