By Hand Serial / Issue 5: Michigan's Great Lakes

"A travel guide for crafters and makers."

The fifth issue of By Hand Serial focuses on Michigan’s Great Lakes—Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Superior. Andrea Hungerford writes, “Northern Michigan is a’s easy to see why so many artisans who are passionate about creating with their hands make their home here.”

This issue is filled with photo essays, day trips, foodie excursions, and conversations with local makers (including the Plucky Knitter, Andrea Mowry, Adventure Textiles, Leelanau Trading Co., Jill Zielinski, Why Not Fibers, and the Michigan Fiber Cooperative). Knitting projects, fabric projects, and recipes (the recipe for Salted Maple Caramel fudge sounds particularly enticing) further this place-based celebration of fiber and fabric arts.

Andrea Hungerford has yet to meet a handcraft that doesn’t intrigue her. With this serial, she aims to bring together crafters and makers into a community of those who find joy in creating with their hands, minds, and hearts. Focusing on a specific city or region—a ‘cluster of creativity’—these lookbooks are virtual travel guides for fiber and fabric enthusiasts.
