One fantastic thing that happened in 2017 was that Sonya Philip heard our pleas and agreed to share her photos and writing on MDK.
From her Instagram, we knew to expect: 1. handmade clothing; 2. joie de vivre; and 3. San Francisco’s finest mural backgrounds.
In her Wear What You Make series, Sonya has given us much more. Her words have been thought-provoking and gently galvanizing, and her photos have blown us all away.
How many knitters have oiled up the ancestral Singer, watched one of Sonya’s Creative Bug sewing classes, and whipped up a few garments from her 100 Acts of Sewing patterns? Or maybe were just inspired to knit for themselves a bit more, and wear those knits with pride.
With gratitude and cheer, we present This Year in Sonya.
