Today we welcome back Marnie MacLean to share her experience with 10 years of Twist!
Glint, a sparkly new capelet, perfect for an anniversary party
It’s been 10 years but I still remember when I first learned about Twist Collective. Kate and I had been following each other’s knitting blogs for some time and were already internet friends. She emailed me to say that she wanted to talk to me about something confidential and asked if she could call me.
When she told me she was starting a new online magazine with an entirely different business model, featuring many designers whose work I admired, I was chuffed to be invited to contribute. At the time, I was just starting to move from amateur design to professional and I hoped I’d be up for the task.
Ten years and about 40 designs later, I’ve had had the great privilege of being a part of almost every aspect of Twist Collective’s production cycle at one point or another.
10 years of designs for Twist Collective
I’ve learned so much being a part of this amazing magazine, and I’ve worked with some of the most brilliant and creative people in the industry to boot.
I couldn't be happier to help celebrate 10 years with all the knitters, designers, editors, writers, artists, support staff, photographers, models, advertisers and so many other who have made this magazine possible.
