Jacqueline Cieslak is a cultural anthropologist turned knitting pattern designer. Jacqueline is based in Charlottesville, Virginia. “My training as an anthropologist shapes my work as a fiber artist, which I approach with a critical, intersectional body positive agenda,” she says. “As a designer, I am deeply invested in creating patterns that are inclusive and accessible for a wide range of body types and abilities. I believe that creating clothes to fit your own body is a practice of self-care, and for those in the most marginalized bodies, it can be an act of resistance.” Jacqueline’s website contains clearly marked links to her Ravelry and Payhip shops.https://www.jacquelinecieslak.com
