I’m so proud to share this amazing project by my dear friend, Vickie Howell: The Knit Show! As the former host of several knitting shows on cable TV, and a weekly Facebook Live host, Vickie has built an army of followers, all dedicated to living an artful life. She truly loves serving them and has never stopped.
What I love about Vickie is that she is always pushing to find new ways to deliver the goods to the crafty masses, and The Knit Show is her biggest endeavor yet. It’s a Kickstarter campaign to launch her own high-quality web series, and she has a professional team to back her up!
Vickie is a professional, a mom, crafter, artist, thoughtleader and a power Latina! She follows through above and beyond with everything she does. I hope you’ll join us in making this happen!
Here are details from her site:
The Knit Show with Vickie Howell
From the Host of the wildly popular DIY & HGTV series, “Knitty Gritty”, and PBS’ “Knitting Daily with Vickie Howell” comes the very first studio quality, community-funded and internationally accessible episodic how-to knitting & crochet series: “The Knit Show with Vickie Howell”. We invite you to be a part of it!
What It Is
The Knit Show with Vickie Howell is a web-based series combining those foolproof aspects from the former TV shows that YOU loved with elements that speak to today’s mindful and media savvy viewer, including:
- Industry experts and superstar guests;
- Knitting & crochet tips and techniques;
- Modern, totally make-able, high quality projects in a range of levels for your downloading pleasure.
Along with a heaping dose of how-to content, each 30(ish) minute episode will also include a segment focused on mental & physical health as pertains to knitting & crochet, or a fun glimpse into the shops, groups, and lifestyles of our global craft community. We’ll also make it easy for you to be a part of that community through open communication via social media. PLUS, you won’t have to worry about the financial burden of having cable, or the hassle of figuring out when your public television station is airing what you want to watch. This is an egalitarian, inclusive-to-all, knitting playground made for and with you!
The entire first season of “The Knit Show” will go live, via our website and Youtube, at one time. This means whether you’re in Austin Texas, or Melbourne, Australia you’ll be able to binge watch the season whenever (and as often) as is convenient to you!
