Love this! Knit designer and teacher Vickie Howell has just launched a kickstarter campaign for “The Knit Show,” the first community funded and internationally accessible episodic how-to knitting web series.
Vickie’s “Knitty Gritty” TV series was enormously popular, and many were disappointed when it ended in 2009. Inspired by the messages she receives every day from viewers saying how they miss having a television show that speaks directly to the knitting & crochet community, Vickie has decided to launch a series online.
“The Knit Show with Vickie Howell,” will be a web-based series, and Vickie tells us that she aims to combining all the popular segments from her previous shows: industry experts and superstar guests; knitting & crochet tips and techniques, and modern, accessible high-quality projects in a range of levels.
