Knitting for Good! is thought-provoking, asking us to examine our ideas and preconceptions about the craft of knitting and the use of the work of our hands to benefit others.”—Tara Jon Manning, author of Mindful Knitting

Knitting for Good! provides a platform for progressive, forward-thinking knitters and non-knitters alike who are interested in the idea that creativity can be a positive way to change the world we live in. It is chock-full of motivation, ideas, and inspiration to get you going or to keep you on the path you are already on.”—Faythe Levine, director of the documentary, and coauthor of the book, Handmade Nation


In the last five years knitting has undergone a complete transformation. Once considered a grandmotherly craft, knitting is now embraced by new generations of young, socially and politically conscious crafters. For these new knitters, their craft represents much more than the finished project; their knitting is a way to slow down in a faced-paced culture, subvert producers of mass manufactured merchandise, embrace the domestic, connect to people in their community, support communities across the globe, and express their own personal style and creativity.Betsy Greer, creator of, has written the handbook for this new culture of knitters. By highlighting the subversive, revolutionary, and political aspects of knitting, Greer shows readers that knitting can be a profound way to: connect to ourselves by embracing the personal and meditative aspects of knitting; reach out to our community through sharing our skill and through charity knitting; and support others across the globe by using knitting as a form of activism and expression.

She offers musings, thoughts, tips, stories, and step-by-step projects - all in support of the belief that every time we knit we have the opportunity to create positive change in the world.

Heartfelt Recommendation 12. Januar 2009
Von True Stitches - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The subtitle of Betsy Greer's book is "A Guide to Creating Personal, Social and Political Change, Stitch by Stitch." As someone who has long believed that knitting (as well as most other fibre arts) is healing and life affirming (and, it must be admitted, a contributor to the book) I give "Knitting for Good" a heartfelt recommendation.

Betsy ( of "Craftivism" fame) offers lots of personal testimony, some easily digestible political rhetoric, and, at the end of every chapter, some suggestions for actions that help integrate the positive power of knitting into their lives. As well, the patterns in it are fun to knit and have quite a bit of style, a nice improvement on the basic patterns that are usually offered to those who are knitting for charity. There are lots of references included to make it easy for the reader to follow up with their own research.

I particularly like the discussion around knitting for personal expression and the therapeutic aspects of knitting, as well as the use of knitting as a political tool.

Betsy has an articulate and fresh voice that makes this book a pleasure to read. It may appeal slightly more to a younger audience than the somewhat similar volume "Knitting for Peace" by Betty Christiansen that came out a couple of years ago. Even if you have that book, though, "Knitting for Good" is valuable for the way it expand the possibilities of mindful knitting. And on the practical side, its smaller size makes it ideal for slipping into the knitting bag.

Reading for Good! 23. Dezember 2008
Von Cathy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is so inspiring and does make you feel that something as seemingly simple as knitting can change the world.

Before reading this book, I didn't know how to knit and the book still had an impact on me.

I listened to the author, Betsy Greer on a radio show interview the other day and similarly to how they do in the book, her words really resonated with me. She talked about the difference between making a protest sign with posterboard and markers in a couple of seconds versus spending hours knitting words outs on a sign she had crafted herself. It made me stop back and think about how when we rush through projects and tasks that supposedly are important, we aren't just taking them for granted, but taking ourselves for granted as well. For someone who is not a knitter, this books reminds you to slow down and think about what you're doing.

There are plenty of patterns in the book too. My friends who are avid knitters tell me these are very "cool" patterns and I hope to try them out someday. I've actually purchased quite a few copies for friends as holiday presents this year.

Hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. Looking forward to seeing what the author comes up with next.

A socially-active knitter's best friend 12. Februar 2009
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
A knitting needle can be a tool for change as much as an AK-47 can be. "Knitting for Good!: A Guide to Creating Personal, Social, and Political Change, Stitch by Stitch" is a guide for people who like knitting and activism to combine their interest and use their talents to send their message throughout the world. Slowing down a culture, protesting, showing support can all be done in its special way with a little ingenuity. "Knitting for Good!" is a socially-active knitter's best friend.

A new way of knitting 16. August 2013
Von jamurphy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I've just started reading this book so can't give a complete review but so far, I've found it to be interesting but not riveting. It's nice reading about what other people are doing with their knitting to contemplated what I might want to do with my knitting. I was hoping it could be a spring board for a group knitting experience but haven't found that yet. Maybe it will come with completing the book.
A Quick Empowering Read 11. September 2010
Von Kelsie McGrail Rodgers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Knitting for Good! by craftivism-dot-com creator Betsy Greer is a motivational book that reveals the power and appeal of craft in a world that is often too fast-paced, mass-produced, and disposable. Betsy offers valuable insight, useful tips, and simple projects that will help you create positive change for yourself and others while reevaluating your conceptions of present-day culture, consumerism, and craft.

What I admire about this book is its sincere tone and practical applications: Betsy writes on an very humble and intimate level as she inspires small acts that are largely meaningful. Her examination of craft's unique characteristics and development takes me back to my first experiences with craft and reaffirms my decision to focus on fibers and fiber processes. Even if you aren't a knitter (I usually prefer crochet, myself), you will benefit from this quick empowering read.
