The Conscious Makers
If you are ready to take your passion for making things with your hands to the next level, this is your community of Conscious Makers.
Enjoy the process, value the product and think of the impact.
A year ago, a group of makers ( crocheters and knitters) started reflecting on our buying and creating habits. We started calling ourselves 'The Conscious Makers', a group of curious people that want to investigate on how to implement more sustainable habits into our love for crochet and knitting.
You might be a Conscious Maker without knowing it, just have a look at some of our core values:
CREATE WITH A PURPOSE AND VALUE
Sharing, inspiring, encouraging questions and open respectful debates are one of the pilars of The Conscious Makers community. Above all, creating to enjoy the process and caring for a long lasting quality end product, for yourself or others, to bring back the real meaning of slow fashion and handmade.
PASSION FOR YARN
We love yarn and we cannot lie. All shapes and colours, but we are also curious of how and where its made.
learning of more sustainable options and helping each other to buy consciously to create and not only to accumulate.
LEARN AS A MAIN FOCUS
Crochet or knitting, we help each other, share tips and enjoy making as a group.
If you love to share your knowledge and also see other as colleagues and not as competence, you definitely are a Conscious Maker.
WE ARE REVOLUTION
We want to stop buying so many things from mainstream and mass produced garments.
Making your own clothes makes you a rebel, so go ahead and tell other about the handmade revolution.
SHARING FUN MOMENTS AND DRAMAS
Chat with others, tell them about your tangled skein of yarn, your recent frogged project and have a laugh while sharing yarn dramas.
We promote a healthy way of making, no rush, learning about materials and value every single stitch and thread we use. We are curious of where, how and who made our yarn and reflect on our impact on the planet as makers.
