Pom Pom Quarterly - Block Party: The Quilt Inspired Issue - No. 36
Let's spring into Issue 36! Our first issue of 2021 is inspired by quilts and honours 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.
Featuring designs by: AMALIA SIEBER // KINDRED RED // AINUR BERKIMBAYEVA // CHANTAL LAPLANTE // GINA FAMA RÖCKENWAGNER // INYOUNG KIM // JULIE ROBINSON // MARIA MATVEEVA // WENCKE PERTERMANN
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 colours pink and yellow, so when Gina Fama Röckenwager proposed her Battenberg recipe for inclusion within Issue 36, we jumped at the idea!

More About Pom Pom Magazine
Pom Pom was founded in 2012 as a quarterly that presents knitting, crochet, and craft in the modern, beautiful, and meaningful way we’ve always known it should be. Mainly conceived as a collection of patterns complemented by thoughtful writing and useful tutorials, we also celebrate the joy of making, hopefully without taking ourselves too seriously!
Since our kitchen table beginnings, we’ve gone on to feature some of the most well-known and loved independent designers and yarn producers, with some of the less well-known also growing along with us. We are so proud and lucky to be able to say that Pom Pom is now stocked at over 250 locally-owned yarn and craft stores across four continents and 20 countries. At Pom Pom we know that knitters are creative, curious people – so we also include lots of other features we think you’ll enjoy – from cocktail recipes, to dyeing tutorials, to articles about 18th century paper cut artists! Basically anything we think will inspire you. We also take pride in every detail of our magazine, from the typefaces we use right down to the paper we’re printed on – knitters are tactile people after all! We have always been, and continue to be, printed in the United Kingdom.
Pom Pom continues to grow, and we very much value each and everyone of you along with us on the journey! We are so excited about bringing you more thoughtful, beautiful, joyful, educational, and inspirational knitted (and crocheted!) goodness for a long time to come.
