Episode 100: Designing Weaving and Knitting Patterns with Angela Tong

by LaChaun Moore

Can you believe this is the 100th episode! I’m so grateful for the community that we've created with this podcast. Thank you for your continued support!

This week’s episode features Angela Tong, a designer of knitting & weaving patterns, a pottery maker and a Mirrix Looms brand ambassador. I came across Angela’s work via BIPOC in fiber project and I’m excited to share our conversation about working with the trifecta of fiber art knitting weaving and crocheting as well as how important it is to create space and amplify to voices of people of color in the world of fibers. Comment below to keep the conversation going!
