Who I am:
Vickie Howell, founder of The Knit Show
The Knit Show is the “first studio quality, community-funded and internationally accessible, episodic how-to knitting & crochet series.” It sidesteps traditional avenues to create high-quality, engaging, accessible DIY programming, content, and products.
Admitting I needed help!
How I overcame it:
Making myself vulnerable enough to admit publicly that I needed the community’s help to create this project — one that I knew would greatly benefit not only that community, but the industry surrounding it.
What happened next:
In 30 days and with over 1200 businesses and individual contributors, my team and I raised 110% of our Kickstarter goal joining the only 36% of crowd funders on that platform to successfully complete a campaign. The funding went to create the first of its kind in the DIY programming world: a studio-quality, community funded, internationally accessible, lifestyle series.
