Knitting a life in wild times
Anna, an Episcopalian solitary and a scholar of sorts, has spent the last 30 years on a mountain top coming down occasionally, mainly to teach at STITCHES. She has given us patterns in amazing colors, insights into the glory of socks, and a technical discourse on the craft of knitting. Through many decades of rapid change, she has watched the wax and wane of the fiber world with some wry humor and a great deal of devotion, seeing in it ultimately a microcosm of our best hopes for human survival.
Join us for a romp through Anna's life and times and her view of this ancient world of women's work—the work of making mere necessity both beautiful and celebratory. Come away proud of your place in it and confident of the contribution you make.
