Calling all explorers! We're traveling around India to bring you an insider's scoop on the talented artisans and makers who produce the products we love in the fiber arts industry. In this video, we tour Rupalee (Hindi for "pretty girl") and meet the incredible artisans who hand-forge Parveen scissors from carbonized steel and cast brass. Tune in to learn more about this Fair Trade company committed to the empowerment of women, and check out our Facebook page to do some live shopping with Jimmy!

 
 

Also on today's agenda- Jimmy, Shannon, Matt and Kyle tour the Knitter's Pride headquarters and learn about their hand-crafted needles and block-printed techniques! Check out more photos from the Knitter's Pride factory here!

Speaking of world travelers, good ol' Kris Kringle is busy prepping his sleigh for his annual trip around the world. The holiday season is fast approaching, so don't forget to grab a 2017 Craftvent Calendars and join us for a 24-day mystery knit-along as we countdown to Christmas! Kicking off December 1st, you'll open one box each day to reveal luscious hand-dyed yarns, needles, and notions, along with daily clues to knit up your project. By the end of the 24 days you'll have a stunning shawl to wear (or gift!) for the holidays, designed by Rachel Roden.

Choose between three color combinations and get ready to cast on December 1st! All calendars ordered now will ship out on November 20th.

WOW! Just wow. Our Jimmy Beans community is the absolute greatest. Jimmy, Doug, and Huck traveled to Houston last week to deliver all of the collected #iKnitForHarvey stuffed animals to the children of the Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP), along with a check for the funds raised through our campaign. It has warmed our hearts so much to support this wonderful organization, and to help bring smiles to the faces of children and families that have endured significant hardship this year. Thank you all for dedicating time out of your busy lives to join our cause and knit stuffies for the children. We say this all the time, but we truly believe that when this amazing community comes together, we really can help better the world one knitting needle at a time.

Head over to our blog to read all about Jimmy's trip to Houston, as she recounts her favorite moments and final thoughts. We cannot thank you all enough for making this campaign a huge success. We couldn't have done it without you!
