A Member-Supported Online Magazine
There’s so much more to fibre- and textile arts and crafts than patterns. We love patterns, don’t get us wrong, and we publish them. But we also publish feature articles and multi-media explorations about everything from where Canadian yarn comes from to what happens to a quilt when we discard it to how we can make sure the clothes we make fit us well, no matter our measurements.
Digits & Threads is made in Canada with a focus on Canadian makers, farmers, writers, designers, experts. We are for everyone, and we think our publication will appeal to Canadians and non-Canadians alike.
We recognize that Indigenous communities hold vast fibre- and textile knowledge and have rich traditions of craft, art and stewardship. We are working to establish and nurture relationships with Indigenous makers and writers.
Fibre- and textile-based works, like all things, are made within a greater context. The materials we work with affect far more than our individual creative experience; they affect the land we live on, the air we breathe, the water we drink. We focus on shining light on the interconnectedness of agriculture, manufacturing, consumption and disposal; of sustainability, social and economic justice, accessibility, diversity and inclusivity.
