WWW: P3 Retreat returns; Establishing a Knitting Heritage Museum; One Hat Every 2.5 Days; Cupcakes!
The brainchild of our editor, Amy Singer and her friend and colleague Brenda Dayne [creator and host of the Cast On podcast], theÂ Plug+Play Pembrokeshire Retreat is returning for a triumphant second year, this October 2012! You’ll find all the Retreat details here.
Registration opens May 15th, 2012.
To make it easier for you to ask questions, Amy and Brenda have set up a forum in Ravelry, where you can ask anything and get an answer pretty quickly. Lots of last year’s attendees visit the forum, so if you want some of their perspectives, just ask!
Okay, we’re biased, but we think this is the event not to miss in 2012!
The group is seeking active participation in interactive forums and discussion groups to help determine how best to preserve and secure the valuable legacy of our knitting and crochet heritage. The symposium will be held Nov. 8-10, 2012, on the campus of the University of Wisconsin in downtown Madison, WI.
We just missed this year’s spring Carolina Fiber Frolic, but planning is underway for a fall event November 9-11, and the dates have been announced for next spring, March 22-24, 2013.
A fun slide show and profile of the Gorilla Knitting Crew, a yarn-bombing group in Sacramento, CA. What’s notable about this crew is that it’s a family! Candice and Adam Foster and their four kids, Bella, 13, Nieyah, 7, AJ, 6, and Lukas, 4, started the Crew last summer. In addition to decorating the city and its landmarks, the team also makes hats for the homeless and leaves them lying around for the needy to find.
