By Hand Issue 14

By Hand is a serial produced by Andrea Hungerford three times per year that explores locations around the country that have developed their own unique 'maker communities' where people who love to make, love to learn to make, and love to support makers have found a common sense of purpose.

Each of these geographic 'clusters' has its own unique characteristics, and those characteristics influence the artists who live and work there. Each issue of By Hand is a place-based celebration of these communities of makers, focused primarily on the fiber and fabric industry, as well as highlighting artists in other media who share the same philosophy as fiber and fabric artists of functional beauty. Additionally each issue includes patterns, projects, photo essays, day trips, foodie excursions, and other write-ups of aspects unique to the featured city or region.

We are 'making communities' even where physical proximity isn’t possible, by sharing our stories and journeys and images with each other.

SETTLE INTO THE QUIET HUDSON VALLEY

For centuries, upstate New York has been the refuge of artists, writers, crafters and city-dwellers—the close proximity to one of the world's most enticing cities enhances the quiet, sleepy charm of the Hudson Valley region just a few hours north. Here, meet makers with fascinating backstories and unusual past lives, now exploring their crafts fully amidst cozy, pastoral landscapes. It's no wonder that this area is also home to one of the largest wool festivals each year: the Dutchess County Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY, regularly welcomes tens of thousands of visitors in a single weekend for a fiber celebration. We took advantage of this year's festival cancellation to visit the area without the crowds and hustle, exploring it in-depth so that future travelers can see the best of what the Hudson Valley has to offer.

By Hand Serial Lookbook #14 includes almost a dozen inspiring projects for you to make at home. Embroider a delftwork-inspired lampshade, try your hand at a new accessory with Rose Pearlman's punch needle clutch, or stitch a simple quilt with vivid, indigo blues designed by Salt + Still. This book also contains a new sewn garment pattern from Andrea Hungerford: the Hudson, an A-Line swing coat that is approachable and stylish for sewists of all levels.

Lookbook #14 includes a collection of new knitting patterns, as well. Sloane Rosenthal has created a scholarly, cabled sweater in heathery dark tones, and cables take new, botanical shapes in an elegant crescent shawl, designed by Katerina Rieckel. A chic, vintage-inspired cable top by Andrea Hungerford adds a bit of casual flair, while Hannah Thiessen's chunky, large-scale scarf is a dramatic statement piece.
