About Humans that Yarn:
Yarn encompasses a wide array of crafts, including knitting, crochet, macrame, weaving, punch needle and much more. But more than that, yarn encompasses a wide array of people. Humans That Yarn (HTY) is an inclusive campaign that aims to showcase all the different types of crafts that can be made with yarn and the different types of people who identify as a yarnist.
