Pom Pom Issue 36
Available for shipping on March 1st, Pom Pom's first issue of 2021 is inspired by quilts and honours the resourcefulness, practicality, community, and design elements traditionally associated with this textile-based practice.
Patterns encourage scrap-busting improvisation and mimic the comfort of a much-loved quilt.
There are 9 unique designs featuring quilting 'motifs' of blocks and pinwheels and emulating quilting textures of hand sewing, trapunto and of course a crocheted patched jacket.
Issue 36 also 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.
