Summer is here! To kick off our summer celebration, we’ve teamed up with Michele Costa of Stitch & Hustle! Michele is both a knit and crochet designer as well as a blogger and instructor who loves to bring yarn inspiration to everyone she meets. She is also the host and organizer of the nationwide fiber-filled fun retreat series, Stitch Up! Through her events that bring our knitters and crocheters together and the countless free patterns on her blog, Michele is a light in our fiber community. And, she not only helped us design each color way featured for July but also designed both Membership Crate patterns perfect for the experienced and beginning crafter alike.
