My Favorite Asian Owned Crafting Businesses

I haven’t had the urge to blog in a very long time. But today I was randomly going through my drafts and discovered this half finished list of my favorite Asian owned crafting businesses that I started all the way back in May. So I decided to finally finish it today. I haven’t actually made purchases from all of these businesses but I’ve included photos with the ones I have purchased from. The others are businesses I admire on Instagram and hope/plan to purchase from in the future.

Sewing

Love You Sew
Bag patterns and hardware kits. I haven’t made any of her bags yet but I love following her on Instagram.

Intensely Distracted
Garment labels. I love how simple these labels are while still being really cute. I’ve used the “mindfully made” labels in a few of my garments now.

Cloth Story
Great selection of denim. I purchased some Swift Mills denim from them for my second pair of Ginger jeans.

Sew Modern
The most beautiful selection of deadstock fabric. I purchased some deadstock Atelier Brunette fabric from them to make an Archer Button-Up by Grainline Studio.

Arrow Mountain
The most beautiful buttons and sewing tools. I’ve used their buttons on a couple of projects now.

Ose Patterns
I haven’t made any of their patterns yet but they look lovely.

Knitting

Marianated Yarns
Beautiful yarns. I used a OOAK (one of a kind) skein by them for the main color of some Lyne Socks I made by Dawn Landix.

Wobble Gobble Yarns
More beautiful yarns. I first discovered this company at the NJ Sheep & Wool Festival back in 2019. I used their Sari colorway as the first color of my second So Faded Sweater by Andrea Mowry.

Forever Yarn
Yarn shop located in Doylestown, PA that I haven’t had the chance to visit yet but hope to someday soon.

Loopy Mango
I haven’t had the chance to visit this shop in person yet either but their yarns and patterns are just so dreamy looking.

Hello Lavender
The most beautiful stitch markers I’ve ever seen but you have to be quick to catch their shop updates before they sell out.

Tina Tse Knits
I made the Eleven Twelve Sweater and thought it was such a fun pattern to work on. I didn’t even realize it was my first colorwork sweater until I was done working on it because it was so simple and I always imagined colorwork to be so much more complicated.

Jessie Maed Designs
I made a short sleeved, cropped Cozy Classic light using yarn remnants and loved how it turned out. I plan on making the long sleeved version at some point.

Aimee Sher Makes
I am currently working on their Boba Time Socks and I think it is such a brilliantly written pattern. I can’t believe just how much they actually look like bubble tea!

Stitch and Story
I am also finishing up working on Stitch and Story’s Charlie Brown sweater for my nephew. While I had some problems with the pattern and the yarn splitting, the yarn is so soft and the end result is so cute. I can’t wait to see it on my nephew.

Studio Pigeon Creek
I won a skein of their self-striping yarn during Aimee Sher Make’s Knit Diverse Knit Along on Instagram and it was such a joy to work with. It was my first time using self-striping yarn and I can’t wait to buy some more.
