Uncertain Times


To our community,

I'm writing this from a very different space than I'm used to working in – home. I'm Katy, one of the newest members of the Twig & Horn team. I thought it might be a nice time to talk about what is going on in our community, and opening communication to learn more about what’s going on in yours.

Everyone is having their own experiences through this with different circumstances, different things to stress about, and different things to be thankful for. Working at Twig & Horn has provided all of us here a bit of sanctuary from the turmoil. I have found it vital to escape into work every day where we dream of new products, talk about the ones we already have, and think about how to connect with you over the next year. And yet, the quickly changing state of the world is always on our minds. A number of the makers we work with have closed their doors, and we wonder what the future holds for us.

There is no real manual for this experience, but every day we are still excited to find ways to enhance the art of knitting, and we know that will continue long after this is behind us. If knitting has been an escape for you we would love to hear from you, and how you're managing to stay creative in these times.

We wish for health and safety for you and your loved ones, and that you continue to find joy, even as we enter this new, confined way of life.

– Katy and the Twig & Horn team

My husband and I downsized about five years ago to a beautiful condo right across the street from Portland’s Rose garden. We have been getting out everyday and walking up steep hills of Washington park. My brother was a city gardener for Portland . He died of AIDS in 1993. He designed a garden for the city. When he died they dedicated the garden to him with a beautiful plague in the garden mentioning his name. There is a bench there and I go up and knit. It is a special place to knit"
