Guiding and connecting knitters to get more balance and focus in our craft, business and... life
making mindful choices for the products you use and be intentional about the projects you make so that your knitting is stress-free, mindful self-care.
–Saskia de Feijter
Do you want...
... to have a conscious, intentional and relaxing knitting practice?
Are you feeling overwhelmed?
The knitting industry, not unlike other industries, overwhelms with a shitload of yarns, tools and patterns.
It's becoming hard to distinguish and choose the GOOD* brands and GOOD* products from all the yarns, tools and patterns on offer. We want to make the world a bit better, vote with our money, but where do we start?
The lack of intentional choice (what's right for YOU), conscious choice (what's right for the human family, animals and the environment) and time is leaving you overwhelmed and without focus. Kind of stressed out really...
This sucks, because knitting was supposed to be part of your conscious lifestyle. You wanted to feel relaxed, calm and focussed and the opposite is actually happening.
I made a change
I felt overwhelmed I in BOTH my personal and professional life! I owned a yarn shop for over a decade and in my spare time I ... knitted too.
I was flooded with yarns, tools and patterns, it became too much of everything.
When the mountain of yarn, tools, patterns and WIPS (works in progress) started to consume me instead of calm me, I needed to make a change.
4 STEPS to build a more conscious and focussed practice
from FREE information to a guided membership,
because knitting is supposed to relax and not overwhelm you and because we love the earth and its inhabitants.
The most important thing is to make a change TOGETHER. I urge you to make your decisions consciously also, and especially, when it comes to our products and tools.
Improving your personal knitting practice and becoming an active part of building a healthy and GOOD* industry makes you feel empowered to make a change in other areas of your life. Making changes start small and are totally obtainable.
