KNIT@NITE Welcome Party
Hosted by Josh Bennett and London Kaye
Thursday, July 16 6:00–7:00 PM Eastern
You’re invited to an exclusive KNIT@NITE Welcome Party with hosts Josh Bennett and London Kaye! The insanely popular weekly knitting event usually takes place at Alan Cumming’s NYC hotspot Club Cumming instead K@N will be virtually taking over Knitting LIVE! to throw a fiber-filled party. We are celebrating all of YOU (or should we say “ewe”?), because you are the fabric that holds us all together. Josh and London have unbe-weave-able surprises looming ahead.
Studio Tour with artist Carol Milne
Enjoy a guided tour of the sculpture studio where Carol Milne creates her knitted glass. She will highlight actual work in three dimensions (instead of 2D images) and give insights into why she does what she does. She will also share live demos of some of the steps in her process. To make this more like an actual studio visit & conversation, Carol will be answering questions as they come in. We want it to feel like you are actually with her in Seattle.
Knit in the Pit at Virtual Knitting LIVE!
hosted by Jon Giswold
Saturday, July 18 6:00–7:00 PM Eastern
Bringing the vibrant CommuKNITTY that began at the City by the Sea, Asbury Park, to Virtual Knitting LIVE! Jon welcomes special guests in for a visit and then takes a few questions for an interactive chat with some celebrities, indie dyers, and local yarn shop owners, engaging in conversations and inspiration for every fiber enthusiast. Jon loves promoting the small business owners, makers, and artists that nurture the craft we all love so much. Think of the warmth we all find sitting around the table at our own LYS—you’ll find that spirit at Knit in the Pit.
