Spring into Issue 36! Pompoms first issue of 2021 is inspired by quilts and honors the resourcefulness, practicality, community, and design elements traditionally associated with this textile-based practice! Expect patterns which embrace improvisation, are the perfect home for treasured mini skeins (hello scrap-busting!), and mimic the comfort of a much-loved quilt. Crafts collide within our Spring 2021 collection, as we celebrate how patchwork, embroidery, and sewing are an important part of knitting and crochet as well as arts in their own rights.

In addition to 9 unique designs, Issue 36 contains an interview between Sara Trail of the Social Justice Sewing Academy and Emi Ito, in which they talk about Sara’s moving intergenerational memorial quilting project, and an article by Sofia Aatkar on crafting and identity expression. It’s no secret that the Pom Team adore the colors pink and yellow, so when Gina Fama Rockenwager proposed her bright Battenberg cake recipe, we jumped at the idea!
