"Pom Pom Quarterly, Issue 46: Autumn 2023 is guest edited by Candice English. This issue will be published in August 2023. Candice English (she/her) is the owner and creative director of The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers and founder of Sisters United, an orginization that empowers Indigenous women, children, and communities.”
”The patterns in this issue are a representation of hard and soft duality in the American West. The hard work embedded in the people of Montana is a result of the softness you find in the spirit of Indigenous homelands. You will find classic designs that can be worn in utilitarian ways but also jazzed up a bit for social outings.”
Candice has brought a fresh perspective to this issue of Pom Pom, along with her distinctive aesthetic, drawing from both her Indigenous roots and life in the American West. Issue 46 is a stunning collection of 10 knit and crochet pieces, complemented by features on Indigenous makers, and stunning photography with the vast Montana landscape as a backdrop."
You will find designs by Tin Can Knits, Natalie Bullock, Allison Lutes, Esti Juango, Elena Solier Jasa, Sandy Jones, Lindsay Fowler, Lena Zharichenko, Lee Ann Yazzie, and Imke Von Nathusius.
