From Blogging to Designing, Hosting Knit & Crochet Summits, and Running a Membership - with Hortense of Knitting with Chopsticks
Jan 25, 2024 Season 1 Episode 69
Jessica Brist

Hortense, the knit and crochet pattern designer behind Knitting with Chopsticks, unexpectedly started her business in 2018, never anticipating it'd become her full-time job. Five years later, designing is her full-time job, plus she hosted her first crochet summit last year, is hosting her first knitting summit February 1-4, 2024, and runs a membership community for knitters and crocheters!

Inside this episode, we talk about hating social media, the beauty of running a business using blogging (and free patterns), what it's like to host a summit (and what a summit is), and information about the upcoming Knit Your Wardrobe Summit.

We were so busy talking that I forgot to mention it inside the episode - the class topic that I'm presenting on is Making Garment Adjustments Using Your Actual Gauge!

Find Hortense online at  knittingwithchopsticks.com.
