About the Fibre Muse Quarterly
The Fibre Muse Quarterly is for the Mystics, the Givers, the Seekers and the Dreams.
It is a curation of stories, as told through words, images and knitwear designs that focus on answering the question "Why do we knit", recognizing the impact knitting has on our lives and being able to articulate that worth and value.
Knitting is not just a hobby, but a powerful medium of bringing more joy, healing, creativity and connection into our lives. We are transmogrifying knitwear into experiences that bless and uplift us and others... one stitch at a time.
The Fibre Muse Quarterly is for the passionate knitter who believes that our craft makes a difference.
The Impact Model
The Impact Model serves as the framework for the Fibre Muse Quarterly. It takes the four main reasons why we knit (self-care, self-expression, self-discovery, selflessness) and identifies the benefits it has on our lives (the impact). Altogether these reasons and benefits culminate into producing a more balanced, happier and fulfilled you.
The impact model has two layers: inner and outer. Both layers are equally important: you matter as well, and transforming your life is just as equally as valuable as transforming someone else’s. If you spend all your time focusing on helping outside yourself with no time to you, you’ll crumble. If you spend all your time working on yourself, the world will never be able to benefit from your light.
Focus on both… and you’ll be a force to be reckoned with.
(Outer) Giver - cultivating the magic of knitting for charitable causes, for a cause greater than yourself. Impact: betterment of social circles, big and small.
(Outer) Seeker - cultivating the magic of knitting for a more ethical and sustainable life. Impact: supporting and contributing to well-being of small, local businesses.
(Inner) Mystic - cultivating the magic of knitting for a more happier you. Impact: increased mental, physical and spiritual well-being.
(Inner) Dreamer - cultivating the magic of knitting for a more authentic and true-to-yourself you. Impact: confidence in who you are and not being afraid to express your true self.
All in all, you are cultivating the magic of knitting to affect change in and outside of you to make a difference.
