Pom Pom is turning 10 and you’re invited to our yarn party! Issue 41 marks our 10th birthday and we have a host of jubilant and celebratory designs which radiate all the joy we feel on this landmark occasion! This rare bumper edition of Pom Pom Quarterly contains 13 designs for warm and cool climes, so no matter where you live in the world, there’s handmade party outfits aplenty within its pages.
This is our most collectable edition yet! Not only is this unique issue split into warm and cool patterns, we’ve gone all out with a flip double cover. This is also the first issue printed in our new larger format! Expect lush photographic spreads and more room for patterns – something you’ve told us we could work on! We’ve also permanently increased our page count to bring you even more Pom Pom! Over the last decade(!), we’ve had the absolute honour of working with some of the most creative and inspirational people in the fibre world, and we invited a handful of them to contribute to this extraordinary summer collection!
Featuring designs by: ISA CATEPILLÀN // SARI NORDLUND // MARIE RÉGNIER // INYOUNG KIM // GINA FAMA RÖCKENWAGNER // DAWN HENDERSON // AMAlLIA SIEBER // XANDY PETERS // SYLVIA WATTS-CHERRY // KIYOMI BURGIN // SACHIKO BURGIN // JAMES N WATTS // AINUR BERKIMBAYEVA
What’s more, Issue 41 comes complete with party favours in the form of two articles and a recipe! Atsushi Futatsuya writes about cultural appropriation and the practice of Sashiko, and Atia Azmi’s ‘A Crafter’s Guide to London’ is a wonderful tribute to the vibrant city in which Pom Pom was founded. Dee Omole shares her recipe for the most stunning white chocolate madeleines we’ve ever seen – we’re sure these would make a statement centrepiece at any shindig. So grab your knitting needles and crochet hooks and celebrate with us!
