4. FFT: Spinning a Good Yarn: A Cross-Canada Road Trip
September 23 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
*** POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE ***
Anyone who’s ever been gifted a hand-knit item (or gone through the effort of making one) will understand the artistry, time, and care that goes into the craft. In Unravelling Canada: A Knitting Odyssey, author, storyteller, and knitting designer Sylvia Olsen takes us on a cross-country knitting journey that touches on Canadian history, political, economic, and social issues. Sylvia reveals how knitting embodies the personal and communal, the practical and the artistic, local and outsider influences, and often the skill sets of women and marginalized communities.
Bring your knitting needles and projects to work on as you listen!
