Welcome to the Ja, Wol Community


Scroll to the bottom of the page if you want to join quickly! 


Conscious craft in community to inspire change, stitch by stitch. 


A community is more valuable with every member that joins. It's where people inspire and support each other, give and receive and can be their full self while navigating a complex world and enjoying their craft.

Communicating differently The community might look like a forum or a social media timeline in many ways. But it's not the look but the way we communicate in it that makes our community valuable to all. 

'Sharing is caring' differently We share our experience and experiences with each other to grow and learn from each other. It's not about likes, it's about learning. Because our community is behind a pay wall, we keep it safe from internet pests and offer a kind environment that makes you feel safe enough to share. It's like sitting around a table together and looking in each other's eyes. 

A different timeline A chronological timeline or filtering just what you want to see. Posts from your host. Posts from the groups you belong to or posts from people you follow. You can change the content of your timeline to your needs. So no weird algorithms. Can I get an 'Owwww yeah!!"?

Focussed on our focus There are absolutely no ads. I might mention a product or course I'm running every once in a while, but that's it. You will not be triggered, annoyed, or distracted by advertisements. 

Paying in a more constructive way  Free social media platforms are not free, you pay with information about your life. You are giving companies insights so they can target you directly in ways you don't even notice. Paying to become a member here will turn your money into a safe space because we don't have to attract companies for ads. It will help us to offer you information in an environment that is built TOGETHER with you. Decisions are not made ABOUT you but WITH you.

So if you were getting overwhelmed on social media, this is an opportunity to say goodbye to all of that and have all you need to grow and enjoy your craft practice here in a warm, safe, calm, and loving community.


  1. All makers and sellers in the needlecraft space that want to connect to likeminded folk

  2. Creatives that want to curate and create their closets more consciously in community

  3. Small emerging or established businesses in textile craft and slow fashion 


My name is Saskia, meaning as much as ‘short stone sword’. … just saying. I love Wes Anderson and Tim Burton movies and have way too many fountain pens. (deliberately not mentioning yarn...) I believe knitting with confidence and making conscious decisions in crafts, business and life will help you get more focus, make you feel les overwhelmed and get more done in less time! Making good and intentional decisions is a much more fun practice than you'd think. No blame and shame but an open and honest journey to a healthier lifestyle."

🪡  🧶 🧵 I show people how to bypass the fast fashion industry by making their own wardrobe through sustainable and conscious needle practices like knitting and sewing.  

🧘🏻 🌱 🌈 I help business owners in the field retrofit their soul based business and show them how to get the time and focus to work ON rather than just IN their business.

🤝 ❤️ ✏️ I then bring the two groups together in an online community that inspires and offers combined knowledge and accountability through memberships, events and courses. Turning lessons learned into immediate action.

🌙 ☀️ 💫 Growing a self supporting community that shares values and a wish for change away from the overwhelm of social media.

My motto: Buy Less, Buy Better, Make & Mend More, Make friends, Make it Last.
