#138 Minimalism for Makers & Crafters

Being a maker means lots of decisions and lots of “stuff”.

Sometimes that can feel a little overwhelming; yarn that seems it’ll never get used; pattern decisions; project decisions. Should I use this color or that color? Wait maybe that stitch instead of this one?

If you create with yarn, chances are you’re no stranger to questions like these. A refreshing change of pace came in my chat with T from Debrosse, a maker, business owner and minimalist. In this episode I explored all the areas of minimalism as it relates to makers, yarn business owners and yarn enthusiasts in general.

Teresa Carter, “T”

T first learned to crochet so she could make blankets for boys and girls growing up in the orphanages of Haiti. Since her first visit, she’s imagined more ways to help. Her handmade collection is the start. With every purchase, she sends 15% of the proceeds to her two partner orphanages.
