Libby Moore, an embroider from Australia is best known for her cross stitch portraits and works on plants and flowers. We’re pretty sure you would have seen at least a piece of her on Instagram (she’s @threadfolk!). We sat down for a quick chat with Libby to find out more about how she works, including a really KOEL tip for your future embroidery projects!
As an art educator, fiber artist and Etsy seller, Kimmy Compton, otherwise known as ‘gatherhandwoven’, has wide access to the best tools in this trade. The business owner, who recently celebrated her store’s 3rd anniversary, has so graciously agreed to let us take a peek into her tool kit, and gives her advice on curating our very own. It’s always good to pay attention to the teacher, so sit up and have a listen to what Kimmy has to share!
Crafting can be fun, but dipping fingers in a pile of different creative projects isn’t something for everyone — unless you’re a multi disciplinary artist like Lucile Trichet. Maybe the Parisian girls do it better, because Lucile weaves, knits, crochets, makes jewelry and even sews her own clothes that she wears daily! As a craft addict, her tool and supplies kit must be a wonderful playground…
It’s the little things that bring us joy. For Nicole Bothum, this means knitting and sharing her love for it through her brand, Miskunn. That — and a very small and organized yarn and supplies stash. KOEL took a peek into this happy, petite stash in our column In the Kit, where we’ll share with you the tools and supplies crafters use and love.
