About Aimee Sher Makes
Hello there! Here at Aimee Sher Makes, we are dedicated to creating a joyful knitting and wearing experience for you through our knitting patterns.
Founder & Lead Product Designer
Aimee Sher is a Taiwanese American knitter, spinner, and sometimes sewist and weaver who has a passion for thoughtful design details. Aimee jumped into knitwear design in 2021 because she was inspired by the foods and experiences and creations of the Asian American diaspora.
All of their work is aimed at elevating makers in marginalized communities as well as bringing attention to small batch farmers, mills, or specialty dyers. She loves working with others to lift the tide and elevate all.
Aimee Sher patterns are crafted with intention. When you knit one of her patterns, you are sharing in the inspiration she gets from around the world in places that she has lived in. Her patterns are thoughtfully crafted to create joy in the ordinary things for you, even down to the simplest act of making fabric you love from yarn.
Patterns by Aimee Sher can be seen at Pom Pom Magazine, Making Magazine, Woolfolk, and KnitPicks.
You can also watch Aimee talk more about their making and designing process at the Thoughtfully Made Fiber Podcast on YouTube. In March-April 2021, Aimee founded and hosted the #KnitDiverseKAL with you, the knitting community, to celebrate and elevate LGBTQIA+ and POC makers and businesses in the fiber community.
Having 10 years of piano teaching experience, as well as experience teaching at Vogue Knitting Live and similar institutions, Aimee brings all of that knowledge to create easy to understand and well-crafted patterns at the highest standards.
Reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or your organization would like to engage her to design, teach, do individual consults, speak, or write on fiber equity topics and knitting.
