World Wide Knitting in Public Day 2017
For the third consecutive year, we will be participating in the World Wide Knitting in Public Day.
This year will be a little different since our celebration will take place in Expolana (See more here: http://bit.ly/2siHOI3) and we will have a booth at the yarn festival too.
Here you can read the english version of the event communication text:
“El día Mundial del Tejido en Público, also known as World Wide Knitting in Public Day, is the world's largest knitting event and takes place every year in the month of June.
Born in Australia in 2005, this event was dreamed up by designer, knitter, and researcher Danielle Landes. It began as a gathering of knitters coming together to have fun, learn, and spread awareness of their chosen art form.
Our celebration will take place in Montevideo on Saturday, June 10th from 2:00 to 6:00 pm in Expolana (http://expolana.uy/) . Men and Women of all ages will meet, armed with their needles and hooks, to spend a nice afternoon doing what we love most, knitting!
As with every year, this day will have a significant cooperatively and charitable element since all knitted garments will be donated to Roosevelt School (http://www.escuelaroosevelt.org.uy/)
Everyone is welcome! Knitters, crocheters and yarn lovers should all come and join us. If someone wants to learn, we will gladly teach the basic techniques you need to get started in this world!
There is no charge for this event and you don’t even need to bring yarn, because it is being donated by malabrigo (http://www.malabrigoyarn.com). Simply bring yourself and needles sized between 6mm and 10mm. If you do not have them, loaner needles will be available from the popular craft store Las Labores (https://www.facebook.com/LASLABORESMERCERIA).
To complete the day of togetherness, we propose you to bring something delicious to share!”
Are you in Montevideo or near? If so, please join us! We would love to meet you there.
