Formerly, True Vineyard Ministries, this organization rebranded earlier this year to have their mission match their brand.  After prayerfully considering the options of which mission to support, I decided to give Handspun Hope another year.  What drew me back to this organization for another year is how well suited our philosophies are in that we’re both eco-enthusiasts loving the world around us in Christ through fiber arts.

Garment Philosophy

I begin each garment design with a philosophy for that particular design. The philosophy is what the garment wants to be and what, if anything, are “nonnegotiable” elements and what can be tweaked if needed. For instance, proportional design is an overarching philosophy I’ve always applied in my garment designs, even before hearing Jill mention it in her class. As seen in Woodsong Camber (pre-class), the philosophy of this design is that it featured differing sized traveling cables dependent upon the size being knit. Or in Moonlit Kiss, I originally had sketched in highly detailed sleeves, but in development found the lace and cowl details were enough elements for one design so streamlined those sleeves down to a simple faux seam to match the body.
