Knitwear designers Carrie Hoge and Hannah Fettig have always lived somewhat parallel lives. They both have worked as professional photographers. They have shared a job at Angela Adams. They both started families, and now they are both finding success self-publishing knitting books.
In 2010, Hoge helped launch Pam Allen’s Maine-based yarn company, Quince & Co. Hoge currently works from home while caring for her two children. Her recent self-published work includes Anthology I and II, a series of knitting pattern books for her brand Madder.
Fettig has been designing for her brand Knitbot since 2009. In 2011, Hannah co-authored Coastal Knits: A Collaboration Between Friends on Opposite Shores. Fettig has published several other knitting books, most recently self-publishing Home & Away: Knits for Everyday Adventures.
Stop by the shop on Saturday, October 10th between 1:00-3:00 to meet Carrie & Hannah, talk about their patterns, query them about what yarn for what pattern, maybe ask for an autograph, or that ever popular question: I am between sizes… which size should I choose? We will have some goodies to fuel you (and them) as you enjoy an afternoon with two local Portland designers!
