I’m so happy to finally be unveiling the latest addition to the Fringe Supply Co. lineup — a sibling for the extremely popular High-fiber tote bag. This one was hand-lettered by the lovely and talented Leigh Wells and bears an unimpeachable bit of wisdom: “I make, therefore I am.” It’s the same big and sturdy canvas tote as the original, and I have to say, they make a lovely set. You should really have both.
And I’m also thrilled to finally have the new Kinfolk in stock. I got a heads-up about a month ago that they were broadening the focus of the magazine, which is reflected in the new tagline: “Discovering new things to cook, make and do.” This issue, Volume Eight — which is the first one to be published in Japan as well — is heavily Japan-influenced and is an absolute treasure trove of photos, interviews, recipes, tutorials for ikebana and indigo dyeing and origami … the list just goes on. Check it out in the shop and order your copy asap — I only have a small number. There are also still a few of Volume Seven available.
Note to MA residents: the new tote is available at In the Loop in Plainville. And the high-fiber totes are now available at The Yarn Haven is Knoxville TN. I’ll be putting up a stockists page at FSCo as soon as I have a chance. If you’re a shop owner interested in carrying any of the Fringe Supply Co.-branded goods — the tote bags and stitch markers — please get in touch!
