Candice English of The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers has been an inspiration or a long time, both as a dyer and as an advocate for Indigenous women. Pom Pom welcomes Candice as Guest Editor for this issue. Candice has brought a fresh perspective to these pages, along with her distinctive aesthetic, drawing from both her Indigenous roots and life in the American West.
The patterns in this issue are a representation of hard and soft duality in the American West. The hard work embedded in the people of Montana is a result of the softness you find in the spirit of Indigenous homelands. You will find classic designs that can be worn in utilitarian ways but also jazzed up a bit for social outings.
Featuring designs by: Allison Lutes // Esti Juango // Elena Solier Jansà // Natalie Bullock // Sandy Jones // Lindsey Fowler // Lena Zharichenko // Lee Ann Yazzie // Imke von Nathusius // Tin Can Knits
