We love projects at JPK&S. We also love process. We never tire of seeing someone come in the store and buy yarn or fabric and leave with an idea of what they want to make (sometimes with a pattern, sometimes not, sometimes it’s just some dream project in their head and sometimes it’s meticulously plotted out on graph paper) and then come in and show us what they have created days, weeks, or months later. This part of our website is dedicated to our community of creators…they inspire us every day and hopefully they will also inspire you.

Meet Kimberly. She is an amazing sewer (though she doesn’t think so…). She makes all sorts of lovely little dresses for her inspiration: her granddaughter, Zaria (ZeZe for short). We are so inspired by Kimberly’s sewing, her color and pattern choices, and her productivity! Kimberley creations are always full of the details that make a garment really sing: contrasting linings, buttons, piping details, clever construction techniques. Kimberly collects vintage patterns (see some below) and is a big fan of Oliver + S patterns. We are trying to get her to teach a class for us, but she doesn’t feel ready yet. We’ll keep working on her! Stay tuned for more from Kimberly (especially all the finished projects for the fabrics below).

In today’s post we celebrate a very productive knitter who we are very inspired by especially as she is working on very tiny needles. Meet Heather. Heather came to us in the fall and bought a armful of the most lovely and delicate yarns, our Silky Alpaca Lace. In a wonderful, soft gray. She was taking on the beautiful Still Light Tunic” by Veera Valimaki. Yes, I know. I love it too. I thought about it for a second but passed once I saw the size of the needles (2.5-3). Well, guess who comes in wearing said tunic, shopping for her next project. And then, check out her next projects! We are so inspired.
