About Brett Bara:
Brett has worked professionally in the fiber arts industry for over 15 years, as the host of PBS’s Knit and Crochet Now, the Editor in Chief of Crochet Today magazine, and the author of sewing and crochet books.
Brett started the Brooklyn Craft company in 2012 as a one-day event called Brooklyn Craft Camp. After seeing how customers loved taking classes they opened a studio to have year round classes.
Over time Brett could tell that the customers wanted more. They wanted the supplies to be able to continue with this new skill that they had learned. Taking a leap of faith they moved their studio to a new location and opened their shop.
Brooklyn Craft Company is a modern craft store and DIY workshop space located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. They stock a carefully curated selection of DIY supplies for all your making needs, including yarn, fabric, sewing notions and more.
A few years ago Brett found vintage bargello pattern books. She fell in love! When she started to look for more modern patterns she noticed that there weren’t any option. Rather than be frustrated or disappointed Brett took this as an opportunity to create them herself, starting Hello Bargello.
Through her new passion project, Brett is brining back the lost art of Bargello.
