"We work closely with makers based in Maine and throughout the United States, and I lean heavily on their expertise when designing new products. I might have the knowledge from a knitters perspective, but each of our makers brings their own set of skills to product creation, and that collaboration feels unique." - Whitney Hayward, Creative Director of Twig & Horn, a Making No. 2 / FAUNA sponsor!
"When Carrie announced the theme for Making Fall 2016 as Fauna, I instantly thought of cochineal and wanted to use it as the central dye and color for this project.

"I'm a bit of a Crochet Crusader, always trying to show people that crochet is gorgeous and you really can crochet with NICE yarn. I love that this hat doesn't look like traditional crochet, and might lure people in before they realize it is, and by the time they do, it'll be too late to back out because they are *hooked* (apologies, i can't help it!)" - Cal Patch
"The Brandy Milk Punch featured in Making is not a new drink. It goes back to at least the 1860s when it showed up in the first book published about making cocktails. So, it's an old one but it's also simple, flexible and delicious." Read more from Trey Hughes of the Portland Hunt & Alpine Club.
