Shetland Adventuring with Gudrun and Mary Jane
Shetland is known worldwide for its exquisite lace knitting and distinctive Fair Isle colorwork knitting. Less known is how these arts are born out of a culture of thrift and economy, both in materials and time. In this lecture, Mary Jane and Gudrun take you for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of their new book and share some commonalities between these two knitting disciplines and enthuse on the subject of Shetland in general.
For 10 years, the duo led groups of avid knitters to the islands on Grand Shetland Adventures, their signature, once-in-a-lifetime trips, and now, you're invited too! They'll introduce you to their favorite places in the isles, highlighting yarn producers, textile makers, crofters, and favorite walks in the wild outdoors. Come along for the journey!
This is a live Zoom Event on Sunday, November 19th at 1:00pm Eastern, 12:00pm Central, 11:00am Mountain, 10:00am Pacific. Your ZOOM Link will be sent the evening before and about 1 hour before the event. Check your spam filter if you do not see it. THIS CHAT WILL BE RECORDED
