The Craig family

Sharing 2018

Lindsay Lewchuk Announcements, eco world, Pattern Related Leave a Comment

Each year Puddles and I pick a charity to support. You can see the diagram about it on the FAQs page, “What Happens With…” Last October I read a blog from our 2017 sharing partners, the Craig Family, on their plans for 2018 and decided to continue with them in 2018. What inspired me in particular this year is they are raising money to take a group of High School students from the village they are improving to help improve an even more remote area! Expressing their love by giving back and motivating others to do the same, resonated with me. Check out their inspiring blog here: Meeting Enga (c)John Craig 2017 blog http://www.liveforgodandlive.com/blog/2017/10/21/meeting-enga (c)John Craig 2017 blog http://www.liveforgodandlive.com/blog/2017/10/21/meeting-enga Follow …

Team Indie’s Co-Captain this year is, Ruth Brasch, and her adorable new baby, Jo! I met Ruth on Ravelry, in the Indie Design Gift-a-long. A mom of 3 little ones under the age of 5, Ruth offers patterns for mom’s on the go (and non-eco amazingly colored hand dyed yarn too!). But just because she’s a purveyor of commercial yarn, this designer has a lot of eco going for her too. She and her husband are going tiny by currently retrofitting a school bus for a cross country trip! Join me as we delve into an interview with this diverse designer, who has an explorers heart and an remarkable eye for design! Hi Ruth! (Love the Bad Wolf Bay cowl …

An entrepreneur and freelancer, I am ready to put my skills to work for you! The nature of my knitting pattern design business (Knit Eco Chic) allows me to freelance when you need services performed now rather than squeezing your job into spare moments. Pattern designing includes both technical and aesthetic aspects and with over 81 patterns published since 2011, I have an extensive working knowledge of most of the programs in Adobe Creative Suite CS 5.5. Prior to starting Knit Eco Chic, I wrote a children’s book. Prior to that I graduated Valedictorian from North Carolina State University with a BA in Philosophy and a minor in Business Management. Having this mix of education and work experience, I’ve developed …
