BlogHer Panelist-Monetization and Business Models (Intermediate-to-Advanced)-Craft + Money:The Next Steps
Anne Kuo Lukito has been hooked on crafting since her dad showed her how to sew on a button at age 8. As a self-proclaimed “Crafty MacGyver,” her many endeavors over the years have included sewing, papermaking, cardmaking, silk painting, jewelry fabrication, baking and even a few failed attempts at learning to crochet from her grandmother. Anne discovered the world of knitting in 2006, after teaching herself to knit from a book. By 2008, she was completely immersed in the craft and began developing her own designs which appeared in such renowned publications such Knitty.com, Interweave Knits magazine and the book, “101 Luxury One-Skein Wonders”. Over the last few years, Anne’s work has also appeared in several books, yarn company collections and other publications, such as Knitscene and Twist Collective. Anne also designs for her own label, Crafty Diversions, and is currently writing her first book and well as a series of booklets.
