Our Maker Life—the beloved knit and crochet collective that has become an engaged movement—presents a much-anticipated volume of patterns and stories to tempt their thousands of followers and makers everywhere
The Our Maker Life (OML) community consists of knitters, crocheters, yarn dyers, makers, business owners, pattern designers, bloggers, and social media influencers who are dedicated to creating handmade items. What began as an idea to hop offline and meet up in person has grown into an international community of makers passionate about the fiber arts. Their mission? Join together to network, connect, inspire, and make.
There’s a growing desire for more content from the Our Maker Life community, and the group has become a household name in just four years. After self-publishing two story and pattern collections, OML is building on their success and speaking to a wider audience with this first book—drawing attention to the potential that exists among the makers of the world. OML has big ambitions and it’s their motivation that makes them such an exciting and aspirational group. Their book offers, firsthand, the joy and fun of creating work by hand, and it will inspire readers with its empowering message of embracing creativity for a better everyday life—and a better world.
About the authors
Our Maker Life was founded in 2016 by five maker friends, who’ve grown this unique and talented group into a household name among knitters, crocheters, and fiber enthusiasts. OML seeks to continuously build and grow their membership, because they believe the life of a maker means something different to everyone and is equally important to include everyone.
