StevenBe is more than a store. He’s more than a person. And we want to make sure he’s more than just a one-time experience. We want to share him with the world! 

This is a Kickstarter campaign to fund a short reality series starring none other than the “Be” in StevenBe. We are people who know television. We’ve worked in it cumulatively for over 50 years. We’ve created hit shows. We’ve taken things to the next level. That’s what this Kickstarter campaign is all about. Help us take Steven higher by participating in his television debut.

We’ve already shot and edited "StevenBe Sizzle: Meet the Cast" (bit.ly/SBSizzle) and the "Kickstarter Video: Steven Through the Looking Glass." 

We've also shot "EpisodeOne: Knit York" at Vogue Knitting Live this past January. So much fun yet so much ... chaos. But that's what makes this man, and this show. It's never easy. But it's always entertaining. 

What we’re planning to do in March, regardless of the outcome of the Kickstarter campaign, is road trip across the country to Pittsburgh with Steven and his crew for "EpisodeTwo: Knittsburgh." We don't want to ruin the ending, but tuning into this one is a MUST!!

We are very cost-conscious, but following this man around takes more than hard work and passion! 

And so does creating entertaining, exciting content. We would love to put 5-6 finished episodes out for fans to enjoy. So far each seems funnier than the last, and the experiences and shenanigans only seem to multiply.

Help us share Steven with you. Help us share him with the world. Please pledge to our Kickstarter campaign today.

Risks and challenges

The risks involved in this project are high for us, slim to none for you. Our goal overall is to make this content soar - and to get the attention of a television network.

While we would love to continue following Steven around the world forever (isn’t that what everyone wants?), it is challenging to keep up with him. He has so many ideas about spreading his knowledge & passion for the fiber arts, that we must keep our crew small and our budget lean. We will stretch these funds as far as we can to keep helping Steven spread the message that the fiber arts are every bit as exciting as he is.

The funding from this Kickstarter campaign will help us to create a following that speaks for itself. Fans will be excited to tune in to see the Glitter Knitter and his Fiber Family as who they are, what they do, and to fall in love with them. Our goal is for this show to create a life of its own, and to bring the networks to us.

That’s why we need you. We need the financing to have the opportunity to show to others what we already know - that this is hilarious. That this is original and the world is ready for StevenBe and his empire.
