Hey there fiber friends! I’m Michele, a NYC born and bred yarn lover. I've also always loved architecture and fashion. To me they are so similar & equally inspiring. I can remember walking the streets in NYC growing up seeing both buildings and fashions and thinking "how did they make that". For me, it was always about the construction. The process. While the road to get here was full of adventure, detours, mountains and valleys; looking back now, it makes perfect sense that the road was always meant lead me here: Designing and making things.
In addition to my own knitwear label, 144 Stitches, in 2016 I launched the blog Stitch & Hustle for the maker community to share my love for fiber along with free patterns for every level of crocheter and knitter.
