Fiberside Chats!

   
This summer we are doing something new - hosting a Virtual Summer Crawl. 
Most of the 27 shops involved in the Fiberside Chats program will be participating.
Each week, on Sunday (3PM EDT) we will visit 3-4 shops. Explore new territory and meet some fantastic shop owners! These will be recorder and avialable on an "unlisted" YouTube channel for your review anytime. 
Our fabulous vendors have graciously donated a TON of gifts. Each week we will be drawing at least 10-12 folks to win a lovely package of goodies! You just need to be registered to be entered in the drawing not necessarily present at the Zoom meeting! 
So be sure to register now so you don't miss out! 

We have been able to connect with some great folks for our fall lineup -
check them out and be sure to register now. 
Can't make the day/time??  No worries most of our presenters are allowing us to 
record their presentation - at which time it will be available for you to watch for 7 days!

Traditional Danish Knitting

What do you do when you find there aren’t any books on your home country’s knitting heritage? If you’re Vivian Hoxbro – you make it your mission to write that missing book. Visiting her local museum and others, she diligently measured, photographed and drew the patterns of 89 historical sweaters. Six years later her book Traditional Danish Sweaters, including 200 patterns and 11 sweater designs, was complete. Zooming in live from Denmark Vivian will share her knowledge of Danish knitting history and inspire us to cast-on a piece of her heritage!

This is a live Zoom Event on Sunday, September 25th at 1:00pm Eastern, 12:00pm Central, 11:00am Mountain, 10:00am Pacific.

“Knitting - Strange and True Facts, History and Stories.”

So, some mirror neurons, stilts, a red pair of stockings and the truth about video games go into the French Revolution and well, even I can’t pretend that’s the set up for a good joke, but when you join me for our hour together at Fiberside Chats, I’ll tell you what they have in common. (Hint: It’s knitting, and everything about it that is strange but true and it’s going to be a lot of fun.)

This is a live Zoom Event on Sunday, October 23rd at 1:00pm Eastern, 12:00pm Central, 11:00am Mountain, 10:00am Pacific.
