SUGARBAKER | New York-based Egg Collective's multi-woman show Designing Women opens on May 1st, as part of the city-wide, nearly month long celebration of design NYCxDesign. It looks like a great show, with tons of talent and some fiber in the mix, as well, from artists Dana Barnes and Hiroko Takeda.  20% of the proceeds will go to Girls Inc. NYC, which is just so damn especially dope of them. (Egg Collective)

KITS | Speaking of being especially dope, we were recently tipped off about a great give-back program being put on by the knit kit company, Sh*t That I Knit. In conjunction with Lion's Brand Yarn, STIK has created Give A Sh*t knit kits for cancer patients at the Dana Farber Institute. (STIK)

COPTER | Listening to Terry Gross talk to the Times' obit writers about their favorite pieces got us thinking about our all-time favorite: the one for spinning wheel maker Alden Amos. Apparently, his wheels were really something—he was a former Army helicopter mechanic, among so, so many wonderful key details—and apparently he was quite something, too. It's so great; you should read it.  (New York Times)

REVOLUTION | You've probably noticed a heavy bit of bias in our coverage towards companies that use ethical and sustainable business practices. We grapple with it—after all, shopping ethically can be a privilege (most of this stuff is very expensive). Those of us who can, though, probably should—and Fashion Revolution Week is here to help us ask all the right questions. Follow along (if you haven't already) and make sure to ask #whomademyclothes (#whomademyclothes)

BAI | Issue 6 is done and at the printer, which is means we're beginning our summer break. Kind of. The link to preorder will be up very shortly (you'll hear from us, trust). In the mean time, you can still download our tote pattern for free (!!!) if you want to look as cool at the beach as these dogs. (Knit Wit)
