Knitting Culture

It’s no secret that we are passionate about breed-specific wool, knitting, and design. What also fuels our vocation are opportunities to share knowledge and stories with the many wonderful people who make up our community of crafters and makers. It is in this spirit that we invite you to join us for a series of local events hosted by the Brooklyn Tweed Foundation called Knitting Culture.

Knitting Culture springs from the desire to share with, learn from, and feel inspired by the many individuals who bring interesting and creative work to our local Portland community. We aim to hold space and foster connection, while nourishing one another’s creative growth.

We look forward to sharing with you!
