Hello! My name is Aimee (she/they), and I am a Taiwanese American knitter, spinner, and sewist who has a passion for thoughtful design details. I jumped into knitwear design in 2021 because I was inspired by the foods and experiences and creations of the Asian American diaspora. My designs are crafted with intention and I pay particular attention to sourcing materials and collaborating with other makers who align with my values.

I’m passionate about the life that exists at intersection of craft and identity, and have previously written for Fancy Tiger Crafts as well as served as editor-in-chief of Diverging Magazine. I am the host of the Thoughtfully Made Fiber Podcast on YouTube, in which I explore crafting and identity in a visual vlog format. In March-April 2021, I founded and hosted the #KnitDiverseKAL to celebrate and elevate queer and POC makers in our fiber community and bring attention to LGBTQIA+ and POC-led businesses.

Thank you for visiting today; I hope you enjoy your time here!
