Meet Maya B of Knit with Attitude
Bring your WIP’s, Queries and ears
January’s meeting is with Maya B of the wonderful Knit with Attitude.
Maya will be talking to us about how the craft and particular the yarn industry has been affected by environmental and political issues and how this led to her setting up Knit with Attitude , which specialises in eco-friendly, ethical yarns. Along the way she will touch on the growth of the craft industry in recent years and show us some of her projects.
Maya will be joined by Siobhan Beatty of SNUG, the Stoke Newington Green Users Group. They have been “Knitting the Common” as a community arts project. Creating a 3D model of the Common, which will be displayed in Hackney Museum as part of the Hello Cazenove exhibition starting in January 2014.
Maya and Siobhan will also be answering all your knitting and crochet queries during the second half of the evening, so feel free to bring your WIPs (works in progress) with any queries. We will also have some tables set up to teach knitting or crocheting or to help “stitch the Common for” SNUG.This meeting is free for members, but there is a £5 charge for visiting non members
