The Symposium starts this afternoon!!
Amazingly, June Hemmons Hiatt, author of the masterwork, “The Principles of Knitting,” now in its second edition, is coming. Trisha Malcolm of Vogue Knitting shared the info with her and she is coming. As a History scholar, June sees this effort as important. We are thrilled (and humbled) to have her attend.
We have a great facilitator to guide our discussions so that we emerge with strategic directions on Saturday. So exciting!!!
The Wisconsin State Journal had a great article this past Sunday. Check out the pix of the Curators’ Choice Exhibit, and a preview of the work over the next three days.
I can tell that this Project is being taken seriously, because a developer of software to manage digital collections has emailed us with an urgent sales pitch – all the way from New Zealand!!
The Symposium closes with a book signing. The following authors of Knit and Crochet Books, that build our skills, inspire our designs, and keep our hooks busy and needles clicking will join us.
Mary Germaine, Therese Chynoweth, Beverly Gordon, June Hemmons Hiatt, Judy Swartz Marcus, Janet Rehfeldt,Stahman, Susan Strawn, and Sheryl Thies.
Drop by to meet them.
Sorry no time to upload .jpgs or links!!!
Thanks for the well wishes from around the world, as we “cast-off” to make history.
