Midway Through Its 30-Day Kickstarter Campaign, Vickie Howell’s Project, “The Knit Show” Reaches over 50% of Its Goal

“The Knit Show with Vickie Howell” will be the first Community Funded
& Internationally Accessible Episodic How-To Knitting Web Series

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#knitting–On March 20, 2017, Vickie Howell, host of the wildly popular DIY & HGTV
series “Knitty Gritty” and PBS’ “Knitting Daily with Vickie Howell,”
launched her Kickstarter
campaign for “The Knit Show,”
the first community funded and
internationally accessible episodic how-to knitting web series. At the
halfway point, the campaign has taken in more than 50% of its targeted
monetary goal.

“When we pulled the trigger on this campaign, I had no idea what to
expect. I am delighted by the unbelievable outpouring of support and
enthusiasm for this project from within the yarn world and beyond,”
Howell said. Individual pledges have come in from all over the U.S.,
Canada, Japan, New Zealand, and more. And yarn industry leaders
including Skacel and Koigu are onboard for the project, as well as
beyond-craft industry companies such as millennial media powerhouse,
Brit+Co, who are lending support to this exciting project.

To keep excitement for the campaign going, Howell (who has long been
known for thinking outside of the knitting bag) and the show producers,
ProductionFor, have released several social media friendly video spoofs,
including yarn-centric takes on 80s film favorite, Flash
Dance
, and the Netflix phenom, Stranger
Things
.

“While easily accessible craft-based television shows have all but
disappeared over the years, TV and cable network entertainment has
evolved, but so has the web. There may not be a place at the table right
now for niche, how-to programming amidst all the reality programming and
scripted series, but thanks to today’s technology we can make our own table,”
Howell said about the project. “Now, we can literally DIY our own DIY
programming, push it out on the web and reach an even bigger audience
around the world. These are exciting times, and we want to be at the
forefront of the next wave of craft programming!”

“The Knit Show with Vickie Howell,” to be produced by the award-winning
Austin-based production company ProductionFor, and joined by yarn
industry leader, Karin Strom (who will help develop the show content),
will be a web-based series combining all the popular segments from
Howell’s previous TV shows: industry experts and superstar guests;
knitting & crochet tips and techniques, and modern, totally make-able,
high-quality projects in a range of levels sure to satisfy the global
craft community.
