    Stuart Hochwert

    in Knitting

    On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (05/12/14), my guest will be Stuart Hochwert, President and Founder of Prime Publishing.

    Stuart is an expert and really a cutting edge entrepreneur in world of internet marketing and content creation. He’s also, in my opinion, a giant in the online fiber arts world.

    Prime Publishing is his 4th media start-up. Their group of 27 cooking and crafting properties creates, aggregates and reviews original content. The brands span digital websites, e-mail newsletters, social media, licensing, e-commerce, business information, and marketing services.

    If you don’t recognize the name, Prime Publishing, that’s because you probably know them from their more well know online presciences like favecrafts.com, AllFreeKniting.com, AllFreeCrochet.com, StitchAndUnwind.com, and the Knit Picky Patterns eNewsletters… to name just a few. 

    He and his team are great folks that do a wonderful job reaching millions of knitters and crocheters with killer content. And they’ve been great partners me, to our company (XRX, Inc.), and to many of our STITCHES vendors and sponsors that we work with.

    I’m excited to have him on the show to talk about himself, his company, and something new that we have planned. I hope you’ll join us for what I can guarantee will be an exciting show.

    Barbara Walker

    in Knitting

    On the next pre-recorded edition of Fiber Hooligan (airing on 03/24/14) my guest is the iconic Barbara Walker.

    Mrs. Walker has been an idol and guru to knitter’s worldwide for decades, the first of her many comprehensive collections of knitting patterns appearing in 1968. But that's only part of her impressive list of achievements in a variety of fields.

    Born in Philadelphia in 1930, she studied journalism at the University of Pennsylvania and later worked for the Washington Star in Washington, D.C. It was there in the 1970s that she became interested in feminism, while working with a local hotline that helped battered women and pregnant teens.

    After relocating to Morristown, New Jersey, Mrs. Walker became a teacher of the Martha Graham dance technique. The first of her many notable and respected books on feminism, spirituality and myth was published in the mid-1980s, as was the Barbara Walker Tarot Deck, for which she supplied the illustrations.

    Her complete writing career has been split between knitting books, produced in the late 1960s through the mid-80s; and women’s studies and mythology books, produced from the 1980s through the early 21st century. And her influences continue to be felt by more than just the fiber arts world.

    It was a rare privilege to interview her for Fiber Hooligan! I hope you enjoy this very special show.

    Julia Grunau

    in Knitting

    On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (04/17/14) my guest will be Julia Grunau of Patternfish.com.


    Julia grew up amongst engineers (dad & brother, summer jobs). She got an English degree, then worked for some R&D tech companies before 1990 becoming (as far as she knows) the first woman to sell printed circuit boards in Canada (having become interested in knitting two years before). After seven years, she decided that she would rather sell yarn instead of torpedo and telecommunications parts, so she became an outside sales rep, selling yarn to yarn stores in the Toronto area. 


    In 2005 Julia became frustrated by having to go to 40 different websites to find PDFs to buy. She wanted a kind of Barnes & Nobles for knit/crochet PDFs and there wasn't one. It occurred to her that she might be well placed to do it (techie background, techie friends, lots of knitting contacts by then). So Patternfish.com was incorporated in October 2006 and launched a year and a half later, in June 2008.


    Since then Patternfish.com has become the largest pay-only site on the internet for knit and crochet designs, with over 16,000 top-notch patterns from hundreds of fine publishers (both corporate and indie) including Sirdar, Knitting Pure and Simple, Mirasol, Prism, Classic Elite Yarns, Lucy Neatby, Anne Hanson's Knitspot, Rowan, both the Noro and Debbie Bliss Magazines, Cabin Fever, Bergere de France, the UK Hand Knitting Association, and many others. Over 6,000 of them are exclusive to Patternfish.com as digital downloads, so there’s a lot of unique things to see.


    Julia is really smart and a lot of fun. I hope you’ll join us so you can hear from this remarkable woman.

    Mary Colucci

    in Knitting

    On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (03/17/14) my guest will be Mary Colucci.

    Since the mid-1990s, Mary Colucci has served as the Executive Director of the Craft Yarn Council (CYC), a nonprofit trade association that represents major yarn resources, needle/hook manufacturers, publishers, and consultants to the yarn industry. In that capacity she oversees all educational and promotional campaigns for the industry association, as well as monitors consumer research and retailer initiatives. She is also Executive Director of the Warm Up America! Foundation, one of the industry’s leading charities.
     
    Prior to joining the CYC, she was president of CM Communications, a consulting firm, which was formed in 1988 with her business partner Christina Holmes. They handled a wide variety of consulting assignments, including product development and product launches, market research and numerous public relations campaigns.
     
    From 1975 to 1988, Colucci served as Executive Director of The National Needlework Association, another industry group. She organized an extensive network of trade shows, education and public relations programs. Prior to joining TNNA, she was editor of Sew Business, an industry trade magazine. 

    Mary will be joining us to talk about the CYC, Warm Up America!, and the newest CYC initiative… Changing Global Health One Stitch at a Time. I hope you’ll join us for this show.

    Laura Zander

    in Knitting

    On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (04/28/14) my guest will be Laura Zander of Jimmy Beans Wool. Originally from North Carolina, Laura earned a Master's in Poli Sci but switched gears while earning her PhD to computer programming (a favorite subject of hers). After lots of hard work, she landed a software developing job in Palo Alto, which is where Laura met her future husband, Doug! Wanting a change from the hectic pace of Silicon Valley, they moved to scenic Tahoe where Laura started to design websites for small companies. During this time, she learned to knit and loved it, which is how Laura met Lorna - owner of a local hand-dyed yarn company. She encouraged Laura to follow her true passion (knitting!) and voila! Doug and Laura emptied their savings account and Jimmy Beans Wool was born!


    We're going to be talking about the evolution of Jimmy Beans Wools, Sitch Red, her philosophy on business, the fiber arts industry, successes, challenges, and what's in store for the future.


    Laura is one of the most savvy business people in the fiber arts world. She's also someone who's courageous and generous of spirit. I’m so happy to be able to have her on the podcast. I hope you’ll tune in for what should be a great show.

    Brooke Nico

    in Knitting

    On the next edition of Fiber Hooligan (03/03/14) my guest will be designer, teacher, and now author Brooke Nico.


    Brooke began her designing activities by sewing her own wardrobe, inspired by drape and color. She brought her talents to knitting almost 10 years ago, first exploring modular construct, then lace. In 2006 Brooke became part owner of Kirkwood Knittery in St. Louis, MO.


    Brooke got inspired by the intricacies and challenge of lace knitting in 2008. This is really where she has made her mark on the knitting world. She sees the patterns in small mathematical blocks & creates some of the most beautiful flowing garments in the field today. Her talent has been recognized by Vogue Knitting, Knitter’s Magazine, & Debbie Bliss magazines. She taught at the first VKLive event in New York City in 2011 and at VKLive L.A., as well as many STITCHES events.


    Her first book, Lovely Knitted Lace (published by Lark) is being released as we speak. The sub-title of the book is ‘A Geometric Approach to Gorgeous Wearables’. I have a pre-release copy of her book and I have to tell you that it’s just beautiful.


    Brooke is a lot of fun. She enjoys giving me a hard time, which should make for an interesting episode. I hope you’ll join us for this show.
