The Fiber Arts Portal Nippy Hook will consist of three sections:

  1. A platform where users can manage their projects, interact, and can start their own shop where they sell homemade products, such as threads and patterns
  2. A knowledgebase that will include a “paid content” section and a ‘wiki’ where users will take care of the input themselves. The paid content section consists of a digitalized section of ancient techniques and patterns found in libraries and museums in Europe and the world.
  3. Tools will be offered to help users to realize their projects, including crochet hooks, knitting needles, shuttles and all that is needed to realize their projects. The pattern generating App in .pdf format contains each producers own (logo) watermark.
