Things grow. Things Change and, things come full circle.
These are things I am learning on this journey.
Stitch & Hustle is one of the most fabulous things I have ever done. Launching this blog was scary and exciting and has been a bit of both every step of the way since. But after 2 years and bumps in the road, ups and downs, and discovering and witnessing some of the ugliest truths in the shadows of the maker community, I have realized it is time to shift.
I took some time to dig deep and ask: why am I here? I decided that no single person or group of people gets to decide if you are a maker. And no one group gets to decide who can make things. (Side note: Imagine how the grandmas of the world before the internet would react to that!?) It brought me back to that question I often pondered: Who Is A Maker?
I resolved to this:
This blog is here because I love to make things.
I love sharing that love.
I love Fiber Arts and all things fiber.
So I have decided it is time for Stitch & Hustle to make a turn and return to its roots. Return to my roots: The Fiber Arts and love for all things Fiber that first brought me here.
To celebrate this return to LOVE FOR FIBER and SHARE IT - Stitch & Hustle will be posting a new FREE Pattern every Monday at 9am Chicago time from now through Christmas 2018.
