Meet the Maker: Paul Lowe

We recently connected with California-based maker Paul Lowe, creator of the Glazed Notions Dishes. His medium of choice? Clay, of course! As with so many of the makers we connect with, we were captivated by the story behind his beautiful pieces—and we think you will be, too. Below, enjoy this glimpse into Paul’s life and creative process. Tell us a little about yourself—what got you into making? What made you decide to start your own business?

Meet the Maker: Al Mather

Here at Twig & Horn, our team loves all things American made―in fact, it’s one of the primary considerations we make every time we start developing a new product. We take pride in making things in America because we can 1) assure their design, quality, and sources, 2) reduce our carbon footprint, and 3) keep American makers, both old and new, making.

Ultimately, the result of this partnership was the development of two incredibly unique pieces:...

Honeycomb How To

These honeycomb stitch markers have been underway for some time. We use a great recycled material for our gauge rulers and we are always on the hunt for other tools that can use this hight-quality, eco-friendly option. Stitch markers seemed like an obvious choice because you can never have too many! The honeycomb shape was the first one we drafted, and so we began our sample process. All of our products that use this material are made from an amazing craftsman in Maine, so we began figuring out how to get these little guys to not fall out during the cutting process, but yet able to be popped out when they arrive on your doorstep. This problem doesn't seem too complicated until.. well...

From Our Shipping Team

At a time where it feels like the world has turned upside down we are all so grateful for yarn and the community it has provided us. We thank you for your continued support and hope that needle arts have given you as much comfort as it has given us. Thank you for putting your trust in us and we hope to continue to honor that trust and deliver products that will bring you joy among the turmoil.  Through this time, postal services have had to cope with increased online shopping, a decreased workforce, and changing distribution hubs. Some international shipments are being sent by sea instead of air due to limited and cancelled flight schedules. We understand this impacts...
