Lookbook 14: SETTLE INTO THE QUIET HUDSON VALLEY

For centuries, upstate New York has been the refuge of artists, writers, crafters and city-dwellers—the close proximity to one of the world's most enticing cities enhances the quiet, sleepy charm of the Hudson Valley region just a few hours north. Here, meet makers with fascinating backstories and unusual past lives, now exploring their crafts fully amidst cozy, pastoral landscapes. It's no wonder that this area is also home to one of the largest wool festivals each year: the Dutchess County Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY, regularly welcomes tens of thousands of visitors in a single weekend for a fiber celebration. We took advantage of this year's festival cancellation to visit the area without the crowds and hustle, exploring it in-depth so that future travelers can see the best of what the Hudson Valley has to offer.

By Hand Serial Lookbook #14 includes almost a dozen inspiring projects for you to make at home. Embroider a delftwork-inspired lampshade, try your hand at a new accessory with Rose Pearlman's punch needle clutch, or stitch a simple quilt with vivid, indigo blues designed by Salt + Still. This book also contains a new sewn garment pattern from Andrea Hungerford: the Hudson, an A-Line swing coat that is approachable and stylish for sewists of all levels.

Lookbook #14 includes a collection of new knitting patterns, as well. Sloane Rosenthal has created a scholarly, cabled sweater in heathery dark tones, and cables take new, botanical shapes in an elegant crescent shawl, designed by Katerina Rieckel. A chic, vintage-inspired cable top by Andrea Hungerford adds a bit of casual flair, while Hannah Thiessen's chunky, large-scale scarf is a dramatic statement piece.

By Hand is a series of lookbooks that focus on different fiber and fabric "making communities" around the country. 

Each serial will feature photo journals and interviews with both up-and-coming and well-known yarn designers and dyers, local yarn stores, knitwear designers, fabric artists, and other makers who share the same philosophy and aesthetic of hand crafting functional forms to share and connect with others in the community.  Projects, patterns, classes, and opportunities to purchase the artists’ work will also be included, as well as an opportunity to share what is beautiful and unique about each locale.

All the books and magazines we sell are new. Upon receipt, we inspect them for misprints and damage, then sort them into the following categories in an effort to give you as much information as possible and make sure you're satisfied with your purchase! Regardless of the condition, we'll do our best to package your media item securely so it arrives to you in good shape. Shipping can be a tough journey, though, so we can never guarantee a book will arrive absolutely as crisp as the day it was printed.

  • Practically Perfect - as far as we can see, these are as pristine as reasonably possible. If no condition is listed, it's this one!
  • Minor Cosmetic Damage - these have very small, purely cosmetic issues that many people may not even notice. Honestly, they're on par with an average new book or magazine in a bookstore. Examples: bent corner or a small nick in the cover.
  • Moderate Cosmetic Damage - these have more noticeable cosmetic issues but are still overall attractive and completely functional. Examples: a misprinted smudge on the cover or more extensive corner damage.
  • Major Cosmetic Damage - these have been through the wringer. As far as we can tell they're perfectly functional with all pages intact, but they look more like a well-loved used book might in a bookstore. Examples: cracked spine or torn cover.
