Making Conversation with Jennifer Berg

· · · Comments

Today we're talking with knitwear designer and founder of Native Knitter, Jennifer Berg. We've had the privilege to get to know Jennifer over the past few years as a featured contributor for Making Magazine. Today, Jennifer shares her experience of growing up in her family's 4th generation retail store on the reservation and the lessons, inspiration, support, and confidence she carries with her from the strong women in her life. From hats to cowls and sweater patterns to beaded stitch markers, you can find her knitting patterns and Native Knitter gear at where 5% of all proceeds from Jennifer's self published patterns go to the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women, which works to bring justice, advocacy, and community based solutions to gender based violence in tribal communities. You can find Jennifer on the Making app @NativeKnitsShop and on Instagram at @Native.Knitter.
